    About this property

    Heart Lake, All Sports Lake, Fishing, Snowmobile Trail, Cross Country, Swimming

    The cottage has been renovated, with new flooring and paint inside, with new siding, storm windows and a deck outside. The cottage is on Heart Lake, one of Michigan's deepest lakes, it's an all sports lake that's well stocked with fish, ideal for swimming and water skiing. There is a 7:30 pm no wake curfew, making the evenings quiet and perfect for fishing or a slow cruise around this quite little lake. In the winter Gaylord is known for down hill and X country skiing and snowmobiling. In front of the cottage is one of the major Michigan snowmobile trails that's groomed (never enough) 3 to 4 times a day. Inside there's a washer and dryer, dishwasher and everything you'd expect. Upstairs sleeps 4 and the master bedroom sleeps 2. The small town of Waters is 1 mile south, you'll find the Keg Bar and the Hill Top Restaurant both are nice. Gaylord, with Kohl's Walmart and Starbucks is 5 miles north.You won't be disappointed Snowmobiling: All major brands of snowmobiles are represented with franchises in Gaylord. Parts service and rentals are all available within 6 miles of the cottage. A major loop of the Michigan snowmobile trail system is 100 feet away from the front door. Down Hill Skiing: Boyne mountain, Boyne Highlands, Tree Tops, Schuss, Shanty Creek, and the Otsego Club are all within a short to reasonable drive. Cross Country Skiing: Forbush, Pine Barrin, Aspen Park and the Pigeon River are all within a stones throw of the cottage. Maps and rental equipment is available.

      Perfect getaway

      This property at Heart Lake had everything we were looking for in our long weekend getaway.

      5/5 Excellent


        The property is well cared for and the owners are attentive. It is exactly what you would expect and want for an "Up North" cabin stay.

        5/5 Excellent

          Everything You Need at a Convenient Location

          This cottage has everything you need to stay for several nights. It was big enough to accommodate 6 adults. The lake is very nice -- good for swimming as well as kayaking/canoeing. The cottage is clean and well-appointed. If there were 2 things it' was lacking(both minor), they were: 1) an outdoor firepit/fireplace (for campfires); 2) clothesline (for drying swimming suits, towels, etc.). But overall,, a very pleasant stay -- would stay there again.

          4/5 Good

            Lovely lake front getaway

            Tom and Lynette provided a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax in a lake front cottage. Beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything required to prepare meals, the view was outstanding. We kayaked around the lake several times and enjoyed swimming in the clear, cool lake. There were plenty of choices when it came to restaurants and shopping in nearby Gaylord and the weather was perfect! The only thing missing in the house was a hair dryer. Otherwise, we had all we needed for a time of rejuvenation and rest.

            5/5 Excellent

              Long weekend at Heart Lake

              Tom and Lynette were wonderful hosts. They were extremely flexible with us as we had to adjust our reservation slightly within a few days of our stay. The cabin was adorable and had everything we needed. We had a wonderful visit and made new memories with our kids!
