About Camille Dalbec

Our family lives in Corcoran, MN and we have enjoyed going 'up north' to the Lincoln Lakes area, year round, for the past 18 years. We love to be out on the lake skiing, tubing or wake boarding and often come to shore for a grill-out and relaxation by the fire with family and friends.

Camille Dalbec purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Camille Dalbec chose Cushing

Rustic charm, modern amenities and an outstanding view with walk out lake shore are just the beginning of a long list that sets our property apart from the rest. Our cabin provides the modern comforts of home just two hours north of the Twin Cities. It offers all of the features of a north woods cabin that we enjoy and we know others will too.

What makes this cabin unique

This location offers beautiful northern landscape views, great water access for enjoying the lake, and is also close to cities such as Brainerd and Motely. Our property includes a level walk out to lake shore with a dock and boat lift. Easy access to the lake as well in the winter for snowmobiles. There is also a fire ring, large front porch with seating for 8 to enjoy the sunset, and 2 kayaks for your use; these are just some of the key features available. It is an all-around excellent setting for families, couples or those just seeking their own private getaway.

Perfect girls getaway location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with perfect view of the lake was what we had for our girls getaway weekend! Only 35 minutes away from Brainerd for lots of fun shopping. The seven of us ladies slept very well and were very relaxed after our stay. The interior has a wonderful "up north" feel to it and makes you feel right at home. The owners always responded promptly when we had questions and made sure the driveway was clearned of snow for our arrival. Thank you for the great weekend!

Great place. Very cute and cozy with a very nice setting.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it worked out great for us. Only minor complaint is the sulphuric odor of the water and it would be great if the upstairs bath had a shower. Loved the decorating and cozy environment. Plan to come back next year.

Wonderful Getaway-Amazing Kindness of Owners

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin a few weeks ago for three nights. We arrived in the early evening and everything was immaculate, inside and out. We were looking forward to three relaxing nights there, but the next morning, we received word from home of a death in our family. We immediately had to leave. Upon learning of this news, the property owner, Camille, immediately refunded the two unused nights rental fee and sent us a nice note of condolence. We couldn't be more grateful for her kindness and consideration. We will definitely be back here!

We loved The Fish Trap Lake cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at the cabin at the end of July. The interior was beautiful, modern, and clean. We appreciated the dock and lift, and kayaks. We spent our days fishing, tubing, kayaking, and playing lawn games. The cabin had plenty of room for our family.

The cabin is close to Pine Ridge golf course, and also the BP gas station for any quick trips.

We are talking about returning next year!
