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 Barton.

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. In 2006, when the opportunity to purchase Hidden Haven came about, we jumped on it! It’s a great place to vacation but even a better place to live. The majesty of the four seasons in northern Minnesota is truly something to behold.

The resort business in the summer keeps us on their toes. Now that our children are adults and are pursuing their own careers, we rely more on summer employees but 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 but we keep busy working on a remodeling project here and there and sneaking out to do a little ice fishing.

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
