Lapland Lake is our favorite getaway whether it's summer or winter. We come for the peace and quiet and love our favorite cozy tupa, Pohjan, which recently was remodeled with hardwood floors, a nice complement to the warm wood paneling. Woods Lake is all we need to keep ourselves busy, paddling around in a canoe, visiting the beaver lodges and... More

Our family loved the week at Lapland Lake. The cabins were well kept and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we found far more to do in the area than we could manage in one week. Enjoying the beautiful lake and woods on site was our first pleasure, and it was easy to manage with kids.

Our family spent a week at this beautiful and peaceful resort in June 2014. This was our seventh visit and, as always, well worth the drive up from NYC. It is clean, safe, has a beach and lots of boats. In other words, perfect for young children and their parents. The absence of cell phone coverage is an added plus.

We stayed for 7 days in Pulkka cottage. I enjoyed having one of the 2 cabins with a queen sized bed. The bathroom was newly renovated & spacious. The bedrooms are a bit small as you might expect in a cottage but completely satisfactory: nightstands, dressers, curtains & comfortable beds. The kitchen is stocked well with all the basic necessities... More

This is really two reviews in one. Back in March I stayed at Lapland with a friend of mine for an extended weekend of cross-country skiing. It was our first time at Lapland Lake in winter and we were not disappointed. In fact, we felt like we had landed on a maple syrup bottle. As we’d ski by the little... More

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.
