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... More

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!

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.
