Thora B. Town of Northhampton NY

“Best end of season ever! Thanks to Paul, Kathy, and staff.”

TH, Northville NY

“Lapland Lake takes you back to the early 1960’s with its family run resort. The key is friendly, caring and personal customer service. It’s nice to see the owners are there every day willing to give everyone their time.”


“I just wanted to take a moment to send praises for your instructors of the “Ladies Love to Ski” program. Initially, I was concerned about the “weather forecast” being too cold and windy, but a call to Ann gave me the push I needed to brave the cold. Needless to say – the weather WAS…

ML, Sharon Springs, NY

“Lapland Lake is warm, cordial and well prepared every day. The owners, have developed & maintained the finest Adirondack cross country ski resort in the Northeast.”

Upstate, NY

“Lapland Lake is a gem. We love the place, finding it clean, quiet, peaceful, and so comfortable and friendly. It grounds have plenty of space around and it is within close reach in various season to what we love about the Adirondacks: trails to hike, roads to bike, a GREAT network of groomed nordic ski…

KL, Stamford, CT

“We love Lapland’s family friendly atmosphere and staying in the “tupas.” Our grandchildren enjoy the easy trails, the sledding hill and visiting the reindeer.”

KT, Metuchen, NJ

“Lapland is my favorite because of the brilliant layout of the trails, excellent grooming, pristine woods, cozy lodge and warmth and hospitality of a family-run ski center.”

SS, Annandale, NJ

“Some of the trails are such a joy to ski that they have become a family tradition and we cannot leave until we have skied them at least once. The grooming is impeccable – BEST in the east. Olavi is an artist with the snowcat.”

PCL, Sharon Springs, NY

“Lapland is wonderful. No matter how many times we go there we are never disappointed. Skiing under the lights on a snowy night is one of life’s great joys. I’ve never been anywhere better.”

MH, Berkeley Heights, NJ

“Lapland Lake is a class act. The snow & trails are cared for better than anywhere else.”

JBJ, Ottawa, ON

“Lapland XC Center is the best I have ever been to (since 1978). It is unsurpassed in every way and I wish I did not live so far away from it so I could ski every weekend.”

Larry K.

“We spent two days this week skiing – you have created a very special place. My three kids, my wife and I loved it. Even after skiing all day I had tears when we had to leave at 4pm. We will be back. Thanks!”

Nancy & Wes

“We and our family had a perfectly wonderful time at Lapland Lake, and the more we recall, the more wonderful it was! We thank you for creating and providing such a perfect Adirondack vacation location. The accommodations are adorable and your lists and descriptions so complete that one has all one needs to enjoy.

“My family has been visiting Lapland Lake in August for 19 years. We love the care that is taken throughout the property, the swimming, hiking and relaxing. It is a place of beauty and has become a family tradition.”

RM, New Albany, OH

“I’m a 54-year old first time skier and I picked Lapland off the Internet. I had a perfect experience with everything. I had such a great time that I purchased skis and am returning this season with my wife and friend even though it is a 600-mile drive for me.”

JC, Mamaroneck, NY

“The location in the “lake effect” makes for more and better snow than any other resort in the state.”

JU, Queensbury, NY

“It is perfect every day of the season. No need to wait to get to skiing heaven – XC skiing for real XC lovers in the Northeast is here now!”

LH, Northville, NY

“When we have out-of-state guests, we always treat them to a day at Lapland Lake Ski Resort. They have well marked trails for beginners as well as experts, the rental equipment is of a good quality, and everything is reasonably priced and affordable for families.”

PCL, Sharon Springs, NY

“The lodge is perfect, the little Finnish restaurant is a gem.”

Rochester, NY

“We’ve been visiting Lapland Lake for 10 years…..in summer, autumn and winter…..and we keep returning. Ann and Olavi are warm and gracious hosts. They offer patient assistance as they help us identify nearby trails or places to explore. I can’t imagine anyone who knows more about x-country skiing than Olavi. And there’s nothing better than…

K. Family Reunion

“You will not be forgotten – our visit to Northville, NY was wonderful; the scenery was grand; the serenity was (well…) serene and you made it possible in every way.”
