Property description

Our charming, spacious 2 bedroom cabin on our private one acre island has 360 degree views of Fish Trap Lake. A beautiful, huge stone fireplace separates the living room from the kitchen/dining area. There is one full bath, a complete kitchen with oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, purified water cooler, and toaster, cable TV and DVD player, and air conditioning. The cabin sleeps 7 on beds (2 queens and 1 twin) and a futon (inner spring full mattress).

If lying in a hammock just feet away from the water is not how you want to spend your entire vacation (though maybe most of it), some of the best walleye fishing on the lake is located just yards off the island. Cabin rental comes with a canoe and row boat, but motorized boats and pontoons are available for rent. The outside patio comes with wrought iron chairs and table and a charcoal grill. A bonfire pit is located with great views of sunsets over the water. The swimming area, while small, is adequate for one family and is nice and sandy.

The Brainerd Lakes Area is located in the center of Minnesota and is the premier place to vacation if you want a lake experience. World-class golfing, fishing and boating, biking, snowmobiling, shopping — even bird watching or kayaking — are just some of the reasons people choose to visit the Brainerd Lakes Area. The region is an outdoor paradise, boasting more than 500 lakes and rivers as well as beautiful parks and forests.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have lived in the Brainerd Lakes Area for over 20 years growing up and on Fish Trap Lake for over 11 years, owning and running a resort. We love sharing our region's incredible beauty with others and are excited to own this island.

Why the Owner Chose Cushing, MN, USA:
Who hasn't dreamed of living on an island? Even as we were working hard to create this place, we felt as if we’d left the cares of our “world back there” behind each time we set foot on the island. Now we want to share that experience with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Incredible views and the privacy of your own island alone make this a premier vacation spot, but the gorgeous fireplace, wood floors, charming decor, and modern amenities make it even more desirable. If you feel being on an island may be a little too secluded, there is a resort with a coffee and ice cream shop, cute gift shop, game room, bait, and laundry room only a couple of minutes across the water and a bar and restaurant just a few minutes' walk from there.
