Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our home is a 3 bedroom plus den, 2 bath home located on Heart Lake in northern Minnesota, just 5 minutes away from the headwaters of the Mississippi River. This majestic home sits on 2 acres of land with 200 ft of lakeshore that will provide the perfect environment to unwind and enjoy your vacation. Our home has high cathedral ceilings in the living room, kitchen and dinning area with many windows to provide a great view of the lake and surrounding outdoors.  

A private and quiet, secluded lake with great bass, northern pike, crappie and sunny fishing (you can catch keepers right off the dock). Take in the beautiful sunsets serenaded by the loons at dusk; watch the deer feed in the yard mornings and evenings. Listen to the birds sing in the morning and the frogs croaking at dusk. (get the picture?).

There are plenty of indoor activities too; movies, board games, puzzles, coloring books and crayons, cards, cribbage, chess. poker, Chinese checkers. After the daily activities sit around a crackling fire burning in the large stone fire pit. Cook burgers and hot dogs on the swing-out grill (don't forget the marshmallows). Relax in the 2 person Jacuzzi tub upstairs in the master bedroom suite.

Or just take a blanket to lay on and gaze at the stars.

This place is about relaxing while being as active as you want to be. Play horseshoes, croquet, badminton or volleyball ( games supplied). Hike or pick wild raspberries. Enjoy water sports like jet skiing, water skiing, boating or fishing. Take the paddle boat or canoe out for a ride ( both provided). Take the kids to Itasca State Park for a bike ride. Go golfing at nearby golf courses, horseback riding, four-wheeling or just take a hike in the woods on one of the many trails around the property. 

Take a siesta under the trees, sketch a loon and her babies in tow or take a walk in a winter wonderland. Relax, enjoy yourselves and forget about the rest of the world for awhile. Come stay at Heart lake for an experience you won't soon forget.

About Jacqueline

The property was purchased in 1988 and there were many years spent coming every weekend all summer camping in tents, then a camper bus and then to a small mobile home. In 2000 we started work on building the home from the ground up with the help of all the children. The home is a labor of love. Over the years we have continued to make improvements on the home and landscape to get it where it is today. In the spring and fall I still come home to enjoy the peace and quite that only the Minnesota north woods can bring.

Jacqueline purchased this house in 1988

Why Jacqueline chose Park Rapids

We have lived and traveled in many different states. When I started to look where we wanted a vacation spot I just kept coming back to northern Minnesota. There is so much variety, with the four seasons and all the lakes. Most of all the sound of the loons call on the lake on a summer night while sitting around the camp fire with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

The home is on a 220 acre private lake and very secluded with only 16 homes around the lake.

Private boat landing. The fishing is excellent.

Hiking trails nearby.

Adjacent to state snowmobile trail.

Itasca State park (headwaters of the Mississippi River) 3 miles away.

Very nicely kept up and we had everything we need for our family to enjoy our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out time at the lake and the house had everything we could need for our stay. Our granddaughter especially enjoyed the "girl toys." The fire pit was used every night. Close to Itasca so we didn't have to spend a lot of time on the road.

A beautiful, delightful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Jacqueline made our daughter's wedding absolutely idyllic. She acquired a tent, rented chairs and tables and even fogged the grounds to rid it of the horse flies. What a perfect setting for this special day! The home is so very lovely and equipped with every amenity imaginable. The grounds kept immaculately and the lake is pristine and inviting. Our family couldn't be more grateful for the wonderful celebration we had there.

Perfect

We have been doing a yearly family vacation for 15 years choosing a different place each time. Couldn't ask for a more perfect location, lake or cabin. The owners made sure everything was perfect for our stay.
