Welcome to “Cozy Cabin," your private cottage in the woods of Madeline Island in Sunset Bay of Lake Superior. Here you can check in, unplug, and go with the flow. Retreat with a book – or write one. Wander the island in search of myriad wildlife, or simply yourself.
A mile from La Pointe means shops, restaurants, and nightcaps are within walking distance. Bring a kayak to paddle the gitchi-gami waters at your own speed. The screened porch provides its own cozy getaway, and the shared dock offers a fabulous view of Bayfield and Basswood Island. If you're lucky enough to be here in the summer, you'll have the best shoreline seats to watch the spectacular sailboat races. When the sun sets, you can look forward to a night on the town, or the best night's sleep of your life – it's your choice.
Cozy Cabin welcomes you with sunshine, a fully stocked kitchen, a wood-burning stove, a pullout sofa for additional guests, and more!
A note from Emma (your host): we would love to have you as our guests at Cozy Cabin. We take SO MUCH pride in being great hosts (seriously- look at our reviews) and we truly want you to love your vacation with us. Please do not hesitate to ask for something specific that will make your trip to Madeline Island special. You can text/call/email me anytime and I will always be available to answer any questions and help with any needs along the way. We want to make this a 5 star experience and will do anything we can to make that happen.
We have a few things we ask from our guests. It has been our experience that this list is no big deal for most guests, but not all guests want this level of participation. If it doesn’t work for you- we may not be the greatest fit for your vacation and that is okay!
A Cozy Cabin Guest will be a-okay with the following:
*We are on a septic holding tank, so we ask that you use your best judgment to conserve water for toilets, showers, dishes, etc…
*Bringing your own sheets (queen for both beds), bath towels, beach towels, hand towels, shampoo, soap, pantry items (spices, sugar for coffee, etc…), ziplocs, & napkins. We do not have laundry in Cozy Cabin.
*We do not have someone collect garbage until the end of your stay and we have found that many guests want to be able to remove garbage and recycling as you go. Because there are little bear creatures on the island, it’s not an option to leave anything outside of Cozy Cabin. We suggest removing your garbage and recycling by bringing it to the “Recycling Center”, located between Cozy Cabin and the town of La Pointe. You will see hours posted outside of the center and the very nice men who run it are happy to help direct you once you’re there. Also, kids love it!
*We run this from the Twin Cities and you are our eyes and ears for anything that needs attention. We strive to make things perfect for you, but we also ask that you are flexible guests who can let us know when something needs attention and we will occasionally ask for your participation in remedying things.
*While there is property access to the lake, there is no view of the lake from the cabin. The Cozy Cabin is nestled in the woods.
* We love our furry friends and understand how special it can be to vacation with them. We just ask to approve the pets in advance, but we do not require an extra deposit.
*Our L-shaped dock is no longer L-shaped as seen in the photos. Along with the majority of dock owners on the island, half of our dock was destroyed in the fall of 2017. We have been advised not to rebuild it until we can figure out what the mighty Lake Superior is doing over the next few years. You will still be able to experience amazing sunsets and beach fun!
We want to make sure your stay is excellent and we are open to any and all feedback & requests. We would love to have you as our guests at Cozy Cabin!
