Madeline Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

.

BILLOWS BARGE BAY; IF IT'S BEACH, PRIVACY AND VIEWS THIS IS ONE OF THE ISLANDS BEST SPOTS;

.BARGE BAY COTTAGE;

Located on the Northern end of the island on the South Shore, about 20 minutes’ drive from the La Pointe village and ferry landing. Big Bay Park is a short hike or bike away.

Many of our guests have been returning to Barge Bay Cottage for many years and some are 2nd and 3ed generation.

LOCATION;

This is a true lake side beach property with its own private 400 feet of sugar sand beach just out the door. THE EXPANSIVE BEACH AND SHALLOW LAKKE FRONT IS A PERFECT PLAY AREA FOR CHILDERN. NIGHTLEY BEACH FIRES HAVE BEEN A TRADITION FOR FAMILIES.

The lake side location is secluded and very private. The cottage appeal is it is the cozy quintessential snug fisherman’s beach cottage with over the beach just outside your door with 180 degree Lake Superior vistas. Guests enjoy family activities such as swimming, snorkeling, the Finn McCool barge wreck, kayaking the bay, beach parties and long leisurely stroll’s along the beach. The water is quite shallow along the beach and perfect for younger ones to play safely. There is a beach fire ring and plenty of beach furniture.

THE CABIN’

The cabin features 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size bed; the other bedroom has two queen size beds. There is a full bath with shower. There is a fully equipped kitchen. The dining area and living room run along the lake front with panoramic lake beach views. At front of the cabin there is a large open lakeside deck for outdoor dining and features both a gas and charcoal grill and a perfect spot to keep any eye on beach activities. With prior approval guests may set up tents or hookup their RV next to the cabin.

PLEASE REFER TO RATE SECTION FOR SEASONAL OPPERTINITIES OR CALL US TO DISCUSS YOUR PLANS.

The village offers all the essential vacation amenities, casual to gourmet dining, gossipy watering holes, movies and books at the library, public tennis courts, challenging golf,

There are numerous arts and crafts and activities for children and young adults, shopping and lunch in nearby Bayfield or attend an unforgettable performance at the Great Chautauqua. Rent a moped, bike, hike or roller blade the quaint island roads. Or kayak the many Bays surrounding the Island or hop a cruise boat and visit the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Park and historic lighthouses. Or just lie back in the hammock or lounge chairs on the beach and soak up the beauty and serenity of endless panoramic vistas of the sparkling blue waters of Lake Superior and if your lucky a shimmering moon rise. Many of our guests have been returning for several generations and we think once you experience Barge Bay you to will remember it forever.

Barge Bay on the North end

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place that allows you to enjoy the beauty and feel of Madeline Island in its entirety, you can find it right here. As a seasoned "summer person" that has visited the Island for decades, I can tell you that this cottage really does capture the character of the island. The inside of the cottage is cozy and comfortable, but if you're looking to spend time enjoying the Island, the beaches and Lake Superior - this is where you should be. If you've been visiting the island for a long time, you'll know that it changes you but you don't change it! That's part of what makes this place special - once you become and islander you'll see why.

Barge Bay

  • 5 of 5

This place is where family memories are made. My wife and I and our five kids have been coming here for 25 years....with each year a new discovery, but more importantly, this place never changes. The site is fantastic with privacy and sand everywhere and gorgeous views. Snorkeling the ship wreck off the beach, building sand castles, nightly beach bonfires, star gazing, biking, and beach combing are steps off the deck overlooking the sea grass. Once we arrive....we never put our shoes back on. Leave the windows open....the waves crashing on the beach will lull you to sleep most nights. The cabin is rustic, simple and charming....but also a great value considering the location, privacy, and sand. There is no TV...but who needs one when the quaint library in La Pointe has every magazine and book available you never got to read all year long. Amazing things happen when you leave the PS-3 or Xbox home....we start playing with each other again.

just ok--not so clean

  • 2 of 5

The location is excellent--private beach with hammock and chairs--great beach for little ones, but to be honest there are lots of rentals with private beaches on Madeline Island and it was expensive for what we got:

Outside: the place is generally messy: deck full of cobwebs, old chairs, --it hasn't been maintained well

Inside: the cabin is TINY so if you are more than 4, you will find it too small.

Kitchen was alright--just what you needed

Living room is even smaller--tiny couch(fits two) and one chair--no tv, music, etc. Bring your laptop.

Bathroom--bathroom was dirty--I had to scrub the toilet the first day and found hair and OTHER stuff in the tub--gross--it seems the bathroom was added after the cabin was built--very small too. Not cozy at all.

Two bedrooms are dark and the master bedroom was drab.(Heavy green comforters, chest,etc.)

A POSITIVE: Owner leaves aluminum foil, candles, cleaners(which proved useful) in a small cabinet.

For this price, you might try someplace else.

Couldn't imagine a more relaxing place to get away from it all with a beach that can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend at this cottage for my birthday with my friends and boyfriend and one of my dogs. The cottage was perfect, cozy and warm. Two nice sized bedrooms. The view to The Lake was unbelievable, but more unbelievable was the beach and how private everything was.

Great fire pit with ample outdoor seating. I will definitely be making this an annual visit and hope to get another long weekend in by end of the season!

Didn't meet expectations

  • 2 of 5

After reading the other reviews, we had high hopes for our anniversary getaway. There are no personal touches in this cottage - did not feel that owner ever spends time here..., kitchen provisions are meager at best - (had to scrub cooked on crud off frying pans before I could use it). No charm in decor (whatever there is of it!). Bathroom thrown together. If you are looking for a romantic, cozy, charming getaway - keep looking. The weekend we went was very chilly, the heaters in the front room barely heated the room - no heat in the kitchen or bathroom, heater in bedroom was way too hot. The location is beautiful. If you are planning to rent in the summer months and plan to stay out of the house most of the day - this could suit your needs. Overall - not worth the price asked for rental.
