A friend and I stayed for two nights in one of the tupas in early March, as we have previously. I absolutely love this place. The trails are very well groomed, possibly the best I've seen, with a variety of difficulty levels. Certainly, that last weekend had the best skiing conditions I've encountered.

The staff members are all very friendly. The tupa we stayed in was cozy and clean, with a fully equipped kitchen and a wood-burning stove (wood delivered daily). There also is back-up heat if you let the fire go out! All very comfortable and relaxing.

Eat in the grill at least once. If they have their mushroom soup, go for it. It is fantastic. The big half a grilled cheese sandwich I had with it was great, too.

I'm already planning the next visit!

A friend and I spent 3 nights at Lapland Lake. The skiing and snowshoeing were excellent. Our tupa was comfortable. Lunch at Tuulan Grille was tasty. We used the Finnish sauna, which is a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. We have been there several years and plan on returning next year, too!

Our family of 4 has found solace annually at Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center for the past 8 years. Owners Ann and Olavi provide all the essentials, including books, board games, and night lights so that we can pack simply and lightly! The authentic Finnish sauna and cross country skiing trails are second to none! Our tupa has always been immaculate and maintained beautifully over the years. This remains our most favorite place to unwind, unplug, and enjoy our natural surroundings. Looking forward to next year!!

Our stay at Lapland Lake was for 3 days and 2 nights and was exactly what we were looking for at this time of year, peace and quiet with a fire burning and it cold outside. The staff and owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating. I can't wait for my next getaway to Lapland Lake!
