We purchased this condo in 2010 unfinished, we finished ourself as a getaway for our friends and family. We choose horseshoe bay condos for several reasons, the location, the fishing, the beach, and the added amenities of the resort such as indoor pool and marina just to name a few.
Of course with two young boys in school and sports, and a busy work schedual we can't be at the lake as much as we would like so we are renting it out for other families to enjoy.

Many years ago a friend of ours had a place at Horseshoe Bay and one weekend my wife and I stopped in and seen these condos for sale and decided it was a great fit for us. We like Horseshoe bay for many reasons. One is its beautifully protected sand beach just right out our front patio door that is super family friendly. And for me obviously the great fishing, I love to fish walleyes and there are few better places than Leech Lake. Horseshoe bay is centrally located on the lake so within easy boating distance to many of the fishing hot spots I love to fish..
The condos at horseshoe bay are conveniently located. We are just 8 miles from Walker and all its great shopping. We are only 5 mile from the casino, only a few miles from Moondance for the great concerts. We are located right among Horseshoe Bay Resort and have access to all there amenities, the indoor pool, the hot tub and sauna, the exercise room, fish cleaning shack, and if we are too lazy to cook we can walk right out the door and eat at the Iron Fire Grill or just stop in for drinks conversations at their little bar. They have a few supplies like ice; candy treats for the kids too.
Our family of 6 adults and 2 infants thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. The condo was perfect for our needs, and could have comfortably accommodated more folks. It was clean and very cozy. We brought our own infant beds and there was plenty of floor space within the bedrooms to allow comfort for everyone. The condo is big enough to allow sleeping and family time to happen simultaneously. The large main fridge, and extra refrigerator in the pantry were put to good use as we cooked and ate most of our meals in the condo. The kitchen easily accommodated many cooks working together. The resort has wonderful layout and amenities were easy to access.
All details were handled quickly and easily with Kurt by phone. We will rent again!
I spent a lot of time searching for the perfect place to take our family of seven plus grandpa for a week of fishing and swimming. We chose this condo because of its walkout access to the beach and spacious floorpan. In that regard it was even better than expected. The condo had plenty of room, towels, bedding, kitchen supplies. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The washer, dryer, and hot water all worked great. Wifi was acceptable. The resort had plenty of water toys such as stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and and water bikes. There was bait for sale onsite and a restaurant that we didn’t try.
The downside: The people in the unit above were noisy, we could hear every footstep and toilet flush.
The nail: Mayflies, zillions. We had no idea June into July would provide us this experience. I would recommend you avoid this season because it was horrible. It would be a nice place to stay later in July-August. The fish don’t bite because they eat mayflies instead. You can't be outside because the mayflies are dead and dying and landing everywhere and smell disgusting and crunch underfoot and need to be shoveled off the paths. Coating windows and walls and the beach and the grass. The beach would have been nice of the mayflies hadn't taken it over. Being that it was a resort the employees did an admirable job of shoveling, vacuuming and hauling the carcasses over by the dumpster. The mayflies spoiled our trip.
If you bring a boat be warned that you will need to pay extra to tie it to a dock. There are no campfire locations for the condo so don’t expect nights with s'mores. The resort was pretty much empty, we swam at the pool a lot and nobody else was there. Maybe the rest of the world knows to avoid Mayfly season.
Last of all we sadly forgot two pillows and two blankets when we left. We were informed that they couldn’t find them. I guess the condo is even better stocked now.
The condo was beautiful, had upgrades and open floor plan that makes a small group very comfortable. FULLY stocked kitchen essentials and more than enough linens. The setting was beautiful, close to the beach. Lovely facilities as well.
We had an excellent stay. Everything we needed or wanted was thought of. Beautiful setting, comfortable furnishings, and new/clean atmosphere. The kids had a wonderful time on the beach and the lake and as parents we felt relaxed and safe. Memories were made...
This was a fabulous week for us at Leech Lake! We brought our boat, and we were able to rent a slip at the resort. The Condo had EVERYTHING we needed, was clean & beautifully decorated. We hope to return next year! Great place!
What a great place to stay! The condo is very spacious, cozy and homey! It is conveniently located to everything. The owners were very helpful with questions when we were trying to decide on a vacation spot and even touched base with us during the week. Very welcoming! I'd highly recommend the condo!
