This peaceful cabin offers 2 bedrooms: One with a queen sized bed and the second with 2 sets of bunk beds. It sleeps 6 comfortably. We have a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. A long deck and screened in porch on the front of the cabin offer views of the lake, the woods and often a deer or two. There is an outdoor shower for the adventurous types. A large outdoor fire pit is perfect for evening campfires and roasting marshmallows. The cabin is located on the north end of Madeline Island, about 8 miles from La Pointe. It is a short 3 mile drive or bike ride to beautiful Big Bay Beach and Town Park.

About Jon and Judi Sowl
We met on Madeline Island the summer of 1980. Judi grew up here and met Jon when he spent the summer here working. We were married on the island 4 years later and have spent many summers and vacation time here. Our three grown children have many wonderful memories of times spent at the cabin. We both have family on the island and in Bayfield. We now live in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin and visit the island as often as we can.

The property is more like a cottage not a cabin to us. A cozy cottage!
We had an incredible experience! It was a cozy place, not fancy, but we had everything we needed. We were able to relax, enjoy and make awesome memories with our kids! I am sure we will forever treasure the experience of being on this beautiful Island! I am very thankful for Judy being so accessible with questions and needs!
Thank you for your kind words! So glad you enjoyed our island retreat!
Nice place, very clean, great outdoor shower, great screen porch.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed our place.
Just what we were looking for!
The home is cozy and comfortable, just what we wanted. We practically LIVED in the screen porch! It was such a great place to eat our meals and play games in the evenings. There is no air conditioning in the house but once the windows are open, the cross breezes kept the temperature very comfortable for us. We liked being away from the hustle and bustle of a touristy place like Madeline Island but still felt close to the parks and activities we wanted to do. Our little dogs loved having a nice yard to run around in and we didn't worry about heavy road traffic. The property is very well-maintained and clean. We had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely come back!
Thank you Janelle! The screen porch is a favorite for me too. During our recent stay at the cabin I spent a rainy afternoon in the porch reading. SO relaxing!
The Hunting Shack
I never give bad reviews, but the owners should be a ware of these things.
- Dishes did not seem clean, they were cloudy like they hadn't been washed properly.
- The toilet tilted back and forth.
- We could not use the Wifi at all... wrong password?
- Mattresses were very old (perhaps from the 50s) Yikes!
- bedding(sheets and blankets) also was old and mostly polyester.
It may be fine for guys but women notice things like this. We all agreed we would not recommend this cabin to friends.
Sorry to be honest - but hope it helps.
Thank you for your candid review. I am looking into the concerns you raised and improvements are on the way.
Enjoy the northwoods
This cabin is the perfect place to sit on the great deck , enjoy the screen porch, take a quite walk or bike ride . We could not have asked for a more relaxed vacation spot . Fully equipped kitchen. Camp Fire ring . Out door shower .
Thank you !!!
Thank you for your kind review! It warms my heart to hear you enjoyed our cabin for all the same reasons we do!
