Overview

Horseshoebend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Crappie Cottage (named for the fish) was recently remodeled and is perfect for fishing, swimming, and relaxing. Charming, but not rustic (WiFi, 3 LCD TVs, DVD), it's equipped with everything you need except food and bait. There's a covered boat dock for fishing and you can moor a boat dockside. There's a large swim dock next door for playing or sunning. Crappie Cottage is in a park-like setting in a quiet residential cove.

Horseshoe Bend is one of the nicest areas of the lake, providing golf and fine dining on the Bend and a wide choice of vacation activities within a 15 minute drive.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

We love this place, it suits our style. Great location, ease to get into the water with small cove and floating swim deck. Very comfortable and attractive furnishings and landscaping. We come back year after year.

Excellent spot for families of 4-6

  • 5 of 5

Great location for my family vacation week. We accomplished all of the activities we had planned including golfing, fishing, hiking, parasailing, caving and shopping. There are lots of restaurants within 15-20 minutes of the house. The owners were very friendly, even when I had to have my 16-yr old daughter turn down her music on the swim dock. We especially loved fishing from the deck and boat dock. We caught bluegill, crappie, bass and catfish. The house is decorated very nicely and had everything in the kitchen we needed to eat-in.

How could anyone give other than a 5-Star review!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went in April or May 2014 with two of my siblings. The photos you see on this page are not "made to look pretty" by any tricks. Everything is actually this beautiful, this serene, this sparkling clean! There are so many relaxing settings on the property, we felt like we were on 4 or 5 different vacations when we moved from one deck to another outside space...each and every one with beautiful scenery and full view of the lake. My husband went fishing, my sisters and I sat and enjoyed the lake. We could have gotten up to do something....but none of us wanted to move...all week!

our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at the cottage with another couple who we have been friends with since grade school. Cottage was clean and had everything we needed. We loved the fishing and the swimming. We loved fishing from the docks and the deck. Had alot of fun reliving the old days and sitting on the deck late at night. We all hope to return for another wonderful vacation. Try to visit HaHa Tonka park and the ribs at Wobbly Boots can't be beat. We also enjoyed our meals of fresh caught catfish and bluegill we hooked right from the docks and deck. We will be back. Thanks Jerry and Candy for having a great place to rent for vacation.

Our experience at Crappie Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented for years at the lake and Crappie Cottage located at the 3.5 mile marker is one of our best experiences. The house is nicely situated with restaurants shopping and nearby grocers, is very clean, and has a recently updated decor and appliances. We fished and caught channel catfish and blue gill and swam at the private swim dock. The exterior of the cottage is beautifully landscaped and includes a small private beach. We highly recommend this property for groups of six or less looking for a relatively peaceful getaway but with access to all that the lake has to offer. To top it all off the owners appear to go out of their way to ensure renters have all of the amenities needed to enjoy time away from the city. We were very satisfied were our accommodations.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for 6 days for my parents, my sister and myself. We had a great time, the house was neat as a pin, well appointed, with a great deck overlooking the cove. Jerry came out to check on us, and seems very dedicated to making sure we had what we needed and had a good time. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to spend some time on the lake.
