The Heartland Trail is about 2 miles from the house.

To connect from the Heartland Trail entrance closest to the house to the Paul Bunyan trail its about 23 miles.
3) Can you swim in the River?
The River is clean and clear. However, the area around the dock is a bit Marshy. When my kids and I want to swim at this home we take out the kayaks, there s a sandy beach park a short kayak ride away and there are a number of nice sandy areas on the lake for swimming. Please make sure to wear life jackets and that anyone that cannot swim is properly monitored. Swim at your own risk.
We allow up to 2 vehicles at the guest house and up to 3 vehicles at the main house. The home has a large circular driveway, please make sure not to block the driveway.
There is room to park RV s or trailers, however, you must get permission, and you must not block the driveway.
5) Do the house and guest house rent separately?
