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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Boat: We have a basic  fishing boat for your use, which is included in your rental of the Horseshoe Lake Cottage. We also have an electric trolling motor, with a marine battery attached for your use.

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Cell/Mobile Service: Cell service is spotty in the Upper Peninsula.  Still, we have found that Sprint seems to provide the best service in the area.  AT&T has been pretty good as well.

Coffee Pot: Yes, we have a coffee pot at the cabin. At times there is coffee available, yet we highly recommend that you bring your own. We do not inventory the coffee.

Fishing poles: Please bring your own fishing poles and gear. There may be some at the cabin, yet they seem to come and go. :-)

Grill: - We have a outdoor propane grill for your use. Also, there is a built-in charcoal grill pit by the fire pit. 

Heating source: Not only do we have the fire place, yet we do have forced air heat. The Horseshoe Lake Cabin is much more like a house. It is not a rustic cabin. :-)

Hunting: - There is no hunting allowed on the 20 private acres or on the adjoining private property.

Linens: Yes, bed linens and towels are provided. There is a washer/dryer at the cabin, that you can use if you would like to wash your linens during your stay.

LAUNCH: If you are bringing your own boat, there is a beautiful public boat launch on the north east side of the lake. 

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.

KITCHEN SUPPLIES: The basic kitchen supplies are at the cabin. Basic dishes, pots/pans, glasses, cups, etc. are provided, including basic kitchen spices. Still, we do not inventory these items, so if there is something particular you would like, we highly recommend bringing it.

Relaxing Getaway!
After a stressful summer for our family, this was the perfect place to get away to and relax. The weather was great-only 1 day of rain, so we went to Marquette to dinner, movie and Presque Isle Park. We also visited Copper Harbor, Pictured Rocks, took a tour and ate dinner with friends at Upper Penn Bible Camp near Gwinn. The rest of the time we relaxed at the cabin-did some fishing (caught around 20), swam, had a nice bonfire, took walks and read on the deck or down at the dock. Thanks to the owners for allowing others to enjoy this wonderful place you've been blessed with-and thanks to the caretakers for all their work in keeping it ready for the next guest. It's Saturday morning and I'm writing this down at the dock with the sun now up and a breeze off Horseshoe Lake. What a treat to be able to relax here!Date of stay: August 2014

Great fishing lake!!!!
We had a great time at the Horseshoe lake cottage. We caught tons of fish. The cottage was clean and felt homey. Only thing that would have made the stay much better was a fish filet station. It was difficult finding somewhere to do it but we made due. And brought back a ton of fish. We made somme great memories this year. Thank you.

Great Times!
My wife and I just returned from our long weekend stay at Horseshoe Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this location as there is plenty of entertainment for the outdoors enthusiast. Fishing was great for largemouth and smallies. The property is huge and private, perfect for our border collie to find plenty of squirrels to chase. The "nearby" restaurant at Silver Lake was enjoyable and is recommended. Thanks for everything.Date of stay: October 2015

A secluded, peaceful lakefront retreat.
Our family had an amazing month staying at the Horseshoe lake cabin. The weather was spectacular and the bugs were not bad by the time we made it up there. The property itself is breathtaking with 270 degrees of lakefront to view along with a nice cottage fully equipped to entertain and lodge a good number of guests. Adding the pontoon boat this year took things to a whole new level. My family will definitely be back.Date of stay: July 2015

Wonderful serene, secluded getaway!
Thank you for sharing this serene piece of paradise with us! Several days, surrounded by tranquility, gorgeous lake views, trees and the gentle touch of nature is exactly what we needed to escape the chaos of the day to day. We were there this past fall during the peak change of the season. The surrounding view of the lake and foliage was breathtaking from the comfort and warmth of the knotty pine, stone fireplace living room. We were able to comfortably sleep all 6 of us waking up to a beautiful, peaceful sun rise with the eagles soaring overhead. Boating, fishing and hiking at its best as we explored this enormous property, catching huge size bluegill. Will defiantly stay again with family and friends next fall! Date of stay: October 2013
