My family and I have visited Maplelag a number of times over the course of my life and on every trip we find ourselves leaving with the warmest feeling in our bellies. Maplelag offers an experience that is completely unique. From the incredible antique decorative collections on display in the main lodge to the wonderful care given in grooming the... More

Maplelag is just wonderful if you like to park the car and not get back in until you have to leave. Miles and miles of beautiful cross country ski trails, lovingly maintained, for you to earn your ample and delicious meals. One of the few wood-fired saunas that offers an authentic experience, including a dip in an ice-covered lake if... More

If you're ever near Detroit Lakes, MN and you love to xc ski, check out this gem. Great trails, great staff, and a pristine setting. We have not yet stayed there but plan to do so next winter. They also allow mountain biking and we can't wait to get back tor that. This is a Gem.

We just returned from 3 nights at the Maplelag Resort. They hosted the annual Indigenous Farming Conference that we attended. What a perfect venue for our group! The facility was wonderful, our room in the Northern Pacific building ideal, and the food was delicious. Our kids went cross country skiing and said the trails were amazing. The lodge was perfect...

This place was wonderful if you are all about rustic, which I am. No TV, no computers, no phones (there is Wi-Fi at the main lodge), just peace, quite and comfortable surroundings. The woods are beautiful to ski through and the trails are well maintained. The hot tub is always hot and the food, well, the food is fabulous; from... More

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...
