We just spent an amazing President's Day weekend at Lapland as a post-Valentine's Day celebration. We arrived pretty late Friday night, but found our Poro Tupa ready to welcome us with everything we needed, including coffee maker, kitchen utensils, paper towels etc. It was also nice to have it pre-heated for us. The cottages are old-fashioned, but that is part...

We spent two nights in the coziest and most rustic little cabin imaginable, and loved every minute of it. The trails are kept in good shape and are well marked, and the staff was extremely helpful and reasonable in helping me with an equipment problem. Looking forward to returning in future winters... PS And the evening meals you can order...

My children, grandchildren and I meet here every year for our winter getaway, a tradition begun when my kids were young. The cabins are immaculate and well-equipped, the scenery glorious and the trails expertly groomed.

We had such a lovely time at this isolated ski center. The snow kept falling all weekeend, the skiing was great, the tupa was cozy and the woodstove kept us warm. Highlights wee the night skiing down to the bonfire by the frozen lake, the sauna and the meals delivered to your fridge. Beds were comfy and the kitchen was...

We visited Lapland Lake Nordic Ski center for one day in early January. It is quite remote and beautiful property but also too expensive and not very customer friendly. Before we could even get into the parking lot, we each had to pay $23 just for facility use even for snowshoeing and tubing and that's before the rental cost. With...

I've been up here the last 2 years for the family friendly xc skiing. I stayed in one of the tupas no Wi-Fi, no tv, it is very basic, rustic. You really have to bring up any food you want if you are staying on site because the meal service is extremely limited in both availability and choices. The lodging...

We are glad you enjoyed the skiing – we take pride in the design and maintenance of our private trail system. We hope you will come to see us again, even if just for the day. Our lack of television is intentional to help guests unwind and get away from it all for a while. We do know that people...

We took my wife's cross country skis up last weekend and left them for waxing. Today we went back to pick them up and I got a new set of skis, boots, binding and poles for a great package price. The owners and staff are knowledgeable and very helpful and we now have everything we need for the upcoming season....except...

The cabins at Lapland Lake are very charming. I'm sure these cabins are perfect for the ski season, but for summer/automn, these are wonderful too! We (family with 2 kids, ages 4 and 5) stayed here last weekend, as a nice closure of summer holidays and begin of the indian summer. There are several cabins to rent, we stayed at...

We visited Lapland Lake with extended family, staying in a four-bedroom tupa, Latu. Everyone in the group from age 2 to 68 had a great time, with swimming, boating and fishing in the lake, campfires at night, and lots of relaxing, togetherness time. The adults in the group also enjoyed the afternoon wood-burning sauna time in the main building. The...
