A great way to enjoy the lake for fishing, wake boarding / tubing, and seeing all around the lake !!
The beach has 88-feet of sand frontage and great swimming, with a dock. The lake is one of the cleanest lakes in Michigan !! There are no weeds, there is plenty of sand and the water is about 4 feet deep at 50 feet from shore. The lake is deep (135' in center) and is an all sports lake with “quiet times” from 7:30 pm to 11:00 am in which there is no high speed boating – a real advantage for a quiet evening to cruise around the lake, for the fishermen and to enjoy the sunset in peace and quiet. Boating, fishing, jet skiing, sailing, white sand beach, clean water, sunsets – it is all there at your front door. From lake deck, you can enjoy cooking and eating your meals at the lakeside and be a part of the beach scene while being in the shade – or you can enjoy the sun on the beach or the dock. Heart Lake is the perfect location for families with kids, boat, jet skis, fishermen, golfers, skiers, snow boarders, snowmobiles, hunters, bicycles, canoes, kayaks, hikers, bird watchers and more.

Wonderful Winter Wonderland!
Great trails for snowmobiling !! Warm cozy log cabin!! 7th year here in winter and will return in 2019!
Homey, Upscale, Love the lake and the 5 boats !
Charming for our group of 14! The Miller's have thought of everything that made our vacation perfect. This is a great location for golf, quietness, and this lake was wonderful -- you don't often see an inland lake with a sand bottom, no weeds and clear water !
And whether you are inside or out, this home is perfect for a vacation -- you will not be disappointed.
Great Log Home Beautifully Decorated, Fabulous Lake, 5 Boats to use,
We have known the Millers for many years and what a great home for the summer vacation !! Swimming in one of the cleanest clear water lakes in Michigan with NO weeds and a sandy bottom, boating, kayaking, fishing, fires in the evening and great sunsets! (And did we mention Golf and Exploring Northern Michigan?) We had 12 of us and the beds were very comfortable, clean and fresh. And everything is up to date making the stay interesting in a 70 year old log cabin. Kitchen had everything we needed and the TWO grilling places stations really help spread out the cooking. And then to top our evenings off after sunset (at 9:15 PM), we headed to the basement for the entertainment on Hi Def TV with great sound.
The home is air conditioned and really helped when it warmed up in the high 80's, and there was plenty of hot water when we all took showers. And we understand the washer / dryer is a new addition for we renters -- nice surprise addition.
Although the lake is high and the beach disappeared, the kids had a great time in the shallow area playing the sand. And the owners added a gas fire pit up by the house -- nice addition at sunset !
Great stay in a beautiful home !! And we and the kids kept discovering the wonderful accessories and features of this log home -- a real treat and fun for a treasure hunt ! Thanks again to the owners for such a great place to stay and explore !
Had a blast at Heart Lake
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.
The perfect location is only one hour from each of upstate Michigan's attractions !! 12 miles from Otsego Club and downtown Gaylord, one hour drive from Mackinac Island, Harbour Springs, Traverse City , Charlevoix, Alpena and more.
