About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, large open loft, sauna, 2 fireplaces, Apostle Islands Views

Bayfield Migizi Landings Lake Superior Shore Home

Located between Bayfield and Washburn on the sandy beaches of Lake Superior sits Migizi Landings. You will quickly learn why this home is so special to our family.

Migizi Landings is a short drive to everything that Bayfield County has to offer. A very convenient spot for those who vacation, hike, canoe, kayak, ski, ATV visit the Bayfield Apple Festival and attend Big Top Chautauqua events.

Many have told us that once they arrive they never want to leave the home. Local craftsmen built the four-story timber frame home in 2001. Many of the large wood beams were reclaimed from area buildings. Like the homes of Scandinavia that have stood for centuries, no metal is used in the super structure of Migizi Landings. You will stare up from the great room and fireplace three floors above to the loft and vaulted ceiling in awe at the sea of pine.

The home features four bedrooms, three full baths, a large authentic Finnish sauna, two fireplaces, an outdoor lake shower and a large fourth-floor open loft. A three-quarters wrap deck extends to the back overlooking Lake Superior, Madeline and Long Islands. An extended dining table in the great room can accommodate large gatherings. Custom built furniture and art fill the cabin making it feel like home to all who visit.

We named our home Migizi Landings from the Ojibwa Indian (Lake Superior Band) name meaning bald eagle. On the day we bought the home in 2009 a pair of bald eagles landed on a tree on the corner of the property looking over Lake Superior. On every visit since we see them multiple times daily. Their nest is on the lake within a 1/2 mile of our home. Deer, fox, loons, pileated woodpeckers and much more are experienced on visit.

A post-stay cleaning fee is taken out of your security deposit. It is typically $150-175, but has been higher when the cabin needs more post-stay attention.
