Summer at Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation
Center is what everyone dreams that a summer should be! The
perfect, temperate Adirondack summer climate means playing and
relaxing comfortably in the great outdoors. Rediscover nature
within the thousands of acres of state protected woodlands and
marvel at the rare beauty of a lake still untouched!
complimentary canoes, kayaks, row boats, and paddle boats let
you enjoy the tranquility of Woods Lake. This 70-acre lake
prohibits motorboats, so prepare to hear only sounds of the
natural surroundings and yourselves. Bring your fishing gear and
fish from the boat for small mouth bass, rainbow trout, perch, pickerel
and bullhead with brook trout in our streams! Or paddle
out to the middle of the lake and watch the loons, read, or bask
in the sun as you float undisturbed.
Bring your hiking boots and bikes!
Hiking or biking
throughout our 30+ miles of wooded trails and along our 3-mile nature
trail, you will experience nature untouched by development
– a particular beauty and serenity only the
Adirondacks can deliver! Hiking opportunities also include
the Northville-Placid Trail, a 132-mile hiking trail connecting
the southern Adirondack foothills and the scenic Adirondack High
Peaks region, with the trailhead (Benson Trailhead) just a mile
from Lapland Lake near
Enjoy a day at the beach! We have
complimentary sand toys for the kids to build their sandcastles
and a swing set, where they can get all sweaty again before
jumping back in! The beach has a softly sloping bottom and the
absence of motorboats and jet skis means serene swimming.
Because our beach may
only be used by those lodging with us and by our homeowners, you will love the
ease and privacy of our beach. Nothing feels better after a long
day of hiking or biking than cooling off in the pristine water
of Woods Lake! Other waterfront and outdoor amenities include:
lawn games, hammocks, Adirondack chairs, picnic tables, a diving
dock, a Finnish wood-burning sauna, the Hirvonens’ domesticated
reindeer, and a beaver family that moves back in every time we
clear them off of the lake’s outlet!
If you want to bring your motorboat or
jet skis, Sacandaga Lake is just minutes away. Be sure to check

An Adirondack summer night is something
to experience! When the sun has gone down, the pleasant night
temperatures mix with a gentle breeze that shakes the leaves of
the hardwoods and the needles of the pines. And for some reason,
an Adirondack summer night and a campfire just go together.
Experience our organized campfire nights! From July 4th through
Labor Day weekend, lakeside campfires are held three times per
week, with one of the nights being a storytelling night where
guests are encouraged to tell stories and entertain the other
guests. Ann and Olavi provide the s’mores and bubbles! Don’t
feel like a fire? Take a row boat out under a blanket of stars
on Woods Lake for an experience you will never forget!
When the long, eventful day is over,
retire to your private tupa (Adirondack cottage), enjoy a bottle
of wine on the screen porch or play a board game before “hitting
the hay” and enjoying the most peaceful night of rest you’ve
ever had to the music of crickets, toads, and the occasional
owl. Whether you are visiting alone, or as a couple, family, or
group, we have lodging accommodations for you!
