About the property

Large lakefront home which sleeps 12 to 16 people.

This large lakefront "cottage" is on the East Shore of Lake Maxinkuckee. Enjoy the relaxed lake lifestyle with your family and friends in this spacious cottage feeling house. The lot is flat and has a nice grass area next to the lake and is across the street from the Maxinkuckee Country Club golf course. This property has more lake frontage than most properties on the lake and is offset from neighbors providing nice privacy. The home has a large pier which provides a great space for enjoying lake living. Relax with a glass of wine watching evening sunsets and boats moving across the lake.

The main portion of our lake cottage includes six bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 12 people. It features a large kitchen with a good size island along with a huge dining room which seats 12 people. There is an old school den as well as a large sitting room along the front of the house with full lake views. This main portion of the home is comfortable and well suited for enjoying family style lake living.

There is also a secondary connecting unit which includes two basic bedrooms, a modest bathroom, a family room with beautiful lake views and a smaller, modestly stocked kitchen. This unit is less updated and works well as an overflow area. It can sleep up to 4 additional people.

The basement has a washer and dryer and vintage pool table.

The home is located close to the Culver Marina and is about 2.5 miles from downtown Culver, which has a number of restaurants, a public beach and a grocery store.

We offer summer weekly rentals along with shorter minimum stays throughout the spring and fall. The close proximity to Culver Military Academy makes this a convenient place for Academy events. Rates vary by season and length of stay. See the rate section for more details.

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we, a few families came to Culver for schooling and relax. The house is closed to the Academies and convenient for school activities. More importantly, the house is facing the lake (great view and lakefront footage), well equiped with nice furniture, large rooms with 5.5 restrooms and 2 fully filled kitchen. Several families enjoyed the vacations together.

The owner is patient and flexible. As fresh international tenants, we are not familiar with the rules and processes. She was always timely response and gave much detailed guidance.

We had recommended this great house to our friends who had made the reservation for coming breaks. We definitely would come back and rent again in the future.

Wonderful Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful this lake home is. There is ample room for a large family, and great gathering spaces for small and large activities or groups. The home was clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped for all our needs.

The kitchen is fully outfitted, large and roomy! Very important with several families to feed!

With the unusually large lakefront footage, there was lots of room on either side of the dock for swimming and boating,

without intrusions from neighboring docks.

And the owners are super about working out boat docking and scheduling.

We love Lake Maxinkuckee, and the quaintness of Culver, with a few favorite restaurants and the Academy there for visiting.

We have reserved our vacation for 2015!

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a family gathering over Labor Day Weekend. Home is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. Dining room could accommodate our whole group (16) and there are multiple areas for conversation, games or tv. We never felt crowded in this spacious home. It's a pleasure working with Kathleen and everything was as promised.

Wedding Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a long weekend with family and friends for a wedding that was taking place in Culver. The view in the back sitting room is gorgeous. The house is a perfect lake house with everything you need. We had some great games on the ping pong table downstairs and hung out on the dock to check out the stars at night. I definitely recommend this house. Kathleen was a pleasure to work with and very responsive in getting back to me.

Awesome vacation location.

  • 5 of 5

My entire family spent a vacation here and cannot recommend this house enough. The house is huge, many bedrooms, bathrooms, extremely large kitchen and dinning room. There are more rooms, family and rec rooms then you could even use. The owners were extremely accommodating and our entire stay was great. The beach has the best sunsets on the lake and the golf course is literally right across the street. We will be back!!
