We wanted to go to a place where we can experience fall colors and this place, Adirondacks, turned out to be excellent. And the place we stayed in was just perfect.
In Lapland Lake Vacation Centre, there are some options to choose from depending on the size requirements. We stayed in Lumi Tupa, which was about 800 sft with three bedrooms. No matter which option you choose you can be rest assured of one thing, the rooms are pretty neat and clean. They are extra ordinarily detailed, nice colonial felling. The kitchen has necessary stuff to manage a decent cooking and the bathroom was impeccably neat. The hotel provides sufficient wood to light up the fireplace, and also provides barbecue accessories. Perfect for the people who wants to enjoy a bit grill and want to have a quiet drink.
The lapland lake is walkable distance to the rooms, and the walk trails are adequately marked so that the people don't go missing in the woods. The hotel provides it's guest with different of boating options at no extra cost. It was a very enjoyable experience, provided you know how to boat. You got to be very cautious about while boating as there are no life guards on duty and more importantly, there are no cell phone signals, so in case of any accident you are virtually on your own. So be cautious.
Overall, its a nice hotel, highly recommend !! :) Enjoy your stay..
