Madeline Island Cabin on the Shore of Lake Superior - BAYSIDE

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, with 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom (Shower & Toilet), (Sleeps 2-4)

Our 2 Bedroom (lakeside), knotty pine, paneled cabin, sits so close to the water that you can hear the waves hitting the sand beach. Read a book in front of a crackling fire. Sit on the porch, or on the dock and watch sailboats glide by. Watch the water birds fish and hear loons call across the bay. Walk the beach. Relax and do what you like, it is all here on the Island!

Enjoy a scenic, relaxing drive to the Bayfield Peninsula and the Apostle Islands National Park. Just 220 miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, 1.5 hours drive from Duluth International Airport.

Madeline Island is located 2.5 miles by ferry boat, off Wisconsin's north most point; the Bayfield Peninsula.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We've rented a lot of different cabins on the island. This is one is easily one of the most well-maintained and comfortable ones (for small families) that we've stayed in, and the owners are gracious and attentive hosts. We would recommend it to anyone.

Great place! See review below!

  • 5 of 5

Cosy knotty pine cabin with all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay. Beautiful view of the lake and for us October bright fall foilage.

We could walk out to the end of the dock at times but because of the high waves both part of the dock & the Sandy Beach disappeared.. it was difficult to get down to the dock via a side path.

Bring your own boats if you have them.

I called our host Roger about lack of wood for the fireplace & he was very attentive to our needs.

Our hosts lived across the street and took me on a tour of their garden and gave us some delicious veggies to cook with.

I would highly recommend the cabin to anyone going to Madeline Island!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We've had a couple of bad storms this fall that damaged our dock. It is scheduled for repair this coming spring. There is a nice stairway to the beach see pics on VRBO site. T

Beautiful and relaxing cabin!

The cabin was very nice, basic, and can old not be closer to the lake! It helped make for a nice, relaxing weekend on this beautiful island.

Highly recommend, except for when we want to book again.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Madeline Island, we'll definitely be back and will stay here every time. If you are looking for a quiet place, this is it. If you want clean and tidy, this is it. It's toward the end of the paved road on the island, and even though the road passes roughly 10 yards from the cottage you'd never know it because there's virtually zero traffic. Yet you are just a 10 minute drive from La Pointe. We loved hanging out on the dock, the enclosed porch, BBQ-ing on the cozy back deck, and at night reading by the fireplace. So close to the water, each night we had the soft splash of waves-- admittedly it interrupted sleep at times, but it was a pleasant reminder that we were on vacation. Owner was quickly responsive to questions.

Sleep and relax to the sound of the waves

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well-maintained property. Owners live across the street and are very helpful. The porch was a highlight. Even in late September, it was great to relax out there,with views and sounds of Lake Superior.

Bayside is a perfect little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Renee do an amazing job of keeping things simple, humble and clean!

I rent this sunny little retreat as it's "almost off the grid" as far as my phone service goes as well as there is no TV which allows my family for the past decades have a much needed unplug!!!
