About the Property

Two cabins and great fishing!

There are two cabins with sleeping potential of 15-20 guests. The main cabin has 2 bathrooms and there is 1 in the guest cabin. Heat/AC with a kitchen are available in both cabins. Laundry can be done in the main cabin. Protected forest surrounding much of this loon inhabited bay makes for a relaxing day of kayaking and pontooning. Fishing from the two 24 foot docks on 156 feet of shoreline is a real kid pleaser. There is a large fire pit area to sit and stare into the fire or roast a marshmallow.
Fish Trap Lake is known for great fishing that includes all species.

Car: Necessary

This property is located 25 miles SW of Brainard, Mn with an array of shopping, antiquing, fishing and relaxation opportunities. Although not a true backwoods location, the surrounding forest and lower population density make it feel like you are truly away from it all. There is also opportunity for ice fishing, snowmobiling and hunting should you be lucky enough to draw a Camp Ripley tag.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife and I both grew up on farms in rural Minnesota and enjoyed time on the beautiful lakes in the area. We met at Chiropractic college, married, had 2 kids and settled on a farm in SE Minnesota. We have a busy 3 doctor clinic that services health needs in our area.

Why the Owner Chose Cushing, MN, USA:
Our family has always enjoyed the ambiance of a pristine Minnesota lake. We wanted to enjoy the mournful cry of loons while we sipped our morning coffee or glided silently through the water on a kayak. This cabin has spectacular views of the lake while being surrounded by protected forest land. It captured our imagination and our hearts when we first walked on site so we bought this little slice of heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we walked in through the front door we were immediately drawn to a panoramic view of the lake. We stood for a time just taking in the view. The cabins are all knotty pine inside with rough quarter sawn logs outside to give the true feel of a north woods experience yet within 25 miles of Brainard, Mn. Much of the surrounding area is protected forest for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing or birdwatching. The lake is very clean but I needed to have loons for us to consider buying the property. We love the loons! We were also amazed at the amount of room we had for guest with 2 cabins on site. Both cabins had all the amenities we needed including AC and laundry. We are thankful to be able to own this property and excited to share it with others.
