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

I've stayed at Heston's a number of times in recent years. I've always enjoyed my stays there. Barb & Greg have been very helpful. For instance, in 2012 I planned to so some late winter/early spring ice fishing for lake trout on Gunflint Lake, the lake on which Heston's is situated. Barb & I kept in frequent touch to monitor...

If you love nature, peaceful serenity, and the north woods, you will love this resort. The log cabins are very nice and well stocked. They are surrounded by beautiful large trees on the south shore of Gunflint Lake. You can hear the loons calling and the birds singing. Barb and Greg are extremely helpful if you need them. There are... More

Planned a multi-night trek in the area, but had to cut the trip short. No cell service in the area so I stumbled upon Heston's Lodge hoping to use their phone. Barb, Greg, and Paul were great -- even as I barged in on their mid-day tea time. They insisted I make myself at home and use the phone to... More
