Beautiful Sand Beach for Family-Friendly Get Away on Horseshoe Lake

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11-12, 100'+ White Sand Beach

Beautiful cabin located on Horseshoe Lake near both Brainerd and Crosslake, MN. This four bedroom (and bonus room) cabin has plenty of room and plenty of charm to go with it. 40' from the lake, this cabin gives you the up north, cozy feel you desire.

There is a sand beach play area, crystal clear water, and hard sand bottom for swimming. The large private dock is a great place to spend the afternoon sunbathing or just relaxing and listening to the loons. Children will enjoy playing on the swing set or building castles in the sand. Adults can explore the lake in the canoe, try their luck at fishing or adventure onto more than 450 holes of golf set in dozens of nearby golf courses. In the evening, relax in the screen porch or enjoy a lakeside bonfire with the kids.

Venture away from the cabin and enjoy the nearby shopping in Cross Lake, Nisswa or Pequot Lakes. Numerous stores, restaurants and bars with live entertainment are a short drive away.

Awesome beach!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very large group and this home was able to accommodate us all! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots/pans and plenty of seating room. The view from the kitchen and loft was amazing!! The beach was phenomenal and the kids spent countless hours playing in the sand and swimming!! They were catching fish off the dock constantly!! Just as a heads up, the water quality is very poor. We live in the country and are used to well water, but this was REALLY rusty water. The toilets and tubs were stained (no biggie) but when showering the water had a terrible smell and it ruined some of the clothes we washed while there. Thankfully we brought a lot of bottled water for drinking.

All in all-a blast was had by all and we would book this home again for another stay! Pat was so nice and easy to work with!

Very nice stay at this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great fit for our family. My family of four, my sister's family of four, and our parents fit great and worked well for every age range. No steep steps, great beach, the bedroom arrangements worked well, even for the baby who needed a quiet room. We had two boats that were convenient to dock or beach. The kids had a blast catching the (tiny) fish off the end of the dock, kept dad and grandpa busy. We had a fire on the beach every night. The cabin was clean and location was very convenient to Nisswa shopping and Cross Lake mini golfing on the overcast day. The owner was responsive and easy to work with, we would definitely go back.

Perfect Week in a Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place for our family vacation. The beach and the home were just as presented on VRBO. No negative surprises - all good ones. The beach was spectacular and the lake was clean and clear and the home fit our family to a tee. It was wonderfully clean with all the amenities one would need. From the beautiful dewy mornings to the lovely sunsets each day, it was a total pleasure. Hopefully, we'll be back to enjoy it all again.

This was our 2nd stay here and we had a great week with family. Pat is a great owner, very responsive to all our needs, large and small. This is the perfect spot for a family vacation. The kids love the sand beach and there is plenty of room for everyone. Everyone left with great memory's of a wonderful week together.

We all had a great time at this cabin and lake! The beach so far is the best we’ve seen! Our grandchildren had so much fun playing on the sandy beach and we all loved swimming in the crystal clear clean waters of Horseshoe Lake! Sitting on the beach around the fire pit roasting marshmallows, hot dogs and s’mores was so relaxing and perfect for ending our busy day! The lake home is very spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend it to other families.
