Welcome to Heart Lake Cottages

Unpack & Let the Memories Begin!

Heart Lake Resort is northern Michigan's four season destination for outdoor enthusiasts!

The resort features seven cottages and two lake homes for guests of all ages to enjoy. All cottages and lake homes are only steps away from beautiful Heart Lake. Heart Lake Resort has been in operation since the 1940s hosting families for generations. From our family to yours, we’d like to welcome you to Heart Lake Resort where you can unpack and let the memories begin.

canoeing on Heart Lake

Summer Fun!

Guests will be lakeside from the moment they arrive! Explore crystal clear Heart Lake by going for a paddle with a complimentary canoe, kayak, or paddle board. Cool off from the hot summer sun by jumping in the lake from our swim platform. Bait and cast a line in a rowboat to catch a variety of fish. Or light a campfire with the stacked wood to enjoy an evening of s'mores and storytelling!

Snowmobiling in Northern Michigan

A Winter Destination!

When we say “from door to trail”, we truly mean it! Trail 7 is located directly across the street from Heart Lake Resort for easy access to a full day of snowmobile riding around northern Michigan. Not into snowmobiling? Guests are welcome to ice fish, snowshoe, cross country ski, or hit the slopes at one of the many ski hills nearby. All are welcome to enjoy Heart Lake Resort whenever their heart desires!
