Property description

Located ten minutes from Big Bay Town Park (the jewel of Lake Superior) and fifteen minutes from the quaint village of La Pointe, you will find hip 'Northshore' with clean modern lines and antique accents which create a soothing Northwood's escape. A Tiki Bar, screened-in porch, Smart TV, a nice sized lawn surrounding the home, and a firepit and hammock mandate f-u-n, while four bedrooms with feather down blankets promise some deep z-z-z-z's. Serene, modern, with a brand new well-appointed interior, this retreat in the woods offers some serious get-away in the spirit of Madeline Island. This is the ultimate Midwestern Island getaway for a budget-minded family (sleeps 8-10, but the rate of $250 is for 8 Max, $30 each additional person) or for couples that appreciate a more current aesthetic. We are also dog-friendly! ($30 pet fee). Families with little ones and the elderly especially appreciate that it is all one level and very child-safe. And the cabin has super high speed internet!
Wake up and you can only see the woods, hear the wind. Have coffee in fresh new space decorated by young designer. Ride bikes to Big Bay, swim under bridge in lagoon out into the waves. At home, wash the lake off, have a drink at the Tiki Bar, grill, then circle the firepit and watch the sparks join the stars above. Fall into goose-down bedding and dream that your vacation never ends...

Frequently Asked Questions: The rental is about 2 miles from the beach (Big Bay) and 8 miles from town. It's located on Northshore Road, just north of Benjamin Blvd. For sleeping arrangements there are 4 bedrooms: one queen, two full, and one with two twins. There is also a fold-out couch for an extra charge ($30 for each guest over 8 people). For a fee, guests can use the pool, spa, and sauna at the Inn on Madeline Island in town. There are two full bathrooms and an outdoor shower.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Sarah Luck Pearson and Bob Douglas have lived on beautiful Madeline Island for 7 years where she wrote and he built custom homes. Bob's parents, Lynn and Ginny, also owners, live South of the Twin Cities but love to make the trip North to spend time with family, fish, play cards, and boat. 'Northshore' is an extension of family and of their love of the magical island of Madeline.

Why La Pointe, WI, USA:
Madeline Island is the jewel of Lake Superior and the only place in the Midwest that has humidity-free summers. It's the Caribbean of the Northwoods! It also has one of the warmest communities we have ever experienced. Come one year, make friends, and you will be back for years to come. We also are enchanted with the nearby Big Bay Town Park that has a long white sand beach and lagoon... one of the most stunning places we've ever seen!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wake up and can only see the woods, hear the wind. Have coffee in fresh new space decorated by young designer. Ride bikes to Big Bay, swim under bridge in lagoon out into the waves. At home, wash the lake off in outdoor shower, nap in hammock, have a drink at the Tiki Bar, grill, then around the firepit watch the sparks join the stars above. Fall into goose-down bedding and dream that your vacation never ends...
