About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath ranch style home that is so easy to relax and enjoy!

Enjoy a fun, pet-friendly home with incredible lake views at a great rate!

You almost have to see it to believe it but this adorable little two bedroom, one bath ranch-style cottage offers a warm, welcoming experience that won't have you feeling like you are on top of each other! The living room, dining and kitchen area is has a large open-concept feel to it. You can host many friends and family members for a gathering and never feel as though you are overcrowded or need more room.

I have tried to think of every last amenity my guests might appreciate and believe you will find our home very well equipped.

The decorating style is lake-style nautical with lots of cottage charm that is sure to make you feel right at home.

Our home is in a great location with easy access to the public boat-launch that is less than a mile away. While it is not located directly on the lake and thus it does not provided dedicated lake access rights, it is situated so close to the lake that we are able to enjoy beautiful lake views right from our living room windows.

Adorable house in Culvee

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house in Culver and I would recommend it. We stayed in December and it is beautiful in the winter. With the 6+ inches of snow, a shoveled walkway and driveway would have been extremely helpful though. It was hard to get to the door in the snow with luggage, especially for my 70 year old mother. We had to park on the street because we didn’t want to get the car stuck in the snowy driveway. That aspect of our stay was less than ideal. But still a lovely home!

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

Conveniently located, cozy. Love the lake view. Stayed with total of 5 people here with only mild limitations given one bathroom. Still very manageable. My son is dog allergic and began to react very quickly upon arrival. Animal hair noted on some furniture and blankets. We will need to consider pet free locations in future stays with our Culver student.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely return to this pleasant cottage in Culver as it is a short drive from downtown and the Academies. We were able to enjoy views of the lake each morning as we sipped our coffee. Yes, one bathroom was a little challenging, but very doable for this family of 4.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I appreciated that this is a clean, comfortable, pet-friendly location. This was our second visit to this location and it didn't fail to deliver just what we were expecting. I love that it's pet-friendly, so we can bring our therapy dog with us. And it's nicely and appropriately decorated in a nautical theme for a house on Lake Max. Thanks again for providing a comfortable place to stay.
