Property description

.
BILLOWS BARGE BAY; IF IT'S BEACH, PRIVACY AND VIEWS THIS IS ONE OF THE ISLANDS BEST SPOTS;

.BARGE BAY COTTAGE;
Located on the Northern end of the island on the South Shore, about 20 minutes’ drive from the La Pointe village and ferry landing. Big Bay Park is a short hike or bike away.
Many of our guests have been returning to Barge Bay Cottage for many years and some are 2nd and 3ed generation.
LOCATION;
This is a true lake side beach property with its own private 400 feet of sugar sand beach just out the door. THE EXPANSIVE BEACH AND SHALLOW LAKKE FRONT IS A PERFECT PLAY AREA FOR CHILDERN. NIGHTLEY BEACH FIRES HAVE BEEN A TRADITION FOR FAMILIES.
The lake side location is secluded and very private. The cottage appeal is it is the cozy quintessential snug fisherman’s beach cottage with over the beach just outside your door with 180 degree Lake Superior vistas. Guests enjoy family activities such as swimming, snorkeling, the Finn McCool barge wreck, kayaking the bay, beach parties and long leisurely stroll’s along the beach. The water is quite shallow along the beach and perfect for younger ones to play safely. There is a beach fire ring and plenty of beach furniture.
THE CABIN’
The cabin features 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size bed; the other bedroom has two queen size beds. There is a full bath with shower. There is a fully equipped kitchen. The dining area and living room run along the lake front with panoramic lake beach views. At front of the cabin there is a large open lakeside deck for outdoor dining and features both a gas and charcoal grill and a perfect spot to keep any eye on beach activities. With prior approval guests may set up tents or hookup their RV next to the cabin.
PLEASE REFER TO RATE SECTION FOR SEASONAL OPPERTINITIES OR CALL US TO DISCUSS YOUR PLANS.

The village offers all the essential vacation amenities, casual to gourmet dining, gossipy watering holes, movies and books at the library, public tennis courts, challenging golf,
There are numerous arts and crafts and activities for children and young adults, shopping and lunch in nearby Bayfield or attend an unforgettable performance at the Great Chautauqua. Rent a moped, bike, hike or roller blade the quaint island roads. Or kayak the many Bays surrounding the Island or hop a cruise boat and visit the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Park and historic lighthouses. Or just lie back in the hammock or lounge chairs on the beach and soak up the beauty and serenity of endless panoramic vistas of the sparkling blue waters of Lake Superior and if your lucky a shimmering moon rise. Many of our guests have been returning for several generations and we think once you experience Barge Bay you to will remember it forever.
