We have always enjoyed our stay at Lapland Lake. We come up twice a year, once in the winter to cross country ski and once in the summer to enjoy the lake, the trails and the peace and quiet. The cabin is well furnished and the kitchen cooking equipment has what we need. We are glad that the cabins are... More

Such a peaceful place ! The new owners are doing a great job of keeping the beloved old traditions and adding new.They are up-grading some of the tupas.The beach is great, especially for young children. So the magic continues - its still a welcome respite from life's stressors.

This place just fits me right. Everytime. The grounds are, in a word - gorgeous. Besides the lush greenery, there's dots of color from wildflowers, and the sunlight raking through the trees is mesmerizing. Occasionally - more often than you might expect actually - wildlife scampers by; turkeys and deer seem to be abundant, but humming birds, raccoons and chipmunks... More

This was our first time skiing here. We didn't stay overnight because we wanted to eat dinner somewhere and the restaurant was closed for the season. We brought our 5 year old daughter here. She had a great time, as did we. Lots of great trails at varying levels. Excellent grooming everyday, with tracks. The scenery was pristine; a winter... More

This is a unique and wonderful cross-country skiing vacation center. I have stayed here many times over the past two winters and was just there this past weekend. First, the skiing. The ski conditions were just about perfect this past weekend and this is no accident because the grooming is always done perfectly by Olavi, a Finnish Olympian, who is... More

My husband, 9 year old son and I stayed in Pulka Tupa for 4 nights. It was incredibly cozy and a real winter wonderland. We lit our fire nightly with the well stocked supplies, and enjoyed the Finnish Sauna at the end of each day of skiing. The trails were beautiful and varied. The kitchen was well stocked for self...

Lapland Lake is an absolute gem! The tupas are very cozy and comfortable. Trails are absolutely beautiful and well groomed. Owners and staff are friendly and go out of their way to make their guests feel like family. It's a perfect place to unplug and enjoy beautiful scenery!

We stayed in a Tupa (cottage) that was clean, warm and comfortable. The wood burning stove is a nice touch. The staff and owners are warm, friendly and helpful. The trails are excellently groomed and accommodate all levels of cross country skiers. The snow shoe trails are good. Night skiing is also available as are tubing and ice skating. This... More

My husband and I and our toddler escaped to Lapland Lake for a birthday getaway, and went for one of the 2 bedroom Tupas (cabins). It was very cozy (although the bed in the "master" bedroom was only a full and way too tiny for us), and decently equipped, but I sort of couldn't believe our final bill at the... More

My boyfriend and I visited the center last weekend for a snowshoe/animal tracking tour. We wanted to get out of the house and this seemed like the perfect idea. We are both nature lovers and really enjoy learning about nature and animals. The tour was advertised as $23 plus a facilities use fee. The first thing that we were disappointed... More

We are very sorry you were disappointed with your experience and regret that our offer of two complimentary facility use passes did not work for you. This tour is advertised and geared to novice snowshoers. We feel the advertised cost of $23 for the tour and equipment rental plus $22 facility use fee (totaling $45 per person) is a fair... More
