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

We had one of the off-lake condos whose owner has it rented by the resort. We had several extended-family adults and no small kids, there for a wedding. The condo was clean. Had a spiral-stair to loft. Full kitchen. Two baths, but the better-equipped was entered only through one of the bedrooms. The other was very short on towel racks.... More

What a pleasure! I had not anticipated we would stay on the island, but am so glad we did. The welcome and service we received for our one night stay was remarkable. Thank you very much. The winter price was reasonable and the experience of driving the ice road unforgettable. The room was huge and welcoming. We were so comfy... More

Beautiful location right in the water. Very nice rooms with fridge, microwave, separate shower tub, nice fireplace. The ferry was a bit pricey. The place needed a good cleaning, mildew in the shower, cob webs on the light fixtures, and air vents very dirty. Stayed on a Monday and going into the off season, food selection at the grocery stores... More

In September, to celebrate our 20th anniversary, my hubby and I spent two nites in room 405 of the Inn on Madeline Island's Lightkeeper building. The deck and comfy chairs were our place to rest after a busy day at Bayfield. The Lake is gorgeous. Our suite was gorgeous, the bed extremely nice, the linens soft and the hottub great.... More

We stayed in 405, in the Lightkeepers buidling. A great room overlooking the water. Had agreat meal at the pub. Unfortuneatly, can't recommend visiting madeline island. Not much to do. I would stay in bayfield, take the ferry with my car to madeline island for one day at the most.

Pros are below. Cons are printed first. All cons are fixable, and if they were fixed, it would make this place pretty nice. Albeit a bit expensive still. Importantly, only rent the "A" units. On the website it says that all units have a full kitchen... but "C" units do not. They are attached to the "B" units ("B" and... More

My friends and I stayed at one of the rentals managed by the Inn at Madeline Island. After going into the rental and discovering a burnt rubber smell, we complained to management. They offered us a different rental at a higher rate. When we didn't want to take that offer, they gave us a half used candle and a lighter.... More

I will keep this short. Stayed here the last weekend of June. The condo unit smelled of nasty burnt rubber. When I inquired about switching units I was asked to pay more for the upgrade. I declined and was sent back to the rental with a half burnt candle. After checkout when talking to the manager I was told the... More

We stayed in the condos next to the Pub and have stayed there one before. Great location, great amenities and the Pub restaurant can't be beat. My only complaint is how hard it is to get a reservation and the nightly cost. You might as well be staying in downtown Chicago at the Four Seasons for the price but everything... More
