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!

What a Week

  • 5 of 5

I have never used VRBO and was impressed with the process. Having booked early, we had enough time to make 3 payments on the rental. I phoned Michelle early on to ask questions and she was always available by phone or e-mail to give me whatever info I requested. The home is as described and totally accommodates 12 people. We had 4 kids under 11 that enjoyed the "bunk room". The kitchen is well equipped for large gatherings. We ate in often and utilized the gas grill, stove and microwave. There were plenty of towels for showers and the washer/dryer were great in keeping up with kids laundry. The town and beach are within walking distance (which we did every day) the grocery is close by as well as the Culver Academy which we had the pleasure of touring the grounds, seeing their parade and the Indian ceremonies. Yes, we came at a great time, when lake fest was going on and we viewed the fireworks from the lake. My daughter in law gives the coffee shop in town an A+. You can never go wrong with the root beer stand! If you get a chance to visit, there is a history museum adjacent to the library (which my nephew is a part of) and also the academy library and store in town as well as the quaint shops. I've been to Culver a couple times previously but staying a week gave me a whole new perspective of this wonderful town! I would highly recommend this rental. The owners take pride in the home and keep it updated. We had an issue with the A/C and Michelle was quick to respond and get the problem corrected. Upon check out, Michelle was there to reprogram the locks and asked what they could do to improve our stay. I gave some suggestions and really felt she listened and would take them into consideration. All in all we had a Great experience and would definitely stay again, hopefully next summer as we have family in town & our granddaughter wants to go to Woodcraft camp!!
