                        This lovely historical home is incredibly welcoming and comfortable. You will find everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, games for everyone in the closet and plenty of wood for the fire, Linens are clean and look new and there are lots of blankets and pillows. Attention to detail is evident in all areas of the cabin -- from the adorable country touches on the walls and surfaces to the overall cleanliness to the structure itself. The architecture is beautiful. We just loved the cabin -- it was so comfortable; literally a "Home Away From Home". With all that said, the cabin still provides that rustic, get away from it all atmosphere that we were looking for. As others have said, Barbara Cardinal was terrific. She told us about some of the history, pointing out the "Mother" house and another of the original cabins, etc. She was lovely and accommodating and made us feel welcome and at home. We are looking forward to our next visit!

                        Owner response: Dianne and Mark: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you come back and enjoy our cabin again and remember, we are open all year round. We look forward to seeing you again. Barbara and Richard Cardinal

                        Our family rented this cabin for the weekend, and it was wonderful! Our two kids loved their loft-like bedroom upstairs, the screen porch was a great place to relax, and the house was clean and homey. We used the grill for our dinners and had everything we needed. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We had full use of the boats on their dock, a very short drive from the cabin, and we enjoyed fishing and kayaking around the lake. The beach is fantastic for kids - with a diving board, snack bar, playground, and swim floats. We spent most of our time there relaxing and swimming. It was truly a getaway weekend, and we would love to go back again!

                        Owner response: Caroline: Thank you so much for your review and we hope you come and stay with us again soon. Regards: Barbara and Richard Cardinal

                        We rented this place on a last minute planned trip, and the owner Barbara Cardinal was prompt to make that happen. Our lookout was a quaint and cozy little place which is was this place exactly was. The house though a heritage property, was very well maintained and well equipped. We were a party of four along with a 2 year old and house had something for all of us!! A Screened porch where you could just sit and look at the forest view for the adults and enough children's books/games for the kid to be busy with. The owners Richard and Barbara Cardinal were gracious hosts and saw that our needs were addressed quickly. Our aim before the trip was to get out from the hustle of the city and that was what this place exactly provided. We left from here completely rejuvenated. We are more than satisfied with this property and looking forward to return.

                        We always look forward to coming to the lake and staying at the log cabin. It's such a wonderful historic home. I love waking up in the morning and taking my tea on the screen porch, watching the doe wake up and move around the mountainside. The house is equipped with everything we need while we're there and Barb goes out of her way to make sure we're comfortable. We've recommended the house to so many family members and friends and they've fallen in love with it as well. What a great place. Maggie Costello Trophy Club, Tx

                        We could not have been more pleased with our recent visit to this ideal cottage...on top of the fact that this was a totally last minute decision to get away & we were not expecting to find so many of the "prefer"s that we normally look for when renting -> like seclusion/quiet, clean, affordable, screen porch, fireplace, reasonably close to home...and what was the crowning point were the owners who are exceptional hosts, they in themselves rate a 5 star :-) they could not have been more accommodating & welcoming/friendly... This historic cottage is a treasure & the pictures do not do it justice, the architecture & craftmanship are something to behold, and the place is so well kept that you feel like you are a guest in someone's home and not just in a "rental" - overall you get a feeling of warmth, peace & contentment, which makes for a very relaxing vacation... the screen porch especially is fantastic for relaxing and enjoying the natural surroundings - which is exactly what we did & what this vacation was for -> to rest & decompress :-) We did manage to venture up to Sunrise Mt. which we drove up, but there are several different trails for the more adventurous, & once reaching the pkg. lot up top there is a short hike up a trail & the panoramic view is breathtaking! We are glad we got to do that & hopefully our next trip we can manage to get up there for a sunrise which I can only imagine is awesome...There seems to be quite a lot in the area for families to do but since it is just my husband & myself we don't look for much in the way of activities - although taking the boat out on the lake is something we will have at the top of our list for the next visit (God Willing) since we did not get around to it this trip...Lots of places if you like to shop/browse/antique, all within a short drive, not to mention farmers markets abound... The Lord certainly Blessed us with finding this vacation spot and we hope to be back real soon... Thank you Barbara & Richard for providing such a welcoming home! May the Lord continue to Bless you and your family...

                        Overall we give this historic cabin a 4 1/2. We spent a week here at Culver Lake during the State Fair. Enjoyed it immensely and felt at home. Carting sheets and towels took quite a bit of room in the car so I would recommend renting them from the owners. I spoke to the owners about reading lamps for the livingroom which we enjoy in the evenings and I am sure they will supply them in the future. A small ac unit for the upstairs bedroom would make the rental a 5. The use of canoe, rowboat and kyack was a wonderful ammenity and gave us alot of hours on the Lake. We hope to return for a longer time soon. We definitely recommend this property.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: This cabin was built in 1925 by a member of the Disney family and it was used as a hunting lodge for his friends. There are several cabins, none the same, scattered in the area around the mother house accross the street. This house is a member of the Historical Society and we cherish its welcoming charm.

                      Why the Owner Chose Culver Lake:
                      When we saw this property, we knew we had to own it. It is so charming and cozy, not to mention it is part of Culver Lake and all it has to offer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Lake rights to a private lake community for fishinig, swimming and row boating for our guests is a plus. Come back to the Cabin and feel the trees wrap themselves around you and put you a step back in time. Sit on the back screened in porch and relax in the peaceful quiet of the day with your favorite beverage. Evening brings fun around the chimnea toasting marshmallows and enjoying family fun.
