Meet Our Madeline Island Vacations Team Members

Welcome to Madeline Island Vacations!

Mike Rasmus and Dave Johnson Owners of Harbor's Edge Motel in Bayfield, Wisconsin started Madeline Island Vacations in 2008 when they made the decision of leaving the city (Minneapolis) and move to their vacation home on Madeline Island.  As summer residents and property owners since 1995 it was a natural extension to start their vacation rental company.  In 2008 the company began with 17 vacation rental properties and has continued to grow organically every year.  With the continued growth and success in 2012 long-time friend and trusted colleague Ron Madich joined the Madeline Island Vacations Team.  Today, we represents 37 home owners and over 50 unique properties. 

Owner's Mike Rasmus, Dave Johnson & Ron Madich have a combined 50 plus years in the motel, vacation and hospitality industry.  Madeline Island vacations started in 2008  with seventeen vacation rental homes, cottages and condos.  Today we have grown to over fifty properties; and, are very proud of our growth as an organization.    Madeline Island is a unique place, a small community that supports each other, we do not have any large corporate chains or franchises on the island!  We are very thankful for the trust and support of our homeowners who open up their homes to our guest traveler.  Without them none of this would be possible, so when you are visiting we do ask that you treat their home with the respect you would your own home.  

At Madeline Island Vacations we have a simple goal: To continue to build an ethical organization and support sustainable year-round employment.  Today seasonally, we employ between 15-20 people from the area; and, constantly strive to improve the vacation rental experience for our guests.
