Property description

From the moment you walk in the door you will feel completely at home at the barn at Madeline Island.

Sleeps 16 in beds/featured in both Martha Stewart Weddings, Linda Mack's new book about Madeline Island homes and featured on the Discovery Channel (Great Retreats).

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.

Enjoy our over-sized dock at sunset. Stand Up Paddle Boards and Kayaks are waiting for you at the lake... You and your kids will love swimming at the shore.

A charming treehouse for the kids and a handmade bonfire area to enjoy marshmallows and cocktails.

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 huge deck with family or friends and watch the sun set over the islands.

A perfect retreat for a couple, a wedding, a reunion or a larger group of friends looking to experience peace and quiet on Madeline Island.

We've hosted gorgeous weddings, family retreats, reunions and honeymoons. We take extra pains to make sure your needs are met. (caretakers are down the road!)

The Barn is truly a work of art that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

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 (7 night minimum) rentals during July and August or shorter periods in fall, winter and spring (3 night minimum).

This review sums up your future experience at our home:
"The home was BEAUTIFUL. It was decorated lovely, with a warm and cozy feeling. It was spacious, clean, very comfortable and the view to Lake Superior breathtaking. The home had all the amenities we needed and the gourmet kitchen was fabulous. We spent a lot of time on the huge deck, which had comfortable seating for all. The dock was large and awesome where we spent a lot of time sunbathing, taking a dip in Lake Superior to cool off and trying our skills on the paddleboard. We had a lovely time and we all agreed that it was one of our best vacations. We also want to thank the owner and the caretaker for calling us to make sure we had everything we needed. That's customer service at it's finest. "
