Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 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.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend here.. A cozy cabin, perfect for 4 people. The kitchen is nicely equipped! Beds were pretty comfy--and you could hear the waves....*smiles*

We were here in late September, and stayed nice and toasty in the evenings with the fireplace..

Owners were quick to answer any questions I had before the trip, and I much appreciated that!

The beachfront changes dramatically from day to day-- when we got there there was a sand beach, and we walked over to sit on the dock and watch the sun go down...But by Morning the wind in the waves had washed the sand out to reveal Rock... as the waves lapped the bottom steps... no beach to be seen.... It was Facinating to watch the changing waterfront... I'd recommend Bayside to anyone looking for a quiet get-away... Big Bay State Park is not far away, with easy hiking trails.. and the Town Park has a Beautiful Beach area as well....

Great cottage on the southeast shore of Madeline Island!

  • 5 of 5

Bayside is a super cute cottage. Jim and Renee are great hosts! After a couple bumps at check-in, which Jim and Renee resolved right away (despite being in an airport out of state), we settled into the cute cottage. Sunrises down the shore were fantastic. We fell asleep every night to the sound of the waves rolling onto the shoreline, they were so close that they sounded like they were lapping against the cottage. We ate our meals on the screen porch with the beautiful view of Lake Superior. The shoreline was ever changing due to the nature of Lake Superior and several days of south winds. The cottage is located a ways outside of La Pointe, which offers a lot of privacy and quiet. Bayside is a great place to escape and slow down. We highly recommend it, and plan to stay again in the future! Thanks Jim & Renee!

Lovely oasis on the shore!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful days here in early September. While not luxurious in the traditional sense, the space is spotless, well laid out, and perfect for zen moments on the island. We did go to Big Bay State Park and LaPointe, but spent most of our time relishing the cozy cottage’s attributes.

The kitchen worked well for preparing our meals (buy groceries before getting on the ferry!) while the living room and porch were where we spent most of our time. Bedrooms and bath were functional and comfortable. Hearing the gentle waves from the bedroom is a plus. We did spend time on the tiny beach with the Adirondack chairs which are easily transported down the few stairs. Sunrises on the beach were breathtaking daily! The pier is currently damaged, but I assume it will be repaired soon. There is no washer/dryer in the house.

In summary, the location and layout of this rental will allow anyone a perfect “exhale” on Madeline Island.

Short, but really sweet stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a long weekend at Jim's waterfront house recently and enjoyed every moment of the house, the lake, the hiking at the parks, the dinners in LaPointe, and the absolute relaxed pace of the island. Living on Lake Superior means learning about the daily changes of the beachfront, the rhythm of the waves, the clarity of the horizon & the birds in action. We now know that what might be a large sandy beach one day, will be wiped away in another day, yet reappear on another day. It's all very fascinating. The house itself is depicted very well in the photos; it's very comfortable & functional. We really enjoyed the table on the porch for doing some crafts & would also be perfect as a puzzle table. We had planned to bring bikes, but had a change of heart due to some unsettled weather patterns & had plenty to do without riding. It is a perfect area for bike riding though with it's quiet & flat roads. Thanks Jim & Renee, we'd come back in a heartbeat & will be sure to let our friends know about your gem.
