Property description

Welcome to one of Madeline Island's most beautiful properties.

Our home is located on over 900' of private lakeshore (18 acres) surrounded by beautiful white pine, maple and birch forest. The 3000 square foot home was built in 2003 from a 200 year old Vermont hay barn we had disassembled, transported and painstakingly reassembled into a luxury vacation home. The hand hewn beams inside are up to 20' in diameter and the walls are original barn board.

You will feel warm and comfortable from the moment you step inside to find a gourmet kitchen with Viking range and all of the amenities needed to relax and or entertain in grand style. Sit on the deck with family or friends and watch the sun set over the islands.

A perfect retreat for a couple or a larger group looking to experience peace and quiet on Madeline Island. Over the past seven years this home has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, the Discovery Channel and will be featured in the upcoming book: 'Madeline Island Summer Houses' by Linda Mack. The Barn is truly a work of art that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Link to review of Linda Mack's book featuring the Barn:

We are 7 miles from the town of LaPointe where you'll find restaurants, bars, ice cream and souvenir shopping. There are tennis courts available as well as a Robert Trent Jones-designed golf course. Moped, kayak and bicycle rental also available. Take the ferry over to Bayfield for a day trip of shopping and dinner out.

Available for weekly rentals during summer months or shorter periods in fall, winter and spring.
