Lived on this lake every summer for 65 years. Family on this lake for 95 years. Love it summer or winter! Family owns house next door to the north and the lot between the two houses.
My grandfather bought the property next door to the north shortly after he returned from World War I about 1919 and then built the first house on this lake in 1921. The original rustic log cabin was replaced by the current existing next door house in 1946, right after World War II. My parents honeymooned at that home in 1947. I visited this lake for the first time in the summer of 1950 two weeks after I was born. I have been here numerous times in each year between then and now.
I bought the property where my current home resides in 1993. It was the fourth time that the property had been for sale since a small frame home had been built upon it in 1925 by an aging German bachelor who was also a master carpenter. The carpenter retired to this property in the 1930's. I knew this gentleman very well. I hunted and fished with he and my grandfather on and around the lake. He owned the property and lived there most of the time until his death in 1965. He left the property to his cousin. The cousin eventually sold the property and a sequence of owners enjoyed the lake and that same original house until 1993. I bought the property in 1993 and modestly improved and remodeled the original house several times. That sequence of efforts evolved over years into the net very substantial upgrade that is this current home.
My grandfather passed away in 1962. My grandmother passed in 1988. My mother passed in 1992. My father passed in 2011.
The property to the north remains today in the hands of my brothers and myself. Between us we have 9 children all of whom routinely visit and stay at our homes on Horseshoe Lake. My brothers and I have planned for and hope to pass these wonderful living spots along to our children and are now well prepared to do so, when the time is appropriate
