Historic Horseshoe Lake Cottage

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and fireplace
This is a quiet lakeside cottage located on a fenced 2 acre lot. The original structure was built in 1927 by J. L. Burgie and has remained in the family ever since. Extensively remodeled in 2000, our lake house is a perfect retreat from the pressures of the city. A private pier (not child proof) and concrete boat ramp provide easy lake access. Even in the winter the sunroom is perfect for reading, writing or just contemplating the sun setting over the lake. For warmer days relax on the screened in porch.

Horseshoe Lake provides excellent fishing, and many kinds of birds and other wildlife may be seen near the house, depending on the time of year, including white pelicans, great egrets, bald eagles, barred owls, orioles, cormorants, and warblers. The Cache River Nat'l Wildlife Refuge is within about an hour's drive.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful lake house
The place was amazing. We loved all the antique furniture. The fact that it was located directly on the water was perfect for kayaking. Thanks so much for the wonderful weekend getaway!

5/5 Excellent

very good

1/5 Terrible

Dangerous property
The house is in a great location on the lake. The yard is large but had not been mowed or tended to all summer so when the owner finally cut the grass the day we arrived it needed to be bailed and amongst all of the cut grass was a large dead turtle shell. The bushes and trees surrounding the house need to be trimmed or cut down (dead trees, bushes hide all windows and some doors). The house is unkept outside as well as inside. The exterior doors are hard to open and one handle nearly fell off in my hand. The inside has cobwebs on ceiling and floor, the house was filthy - not sure we had clean sheets or towels, could use a good scrubbing and paint! The floors were eaten by termites and very uneven, the dock walkway was rotten so had to be very cautious when walking to the dock. The lake retaining wall is caving in and created a trench about 12 inches wide and 20 feet long - our dog fell in up to his waist (full grown lab) because it was hidden by the long weeds. It smelled like bug spray or bug bomb in the house so we were afraid to use their dishes, etc. This is the worst VRBO property that we have rented and we've been renting for over 10 years!

2/5 Poor

The house was nice but very dirty. The yard was not mowed and for what you paid it should have been better. The dock is very unsafe as one of our guest fell out of the boat trying to get on the dock that moved too easy. Top cap of railing cap off. Very unsafe and needs to be repaired.

4/5 Good

It's not the Taj Mahal
Overall, we had a great time. Six adults. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen was great. The screened in porch proved to be very pleasant especially in the morning. There were many updates. Probably not the place if you want to spend a lot of time watching TV as the TV's are small and without remotes. But if you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy the company of family/friends check this place out.
