Cabins in Northern MN

Get REFRESHED. Get INSPIRED. Get AWAY!

Meet Your Hosts


Welcome to the Hidden Haven Resort website and thank you for considering us for your next vacation. We are your hosts: Bob, Katie, Christopher and Molly Barton. We purchased Hidden Haven Resort in 2007 and are now in our fifth season.

Prior to moving to the resort we lived in Brooklyn Park, MN where Bob worked in commercial real estate management and leasing and Katie worked as a pre-school teacher in the St. Anthony-New Brighton school district. Since moving to the resort, Christopher (19) has graduated from Grand Rapids High School and attends Itasca Community College. Molly graduated from Robert J. Elkington Middle School to Grand Rapids High School where she is now a junior.

The resort business in the summer keeps everyone on their toes. You will see both kids working around the resort in the summer doing everything from cleaning fish (well, maybe not Molly) to raking the beach, mowing grass and selling ice cream and candy in the office. You will typically find Bob with a tool bag in his hand fixing something or working on a new project. Katie will usually be in the office assisting our guests and trying to stay ahead of laundry. In the winter the pace slows down some and when we aren't working on a remodeling project and Katie isn't teaching, we hit the snowmobile trails with our resort friends and enjoy the beauty of the northwoods.

We feel fortunate that we are able to live in such a beautiful place and even more fortunate to be able to share it with all the wonderful people we have met since the resort became ours. We welcome you to experience our little slice of heaven with us. Hope to hear from you soon!

The Bartons,
Bob, Katie, Christopher & Molly
