Heart Lake FISHING:

Heart Lake is located in Otsego County, Michigan. This lake is 62 acres in size. It is approximately 117 feet deep at its deepest point. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including Bluegill, Hybrid Trout, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Splake and Yellow Perch. The Michigan DNR releases 4,000 rainbow trout annually in Heart Lake.  (fishing licenses are available online or at many local stores).


Heart Lake Cottages is the ideal northern Michigan location for snowmobiling!  Located right across the street from Trail 7, we offer door to trail riding with instant access to Michigan’s 6,300 miles of snowmobile trails!

We have ample trailer parking, and a work area in the pole barn should you need a warm dry area to work on your sled…and get right back out on the trail!

Heart Lake Cottages is the perfect spot for your snowmobile group of 38 or less!


New to snowmobiling?, or always wanted to try it?  Well come on up and RENT a snowmobile.  DerMiner’s Parkside Market rents snowmobiles and will deliver your sled right to your cottage.  www.uprental.com  989-705-7051

Skiing/Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing:

Two great ski resorts are within 15 minutes of the resort, Treetops and Otsego Club (now open to the public as of winter 2017). 

Snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails are accessible right from Heart Lake Cottages.

ORV/ATV Riding:

Let's rev up our off-road engines and venture out on more than 3,100 miles of ORV trails. 

Michigan ORV trails run the gamut from twisty, single-tracks to rocky hill climbs to soggy mud bogs, all daring dirt bikes, quads and dune buggies to stir up the dirt. 

For a unique off road experience head to Silver Lake Sand Dunes, the only place in Michigan you can drive the dunes. Or get rugged on the ORV trails of Drummond Island. Are you ready to take it off-road and enjoy the muddy side of Pure Michigan?

Heart Lake Cottages is located in the Heart of Northern Michigan, known for year round diverse

"All Outdoor" adventures.
