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 New Jersey

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.

Idyllic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and my two grown sons were looking for a place to spend some rare family time and this charming rustic cabin nestled in the woods was perfect. We hiked the nearby Adirondack trail and swam in beautiful Culver Lake. The house was very comfortable and stocked with everything you could need. My favorite room was the large screened porch overlooking the trees and the lake. It was perfect for drinking my morning coffee and listening to the birds. It made you feel like you were in a tree house. The Cardinals were the perfect hosts and were available to assist whenever needed. I would love to return in the Fall to see the foliage and start a fire burning in the huge stone fireplace.
