2nd time there. We stayed at one of the lakefront properties call the Wave Crest. Property was way bigger then we expected, spacious bedrooms each with private bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen, grill, screened porch, fireplace, outside kids play area. We're right off the beach, you over look the water and hear the waves lap on shore in the evening. By... More

The Inn on Madeleine Island is absolutely breathtaking. They're right off the beach, you over look the water and hear the waves lap on shore in the evening. The only hastle is getting there; the ferry isn't cheap and it's the only way to get your car over. The price fore some of the rooms is a bit high, but... More

We stayed at one of the lakefront properties call the Mary Anne. Overall I was somewhat disappointed with it. They advertise having satellite yet there was 3 channels and that's it! Local was blacked out, then 30 infomercial channels and 3 actual channels. The DVD they provide also cannot be hooked up as the wrong cable are provided and who... More

This is a stunning island - not nearly as upscale as the Bayfield side of the ferry run, which I found a plus. I did not expect a 4-star hotel and it was not - although we had lovely high ceilings and a comfortable bed. What earned the 2 stars? The paper-thin walls combined with an old fashioned beeping alarm... More

The Inn appreciates all comments and takes all suggestions very seriously. We want to clarify the Lakeside Condominium rooms. An 'A" unit is a two bedroom condominium. A 'B' unit is a one bedroom condominium. Both one and two bedroom units have a lake view. Our guest, 2dkdkd, had a 'C" unit which is a standard hotel room with a... More

The Fairway Suites units are still under development, with one block of units completed and the other still under construction. Despite the name, the golf course view is distant through trees (and currently spoiled by mud and an abundance of cords/piping/mess from construction). The Inn on Madeline Island decided to go ahead and rent out the completed Fairway Suites units... More

Stayed here three nights with my wife. Had room 401 of light keepers. Bed was comfortable, room was spacious. Bathroom was large but toilet area was rather dark. We did not use the whirlpool, but did enjoy the multiple shower sprays. Staff was attentive to our questions, yet nothing special. Guess I expected them to be more outgoing welcoming us... More

We stayed two nights in a ground-floor room in the Lightkeeper's Lodge. The Lightkeeper's Lodge is a relatively new building with spacious rooms. We found the room and bathroom to be a bit dark. They had some sort of energy efficient light bulbs that took quite a while to fully warm up. The Inn is pretty much your only option... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 403 at the Lightkeeper's Lodge for one night. Very nice room with a hottub that could be opened up to the main room or closed off in the bathroom. The large shower in the bathroom was excellent with many shower heads! Balcony off the room on the 2nd floor with a table, four... More

We stayed here recently and hosted my daughter's wedding reception at the Inn on Madeline Island. Coordinating plans with the staff was easy. The setting was beautiful for pictures early evening. The wait staff was superb. We look forward to making another visit to Madeline Island!

We arrived at checking and was treated very poorly by an older women that had a hard time with English language . We were looking for a room upgrade. And she was quick to say. This is not Vages. Very unprofessional customer service. She should not be in this industry with her rudeness. My husband later came back to office... More
