The love that you feel from the owners and their delightful family is apparent from the moment you drive onto this lovely property. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the snow shoes, fat tire bicycles, sleds, fire pits and the overall atmosphere of the Afterglow Lake Resort. It is easy to fall in love with the North Woods while breathing the air... More

Four women in their 60's have been coming here for about ten years and we LOVE it. We rent a three bedroom cottage right on the lake, cook our own delicious meals, ski out the door on perfectly groomed beautiful cross country ski trails (for striding or skating) and come back to make a blazing fire in the fireplace. There's... More

My family and I have been going to Afterglow for 25 years and we love it! Pete and Gail are the owners and they do a great job putting on activities for all ages. The quiet lake atmosphere is great for all to enjoy. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and walks around the lake on their private trail are... More

There's lots to do -- xc skiing on beautifully groomed trails winding through hushed winter woods, snowshoe trails, ice skating and broomball, tubing down the nearby hill, hot tub, a big rec room for the...

We didn't stay at Afterglow, but we did go cross country skiing here, and we really had a lot of fun! When we arrived, we were given a map, and away we went. There was a nice variety of terrain, from an easy beginner trail to some really nice and fun expert loops. Trails ranged from fractions of a mile... More

We had another great visit to Afterglow Resort in Phelps, WI. There is so much to do and you don't even need to leave the grounds. We enjoyed a day of tubing, ice-skating, broomball AND snow-shoeing! The resort offers snow shoes for all size feet and the kids even had a blast! The cross-county trails are top notch and groomed... More
