Perfect getaway for all ages. It was our first time cross country skiing and definitely not our last! The staff were all very kind and helpful. We stayed in a cozy caboose and ate wonderful home cooked meals each day. Definitely a family tradition in the making!

Our annual scrapbooking weekend celebrated its 15th year anniversary at Maplelag this past weekend. Every year we enjoy the wonderful accommodations and staff who make up the unique experience that is essence of Maplelag. The food is always plentiful and simply scrumptious. Along with the bottomless cookie jars and Sunday brunch you can't go wrong with a stay at Maplelag.

We have been to Maplelag several times. Back when the boys were is school we went every winter. This year was a trip down memory lane - only problem was lack of snow but we still skied about 45 km in three days

Thanks for the most energetic review! Keeping the sauna hot and the hole open in the ice isn't easy in the dead of winter but worth it for guests like yourselves that help make Maplelag a special place.

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.
