My sister and her family of five (ages 50, 46, 14, 12 and 10) invited my family of four (53, 51, 11, 9) to our first visit to Maplelag. We stayed in "Candy Store". Very nice rooms. Not luxury but really comfortable. Great for families or active groups of youth or adult. Friendly owners/hosts, really good home cooking with exceptionally accommodating dishes for folks eating gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian etc. very fun built in activities like the dance evening and the talent show. BYOB to meals or the lodge was nice way to handle folks wanting a drink. The skiing trails and grooming were fantastic. Especially in this drought year in MN. ANother must do is the lakeside sauna and jumping in the lake! no tvs which we liked, but there is wifi in the lodge and lots of folks used it on their iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or other non apple devices. We paid for the linen package instead of bringing our own. Very worth it I think. This kind of place is a labor of love by a dedicated family. One that seems to be set up well to make the generational transfer when the time comes. We hope that's the case because the Maplelag community will be the better for it!
