I have been to maplelag a total of three times. The first 2 times were in the summer and my most recent was during the winter. I love this resort in every season but it was exceptionally fun in the winter because the cross country skiing trails were amazing and it is so nice to come back to the cozy...

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....

My new husband and I have spent short weekends at Maplelag in the past for cross country skiing and mountain biking, so when we were looking to have a "destination type" wedding, where our guests could come stay for a weekend without having to rent a hotel or drive, Maplelag was at the top of our list and they did...

I've been going here since they opened in the 70's. It is the best x cty ski resort in MN. Family owned, once you come, you feel like you are part of the family. The snow cover can be terrible all over the state but you come here in the winter and it is snow paradise. They manage to catch...

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! We were worried about the shared cabins, but everyone is so...

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!

As one of the hosts of an annual Fall scrapbooking retreat at Maplelag over the last 15 years, I can truly say that the Richards family and staff are what make this special resort stand apart from all others!

Our annual scrapbooking weekend celebrated its 15th year anniversary at Maplelag this past weekend. Every year we enjoy the wonderful accommodations and staff who make up the unique experience that is essence of Maplelag. The food is always plentiful and simply scrumptious. Along with the bottomless cookie jars and Sunday brunch you can't go wrong with a stay at Maplelag.
