About the property

Private lakefront property, 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8 adults

Culver Lake is a private, clean spring fed natural lake nestled in the Kittatinny Mountains. We are neighbored by Stokes State Forest which helps to keep our private lake community filled with an abundance of wild life to enjoy including herons and eagles.

You will absolutely love the peaceful setting of Culver Lake. The lake is private and thus not open to the general public. Use the provided canoe or kayaks to get some exercise or enjoy the beauty of the lake. . Swimming from the dock at the house is wonderful. There are steps down into the lake as well as a floating dock. The water off the end of the dock is deep. Motor boat rentals are not available.

Parties by renters: While we understand renters may have house guests during their visit, please understand that we live on septic systems at our lake, and they are very sensitive. No parties with additional guests will be permitted unless specifically authorized by the Owners.

Please note that we do not rent the house for prom weekends and the minimum age for renting the property is 25 years old.

Golf: Play 9 holes of golf at The Robins Nest Golf Club directly across the street from the Culver Lake beach. Minutes away you will find the Crystal Springs Golf Resort at Black Bear. Farmstead Golf Club in Lafayette. Bear Brook Golf Club in Newton. Hidden Acres Golf Course.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a beautiful, relaxing home for the perfect weekend gathering. The porch is a great place to relax and view not only the sunsets but all the activities around the lake. The newly renovated kitchen is beautiful and the entire place is cozy and well appointed. Great base to explore the area and make many memories with good friends. Can't wait to come back!

Excellent time. The owners are very accommodating. I had to change dates so my family could come and enjoy their stay and they were very understanding. Once we arrived we never left the house. It was so nice we didn't want to go anywhere else. The back porch was great to just sit there and relax. We did all the lake things, swam, kayaked, and paddle boated everyday. My dog had a heavely time just watching the water and being around everyone. The neighbors on the left were also very nice, and even took us on a tour of the lake on their boat. The newly renovated kitchen was beautiful done and had everything you needed and more.

It has what they promise !

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at this lovely property. We plan to return when we can. The house is roomy, the bedrooms have beautiful views and the porch is even better than the pictures online. We didn't realize how easy it was to go from quiet afternoons reading to taking little dips in the nicely developed lake-shore water area, in easily handled kayaks.

A fully-stocked grocery store and lake-side restaurant are within a minute or less. We spent one of the hottest weeks of the Jersey summer enjoying cool breezes 24/7 on this Culver Lake house, which is just an hour away from New York City environs. A delightful (and very reasonable) winner of a vacation spot!

A lovely, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a sharing your charming lake home. Everything was perfect! It was conveniently located within walking distance of a market and a couple restaurants. Also, since we flew out from California, the location was just right to take a day trip in to New York City. The waterfront dock and porch were perfect for hours of reading and relaxing. The description in the listing was accurate and questions were answered promptly through email. The landscaping around the home is lovely. This was a perfect retreat! We will definitely contact you for our next visit to Culver Lake. Now that vacation is over, we're dreaming about quiet mornings on the porch and evenings of watching the sunset on the lake.
