Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Gorgeous, cozy little cabin overlooking majestic Lake Superior. 80 foot cliff offers a very rare view of the lake. Fire pit on the edge of the cliff makes for magical evenings and gorgeous views of the moon rising and the sunrise (don't forget your own firewood)! The screened in porch is a perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just relaxing with a good book. The private outdoor shower with a view of the lake provides a unique experience you won't soon forget (and yes there is an indoor shower as well)!! There are 4 bicycles available for you to enjoy. An easy and fun 3 mile ride into town or the 1.5 mile ride to the beach at Grants Point. As you can see this small cabin's decor is warm and charming. The big soft leather couch makes for a great place to take that afternoon nap with a view of the lake right at your feet. Inside the cabin is a quaint little propane fireplace to remove the chill of a cool evening. There is one queen size bed and a comfy trundle bed which makes into two singles or a full when pushed together. It is a well maintained and well loved little cabin. Perfect for romantic getaways, small families, two couple retreats or small gathering of friends.

Nestled in the forest there is routinely deer in the yard, bald eagles soaring overhead and families of ducks swimming by. The glider on the cliff makes for a great place to meet for that morning cup of coffee!

Please note - to help with meal planning - this cabin does not have an oven. There is a microwave, stove, coffee pot, toaster, under counter refrigerator and of course a charcoal grill! Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cutlery, pots and pans and dishware.

Why Tracy Swirk chose Madeline Island

While traveling north from Kansas City one summer to escape the heat we were fortunate to happen upon the magic of Madeline Island. With no intention of buying a vacation home we fell in love with the island and were lucky to have found this charming cabin. In our opinion it's the center of the universe!!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Diamond home. The view is amazing the sound of the waves so relaxing as you read on the porch or nod off to sleep. The weather was perfect for us and Madeline island never disappoints , we had a great time exploring the island . Thank you!

Quiet weekend away from the city

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had all the amenities needed for the weekend packed into a mighty little parcel. We didn't want for anything and loved the outdoor fire pit and indoor gas fireplace in the evenings. It provided a relaxing base from which to explore the rest of this lovely island and oh yes, what a view! (Especially at daybreak with a cup of coffee!).

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house is conveniently located on Madeline Island yet quiet and secluded. It was nice to have the flexibility of the kitchen stove top and the porch was perfect. Very relaxing!
