Around here, there’s never a dull moment, though we do offer quiet ones.
No matter how you like to relax and have fun, this is the place for your getaway. Experience nature and all the fun our region has to offer, while enjoying the comfort of a modern lodge.
Outdoor Recreation Perfection
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest region is truly one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. There’s no better spot in the world for:
Events & Attractions
North Twin Lake
We have to start our list with the “Lake” in “Lakeview.” This pristine and picturesque North Woods lake is not only beautiful, it’s full of hungry fish! The lodge is on a hill above the lake, so you’ll always have a great view of this natural wonder from your room or from our outdoor relaxation area.
Fourth of July Festival
Is there anything more American than celebrating Independence Day in a small town? Phelps puts on a big show every year, with a parade, field day events for the kids, spectacular fireworks, and more!
There are nine nearby golf courses, giving you a chance to play great courses in gorgeous scenery.
Lakes and Streams
Our county alone has 1,300 pristine lakes and 73 rivers, streams, and creeks, with even more in other parts of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Fish, paddle, swim, or tube to your heart’s content!
Maple Syrup Fest
This festival, held at the beginning of April each year, is a sweet way to kick cabin fever to the curb. It features hands-on tree tapping demonstrations, tours of several local sugar bushes, maple-based foods, contests, and a craft fair with over 70 vendors.
Midwest Musky Classic
We have great fishing all year round, and if you’ve looked around our site, you’ve seen some of the huge muskies our guests pull out of North Twin Lake on a regular basis. Every October our region holds the Midwest Musky Classic, a four lake tournament (North Twin, South Twin, Lac Vieux Desert, and Big Sand Lake) that has the winners pulling out fish in the neighborhood of four feet in length. Think you can bring in the biggest one?
Snowmobiling World Championships
Each January, nearby Eagle River hosts two world snowmobile racing championships: The Vintage World Championship Derby (featuring snowmobiles from the Sixties, Seventies, and Eighties) and the World Championships Snowmobile Derby, featuring modern machines.
A National Forest, State and National Recreational Areas
Our entire region is part of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, with numerous state and national recreational areas, more lakes and streams, endless miles of trails, and thousands of acres of wildlands. You’ll always have new places to explore and enjoy.
Our county’s trail system is a real gem. There are 60 multi-use trails accessing 240,000 acres of public lands, and 700 miles of snowmobile trails that not only track through beautiful wilderness, but connect all our communities. Whether you like to hike, bike, jog, ride an ATV, snowmobile, or ski cross-country, you’ll never run out of things to see.
Our unique triathlon takes place each August and includes an 8K paddle around North Twin Lake, a 5K run, and 16K bike leg. It’s challenging, but also friendly to families and beginners, because any participant can choose to do just one leg.
Though we’ve highlighted a few things here, we literally can’t show you all the great events, shops, attractions, museums, and dining that Phelps and the other towns and villages in our region have to offer. When you stay with us, let us know what you’re into, and we’ll be glad to make recommendations.
One of the benefits of being Up North is what one of our guests called "deafening silence." When you want to relax, take a seat, gaze up at stars that seem so close you can touch them, and enjoy a peace you won't find anywhere else, because you really have "gotten away from it all."
