Lifelong Best Friends with Husbands in Tow: for our eldest children's Bemidji State Commencement
"Two adult couples for two nights while our oldest children were graduating from Bemidji State. It's a 25 minute drive to campus, so excellent for this occasion, parents weekend or turning a campus tour into a mini vacation.
Despite temps in the 30's at night, the cabin is very much a home and we were toasty warm. The grill got use both evenings and it was a nice place to have a few guests out to after the ceremony. Kitchen was well equipped with dishes, cooking and baking equipment and top of the line appliances. Great bird watching and lovely night sounds of loons and owls. Clean, well lit and a fantastic private lake setting. Owner extremely straightforward and honest to work with, there were absolutely no unpleasant surprises. Want to return again for a summer and fall visit!"

"We had a wonderful time at the cabin. The fishing was really great! From crappie to walleye you name it we caught it. The cabin was very roomy. The really great thing that comes with the cabin is the fish cleaning house! We really put that to good use. We have been renting houses for 10 years and this one is one of the best for the buck! We will be returning."

"Our family of 10 just returned from Heart Lake and had the most wonderful vacation ever!!!! The owners have thought of everything and we didn't have a want for anything the entire trip! If you want privacy on a lake, THIS IS THE PROPERTY TO PICK. You can't even see another house from the property.....there must be neighbors as we saw their docks, but you don't hear or see anyone! Complete privacy which we absolutely loved!
Heart Lake was the perfect size, small but large enough to do whatever you wanted - with no public access you won't see lots of boats which made it completely serene and private....only boats from other houses on the lake of which there were maybe 12 other homes. At any one time we maybe shared the lake with 2-3 other boaters....and a couple loons! When we were there the water was like glass....the word peaceful just barely describes it. Heaven in Minnesota.
Weather was stunning - about 75-79 degrees all week, barely a breeze at all.....perfect for bonfires. Of the 2 fire pits they have - we chose the one overlooking the lake of course! They had firewood all ready to go for us.
We had tons of fun on the pontoon and fishing was WONDERFUL. We had a little trouble with the pontoon after our first night and owners came RIGHT AWAY to make sure it was fixed. They were wonderful, down to earth and easy and made us feel at home there!
We made two trips to Itasca headwaters - beautiful and something NOT TO MISS. Make sure and take the drive thru the park. They also have a great gift shop if you're looking for souvenirs.
Jacque said this was her home, decorated with her family pictures etc, and you can see that it is cared for and clean. We are thankful that she's opened our home to us and we felt at home there..... can't wait to come back!
If you are considering other rental vacations stop right now and rent this home on Heart Lake. Everything about this place makes for a perfect vacation and you will not be sorry!
Thank you for opening your home for us! We can hardly wait to come back!"
