The Horseshoe Lake Cottage has a beautiful view situated right on the peninsula. Enjoy 2200 feet of private, waterfront peninsula in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Very secluded and quiet. There are only 4 other cottages on the gorgeous 220 acre Horseshoe Lake, near Republic, Michigan. Horseshoe Lake is mostly a sandy bottom beach, yet it is rocky in some parts. Its depth ranges between 10-15 feet deep, with a few spots at 20 feet. The property owners have created a small, beach area on a part of the peninsula. It has a slight incline. Kids absolutely love to play in the sand in this area. Great for fishing, privacy, and relaxation, This cottage has three-bedrooms with gorgeous views throughout. Windows surround the cabin, which makes you feel connected to nature.The Horseshoe Lake Cottage provides a very spacious and comfortable area, both inside and out, with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy. The master bedroom is spacious with a king-sized bed and TV w/ DVD player. The other bedrooms have bunk beds-- one with a double bed below. We also provide a washer and dryer downstairs for your sole use during your stay!
A simple boat is included during your stay. Plus, a 2 person paddle boat was just added! Fun for all. Some life jackets are there for your use, however they are just standard sizes. It may be a good idea to bring your own in case the ones there aren't a good fit.

Grocery Store: The closest, full-sized grocery store is about a 1/2 hour drive from the cabin, Ishpeming. It is the IGA Jubilee right on U.S 41. If you are driving from Wisconsin/Chicago, the last grocery store is in Iron Mountain. There is a little store in the town of Republic, about 15 minutes from the cabin, yet there isn't a large selection, and the prices are convenience-store equivalent. There is a larger convenience store/BP Gas station on the corner of U.S. 41 and MI-95, about 20 minutes North of the cabin.
Heating source: Not only do we have the fireplace, yet we do have forced air heat. The Horseshoe Lake Cabin is much more like a house. It is not a rustic cabin.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Vicki, what a great 1st night you had - the cruise and then sitting on the dock looking at the stars. When one is use to living in the city, seeing stars like you saw at Horseshoe Lake Cottage makes for a very special event. We wish you had let us know about the droppings in the yard and the porch and windows while you were there. We would have sent the cleaner out immediately to correct those things. Please know that next time you work with us, if you find anything amiss, just call us and we'll take care of it. We do hope that you come back again for more star-gazing!
