Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
