Horseshoebend house description

Crappie Cottage (named for the fish) was recently remodeled and is perfect for fishing, swimming, and relaxing. Charming, but not rustic (WiFi, 3 LCD TVs, DVD), it's equipped with everything you need except food and bait. There's a covered boat dock for fishing and you can moor a boat dockside. There's a large swim dock next door for playing or sunning. Crappie Cottage is in a park-like setting in a quiet residential cove.

Horseshoe Bend is one of the nicest areas of the lake, providing golf and fine dining on the Bend and a wide choice of vacation activities within a 15 minute drive.
