If you are looking for a wonderful place to x-country ski in the wintertime, this is the place to come to! There is often snow at Maplelag when there is very little anywhere else--it is like driving into a winter wonderland! They do a wonderful job keeping the trails expertly groomed. There is a good mix of trails from beginner to more advanced. If you don't ski and just to relax, there are endless places in the lodge to sit and read, knit or work a puzzle. Next, the food... it's awesome! Most meals are served family style... it is not your typical institutional food.. everything is made from scratch. Maplelag is quite the unique place.. the owners have decorated the lodge with treasures they have collected from all over the world. The accomodations are unique also... no too are the same. If you are not into the dormitory rooms, you can choose one of the cabooses or one of the smaller cabins. Kids love Maplelag-- with the sledding hill, the ice rink, ping pong, games and puzzles in the lodge, there is always something to do. I will say, however, that Maplelag is rustic... if that is not your thing you may not be happy here. Likewise, if the sounds of happy children running around in the lodge bothers you, you may not be happy here either. We always look forward to our weekend at Maplelag!
