Madeline Island Vacations Welcomes You!
A Unique Blend of Nature & Culture
Madeline Island truly is about getting in touch with nature. We are a relaxed community... once you board the Ferry in Bayfield you are "On Island Time"! Take time to unwind, decompress and leave your cares on the mainland. You will notice that even though there are cars on Madeline Island we have no stoplights! This is part of the charm; and, we hope it stays that way forever! Come and visit; this could by your plans for a late day in June: Wake up in the morning, have a cup off coffee in town... next find yourself taking a two hour hike on the Board Walk connecting our beautiful Town and State Parks... that evening enjoy a locally produced meal at Farmhouse... in the evening you find yourself overlooking the marina and Madeline Island Golf course listening to a string quartet concert sponsored by the Madeline Island Music Camp.
A unique blend of nature & culture.
