My family purchased this home as a vacation gathering spot almost 30 years ago. While I live in Indianapolis Indiana this cottage is the favorite gathering spot for my children and now grandchildren. We spend some time here in the summer but rent many summer weeks. I also rent it out from September to May at a different rate for people wanting to stay connected to their children at the Culver Military Academy winter school located on the lake. It is my favorite place to be and it is well loved and cared for home.
Vicki purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Vicki chose Culver
I remodeled the cottage and guesthouse in 2005 replacing the roof, windows, siding, furnace etc and adding a screened in porch and a full laundry room in the basement. The bathrooms were all updated at that time also. As you can see from the pictures it is a well maintained and beautiful home.
