.

BILLOWS BARGE BAY; IF IT'S BEACH, PRIVACY AND VIEWS THIS IS ONE OF THE ISLANDS BEST SPOTS; OUR GUESTS HAVE BEEN RETURNING FOR GENERATIONS!!!!

This cozy fishermans cottage is on the South East coast, on a pristine miles long sandy beach once lined with the docks, fishing tugs, boat hoists and modest homes of the families that once lived here and the final off shore resting place of the wreck of the islands dredger barge the Finn McCool, hence the area name Barge Bay.

This cozy cottage is nestled under the shade of a ancient beach oak and is the idyllic spot to stroll the beach, build sand castles, skip rocks, collect driftwood, enjoy picnic’s and set around a glowing beach fire with your family and friends at days end.

The quaint fishermen’s style cottage tucked away in a very private setting is just 20 minutes from the village and a stroll to the soft sands and sea caves of Big Bay Park.

The cottage features a snug lake vista living room is a perfect retreat to snooze and enjoy the stack of summer beach books. Or gather on the deck for coffee and evening beverages while stirring up your favorite BBQ grill creation.

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.

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

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!

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.

My husband and I along with our yellow lab spent four days at this cottage last September and will be returning again this year. It was wonderful place to relax and enjoy the awesome beach. We spent most of our time either on the beach or grilling and eating on the deck. The cottage was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this rental if you are looking for privacy and a short walk to the water,

Cozy, Peaceful, Private Cottage on the beach

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent a lovely week on the Island and we were fortunate to find this rental. The house is in a quiet location, with lots of land around so we felt really comfortable just being ourselves. The beach is great, with superb swimming right there - our 8 year old was in heaven, just running down to jump in the water whenever she wanted. The kitchen is adequately appointed for cooking and we ate on the porch after cooking at the grill every night. Two bedrooms, one with one double bed and one with two double beds. It's not fancy by any stretch but it is well maintained and tidy. There is a cozy little living room but we spent most of our time outdoors so that was not too important. No TV, which was surprisingly not missed by our kids.
Lots of adventures on the Island itself - the state park in particular for hiking, swimming and kayaking. We hope to come back again and rent this place - we really loved it!!

What a great beach front cottage! Plenty of room (we had 4). Well equipped. Loved cooking with the gas grill and eating out on the nicely shaded deck. Enjoyed morning walks along beach and using the fire pit on the beach every night too. The owner was very responsive and helpful - he made you feel like family. We also enjoyed the beach and canoes at the Town Park and State Park. We pretty much brought in all of our food, but enjoyed the friendliness and service of the Ed's Grocery, Mission Hill Coffee House, and had a great lunch at The Beach Club. This was a great place to unplug from business and relax in the beautiful, quiet "island-time" mode. We hope to come back next year!
