Excellent lodging, food, and hospitality at this family-owned resort. Miles of ski trails, all impeccably groomed and tracked. This was our ski club's first trip to Maplelag, and we will surely return.

It is a bad year for snow in Minnesota, but Maplelag had 6 inches at the end of February. The trails are well-groomed for classic skiing and have something for everyone from the novice to the old hands. And no matter how cold it gets, nothing beats the hot lunch or dinner waiting for you at the lodge.

After my second trip to Maplelag, I just had to leave them a glowing review. My girlfriend and I are now annual visitors during the long President's Day Weekend, and we look forward to it every year (just 362 more days until our next trip!). The cross country ski trails are perfect for folks who want to get some outdoor... More

I am a novice cross-country ski person who came here with a group of ladies who make it an annual event. We stayed in a dorm-style cabin and had an absolute blast. Conditions were not ideal for a learner, a bit icy and not enough fresh snow, but I did have a nice run on the easier trails anyway as... More

My husband and I just returned from our fifth "Ski and Be" ski/yoga trip to Maplelag and without a doubt we are already looking forward to next year! The Richards family are gracious hosts, creating an atmosphere that's welcoming and attentive to the needs of their guests. Jay's skill as a groomer is amazing, especially this year as he works...

Our large family loves outdoor activities and Maplelag provides many options for every age. We range in age from 6 to 75 years old with approximately 20-25 members making the trek each year. We can ski, sled, ice fish and play hockey all within walking range of the cabins. The kids particularly love the lodge for the bottomless cookie jar... More

The girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing time bringing in the new year. I'd never actually been before and my girlfriend, a Minnesota native and Maplelag frequenter, hadn't been since high school, but everything was just great. Very fun destination to spend a winter weekend if you get the chance and just really great people running the place. Appreciate... More

Just wanted to say what a great job Jay and the Maplelag staff did at this year's Minnesota Mountain Bike Series "Laddies Loppett." As usual, the food is very good and the "bottomless" cookie jars were awesome (if one was not on a diet). The trails were in very good shape despite the rain, and Jay did an excellent job... More

Thanks for your stay and kinds words Jim. We very much appreciate your visit during the Laddies Loppet weekend. The rain looked to make things interesting but all in all it turned out good. Hope to see you next year! More

Please read this thoroughly to understand the range of both advantages and possible shortcomings of this property. Another reviewer had the same surprise I had about accommodations here. Maplelag, in most rooms we saw, has camp [dormitory] style accommodations, and not what most people in Minnesota would describe as a fancy lakeside resort. Most guests here are winter cross-country skiers... More
