The only reviews I've been able to find have been somewhat vague. I anticipated a good breakfast but I was pleasantly surprised by the room. It is a converted motel and the size of the room and especially the bathroom reflect that. However great care has been put into remodeling the rooms. I can only attest to the Safari room...

The name is inn by the lake and truly by the lake, the lake is cross the street from the hotel. You can get a room overlooking the lake from the balcony. The owner said they will remodel the place since the place is aging, but nice for the price they offer. The location is awesome compare to others from...

This is our 8th time staying at the Inn by the Lake. The owners are wonderful welcoming people and always make us feel right at home. Each of their rooms are themed differently with nice bathrooms, microwaves, coffee makers and refrigerators. They all have nice modern flat screens with more cable channels than we have at home! Their daily breakfast...

We stay here 4 or 5 weekends per year whille visiting our daughter at the academy. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean & comfortable and Gina's breakfasts are always tasty. We could probably find less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations in Plymouth or Rochester, but this place is so convenient - within walking distance to campus and to restaurants in...

I have been spending part of my summers in Culver for over 25 years. On this occasion I opted to stay at the "Inn by the Lake" as this was a brief single night stay for my family. I was very pleased with the accommodations as they were clean and comfortable. Although the bathroom was a bit small it was...

Great location but don't expect anything but the very basics. One heater unit in wall. No heat in the teeny tiny bathroom. Light in bathroom works only with exhaust fan running which removes the heat from the whole place. Hot water takes five minutes to get to faucet or shower. Very clean and thoughtfully decorated. Mini fridge and microwave came...

Returning from Michigan just needed a room for one night on Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver, IN. Most places have 3-day to week minimum stay and this Bed & Breakfast did not require more than the one night. The B&B has 11 units and Gina was very pleasant and was able to show us each one. All had different themes and...

I have been coming to Culver since the 1970's and have watched the revival of the town and lake properties. Whenever we visit our children at the Academy, we have opted to stay in either Plymouth or Rochester. I have had some bad accommodations at those 2 towns over the years!This time I found this property and I was very...

Great service and a terrific breakfast. Yes, I think the place is a converted motel, but it is well maintained, has a great location, and Gina, the proprieter, is friendly and most helpful. And a fantastic cook -- the breakfasts were truly wonderful. Room was clean, and my wife thought the safari theme was cute. It's not cheap, but really...

Keeping in mind that nothing in Culver comes cheaply, I thought my stay at this inn was worth the price. The room was decorated with a nautical theme with lots of shells, nets, boats, etc., quite charming. Other rooms are decorated differently, so maybe they were not as pleasant. November is not particularly busy in this resort town, so it...
