When I was a kid a friend of my mom's owned a cottage on Horseshoe Lake. All the cabins were owned by relatives and they called it Dun Roamin. Anyone ever heard of it?

I realize this is 4 years after your post and have no idea if you'll even see this.
My aunt and uncle used to have a place in Dun Roamin. There were two cabins on the non-lake side of the little road through Dun Roamin. My aunt and uncles place was in front (lake side) of one of those. I want to say three cabins up from the little beach. I was just talking about it at work and decided to try and look up if anyone rented cabins there. Saw this post. I'm looking to go back. I'm 37 years old abnd haven't been there in 21 years. My favorite childhood memories are of that place. Your friend wasn't Shawn or Steve Keyroe was it?

I grew up going to Horseshoe Lake. My parents own a cabin in Dun Roamin. I also grew up with Shawn and Steve. We have lots of great memories up there! We will be there this summer...

Stephanie, did your parents have the cabin across the drive from Shawn and Steve? My Aunt Diane and Uncle Frank had the cabin next door.

My parents do own the place across from Shawn and Steve. We shared a dock and a boat with them. I remember Diane. We had friends who rented that place before. What a small world!

Do you know the owners of my Aunt and Uncle's old cabin now? I have told my wife and kids about the place more than I can count and would love to take them there. I know there's a place across the lake, Beechers I think, that rents cabins but I really want to stay in Dun Roamin. If you know the owners, I'd love to see if they rent.

Beechers does still rent. I have never been in those cabins before, so I don't know how nice they are. The owners of your aunt and uncle's old place spend most of the summer there, so I am not certain they would rent it out. I will ask around and see if anyone is willing to rent. It is a great place for the kids and I can see why you would want to go back there!

Phillips own a place on the lake (not on Dun Roamin) and they have a little cabin that they rent out. I know that cabin is nice and affordable. Let me know if you want information.

I would appreciate any info on the Phillips place. I don't recognize the name but my Aunt and Uncle might. Dun Roamin would be ideal but I can always take a spin through there if we're at the lake.
Thanks for all your help.

does anyone know of the dun roamin cabins are mostly inhabited by owners or renters? We own a cabin on horseshoe and have had issues with a couple of pontoons that have been violating boating regulations... specifically regulations stating to remain a safe distance from other boaters. Both pontoons are currently docked at Dun Roamin. I would like to feel safe anchoring my boat and letting my kids swim but when other pontoons are cruising by 20-30ft from my boat, I take issue, especially when there is plenty of room on the lake to go around safely. I'm just wondering if this is due to renters not being educated or owners who don't care?

Suzanne, I am sorry that you are having problems with the boats. Dun Roamin is all family owned cabins. A majority of the cabins have been owned by the same family for MANY years. All owners should be aware of boating rules. If you do have problems, please bring them to the attention of boat owners as I am certain we all desire a safe lake.

Good luck!
