Sēn Lín Hú is located at the Maplelag resort, which is near Callaway in northwest Minnesota. The gently rolling terrain is lightly to moderately wooded interspersed with family farms and country businesses. Callaway is 11 miles north of the tourist-friendly town of Detroit Lakes, where vacationers take advantage of restaurants, hotels, resorts and a one-mile long sandy beach.
Maplelag is a destination cross-country ski resort and conference center located on Little Sugarbush Lake. Maplelag began hosting Concordia Language Villages in 1976. Russian, Swedish, Chinese, Finnish, French and Spanish Villages have all been hosted throughout the years. For 11 weeks each summer, Maplelag is shut down as a cross country ski resort and conference center and the entire facility transforms into a Concordia Language Village. Owners Mary and Jim Richards are constantly building and upgrading the facilities to meet the needs of both the Villages and their resort.
