Description of Glamping Units

This beautiful property on Madeline Island offers a charming cabin that was built from century-old barn wood. Inside, glampers will find an aesthetically pleasing mixture of traditional American craftsmanship and beachy vibes with white-washed walls and stylish antique accents.

Inside the cabin, there are three bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living area, and a dining area.

The cabin can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. There is a queen-size bed, a full bed, a twin bed, and a twin loft above. The cozy lofts feature feather down bed covers, and the master bedroom has a balcony. There is also a front porch with a swing by a sprouting pond, as well as a fire pit.

Guests should know the steps to the loft are steep, but there is a bedroom downstairs for small children or elderly if necessary. There is a gate to keep children off of the stairs, and there’s also a big pillow for safety at the bottom.

The cabin’s full bathroom is equipped with an antique claw-foot bathtub and sink, a toilet, and a combination tub/shower. There is also an outdoor shower.

The kitchen is equipped with a coffee maker, utensils, dishes, a dishwasher, a microwave, an oven, a fridge, a stove, and a toaster.

The downstairs part of the cabin, including the downstairs bedroom, is wheelchair accessible.

Please keep in mind this cabin was built using passive solar construction, which means it uses natural convection between rooms to heat and cool the entire cabin. This means that while all of the rooms are separated by walls, there is not total sound privacy. Additionally, the upper lofts are not sound-proof. The cabin’s in-floor radiant heat is set at 50 degrees, and it heats up slowly. For a quicker source of heat, glampers should use the wood stove. Read More
