My family makes this our reunion spot for our annual get together. We stay for a long weekend and love it because we each have a space for ourselves (our cabin) and have multiple options to have activities together (outdoor games, fires, swimming, kayaking, hiking). It gives us all the freedom to do as we please with whatever members of the family we feel like without completely separating ourselves from the group as a whole. (Saves a lot of probable family aggravation!!). Love this place and will continue to come for as long as they let us. (Watch out for the bugs though. They are brutal in the summer)

We stayed for four days and enjoyed every single minute. There was so much to do including kayaking, swimming, and hiking. Our favorite hike on the property was the snowshoe trail. Our cabin had every thing we needed to cook all of our own meals. The bonfire pit was a perfect spot to enjoy family time each night. Kathy and Paul were incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations for area hikes. We are already planning our next trip back.

This is our 4th summer visit to Lapland lake resort. It is the perfect way to spend outdoor time together. The lake and water activities are beautiful and so fun. The cabins are great and comfortable. The nightly wood fires outside, the hiking and biking trails, fishing, and the games to borrow top it all off.

Every year I go with a group of friends to Lapland Lake to celebrate my birthday. It is just fabulous. The trails are always groomed perfectly, the tupas are delightful and the owners and staff are terrific. We were there last weekend and with fresh snow it was just magical - literally like landing in Narnia. Add night-time skiing followed by a fondue in your lovely tupa with a roaring fire and how can you go wrong?

I have been going to Lapland Lake for many years and it never disappoints. (Though the weather/snow might). Now, the new owners are as attentive and helpful as the original owners. The tupas are cozy and clean. Lapland Lake is my little bit of paradise.
