We just returned to Philadelphia from a week of cross country and snowshoeing at Lapland Lake. We stayed in one of the cozy and comfortable cottages and enjoyed daily skiing immediately outside our door. Although the cottages are heated, we enjoyed warming up by the wood stove. Wood was delivered daily to our cottage. We have visited annually over the... More

I have been a cross country skier for over 40 years, visiting trails all over the east and parts of the west. Lapland Lake is a standout- for the quality of the trails, the terrific grooming, and the amount of snow they receive. I have visited many times over the years. Most of the trails are one way, and brilliantly... More

Just an hour north of Albany Lake Lapland provides in our mind the best trail and track system. And snow! And great service for the skiers. The Scandinavian touch adds to the experience. As a retired person I can enjoy perfectly groomed trails every day in the week. I just came back from the cold Valentine/presidents weekend. The wind never... More

We recently returned from yet another wonderful trip to Lapland Lake Cross Country Ski Center. We went skiing in the mornings and then snowshoeing in the afternoons. Visited the Finnish sauna twice - very relaxing. In the evenings we read or played board games in our well furnished, cozy tupa. The beds were very comfortable. There is free wifi in... More

It is a beautifull small place with very cosy cabins. The (former) owner was born in Finland (that is why the name) and has cabins just as in Scandinavia. We stayed in a cozy cabin with kitchen and a fireplace. Wood was provided every day and we also could use a barbecue grill. The lodge has a nice lobby/reception, where... More

We've been here a couple of times now in the last few years. Once under the original ownership and once under the new ownership. Both times were highly enjoyable. We've rented XC equipment from them for use on their land and we've also done some snow shoeing there. The trails are excellently maintained for both sports. Classes are also conducted... More

Top-notch XC Ski Center. When they say immaculately groomed trails, they're absolutely correct! Overnight cabins/tupas are nice, warm, comfortable and conveniently located a few steps away from the main lodge with a wood-fueled sauna available for overnighters. Can ski out/in to your own cabin/tupa. There's a wax shop open w/free US-long distance phone available 24/7. Tasty Finnish meals. Warm and... More

We've never had a bad time at Lapland Lakes. The place is always welcoming and well cared for. The rates are reasonable and the trails are quite scenic as they wind through the woodland of the southern Adirondacks. It's always been a favorite place to spend a winter day and this day was no exception. It was a Monday morning,... More

Lapland Lakes is our favorite family vacation place for many reasons. First of all, the trails are expertly groomed and meticulously maintained. Once you ski here, other places will not measure up. Secondly, we love to unplug - in the cottages, there is no TV, phone, cell service or internet (you can get internet in the lodge if you need... More
