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 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!

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 lost 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 & 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!
