Year Purchased: 1943
About the owner: The property was first bought by our grandfather William C. Ball from Muncie, during WWII while my father William (Bill) Ball attended Culver Military Academy and my Aunt Lucina Ball Moxley mourned the lost of her first husband to the war. My siblings, Julie, Chip & John Ball and myself, Janet Ball Starkey, purchased the property in 2009 from our father who owned and maintained it for over 30 years. We all have a long history of wonderful memories growing up spending our summers at the lake.
Why the Owner Chose Culver, IN, USA:
My children along with my siblings children have also grown up with fond memories on the lake. I can honestly say all the cousins are more like brothers & sisters because of these lovely cottages that were provided for them during the Summers. It's been one of the most valuable times spent together with family I treasure dearly. I hope it would be so for your family & friends as well! By renting it out we hope to off set the costs to secure the cottages for the future generations of family
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
From the large lawn, you can walk straight out to the dock with no steps like many of the lake houses. Swimming is easy waste or chest deep at the end of the dock. Swing or nap in the lake side hammock & have a bonfire in the stone fire pit at night.
