This is my fourth year tagging along with friends who have been skiing here for more than 20 years! I can't say enough about how much we love Afterglow. Pete and Gail and great - pleasant and responsive. The cabins are just right - not too fancy, not too rustic. We stay in Lakeshore Upper and Lower (16 of us!) and it is great. Beds are comfortable and kitchens have everything we need (we do a lot of cooking). Plenty of room to relax. The ski trails are perfectly groomed and there is a great variety of terrain throughout the quiet and beautiful woods. Also snowshoeing/fat tire bike trails. This year I rented a bike. Pete is a big fat tire guy - he gave me pointers and even went out with me once. Then there's tubing down a fast hill... and a fire with apple cider and snacks... and a hot tub... I could go on.

Cross Country skiing and snowshoeing here was terrific. Well marked, well groomed, accurately mapped, this place is perfect for kids, dogs friendly, groups friendly. Cabins available, a chalet with a lovely picture window over looking a fire pit and private non-motorized boats only lake. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

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 and taking in the magic of the moment in this very special place.

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 also a nice lodge. Sometimes we get adventurous, so Pete the owner, takes us plus tubes to the top of a great hill where we go whooshing down laughing. There's also a well maintained skating rink and a hot tub and sauna for private use by sign up. All this is included in the price of the rental. The owners are GREAT. The wilderness surrounding the private lake is gorgeous, especially decked with snow all winter. The winter rates are very reasonable. Give it a try and you will come back again and again.
