Overview

La Pointe Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Blue Water Vista sleeps up to six in the quiet comfort of over two wooded acres on Madeline Island's South Shore. The home offers two bedrooms, two full baths, fireplace, screened porch, wrap-around deck, plus full kitchen, dining area and a commanding view of Lake Superior and surrounding Apostle Islands.

Unless you plan to dine out (there are several very good restaurants on the island and nearby Bayfield) you can bring provisions and cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Wine, a great cup of coffee and Marie’s signature cinnamon rolls can be purchased at Mission Hill Coffee in downtown La Pointe.

Blue Water Vista is on South Shore Drive about 2.5 miles from the La Pointe ferry landing . It is a nice bike ride into town. Blue Water Vista is also very close to the Robert Trent Jones-designed golf course and the marina.

Keywords: Lake Superior view, 2.5 wooded acres, private location, fire place, wireless internet

Wonderful island stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Blue Water Vista! Everything we needed was there. The cabin was clean, the lake view was amazing, we enjoyed the privacy of being in the woods. Perfect for a family , my two grandaughters ( age 4 and 8) had a blast. Beach and town are a short distance away. We had the fire pit going every night for smores. PERFECT vacation. The owners were courteous, prompt, and professional. We plan to book a second annual family trip at Blue Vista next year. THANKS so much!

Blue Vista Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I loved every minute at the cabin, plenty of room, clean and equipted for home and outdoor needs, plenty of games and movies. the fire pit was lit almost every night and the view was mesmerizing. Already we are thinking about next summer.

My suggestion for the Blue Vista would be to turn the water heater up. I think we wasted a lot of water waiting for the hot water, sometimes I felt like I was wasting gallons waiting on the hot water, once hot it's wonderful. Owner would save money and conservation by turning it up. see you next year :)

When can we go again?

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I brought our toddler to Blue Water Vista for a get-away. The cabin was as-described. We even had a double rainbow over the the lake! The best feature of the cabin is the amount of indoor and outdoor space to enjoy (especially with a busy toddler.) We will be back!

Perfect Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Water Vista met all our expectations. The ideal location, setting and accommodations

was perfect for our party of 2 couples. We biked, hiked, sailed and swam while there. We missed it as soon as we got back on the ferry!

Idealic Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Blue Water Vista for a long weekend. The cabin was extremely clean, spacious and accomodating. It was the perfect size for two couples. We thoroughly enjoyed the view and it was perfectly located between town and the beach. We will definitely be back!

Relaxing ... Just what the Dr ordered

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Blue Water Vista with our children (19,21). We all thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations - the view and the convenience to both the town and to the beautiful beaches.

We took advantage of all biking, kayaking, swimming and hammocking you can do in one vacation.

Thank you!!
