About the Property
2 Buildings, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms With 300 Feet Of Waterfront.
This property sits on over 5 acres with 300 feet of waterfront. It faces western sunsets and is surrounded by beautiful forest. There are two buildings: a lodge and a guest cabin. Bud’s Oasis (a fun local bar) is located at the entrance of the driveway. The property is within walking, biking or running distance to La Pointe where there are restaurants, bars, shops, a library, a public sand beach, the ferry docks and a golf course. People can purchase a daily or weekly pool and hot tub pass from the Inn on Madeline Island (which is located next to the marina).
The main lodge was finished in 2014. It is a light filled, lofty open space with a pine ceiling and cedar trim. It boasts a gourmet kitchen with a Décor stove, commercial sized fridge/freezer and two dining areas. Twelve-foot tall windows allowing for incredible views of the trees and lake surround the sunken living room area. In the same room: games and books line the shelves and a play area for children is great for keeping an eye on the little ones. A large loft is complete with a ping pong/air hockey table and comfortable seating for TV viewing. The TV also has Blue Ray, a DVD player and DirecTV. The loft has a queen sized futon.
There are three bedrooms plus a sleeping area in the loft. Two are master bedrooms each with a king sized bed. One has a pull out love seat (full sized) and the other has a queen/double bunk bed. The third bedroom has a queen – this bedroom is another upstairs area - with a twin bed. The TV loft has a queen futon. There are two full bathrooms and one half bath. One of the bathrooms has a tub; both have showers.
Two west-facing decks face the lake; both of them are off the master bedrooms. One is large and covered while the other is smaller and more intimate. There is a combination charcoal and gas grill outside the front door.
There is also a washer and dryer in a utility room which also has a small tub for cleaning animals or muddy, happy children.
The guest cabin was finished in 2002. The guest cabin is a cozy, two-level and timber-framed house with a sauna. It has a kitchenette with a Wolf stove, a small refrigerator and convection oven. There is a TV with Blue Ray, a DVD player and DirecTV. A deck off the upstairs living/kitchen area faces the lake. There are two bedrooms. One with queen size beds and twin bunk and the other with a double bed bunk bed with a single trundle bed pull out. A queen sofa bed is in the living area/kitchenette. There is a full bath with a walk-in shower next to the sauna while the other half bath is upstairs.
There are stairways leading to a 78 foot long crib dock with a 50 foot L added to it to be completed by July. This adds a whole new dimension to the property as it is if there is another room on the water.
This is an incredible retreat for large or small groups. Plan a family reunion or a get-away with friends. This could be a perfect place for a weekend seminar or workshop as well. Watch the sunsets while sitting under the canopy of pine trees. Listen to the birds all day and the frogs and owls during the night. There is a local bald eagle with a near by nest. In the winter, there is a mating coyote pair who like to hunt on the ice between the island and the mainland. We also have a local ermine family who are incredibly adorable but very shy and fast. Swim, canoe or kayak in crystal clear water in summer or snowshoe, cross-country ski or snow mobile in the winter.
Dogs are allowed with a one-time $50 charge for each dog. They are not allowed on any furniture and please trim their nails before coming. When you leave the cabin for an outing: bring the dog along, kennel or tie them up outside. Also clean up after the dog!
You will need to bring all your own food, beverages, condiments and spices. Beach towels are not available so please bring your own. Bathroom towels cannot be used as beach towels or for wiping dirty animals clean.
At the end of your stay, please strip the beds and start a load of laundry in the washer. If possible, do as many loads as you can since there are many sheets and towels.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.
