About Barbara & Richard Cardinal

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.

Barbara & Richard Cardinal purchased this Cabin in 2003

Why Barbara & Richard Cardinal chose Frankford

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.

What makes this Cabin unique

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.

                                                              Beautiful and Quaint

                                                              I booked Barbara and Richard's cabin for a couple nights after Valentine's Day as a surprise to my girlfriend. We loved staying in the cabin and reading about its history. We had lunch at the Carriage House overlooking the lake. We will definitely be back for another stay, maybe with the kids next time.

                                                              We are having a great time. The cabin is amazing.

                                                              Thank you all for taking good care of our Cabin during your stay. I am glad you enjoyed yourselves and hope you have better snowboarding conditions the next time you come to the Cabin. The rain and sudden drop in temperature is not a favorite for Mountain Creek!! Remember, we rent all year round.

                                                              Thank you for the tip you left. It is appreciated, but unnecessary.
