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

Relax and do what you like, it is all here on the Island!

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.

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!!!

Excellent cabin for 2-4 people

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd consecutive year of spending a summer week at Bayside and we hope to continue the tradition. As others have noted, this may be the best smaller cabin on the island. Great view of the lake from the front porch, close to the water, rustic interior of knotty pine, wood burning fireplace, modern kitchen, comfortable beds. One of the natural highlights is the gentle breeze off the lake that is almost always present on this side of the island. As well, the front porch is shaded by a few trees which helps to maintain a comfortable temperature inside. The owners are very personable and helpful. We highly recommend this location if you are considering a stay on Madeline Island!

Best rental on the island

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this wonderful cottage since 2008 (every year but one) and could not recommend it more highly. We love this place. It is nearly perfect, as close to the lake and its beautiful sounds as any other house on the island. The sun porch overlooks the lake and is a perfect location for reading, with windows and screens all around that can be open or closed depending on the weather. There is nothing better than sitting on the dock or in the sun room, watching and listening to the waves crash on the shore. If you're lucky, you will hear the loons calling over the water. At night, if there is no moon and the sky is clear, you can see all the stars.

It sleeps four (in two bedrooms with full beds); we have stayed there with friends, but this is also our favorite vacation spot for two. The location is ideal, on the paved road about 9 miles from town, so there is little traffic or noise but also no need to drive on dirt/gravel roads.

The house is fully equipped except that there is no TV, which we don't see as a disadvantage. There are dozens of books on the shelves and many jigsaw puzzles and games in the closet, so there is no lack of things to do. Internet access is available (but sporadic). Your cell phones may or may not work; I hear that coverage is decent with Verizon. There is a landline phone that can be used for local or toll-free calls. Take charcoal for the Weber grill and buy fresh whitefish or lake trout at the Island Market in town. There is a fireplace (with an ample supply of wood) for cool or rainy days.

The owners are lovely. We have met them several times; they have a house across the street.

After staying on Madeline Island many times and seeing a lot of different properties (condos and houses in and out of town, including some viewing from kayaks on the lake) and after renting another cottage one time, we return every summer and won't stay anywhere else. This is the best vacation rental on the island. We are already counting the days until next summer.

Don't be concerned about the small number of reviews for this property. The owners have been renting it for many years but did not use until recently.

The house and property are well taken care of, beautiful beach and view.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to get away from the busy work and school schedules. It allows you to just unplug all the electronics, slow down, enjoy each other's company and take in beauty of Lake Superior.
