About Barbara and Richard Cardinal
The Cardinal family enjoys living just around the lake from our 2 vacations rentals. We are just a phone call away if we are needed and are able to tell you great things about this fun filled area.
Barbara and Richard Cardinal purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Barbara and Richard Cardinal chose Frankford
We chose to buy this rental for its location across the street from the Beach. Our other location is nestled in the woods on the opposite side of the lake so we can now offer our guests the vacation they choose.
What makes this Cottage unique
Once you pull in the driveway, you never need to get back into that car again. If you have small children this is super convenient. No car necessary, you can walk across the street for a swim and run back for nap time while you catch up on your reading as you relaxi on the front porch or getting organized for your next trip to the beach where the kids can have fun with new friends in the clean waters of Culver Lake.
Minimum age of primary renter:25

My family and I hosted Thanksgiving at Barbara's property on Culver Lake. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to cook with. There is plenty of space/beds to accommodate a nice sized group. Being from Arizona we were very happy it snowed because there is a huge hill behind the house that leads into the golf course which we used for sledding. We thought we were going to have to buy a sled, but to our surprise, Barbara even had one in the basement. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend to anyone that wants to stay in the area. Summertime at this house must be a blast.
Your are an amazing family and we were glad to host. It was a pleasure seeing your families gather to enjoy your holiday. We hope you come again and thank you for caring for your rental during your stay. Merry Christmas!!
Rented this house for family who were coming in to town fir my daughters wedding. They were thrilled with the house and said Barbara was a pleasure to deal with! Thank you again!
So glad your family enjoyed the wedding and the house!! We hope to see them again.
The home was clean and offered lots of sleeping options for a large family. We stayed a couple of nights to attend a wedding 20 minutes away so can't speak to the lake and those amenities. The house was well stocked, except short on toilet paper.
The beds were only adequate, especially if you are accustomed to a comfortable bed.
Perhaps I did not read all the details, but I was surprised to be expected to make the beds when we got there and then be responsible for stripping them and beginning the laundry as well as leave the house clean (cleaning supplies provided) unless I had pre-arranged a $250 clean up. Just a bit of a burden when traveling with a baby on 11-hour road trips each way.
I am so sorry you were disappointed. This is my only bad review and I am sincerely sorry.
I stopped making the beds because I found myself stripping and washing each bed in the house with every guest since I did not know who slept where or if someone slept in the bed and made it before leaving. Therefore, just be be 100% on clean sheets, I leave them for my guests to make the beds they wish to use. My husband and I have rented and had to provide our own sheets and linens or pay to use the ones provided. I never thought this would be offensive.
There were 4 more rolls of toilet paper in the master bedroom on the top shelf of the towel cubby. If I had known you needed more, I would have told you where it was or brought you more. Again, my apologies. Please always feel free to call your host. We always want our guests to be comfortable.
As far as the beds, I have never had a complaint, but we just bought a brand new mattress for the master bedroom. If you slept there, I will be disappointed in my purchase. Please let me know where you slept and I will look into that mattress.
As far as cleaning up after yourselves, the instructions are for the family that is not tidy. You would be surprised at how the house has been left. I just expect you to clean up after yourselves and not leave a foul mess. Starting the laundry is a help for me and is requested in any other rental I have ever been to at least for one load. I do all the cleaning myself so all is perfect for my guests, and every minute helps when I have many loads to do. I charge and extra cleaning fee if you choose to leave the house disorderly so I can hire help.
Again, I am so sorry you were disappointed. If you travel this way again, I will make sure your stay is wonderful.
Barbara was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She was very detailed with checking in and out. I was able to meet her & she was very accommodating. Her home is breathtaking & the neighborhood is so serene. My family and I are already looking forward to coming back
It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. We look forward to having you back again to enjoy our beautiful country spot. I also want to thank you for taking such good care of the house during your stay.
Great stay on Culver Lake...
The beach house on Culver Lake is a wonderful place to headquarter as you explore the areas around it. The house is clean and well equipped. The hosts are very helpful and address your needs immediately. This was my second time renting this house, and hope to rent it again in the future.
Great Late Summer Weekend Getaway
What a fantastic weekend. The house was terrific, the owner friendly and helpful and the whole experience at Culver lake awesome. I came with a few of my buddies and we played poker, golf, fished and watched Football. I plan on coming back soon with my own little boys and wife. Such a nice house, lake and town.
So glad to have you back for your yearly weekend. You always respect the house and we love having you. Hope to see you soon and we would love to meet your family.
