Madeline Island house description

You're ensured a memorable vacation in our beautiful home. It offers a secluded wooded setting with spectacular views of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.

The house has large windows that bring the outside in, two lakeside decks offer spectacular sunsets, a wide covered porch (perfect for being outside if there's a rainy day), and all the comforts you need to have fun, relax, and be with family or friends. Our kitchen is fully appointed, and is open to the dining room and living room. The bedrooms are private and comfortable.

Our home is architecturally interesting, clean, cozy, romantic, well-furnished, spacious, and peaceful. A perfect getaway...you won't want to leave.

'We had more than a wonderful time here. Everything you provided for us was perfect. In fact, we hate to leave!' John & Lisa. Hastings, MN -- 2011

Bloomington, MN -- 2011

'Simply a fantastic place...grazie mille (1000 thanks in Italian). You have thought of everything -- perfecto.) Tom, Carlotta, Mike and Sandy. St. Paul, MN -- 2011

'We had an awesome long weekend and appreciated everything about the house from the architecture which allowed the stars to be seen at night, to the hammock, gas grill, lake, video/audio collection and more. We all played hard, ate well, slept soundly and returned to our daily grind content and thankful for everything. Thank you for sharing your home and we hope to visit again.' Jay, Gayle, Cody, Anne, Kasey and Chad from Amery, WI, Sept., 2009

'Your home is spectacular! We enjoyed morning coffee on the front porch, the peaceful solitude and the evening sunsets. Your beautiful wood floors made for perfect 'sock dancing!'' Highlights of our island-adventure included golf, hiking, cliff jumping, biking, tennis, beach badmitten and shopping. Thank you for sharing your lovely home -- we hope to return to it again.' Tim and Michelle and family. Chisago City, MN, July, 2009

'Sublime! Our highest vacation rating. Ten days in your home have left us all wanting more -- eagles, bears, berries, cliff-diving, canoeing, swimming, the complete first season of 'The Simpsons,' great dinners prepared with a spectacular view, and kayaking. Thank you so much for sharing your treasure home with us.' Angela, Kelly, Noah, and Mia. Bloomington, IN, July 2009

'A beautiful home in a spectacular setting and what awesome memories we leave with. You have impeccable taste and obviously a flair for entertaining everyone regardless of where they've been or who they are. Loved everything so thank you for sharing your home. Our family obviously benefitted greatly.' Elizabeth & Family, Marshall, MN, August 2009
