About Daniel Theune

We are Florida residents with family on the island.

Daniel Theune purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Daniel Theune chose La Pointe

EVERY ROOM looks out over Lake Superior

What makes this cottage unique

The sounds of Lake Superior are an incredible treat. Some folks enjoy the sound of a robust surf while others fall in love with the gentle sounds of the water lapping gently at the shoreline as they fall asleep. If you enjoy the stars and occasionally Northern Lights then the island is your refuge. The Milky Way and a full moon will provide nearly enough light to read by.

Clean, spacious, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great kitchen. Plenty of space. 3 great bedrooms. Extra sleeping space in tv room. Nice fire pit. Would be nice to have sign stating dock master, just prior to driveway. Drove past it, address set back to far and not seen until you pass driveway.

Lovely home in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a beach house on Lake Superior where we could spend a few days with our family and we found it in this lovely home on Madeline Island. The setting was perfect with a private backyard, complete with fire pit and a stretch of sandy beach. This home is tastefully decorated with a lake theme and has all the luxury and amenities we needed for a fun and relaxing family vacation. Highly recommended!

We had a simply Superior time: Where the Waves come to Play.

  • 5 of 5

Madeline Island, your home and shoreline were absolutely wonderful. Your home provides a truly magnificent opportunity to enjoy swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and hours of beach combing looking for that perfect stone to skip across crystal clear waters. I do not have to tell you, the proximity of the home to the water provides such a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the lulling music and dance of water on rocks. Catching the full moon rise over the water while enjoying a bon-fire was an indulgence and personal highlight for me. I am sure many families do the same, in that, before our stay ended, we were already plotting on when we can make it back to the island.

Thank you, for sharing your island home and providing our family the opportunity to enjoy Lake Superior and Madeline Island. If you did not make your little piece of paradise available, our family, as well as many other families, might never know the specialness of the Apostle Islands.
