About Vicki

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.

What makes this cottage unique

*Screened in porch is favorite gathering spot in the evenings or when you want a break from the sun or want a nap on the big swing

*Sleeps 16 people

*Eating area on the boathouse is right on the water and shaded. Most meals are enjoyed there

*Cottage charm with pine and antique wicker and painted furniture and all new cottage style furniture in the living room and screened porch all done in "happy" colors

*Enjoy the hammock right by the lake under the big tree

*Big swing on the seawall for shady view of lake

*All sand bottom right off the pier

*Large antique pine dining table that seats 12 -14 people

*Guest house that sleeps an additional 9 people with full bath

*Fully equipped kitchen with ice maker, waffle iron, lovely dishes, big pans etc just like home

*Culver Military Academy on the north shores provide lovely walks

*Culver beach on the north shore with playgrounds and old fashioned root beer stand across street
