Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center is a magical place. I've been in the winter and the summer. It's beautiful, low key and peaceful. Perfect for families, couples or solo travelers looking for a quiet vacation. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing during the summer. It's a beautiful place to cross country ski or snowshoe during the winter. The tupas (cottages) are comfortable and well maintained.

First with our children and then on our own, my husband and I have stayed in a tupa (cottage) at Lapland Lake for 29 years. The skiing is fabulous and the tupas cozy. Trail grooming is excellent. We look forward to coming next year for our 30th year!

I've skied at many XC ski centers and this is by far my favorite. Extensive trail network, the best and most consistent trail grooming I've seen and a chill vibe. Lapland is three hours away from me and I almost don't mind the drive.

We make regular trips to Lapland Lake to cross country ski. The atmosphere is friendly and you are treated like family. The trails are well kept, well marked, and beautiful! There is a well stocked equipment shop where you can get great advise on your next pair of skis or something to keep you warm. There is a food truck selling amazing mac and cheese! I get it topped with pulled pork to recharge after skiing. I’m lucky to live only 90 minutes away from this gem in the Adirondacks!

Spent a lovely weekend skiing and relaxing in our Tupa. The Tupa had everything we needed-well equipped kitchen, wood stove, comfy beds and easy access to all ski trails. They restocked us with wood, kindling and newspaper daily. The ski trails were well-groomed and the staff is lovely. Can't wait to go back :)

Really enjoyed the nordic cross country skiing. Well maintained. All levels of skill can participate. Rentals all available on site. Beautiful surroundings. Hard to beat. Had the family and was easy to have my 1 y/o daughter ski with us in their child tow toboggan.

A group of us came to the area from Delaware and enjoyed three days of skiing and snowshoeing. The trails are well maintained and the lodge is comfortable and welcoming, with equipment sales and rentals available.

My family (two adults, 2 children) and two friends had a great stay at the Latu lodge at Lapland. We enjoyed skate skiing, classic skiing, tubing on the hill and night skiing. It was such a treat to be able to ski right outside our door! We brought in all our food, but did enjoy mac and cheese from the food truck. We were able to ski each day on groomed trails and get warm in the lodge and eat some food (brought or purchased).

We stayed in one of the Tupa's for three nights and used the snowshoe trails for multiple days. The trails were in great shape, the staff was very helpful and friendly, the ski shop and snack bar were well stocked. Our Tupa was comfortable but this is not a luxury accommodation. The kitchen was stocked with cookware and dishes, dish soap and towels, coffee pot and filters. Linens and towels were provided as well as the firewood needed for our wood stove. Fresh firewood was placed on our porch each day for that nights use. Our steps to our cabin(Tupa) were shoveled and sweep and sand applied each day we stayed. I also took advantage of a XC ski lesson and was pleased to be able to learn as much as I did in one hours time. The instructor, although young, was excellent and patient. I would highly recommend Lapland if you are interested in XC or snowshoeing. I would also recommend packing your breakfasts, and dinners if staying in their Tupa's. They had frozen catered meals available for dinner, but we found them to be less than satisfactory. Bring your trays of lasagna that you can get several nights out of. Or drive into Northville, a 15 min drive which is what we did each night.
