We’re guessing your daily life sometimes feels chaotic and noisy. You’ve probably come here to escape that for a while. Time on the water will soothe your weariness.
Our private 58-acre lake, Hoinville Lake is limited to non-motorized boats, with the exception of small trolling motors for our row boats. This means you can peacefully float around without disruption. We offer a variety of ways to enjoy the water. On Hoinville Lake you can venture out on row boats or kayaks.
If you’re interested in exploring further, we offer Namekagon River Canoe/Kayak Trips or River Tubing Trips. These give you the opportunity to leisurely float down river and be picked up and brought back to Heartwood Resort. These excursions are offered four times per day. For the river trips, we drop off at the Whispering Pines Landing and pickup at the Howell Canoe Landing.
The Namekagon River is a 99.5-mile long river that is a northern tributary to the St. Croix River. It is protected under the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Therefore, most of the river is undeveloped and home to abundant deer, muskrat, beaver, turtles and blue herons, eagles and ospreys.
Take one of our Rowboats out and troll around Hoinville Lake!
