Accommodations are basic yet comfortable and immaculate and kitchens are fully equipped.The wood stoves provide a nice touch and wood is delivered to your tupa.

I have skied at Lapland Lake previously and know that the trail grooming is top notch and that it is located in a wonderful snow pocket. This winter, a friend and I decided to stay a couple of nights in one of the tupas. That was a good decision! The tupa was clean and fully equipped. All of them have... More

We stayed at the lodge at the Lapland Lake. Lodge is basic, but comfortable, and definitely with a Finnish character. Food at the Grille is very average. Finnish plate was not what I expected and soup was heavy. They have sauna on premises, very small, with very weird hours of operation. They are open when people want to ski -... More

Spent a very pleasant Sunday in the sun. Excellent track setting and fairly good signage. Nice meal at the yellow restaurant. Well worth the drive. Should have gone years ago. Did not check prices at ski shop. Good snow shoe trail along the lake.

A friend and I had not been to Lapland Lake for 2 years, but immediately felt at home when we arrived. Our tupa was very comfortable and the ski and snowshoe trails were well groomed. It is amazing how peaceful and tranquil it is in the woods. There is a Finnish sauna that is wonderful. We had lunch in the... More

I'd never been to the Adirondacks before and this was the perfect introduction. Our 'tupa' was beautiful, lovely and warm with the woodstove (in which a fire had been laid for our arrival), and spotlessly clean. The location is gorgeous with a huge lake and boats which we took out every day (at no extra cost). Ann, Olavi and Mike... More

Olavi, Ann, Mike, Pat and crew have created a heavenly oasis deep in the Adirondacks! Peace, tranquility, breathtaking beauty and great cabins. No snow when I was there but the "Fall" colours were extra-ordinary!! Hurrah

Lapland Lake was the most amazing place for our family to just stop, get off the treadmill and just be for a while. It was brilliant to switch of completely and relax in stunning surroundings. We have small children and they had a blast. The roping of the swimming area at different depths really helped me to feel at ease... More
