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...

I found the cabin I had to be clean and comfortable. Even though there is no air conditioning it was not needed during this late August visit. There was plenty of firewood to have a fire outside and a grill was available as well. The boats, sauna and hiking trails are all included as part of the cabin fee. Owners...

Peaceful,serene and simply perfect. The Tupa was exactly as described when we arrived. The lake was crystal clear. We were also blessed with fantastic weather. I will definitely be back. Hoping to return this fall when the beautiful colors will be on full display. Thank you again Kathy and Paul for a wonderful experience.

We just returned from Lapland Lake and had an amazing time. The tupa was clean and contained all we needed for our stay. The check in and check out process was a breeze. Most importantly, it was the perfect peace and quiet we were looking for in a picturesque location! On one day we had the whole lake to ourselves!

Incredible people running this wonderful get away vacation setting. We know it is set for a busy winter season but coming here in the summer is amazing. We canoed across the lake, went hiking, and enjoyed a campfire right outside our door. We will be back! Thank you for the great stay!!!

We've been to Lapland Lake several times during the past ten years, and this rating really does reflect the overall positive experience of this lovely place and not just our trip this past May, which was also positive. To be clear - you have to want this type of serenity - no TV, wireless or cell reception in cabins. 24-hour...

We’re so glad you enjoyed your recent visit to Lapland Lake and that it gave you the serenity you needed. It is a beautiful place to wind down and completely relax. (Taking advantage of the authentic wood burning sauna really enhances the experience.) We’re sorry if you weren’t aware that our Wi-Fi is available 24 hrs. After the office closes...
