Have a wonderful time away at this attractive and clean lake home on Horseshoe Lake in Backus, Mn. Quiet in the woods setting. Watch the deer at the nearby feeders. Sit by an open fire! This single level, 6 year old home includes an open kitchen, eating area and living room.

The Master bedroom has a queen sized bed with attached full size bath and the other two bedrooms each has two twin size beds and another full sized bath. The cabin in set for 6 sleeping beds (guest mattress for 2) two large sofas and extra guests may bring tents, sleeping bags, etc.

Other Amenities: Large dock w/bench shared with my other cabin. You may bring or rent your own boat. Swimming at nearby sandy boat access. Separate gas grill, fire pit (bring your own fire wood and propane). Deck includes picnic table and swing also. Pair of swings for children. Large yard for activities.

There is approx a three minute walk to the lake/dock. Swimming/floating off dock but it is not a sandy area. There is a dock chair with ladder. The sandy beach is nearby at the boat landing where there is swimming...(4 minutes by driving to) or you may float to it.

Inside cabin is just about everything one needs. Coffee maker, toaster, etc. dishes, pots & pans, silverware, linens and towels, etc. Absolutely no smoking inside the cabin or garage as it is Smoke free! Soft water.

Paths in the nearby wooded area to walk. 4-wheeler riding on nearby trails, snowmobiling, etc., ice fishing, hunting (away from cabins), etc. Fish filet table near dock.

You may park your vehicles, boat trailers, etc. on grounds.

Contact owner about any pets you wish to bring.

Beautiful area for a vacation getaway; for a hunting party for nearby hunting; winter snowmobile trails; ice fishing; summer fishing on Horseshoe Lake, etc.

The lake is crystal clear as it is one of the only spring fed lakes in the area.

Please consider helping my staff, by removing any towels used in the bathrooms and any sheets and pillow cases from the beds used during your stay, just before you depart. Leave those used linens in the first floor laundry room. I do expect you to leave the house in same general state of cleanliness, as that in which you received it. However the remainder of all deeper and detailed cleaning and all linen washing will be done by my home help.

Please contact VRBO.COM to place a reservation...OR CALL EILEEN 612 310 3340

What makes this cabin unique

Nothing is better than having a home on a lake in a secluded area where you can enjoy Minnesota's abundant wildlife with the benefits of a beautiful accessible spring-fed lake for boating, fishing, swimming, etc...

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for a weekend. The home is wonderful! it is so much more spacious than the pictures portray. Beds have high quality mattresses and were comfortable. Nice little hike to the lake and the dock has a bench which was nice for a handicapped person in our party. We hiked the Paul Bunyan trail nearby. Walker has a dozen fun shops to explore.

Family and friends get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just wonderful, clean, open floor plan and worked just great for all of us! Really comfortable furnishings and the kitchen was well stocked with what we needed, and it was really nice to be able to cook in a real kitchen. The grill was definitely a plus too. We enjoyed the old school game that was there and more game, large yard and bonfire. Beds are comfortable and the house is nicely decorated. We loved the front porch with the picnic table and a swing. We didn’t get to enjoy the outdoor much because it's rained the whole weekend but we had a really good time spend with family and friends here in this cozy cabin. We’ll definitely be back! and consider bringing or renting a pontoon next time. Thanks Eileen for your wonderful hospitality and creating such a cozy vacation home!

Great Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay with our entire family. The lake is fairly private, so no congestion. Loved the wildlife coming into the yard and how quiet and peaceful it was. Everything you need was there for us when we arrived. Planning on going back again.

Perfect for Cabin Weekend with Old Friends

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had a large, open floor plan which was perfect for sitting around and catching up with old friends and singing karaoke. The cabin also was equipped with everything you would need (and might have forgotten to bring)- towels, plenty of cooking utensils, cooking spices, soap, and washer and dryer (perfect after a day of boating). The yard was large and provided plenty of space for yard games, hammocking, and a nice, large bonfire ring with minimal mosquitos. The lake water is clear and perfect for swimming. Floats are provided to make swimming off the dock easier and the dock is large enough for multiple boats. Out of all the cabin weekends we have done in the past years, this is by far the best cabin we have stayed at (with the best price)!!

Excellent vacation home. We had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean, very pretty and just the right size for our family. We enjoyed having the large yard to hang out in and the quiet. Watching/feeding the deer was an added bonus. Not something you get to do every day. The lake is super clear! If you have small children, going to the boat launch is your best bet for beach play. Swimming off the dock at the cabin is a bit tricky, but doable for adults or older children if you have a floatie. Overall, we had an excellent stay! Hoping to do it again next year. Thanks Eileen!!

Not the ideal cabin

  • 2 of 5

The cabin itself and surrounding area were beautiful and the lake was amazingly clear. The huge yard was great, my dog loved it. However, the lake is quite a bit further away than the pictures lead you to believe. The cabin had an ant problem. It was mostly in the master bedroom, but scattered throughout the house and outside. When we contacted the owners, they were unsure what to do. We had to remedy the problem ourselves with store bought items we paid for (the grocery story down the road is very convenient). There are only beds for 6 people (plus a couch for 1), not 10 as advertised. The bed linen was stained and dirty when we arrived, we spent the first day washing all the blankets (the washer and dryer work!). The AC worked great in the living room, but it didn't make its way to the bedrooms. Those were hot, I would recommend bringing extra fans. The garage was nice; full of water toys and but used as a storage shed by the owners. It could hold 2 cars(?) but definitely not the 4+ that is advertised. We had kids with and were looking forward to the "nearby beach at the boat access", this was not a beach. We could not find a place around the entire lake for little kids to wade in the water and play. And lastly, I like privacy when going to the lake; well the owner's cabin is literally right next door on the property. You share a yard, fire pit, and dock. They were nice people but all weekend it was as though "big brother" was watching you (and as you pull in there is a sign that states you are being recorded).

Owner's Response: I appreciate a response like this from ONE person in a group who was not not happy before she showed up... with my beautiful cabin and I did not have the opportunity to meet them . Everyone else in the group had a fun time! I do understand that there will always be people who have nothing good to say about anything no matter where they are and twist things up and be sarcastic.l And I consider it a waste of my time to have to explain anything someone wants to try and hurt the situation with. This just makes me APPRECIATE more all the WONDERFUL guests I have had and the WONDERFUL things that have been said in my own guest book. My husband, who just passed away, wanted a place for vacationers to enjoy and I will continue to do my best along with my children who come up to stay and help to see that this is
