Chez Madeline Island

“Love wins every single time when we join hands and fight for it just like it fights for us. Even islands are connected by water. Nature knows that without connection there is no love and without love there is no survival.”

― J. Autherine

Come Stay...

Come and stay at a magical cabin in the woods. Over 100 years old, it has been home to generations of people who love Madeline Island and appreciate the simple, quiet beauty of the woods and the waves. The "Big  House" is comfortable, thoughtful and large enough to accomodate large groups especially when rented in tandem with the "Wee Hoose" a secluded guest cottage on the property which overlooks the beach. 

What our guests are saying

Our family grew up on Madeline Island. What we consider the most magical place on earth. Several years back our family home was sold. Not to let our family summer tradition go we started renting Madeline’s home.

This cottage has been as magical as the Island. From the long-wooded driveway when you arrive to the wonderful sunsets from the front deck and dock.

The home itself has been amazing for family vacations. Truly a place for friends and family to gather for our summer vacations. Space for everyone, comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen where all can gather to make meals, dining room overlooking the lake. A beautiful living room with fireplace for game night or movie night.

The house couldn’t have a more amazing location on the beach and a close walk to town. The sand beach looks out to Long Island. The beach is perfect for daytime sunshine and evening wiener roasts.

The hosts are as wonderful as the home, gracious and accommodating.

See you next summer!
