This is our second time to Hestons and we had another great vacation. Hestons cabins are so nice and close to the water - we could hear the loons at night and just walk down to our boat or the fire pit. Barb and Greg are very kind and they helped us to re-schedule our week when my son had... More

Freindly, clean, fun, and beautiful location. Lots of wildlife to see in the area. Great family oriented, they are very detailed and thoughtful with the extra provisional necessities ie; private dock area, campfire pit, BBQ grill, wood for campfire, matches, canoes and kayaks provided made the trip extra fun. Would definitely return.

We stayed at Heston's and had a wonderful time even though it was a little cool to do much fishing. Our hosts were friendly. Greg even helped us get our boat in the water our first day as the water was very choppy and I was having trouble. There is no internet, cell service or TV. It was good to... More

There are simply no words to discourage staying here. It's off the grid. Leave your chargers and devices at home, unless all you want to use them for are to take many photos. The owners, Barb & Greg could not be more accomodating or delightful. Their cabins are clean, comfortable and welcoming. They are not ritzy with HD TV. (that's... More

I stayed at Heston's lodge this summer on the advice of a friend and it was a true gem. It could not have been better. My cabin was perfect, charming and inviting. I had a private dock, and the friendliest loon ever! This place is reminiscent of a time passed, a family run, friendly, quiet lodge with beautiful big pines... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights in the Diamond Willow Cabin. It was just steps from the shore of Gunflint Lake and was amazingly peaceful. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We only used the bedroom downstairs but it had a comfortable queen bed with a good selection of pillow and blanket options. The room...

We stayed at this wonderful place for two days and we wished we could have stayed longer. There is a beautiful lake just steps outside your door and wildlife everywhere. Our cabin had everything we needed to make our stay very comfortable. The best thing was there is no TV, Internet or cell service. The hosts Barb and Greg are... More

My wife and I have been to many cabins up the North Shore in the past 29 years. This lakeside location cabin aptly named Cedar Point, certainly tops the list. The cabin clean and rustic that is nestled on a point that gives you three views of the crystal clear, Gunflint lake. We heard the most beautiful call of the... More

The Minnesota Rovers Outdoors Club and the Border Route Trail Association have a history with Heston’s going back 42 years to when Greg’s grandfather pulled us out of a ditch masquerading as a snow covered shoulder in 1971. Over the years they’ve been very supportive of our trail construction and maintenance efforts with the Border Route and other trails in... More

In late May, I solo-hiked the Border Route Trail and had the luck of doing the same route at the same time as two British girls, so my solo-hike became more of a hiking-with-British-people. They were volunteering for BRT maintenance after the hike and invited me to join them and the most exciting thing was that we got to stay... More
