Explore our lodging and privacy policies.

General Lodging Policies
  • Minimum Stay:  Our lodging has a minimum stay requirement of either two or three nights, depending on the season and date.
  • Pets are not permitted, excluding working service animals.  Bringing a pet inside your tupa in violation of this policy will result in a $250 cleaning fee.
  • Lapland Lake is a non-smoking facility; smoking is prohibited inside all buildings (this includes vapor, electronic and any other smoking devices). We thank you for your cooperation.  Smoking inside your tupa will result in a $250 cleaning fee.
  • Day visitors:  With the exception of special events, we are not able to accommodate off site visitors in the spring, summer, and fall.  The use of Lapland Lake facilities and beach are reserved for registered lodging guests only.  In winter, any offsite visitors are required to purchase facility use passes.
  • Check in time:  If your tupa was not rented the night prior, in most instances you will be able to settle in as early as 11am.  When tupas are changing over from guest to guest, we endeavor to have cleaning completed by 4:00pm.  However, during exceedingly active lodging periods, tupas may be prepared somewhat later.
  • Check-out time is 11:00am, but guests are welcome to enjoy our public facilities until 4:30pm on day of departure. A public shower with changing room is available.  Depending on our rental and staffing schedules, a 4:00pm late checkout option may be available for a fee of $50/adult and $10/child ages 6-17 (but not to exceed one half of the base rate for that night).  Please confirm availability with a member of our reservations staff.
  • 8% sales tax applies. No other hotel taxes or resort fees are imposed, and Lapland Lake is a non-tipping resort.
  • Tupas are fully equipped, including linens: sheets, pillowcases, bath towels and blankets. Tupas are cleaned thoroughly after each use (there is no daily maid service).
  • Complimentary WiFi is available. Guests at Lapland Lake delight in quality time spent with one another.  There is no cell phone service in our area, and our tupas do not have televisions or telephones.  Complimentary Wi-Fi is available at the main lodge.  Wi-Fi coverage is also available in or near each cabin or studio.  Most guests are able to configure their cell phones for “WiFi Calling”, if you intend to use this feature we recommend activating and testing it before arriving at our location  Our wax room is open 24×7 with access to our WiFi network and a landline telephone with complimentary domestic long distance service.  Lodging guests may also provide our main telephone number 518-863-4974 to friends and family as a contact number for the time of their visit; incoming messages are cheerfully delivered to your tupa from 10am-5pm (and after hours in event of emergency).
  • Extra Guest Charges:  Each lodging unit is priced for a base number of guests per night. This base number varies depending on the unit, the night, and the season. Extra guest charges will apply when the number of guests in a reservation goes beyond this base number. Extra guest rates vary by season for adults and children age 6 to 17. Children ages 5 and under do not incur extra guest charges.
  • Maximum guests per unit: Each lodging unit has a maximum number of allowable guests.  If your party exceeds this number of guests, your reservation may be moved to another unit at the prevailing rate, you may be required to add another unit as available, or your reservation may be cancelled without refund.
  • Single occupancy discount for solo travelers available during spring and fall seasons and winter midweek nights, excluding holidays and holiday weeks. This discount is applied to your final bill at checkout.  No other discounts apply. Studio units and four bedroom tupas are not eligible for discount.
  • COVID-19 Liability Policy: Stoney Creek Nordic, Inc., DBA Lapland Lake is absolved of all liability for anyone infected with coronavirus during their stay. By staying at Lapland Lake, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Lodging Deposit Policies

Please read this policy carefully.  Your payment of a deposit serves as acceptance of Lapland Lake’s deposit and cancellation policy as detailed below.

DEPOSITS: To confirm a lodging reservation a 50% (pretax) deposit is required at the time of booking. The balance is payable at the time of check-out.

CANCELLATIONS: Cancellations made 4 or more weeks before the arrival date, or 6 or more weeks before the arrival date for four bedroom tupas and for group reservations of three or more tupas, are subject to a $50 (lodging dates before 12/1/2024) or $75 (lodging dates after 12/1/2024) per tupa cancellation charge and the remainder of your deposit will be refunded.   For cancellations with less than the applicable 4 or 6 week notice deposits are forfeited. 

We are a small resort and as such cancellations on short notice affect us significantly.   We are not able to make exceptions to our cancellation policy for unfavorable weather in any season.  While we do our best to provide good skiing conditions in the winter, the weather is beyond our control and we are not able to refund deposits or reschedule stays due to unfavorable weather or snow conditions.

We are not able to make exceptions to our cancellation policy due to personal or family emergencies.  We recommend you purchase trip insurance from a commercial provider if you are not comfortable assuming the risk of losing your deposit if a personal or family emergency arises on short notice.

For any reason, should you arrive after the date specified as your arrival date or depart prior to the final date of your reservation, you will be responsible for payment of your entire stay as originally booked. 

PAYMENT: Payment may be made by cash, MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Discover, personal or traveler’s check made payable to Lapland Lake. There will be a $30 charge on any returned check.
