We are ISLANDERS for many generations. On the Island we are in the Real Estate business located in town known as MADELINE ISLE Realty. Winters we esacpe to our Minneapolis home. Barge Bay was built by our family in the 1950's as a simple beach cabin as it is today.Our guests have been returning for several generations and feel as stake owners in this cabin. We hope that you wil enjoy it as much as our family has, a place to just hang out.
Bob Kron purchased this cabin in 1950
This is the finest private beach on Madeline Island.
The cabin itself was obviously very old (had been repaired and still needing repair in many places) but had everything we needed - kitchen, beds, bathroom. For 2 couples, it was just right. It wasn't any more or less than we expected. We chose this cabin especially because of its location on this portion of the beach. We like its remoteness, fabulous sandy beach with fire pit(s) right out the front door. I don't think it had been rented recently as there was a rather musty odor upon arrival but that resolved itself after a few minutes with the windows open. I'm also pretty certain that some unfortunate critter met its demise somewhere under the cabin as a distinctive odor wafted through now and then the last couple of days. We would stay here again.
Private sandy beach.foul odor in cabin upon arrival.after further investigation discovered dish pan full of water under sink.next day in daylight checked further to discover that the entire flooring , was wet with a layer of soggy paper towels under the dish pan full of foul water and a large quanity of mouse droppings were also the problem. Called owner to ask that someone handle this problem .no answer . left message. Cleaned up mess myself as no one came to do it. Crummy way to start vacation. Would not recommend this property in current condition.
My family totally enjoyed our stay at this little cottage! We've been coming to Madeline for decades, and this is the side of the island that is the best (in our opinions)! We come for the peace and privacy, which this cottage definitely represents. The place sits right at eye-level to the lake, and we had the entire beach to ourselves!!! Very private, simple and relaxing. Our dogs were welcome and had fun playing in the yard. The accommodations were comfortable and use of space was very efficient. We will rent this place again!!!
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.
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.
