Several of the existing homes at Lapland Lake are pictured
here (but none are for sale - their owners love it
here)! In fact, no improved building lot has ever been
resold. Clearly, our neighbors enjoy their Lapland
Lake homes and feel they have made wise investments.
One family even recently purchased a second building lot!
But we felt the photos would help you to imagine yourself in your own private, cozy four-season cottage or custom dream
All lots have been approved by the Adirondack Park Agency
for single-family dwellings and have been approved for
private septic systems and individual wells. Electricity is
available from the adjacent roadway. Property owners have
deeded rights to the Association Lot and beach front at
Woods Lake for swimming and relaxing.
The Lapland Lake Homeowners' Association owns a second
lakefront lot with a dock where members may store their
rowboats, canoes and/or kayaks. Free use of the cross
country ski trail system is included for the original
purchasers of each parcel. If a parcel is re-sold,
successive owners would be required to pay for a Season Pass
membership at the prevailing rates.
Homes are built of log or other natural wood siding and
painted or stained in earth-tone colors. To protect
everyone's privacy, they are set-back from property borders
and only clear-cutting as necessary for dwelling
construction is permitted. Rental of homes is not permitted as we have developed and wish
to maintain a close-knit permanent community here.

The Lapland Lake Homeowners' Association is incorporated and
abides by a set of bylaws; members pay annual dues. We will be pleased to forward a copy of the bylaws for your review.
The homes shown here have all been built by
couples or families who purchased lots from us (excluding Ann
and Olavi's home as we already owned the land). Some of the
homes are more than 20 years old.
We are so very pleased with this wonderful community of neighbors and look forward to a limited expansion of this special group. If you are interested in
becoming one of the fortunate few who own property here, please contact us, and we will be
happy to answer any questions you may have.
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you further and, if
your time permits, to give you a detailed tour.
About the Area
Lapland Lake is located in the southern tier
of the Adirondack Park, the largest park in the continental
United States - ideally
situated for those seeking a vacation or retirement home. The
lands within the park are carefully regulated by the Adirondack Park Agency to preserve the Park's history, beauty
and abundant natural resources.
As a homeowner you will have an amazing array of
four-season recreational activities right out your front door.
Imagine skiing this winter on Lapland Lake's meticulously
cross country ski trails! The 38km
trail system is groomed daily using a fleet of state-of-the-art
grooming equipment including a powerful 2010 Prinoth Husky snowcat. 12km
of trails are marked and mapped for the exclusive use of
snowshoers. Night skiing, tubing, ice-skating, kick-sledding and
wilderness ski touring round out the slate of winter options.
Enjoy lunch service at our
Tuulen Tupa Grill. Saturdays feature
wonderful dinner service and occasional live entertainment. The
season typically spans the end of November or early part of
December through March and often into April.
As spring arrives so does the opportunity for fishing at Woods Lake and
at on-site streams. Smallmouth bass, perch, pickerel,
bullhead and lake trout populate Woods Lake with brook trout in
the streams. Grant Lake, a stocked wilderness lake, is a lovely
walk over state-owned land and offers additional fishing
opportunities. Lapland Lake is only 9 miles from the Great Sacandaga Lake. This body of water holds the world record for
Summer in the Adirondacks! Swim, fish,
canoe and kayak on Woods Lake, a virtually untouched motor-free, 70-acre
spring fed wilderness lake. The waters are crystal clear
and our sandy beach is the perfect place to soak up the sun's
warmth. Hike, mountain bike, enjoy the antics of the
resident loon and beaver families, watch as kingfisher and the
majestic blue heron swoop over the water - take it all in!
star-filled nights will take your breath away! Imagine relaxing
on your porch - the only noise the chirping of peepers or
the hoot of an owl. Heaven.
The Autumn season is amazing; fall
colors are spectacular. September begins with summer
weather, and by mid-month colors have begun to change. You
can still enjoy swimming in Woods Lake until mid to late
September. Throughout Autumn hiking, mountain biking, canoeing
and kayaking remain wonderful activities. The nights grow crisp
- stoke up your woodstove and settle in for a cozy evening in
front of a roaring fire with a good book and an even better glass of wine.
All seasons offer an unparalleled degree of
peace and privacy. A restrictive covenant protects the entire
property including the lake from motorized ATV's,
snowmobiles, motorboats, jet skis and the like (excluding
machines required for grooming trails). You can truly hear the
sounds of nature without intrusive man-made noise.
And what an amazing location! Lapland
Lake is just over an hour from the Albany (1 hour and 15 minutes
from the Albany International Airport), an hour from Saratoga
Springs with its famous racetrack, extraordinary restaurants,
shopping, spas and extensive cultural offerings. The Adirondack
Museum is also just over an hour's drive in Blue Mountain Lake,
and the High Peaks Region just over two hours north. Only four
hours to the south is New York City; four hours to the north Montreal; four hours to
the east Boston.
Cooperstown is 1-1/2 hours and the Finger Lakes region is a
3-1/2 hour drive.
The Lapland Lake Homeowners Association is
comprised of a wonderful group of people who share a love of
nature and the outdoors. Currently 12 families have homes here
with two other
families planning to build at some point in the future (there is
no required time frame for construction after you have purchased
a building lot). Active folks, they come from a wide variety of
backgrounds and careers. Thus
far, Ann and Olavi are the only year round residents here. All others
are second homes...for now. But we expect and hope that a few of
our neighbors will take up year round residence before too long!
