Recent Madeline Island reviews

  • Anniversary stay

    "First I want to say that Paul the owner was very friendly and helpful. We were able to contact him and he always contacted us back for any questions we had. Secondly, this house was simply old fashionably cozy! There was nothing but privacy at the home and backyard as it is very secluded. There was a nice clean yard with a campfire pit and wood at your convenience in a shed and a fire place in the living room. The upstairs had two rooms divided by a curtain. Honestly if I brought my young children I would still feel like I had plenty of space. We brought out two dogs with and they loved the freedom to run around in the back yard with us without worry of being hit by a car or in someone else's way. The pricing is reasonable for for the home setting and I would come back again. Now mind you it's not a 5 star hotel but it's a very old fashioned home and was nice to get a sense of how homes were built once upon a time."

  • Quiet and spacious

    "We enjoyed our stay at this lovely place. There were 8 of us - 4 adults and 4 kids - that found the house comfortable and suited to our needs. The kitchen was easy to work in and had everything we needed to prepare and serve our meals. An abundance of towels and sundries were available as well which was appreciated. Unfortunately a recent storm had decimated the beach so we weren't able to spend any time exploring the lakeshore and walking through the yard meant side-stepping a lot of goose droppings. It was necessary to consistently check shoes when entering the house to ensure nothing got tracked in but we were all aware so it wasn't a big issue. We enjoyed the area, Big Bay Park, and La Pointe. I suggest to make sure to bring everything you need and to fill gas tanks prior to taking the ferry to the island. Supplies were sparse in the grocery store and gas was $1.00 more per gallon than on the mainland. A great time was had by all and we would rent this property again."

  • aptly titled: a magical, handcrafted cabin

    "great place. our stay was regrettably short, but rewarding nevertheless. the exceptionally comfortable cabin is well designed, well built and thoughtfully furnished by owners with a "good eye". the space of the cabin is intricate and subtle at the same time, and exactly what a place like this should be. we hope and expect to return soon for a longer stay."

  • Wonderful Trip

    "We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Diamond. Enjoyed swimming at Big Bay Town Park and hiking at Big Bay State Park. The thunder of waves in the sea caves was amazing. It rained off and on, but we loved sitting in the porch (lighted with christmas lights) listening to the patter of the rain and the crashing of the waves. The view from the cabin was spectacular, especially during the Super Moon. We had a great bon fire and cooked on the grill each night. Loved the outdoor shower, especially after visiting the sandy beaches on the island. Had a good lunch at the Beach Club and drinks at Tom's Burned Down Bar. Our puppy appreciated warming up in front of the gas fire place, since he had to jump into Lake Superior whenever he got the chance. Would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone visiting Madeline Island."
