Overview

Madeline Island Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Welcome to one of Madeline Island's most beautiful properties.

Our home is located on over 900' of private lakeshore (18 acres) surrounded by beautiful white pine, maple and birch forest. The 3000 square foot home was built in 2003 from a 200 year old Vermont hay barn we had disassembled, transported and painstakingly reassembled into a luxury vacation home. The hand hewn beams inside are up to 20' in diameter and the walls are original barn board.

You will feel warm and comfortable from the moment you step inside to find a gourmet kitchen with Viking range and all of the amenities needed to relax and or entertain in grand style. Sit on the deck with family or friends and watch the sun set over the islands.

A perfect retreat for a couple or a larger group looking to experience peace and quiet on Madeline Island. Over the past seven years this home has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, the Discovery Channel and will be featured in the upcoming book: 'Madeline Island Summer Houses' by Linda Mack. The Barn is truly a work of art that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Moped, kayak and bicycle rental also available. Take the ferry over to Bayfield for a day trip of shopping and dinner out.

What makes this estate unique

The barn at Madeline Island is actually a 200 year old hay barn that was lovingly moved from Vermont to its new home at Madeline Island where it was turned in to a breathtaking luxury home. Featured on the Discovery Channel, Martha Stewart Weddings and the upcoming book 'Madeline Island Summer Houses' by Linda Mack.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sanders and family - A HUGE thank you for renting us your home

on Madeline Island for K&L's wedding weekend.



Here is a link to a few pictures chosen by the photographer

to post on his website:

http://carrphotography.blogspot.com/search/label/Apostle%20Islands



We thought that you might enjoy seeing these, because we all read the

framed article about your wedding and it looks like K+L were

married on the same spot!



We had a wonderful meal catered by Good Thyme and amazing flowers

all grown on the Island and arranged by Cynthia Davell of Sylvan Island Events.



Your home was the perfect spot and exactly what K + L had hoped for

when they thought about their wedding day - close to nature and very, very special.



We tried to leave your property as clean as the day we walked in. (And it

was very clean on that day!)



Thanks again for providing us the contact information for your caretaker. He was a great help by coming to pick up the extra

trash and getting the septic company to come and pump. We all felt

better knowing he was so close.



Best always,

M&P



PS - Also had a lot of fun on the kayaks (we have some at home, too!)

and LOVED the paddleboard, the dock in general and the tree house!

Fell in love!

  • 5 of 5
This home is amazing! It was the perfect setting for a destination wedding in July. The ceremony was on the lawn with the woods and lake as a backdrop. The buffet was on the deck, fireworks were lit off the dock and lanterns were let go over the lake. We danced to the wee hours. Perfection!

12 of us stayed in the home which is spacious yet cozy with plenty of character and charming lux details. We were in awe of the vision that turned a hay barn in Vermont into a luxury home on Madeline.

We enjoyed big family breakfasts, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and being off the grid. A haven indeed. Thank you! Cannot wait for our next visit!

Even better than anticipated

  • 5 of 5
The photos of the Barn had us excited for a beautiful unique property, but when we stepped across the threshold we were amazed. This is a work of art, but completely comfortable and welcoming. It doesn't feel like a rental property, it is like you are a guest of your favorite uncle (who has impeccable taste). I appreciated the fine cookware, grill, stemware, and basic cooking essentials. The property is beautiful and sunsets glorious. My only suggestion is some options for blinds on the windows. While privacy is not a concern, the early morning sunshine is counter to long sleep ins. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing. We will be back.

Magnificent home with a view

  • 5 of 5
This home is a unique renovated barn. You feel welcomed from the minute you make your reservation with the owners. They make you feel as if you are good friends using their home.Our favorites were the screened in porch...a great place to play games...the kitchen was a cooks dream. The dock opens up to a view you will fall in love with. Great place to kayak,fish, and swim from. The path to the dock is steep as are most properties in Madeline Island and may not be great for some people. For our grandchildren, my husband and I it became a hike to the lake that we loved. Come an enjoy this property. It is a memory worth making.

Amazing home with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5
This home is unique and so welcoming. The owners are wonderful to work with. They make you feel welcome from the reservation process until the moment you walk into the door. Beautiful place to kayak, fish, and swim from the long deck.The screened in porch was our favorite room for playing games. And the kitchen, is a cooks dream looking out onto the apostle islands.. The path to the lake is steep as are most properties on the island and would not be good for anyone who has trouble with that. It was always a wonderful hiking experience for my grandchildren and myself. This is a true sanctuary . Enjoy!

Luxury Girls Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This was a dream home and location. I hosted a long weekend for 10 creative colleges and friends to relax. All the pressure of deadlines melted away. It was perfect to have access to the internet but no TV. The rooms where very comfortable and the living space was ample. I could not have asked for anything better. I can't wait to go back and share this place with my family.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My family has vacationed on Madeline Island for the past 40+ years, renting vacation homes for the past ten or so. We have stayed in some very nice places, but this one is really magnificent. The home itself is beatiful. The space is warm and welcoming, and very nicely finished. The waterfront has beautiful views and the dock is nice for lounging in the sun and jumping into the lake. Great deck and screen porch. A quick bike ride to the town park (big beach, bog walk, etc.). The kids loved the trampoline. Overall just a really great property!

Worth mentioning too that the owners were very nice and easy to communicate with, and they had care takers just a phone call away should you have any questions during your stay.
