Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Culver - Aubenaubee Lodge

Sleeps 14, 5 bedroom cottage in Culver

This large historic lake cottage was first built as a boathouse and fishing lodge around 1900. It sits right on the lake on a large piece of property in the middle of the historic East shore. Comfortably sleeping 13 people with 2 large dinning tables accommodating 20, it makes a wonderful space for families or groups of friends.

Lounge on the large screened-in porch, swim, sun, fish and play from the dock in waist-high waters, or dock your own boat if you like. We have a boat lift we can make available for rent if you like as well. We have water toys, floats and a kayak for your enjoyment. The lake is great for skiing and tubing, and the sailing & the sunsets can't be beat!

There is also a new cottage that shares the property and pier, and it is available for rent and sleeps 8 (see Ball Family New Cottage in Culver listings). You might want to rent both for an even larger gathering!

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About Janet Starkey, Rich Starkey

The property was first bought by our grandfather William C. Ball from Muncie, during WWII while my father William (Bill) Ball attended Culver Military Academy and my Aunt Lucina Ball Moxley mourned the loss of her first husband to the war. My siblings, Julie, Chip & John Ball and myself, Janet Ball Starkey, purchased the property in 2009 from our father who owned and maintained it for over 30 years. We all have a long history of wonderful memories growing up spending our summers at the lake.

Janet Starkey, Rich Starkey purchased this house in 1943

Why Janet Starkey, Rich Starkey chose Culver

My children, along with my siblings' children have also grown up with fond memories on the lake. I can honestly say all the cousins are more like brothers & sisters because of this lovely space that was provided for them during the summers. It's been one of the most valuable times spent together with family that I treasure dearly. I hope it would be so for your family and friends as well! By renting it out we hope to off-set some of the costs to provide future summer times at the lake.

What makes this house unique

From the large lawn, you can walk straight out to the dock with no steps (unlike many of the lake houses that have long walks down to the lake). Swimming is easy and is waste or chest deep at the end of the dock. Swing or nap in the lake side hammock & stargaze from the dock on our amazing clear night skies!

Family vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

A great time in a beautiful historic home. Everything was perfect, owner accommodating to our needs. Fortunate to have pier space to park our 2 boats. Lake Max great for recreational activities and fishing with our grandchildren. Sunset cruises and lunch at the marina via boat ride are a must do, otherwise grilling lakeside is the way to go. The city beach is accessible by boat which is great for families with small children. We will definitely make a return visit to this home.

Large Family Gathering

  • 4 of 5

Your cottage was perfect for our needs. We were able to gather a large family from all over the world for a relaxing and fun filled week. The cottage offered plenty of room and all the necessities with the exception of laundry facilities. Thanks for making your cottage available. We made memories for a lifetime!

Owner's Response: Dear Gerry, I'm so glad you were able to gather all your family together for a week at our family's lake house. You so remind me of my brother & his passion for skiing! And you will be happy to hear that laundry machines are going to be installed this Fall!

Graduation Weekend Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was perfect to entertain family and friends during a graduation weekend. It was step back to a more laid back time yet provided everything that we needed. We would rent this home again without hesitation.
