Had a blast at Heart Lake

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with 2 families this past August, plenty of space and room to spare for 4 adults and 4 children. Super close to Gaylord to grab groceries or a quick pizza. The lake itself was fairly quiet at night, the water was very clean and clear. Sadly the fishing is not very good. Anyway, we loved jumping off the dock for a swim and the use of the boat was a great addition to our vacation. The beach was a bit small this year due to the long cold winter and raised lake level. It was a bit cramped at bonfire time but we made it work. It was actually perfect for the kids to play on during the day, very sandy and not mucky. Large property and great deck on the back to relax after hours. We used the lakeside table for dinner twice and loved it! The front yard is huge, we played some bocce and soccer out there with the kids. The interior of the cabin is spacious, lots of room for us all. We didn't even use the basement as we were mostly outside. Plenty of beds, I wish the main floor bedroom had a queen instead of a double bed but it was fine for us. My only complaint would be that the kitchen is very small. No way around it really, we made it work, but it's tight in there with even 2 people. The kitchen is fairly well stocked, the grill was very good. It's not mentioned but there is a really nice park just up the road 5-10 mins walk for the kids to play. Swings and equipment. I thought I would add that as it's a huge bonus to those with young families. Richard is a very professional and organized owner and cares for his property. I would not hesitate to rent it again.
