Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

First of all,This is the second time I came to Culver.I already had nice experience of the first time about this small town and about this householder,Which is her name is Michelle Smith.She is such a nice lady.every single detail about the house she care about it.You don't have to worry about anything about what you need in this house.The facilities are all your need and easily use to it.

Second,Seems like you know I rented the same householder's property .Just because I had a wonderful experience of my first Culver tour.I made a promise I would definitely come back here again at last summer.Now I made it.(I posted an interview last summer)

Third,about my trip,from China to USA.Such a long distance.And totally different country and different culture.Even though I can speak English and I'm well-educated.I still confronted lots of culture conflict.So if you can meet a nice person like Mrs Michelle Smith.That's very lucky of you

At the end,I just want to say,Culver is a very small town.there is no any hotel around.www.homeaway.com is gonna be your support.

Wonderful Home, Perfect for a Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property twice this summer and both stays have been wonderful. Michelle, the owner, was very responsive to our needs and provided a home with all the amenities you could need for a long weekend stay. We were so grateful that the home was pet friendly and we were able to bring our pup to visit the kids while they were attending camp this summer. The home was clean - a must for me! The location was perfect and allowed us to walk to restaurants, the lake and the Academy. We look forward to visiting again next summer.

Perfect for our Needs

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO to find a vacation house and the whole process was great; specially the owner, Michelle! This house was exactly what my friends and I were looking for during reunion weekend! Not overpriced, available and comfortable. Michelle was awesome! She answered my many questions and had everything ready for us when we arrived. We were within walking distance of the campus and downtown Culver.

Our group of friends that stayed have already decided to go back in 5 years for the next reunion!

Cute house in charming town!

  • 5 of 5

This house is cute and has everything you need to be comfortable. We were there for a week, and enjoyed the house, the front porch, the nice backyard and certainly the town of Culver. Michelle was a wonderful "hostess", answering all questions quickly, was gracious and flexible. The location of the house is super...walking distance to just about everything in town. The internet was fast and no problem, and having cable TV was great for some relaxing time. We hope to return in the near future.

Great house, friendly town, super landlord!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time renting this house and staying in Culver. The house is close and convenient to the lake and to the downtown shops. The neighborhood is pleasant and quiet. The house was comfortable and easy to settle into. The landlord was very willing to help with any problem and had anything I needed arranged for very quickly.Actually thought Michelle (landlord) went out of her way to be friendly and helpful. I would stay there again when in the area.

great location and well stocked kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed the farm house and Culver. The house is walking distance to everything and is located on a nice street with a spacious back yard for playing catch or other games. The back patio is great for entertaining and we enjoyed having access to a well stocked kitchen. We will hopefully be back to charming Culver next summer! Owner was very nice to work with as well!
