Crystalline lakes and spectacular sunsets provide an ideal setting for solitude, relaxation and recreation any time of the year. The lands of the Adirondack Forest Preserve surround
Lapland Lake with its hundreds of carefully managed private acres. In this secluded mountain setting, cozy, comfortable surroundings and warm hospitality are reminiscent of Finland.
Founded more than 35 years ago by U.S. Olympian Olavi Hirvonen
and currently owned and operated by Paul and Kathy Zahray, this complete four-season
Lapland Lake resort is the ultimate relaxation destination. In spring, summer and fall, Lapland Lake's facilities are available exclusively to overnight guests, preserving the serene atmosphere our customers savor.
lodging is offered in ten immaculate and private tupas, housekeeping cottages, each with a fully-equipped kitchen containing a full size refrigerator-freezer, stove-oven-broiler, microwave, electric coffeemaker, toaster and all utensils, pots, pans and dishware. Each tupa has its own barbecue grill
and fire pit and contains a living room, two, three or four bedrooms perfect for singles, couples or families, screened porch, bath with shower, electric heat, and cozy woodstove with complimentary wood and linens supplied.
Secluded, pristine Woods Lake is a pleasant walk or bike ride from the tupas along a gentle gravel pathway that winds through the resort's woodlands. Children delight in the
private, sandy beach, and parents take comfort in knowing there is a softly sloping lake bottom -
a swimmer's paradise! This virtually untouched 70-acre wilderness lake provides the perfect setting for lounging and soaking up the sun's warmth. The absence of motorboats and jet skis ensures a completely tranquil environment - perfect for whiling away the hours with a good book or napping in our lakeside hammock.
Hiking opportunities abound on our private 30+-mile trail system, 3-mile nature trail and adjacent protected state forestland. Sightings of white-tail deer, the majestic blue heron and hearing the haunting calls of our loons create unforgettable memories.
The Benson Trailhead of the famed 133-mile marked and
mapped Adirondack-Lake Placid Trail is just off
our property and offers an amazing wilderness experience
kayak or row lazily, and perhaps fish for small mouth bass,
rainbow trout, bullhead, perch, pickerel, and brook trout. Visit with the Hirvonens'
domesticated reindeer! Enjoy a scenic bike ride, play a lawn game, indulge yourself with a visit to our Finnish woodburning sauna or with massage therapy. Relax around a midsummer
evening campfire with storytelling. Take this opportunity to delight in quality time with one another.
For those wishing to partake of motorized
watercraft activities, there are several marinas on the nearby
Great Sacandaga Lake that rent motorboats and pontoon boats. For those with their own power boats, the public boat
launch on the Sacandaga Lake is a mere 9-mile drive. Fishing
guides may be hired here - the Sacandaga Lake holds the world
record for pike!
