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

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

We go to Maplelag every year and look forward to our trip virtually all year long. The Richards family is so welcoming, the food is just great (and plenty of it!), the accommodations are nice and YES, the skiing is excellent. Jay keeps the trails in great shape, even when the conditions aren't the greatest. The Swedish pancakes, Jim's popcorn... More

I've been to Maplelag for cross country skiing many times since 1997 and each experience has been awesome. Ski trails are constantly groomed and offer a wide variety of trails for every level of skiing. Food is delicious home cooked meals and incredible desserts. And the cookie jar is always full of very tasty treats. The Richards families are very... More

My husband and I spent one night (2 days) at Maplelag this past weekend. We had a wonderful time skiing, eating the delicious food, and just relaxing together. The staff is friendly, the accommodations are clean, and the food is whole and hearty. The ski trails through the pristine woods will quicken your heart and quiet your soul. We will... More

We visited Maplelag for the first time 10 years ago, invited to join friends for Presidents Day weekend. We have gone back every year. The Richards family welcomes you and makes the stay special. The x-country skiing is the best we have ever experienced. Even when the rest of the state has little or no snow, Maplelag has had just... More

This was my first time at Maplelag and I was in the minority. This cross country ski resort is an annual migration for the majority of the guests, with some coming once a year for more than 30 years. The ski trails were amazingly groomed, the family owned resort was huge with a hot tub, nooks for talking, reading, email,... More
