My family has stayed here every other year for five years, ever since we discovered this Adirondack gem. The hosts are lovely, accommodating people (and offer a campfire and s'mores on select nights by the lake), and it's a perfect spot to read, swim, kayak, nap, hike, take day trips, and otherwise relax. Can't recommend highly enough.

Beautiful area, clean, nicely decorated cabins, great beach....what more can I say.? The sauna is energizing and relaxing at the same time.Every cabin has a fire pit and there are organized marshmallow roasts on the beach.We'll be back !

The weather report told us that we were looking at 4 days of rain out of 5. We didn't care; we just wanted to be at Lapland Lake because we love it there. At times, our visits there seem magical and mystical, and other times it just seems like we're at home. Everything was on-point, the entire staff is suuuuuuper helpful and friendly. The local wildlife was on cue; frequent turkey, deer and small woodland creature sightings were the norm. There is an obvious harmony here at LL, everything fits into the grand scheme of things seamlessly. Every cabin, every view - even the parking lot and lodge - all of it, there's a near perfect visual, emotional and spiritual balance that has to be experienced to be understood.
The best part of being here is just being here.

We have come here four times and love returning. It's the perfect solution for someone who wants to be outdoors, without the hassle of camping. Cabins are well appointed, cozy, modern, and very clean. There are a variety to choose from so you can figure out what best suits your budget and group size.

The owners are beyond friendly, happy to help, offer local suggestions or help you make the most of your time on the property. We typically stay 2 nights and dont leave the property once! We enjoy the sauna, fire pits, and fishing/boating on the lake.

We LOVE Lapland Lake. We visit the resort several times a year to unplug and renew. We find it to be the perfect distance for a day's drive from NYC, and its location in the Southern ADK is great for us. The area is beautiful, and the lovely drive up 30 is both memorable and an easy way to visit other towns and areas in the park. Lapland has everything we need (sweet cabins, private lake, sauna, trails / forest, and a warm and friendly staff, etc.) We've found our second home; there's no need to go further.
