Overview

Grand Marais Cabin Rental Photos and Description

....an incredible destination that will please everyone!

HeartRock Haven is a spectacular piece of heaven located just 28 miles North of Grand Marais, Minnesota.

Nestled on a small trout lake one mile off The Gunflint Trail this charming cabin is one of only 15 on this secluded body of water. With boat motors limited to 15 hp it offers the peace and quiet you need to experience to truly appreciate.

Whether you like to fish, hike, canoe, kayak, snowmobile, snow shoe or cross country ski there is something for everyone to enjoy in this year round Boundary Waters home!

This beautiful knotty pine cabin features leather, hickory and custom pine furniture. In addition to a queen size master bedroom Heartrock boasts a second full size private bedroom plus a queen & twin bed suite. Perfect for three couples or any combination of family. All have goose-down comforters and high quality comfortable bedding.

Enjoy burgers on the gas grill or prepare a gourmet meal in a modern kitchen with all of the amenities. Watch a good movie on the DVD player, challenge your kids to PlayStation2 or enjoy a host of classic board games. For a little more action check out the lower level game room complete with pinball machines and an electronic dart board. The perfect retreat for the kids of all ages.

On a warm summer evening or frosty winter night, the cozy porch with wood-burning fireplace is always a great place to relax with a cup of coffee or a nice glass of wine. Enjoy a book or a good conversation.

Things to Do

During the warmer months there is three person canoe and as four kayaks for use at your leisure. Enjoy trout fishing right off the dock or discover the serenity of the lake. There are also breath-taking hiking trails with picturesque overlooks just a few minutes away. Explore Caribou Rock or Honeymoon Bluff.

For food and drinks check out the historic Hungry Jack Lodge and the legendary Trail Center both just minutes away. Horseback riding and other activities can also be found farther down the trail at the famous Gunflint Lodge.

Located near numerous entry points to world famous BWCA Heartrock Haven makes a great “basecamp” for the less adventurous. Stay in luxury while another group roughs it in the woods during a canoe trip or the hits the lakes for fishing opener.

In the winter world-class snowmobile trails are just outside the door. Cross country skiers will enjoy the nationally-recognized trails at the popular Bearskin Lodge. These well groomed trails have been written up in ski magazines and are located just 6 miles down the road

For some wholesome family fun make reservations for a horse-drawn sleigh ride through a lantern lit trail at Okontoe. If you’d rather “hoof-it”, we have four pair of snow-shoes available any time.

Grand Marais

You’ll pass through Grand Marais on your way to Heartrock Haven, so make sure to explore this quaint little town. This picturesque village on Lake Superior makes a great day trip. Sign up for a craft class at the North House Folk School. Or wander through the variety of stores from art galleries and antique shops to the classic Ben Franklin. Enjoy food and entertainment at The Gunflint Tavern. Enjoy the catch of the day at theAngry Trout or kick back with a Sven and Ole’s Pizza.

We hope you will find Heartrock Haven as “truly magical” as some of our past visitors.

About Karla Cahlander

I have been coming to the boundary waters for over 17 years and have enjoyed each and every visit. It is truly something my family and I look forward to every single time. You never tire from the incredible beauty and serenity of this peaceful place. There is plenty to do and plenty of time to NOT do.

Karla Cahlander purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Karla Cahlander chose Grand Marais

Simply put, this cabin and it's surroundings are the perfect way to experience the Boundary Waters in comfort and style. It is a real home away from home and provides everything you could possibly need. Being just one mile off the Gunflint Trail, the location is also very convenient.

What makes this cabin unique

HeartRock Haven provides comfort, warmth and ambience the minute you walk in. You immediately feel like you're in a true cabin setting; not just a lake home. It is the feel of the woods without being completely isolated.

Honeymoon Relaxation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This place was beautiful, quite, peaceful, with scenic beauty everywhere! This was our honeymoon destination, and it couldn't have been any better as we needed time to decompress after all the wedding planning!
There are several hiking trails, going into Grand Marais is a must, and heading out onto the lake is a must! Fishing was good, catching blue gills, sm. mouth bass, and rainbow trout right out from the dock.
The cabin was decorated cozy, had all the items you could need for a great week, or long weekend.
We would highly recommend Heartrock Haven to all ages!

Gunflint Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at this wonderful cabin. The weather was perfect, and we loved the large dock — along with the kayaks and canoe. The screen porch was perfect for reading, playing games, and sitting by the fire. One evening we were treated to a spectacular thunderstorm while we were gathered around the fireplace on the porch. Just one of so many great memories!

A friend filled escape

  • 5 of 5
I rented this beautiful North woods home for a weekend away with my fiancee and a few of our friends. The cabin is tastefully decorated in a rustic style that makes it easy to relax and forget about your cell phone and email. We spent one of our days using the excellent cross country ski trails on East Bear Skin which was no more than a 10 minute drive from the cabin. At the end of the day we used the full kitchen to cook up substantial meals and had a few drinks around the big table before heading over to the near by Hungry Jack Lodge. This property has it all, proximity to ski trails, local watering holes, and it's easy to stay in and relax! We can't wait to come north again and hopefully use this little gem of a cabin.

Great Place To Get Away And Relax

  • 5 of 5
My wife ,son and I stayed here over the summer for a well deserved break. The cabin is even better in person than the pictures on here. We could tell the owners have spent a lot of time and thought into the place by how nice it is decorated inside. It was also way more spacious inside than we even expected it to be. The lake the cabin is on is smaller in size, but the nice part about it is there are only a couple other cabins on it so you feel like you have the lake to yourself. For what you get in price for the place, it is well worth it in comparison to renting a cabin at any of the local resorts. Someday we will be back and would highly recommend the cabin to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing vacation in the "true"up north!!

Heartrock Haven, cabin on Leo Lake off Gunflint Trail

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cabin. In terms of water activities, we love to canoe. ... and we wanted a quiet lake that was not filled with motor boats. Leo Lake proved to be a wonderful haven of peace and solitude. We literally had no noise on the lake until the 4th of July, and that was minimal .. only a few fisherman. If you love the call of loons, then you will be on loon heaven on this lake. And, if you want a longer canoe trip (versus Leo Lake), Hungry Jack Outfitters is just down the road .. where you can rent a Kevlar canoe and make a day trip into the BWCA.

Karla, the owner, has a very nicely appointed kitchen with high end dishes, knives, and cookware. It was a pleasure to use the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable ... and the instructions about how to feed "Shermie the squirrel" were much appreciated (including his antics).

The wild life in that area was spectacular --- we saw moose, baby foxes, nesting loons on Leo Lake, beavers, blue herons, turtles, lots of trout jumping, and flying squirrels. The cabin is also very close to Trail Center and Hungry Jack Lodge. We enjoyed meals and malts at both of those places. Trail Center has the best malts every!! And, of course, we listened to WTIP, the local radio station.

We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace on the screened porch, where we could sit by the fire in the evening, and not be tortured by mosquitoes. A BIG PLUS!!!

We will return again next year ... our experience was magical. But, those of you who love the BWCA, and the call of the loons at night, know that about the Gunflint Trail.

A very happy vacationer ....

Wonderful, fun, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
After spending the morning shopping and eating in Grand Marais - we headed to the cabin. Gunflint Trail and all its curves and thousands of trees is awesome. The cabin is tucked back about a mile from the trail and is absolutely amazing! All 3 families in our group found Heart Rock Haven to be beautiful, comfortable and in a wonderful location. The cabin itself is very charming and has everything you need to relax. You can tell the owner really cares about the cabin and its guests.
We spent a lot of time on the dock - from swimming, to trout fishing, to sunset kayak trips - it was truly amazing. We practically had the lake to ourselves - and some pretty vocal loons! A few of us enjoyed a massage at a nearby resort and ate breakfast at Trail Center one morning. The kids couldn't believe the size of the giant pancakes! A hike on Caribou Rock trail was a fantastic start to one of the days of our trip. The one afternoon it rained - we had a blast in the cabin. The kids did crafts, played darts and watched movies while the adults gathered around the dinning table for cards.
Overall - we all had a wonderful time - it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. We made tons of memories and were able to relax and simply enjoy the beauty around us. This will likely become an annual get-away for our group and we'd all highly recommend Heart Rock Haven.
