I have stayed at Maplelag several times to cross country ski and can't recommend it enough. It's a family owned business and they seem to consider their employees family as well. As a result, guests are treated as family too. The cross country ski trails are excellent and fat bike trails have been added. The trail conditions are updated on...

Thanks for the review and highlighting the family fun at Maplelag. A priority for us is to have everyone feel at home and comfortable. It has been a joy to see the families come back each year, watching the kids grow up and now those grown up kids are having kids! We look forward to your return.

We went to Maplelag to cross country ski in January 2017. The conditions were excellent and the trails were well groomed. We also snowshoed and rode fat tire mountain bikes. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. The delicious meals were served family style and we enjoyed meeting fellow guests. We were treated like family by the owners and staff....

I enjoy staying at Maplelag and the skiing is always fun. They do a great job of making the best of whatever snow they have. The food is always good and plentiful. I've been staying at Maplelag since the early 90s and plan to continue to return however it would be great to see the cabins updated and some remodeling....

We are a family of xc skiers of two generations. We travelled all the way to Maplelag from NC and it was well worth it. The accommodations were comfortable, the lodge, food and amenities were outstanding. The trails and the skiing were fantastic. The owners are interesting, friendly and attentive. The best part for skiers is the variety of trails....

We stayed at Maplelag resort for the weekend of my cousin's wedding and had a magnificent time! There was so much to do to keep our kids busy, and it was a beautiful rustic cabin that we got to stay in! Everything was well maintained and kept very clean!

Perfect getaway for all ages. It was our first time cross country skiing and definitely not our last! The staff were all very kind and helpful. We stayed in a cozy caboose and ate wonderful home cooked meals each day. Definitely a family tradition in the making!
