Cottage on Horseshoe Lake
We invite you to enjoy our year-round lake cottage for your vacation or weekend getaway. It was newly built and furnished in 2008 and offers 1,200 square feet of living space including 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is also a large, breezy, full-length screened-in porch overlooking the lake -- perfect for dining, reading and relaxing outdoors. A Weber gas grill is provided.
In addition to offering 2 bedrooms (one queen, one full) and a bathroom (with shower), the main level has an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and living room areas. The entire main level was designed to take advantage of the spectacular lake views. You will also enjoy the gleaming hardwood floors, slate tile accents and custom-built cabinet with gas fireplace. The screen porch provides the perfect setting in which to sip your morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the lake. It's also the ideal spot to read, have a family dinner or listen to the two families of loons that have taken up residence nearby. The upper level includes a spacious recreation area with sleeper sofa, a (queen) bedroom and another bathroom (tub and shower). There is plenty of space for a maximum of 8 people. The cottage is a licensed rental by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Polk County.
Sit out under the stars and recap the day at the lakeside fire-pit. Lawn chairs are provided; firewood is available upon request.
Horseshoe Lake is truly a 'recreational' lake ideal for summertime activities like boating, water skiing and swimming. Those who like to fish will have fun reeling in Northern, Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Crappies and Sunfish. In the winter, you can enjoy ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and the many miles of snowmobile trails Northwest Wisconsin has to offer.
Looking for a little night life? The cottage is located just 8 minutes from the Turtle Lake Casino and a full range of slot, dice and card games. There is also a bowling alley and several restaurants and watering holes in Turtle Lake.
The scenic St. Croix Falls/Taylors Falls recreational area is within a 30-minute drive and offers hiking trails, canoeing, boat tours and more. Others in the group may enjoy the movie theaters, miniature golf, flea markets and antique shops. In winter, nearby Wild Mountain offers downhill skiing and snow tubing.
The town of Cumberland is just 20 minutes away and provides many rainy day activities including bowling, a single-screen movie theater, an art gallery/gift shop, antiquing and a pizza parlor located in a restored Victorian mansion.
Golfers can choose from several challenging courses within 30 minutes of the cottage.
