Welcome to Check Inn… your private retreat on Grant’s Point overlooking Long Island. From the moment you step across the Mexican tile of the kitchen and dining area and onto the maple floors of the living room, you will know this welcoming home has called you to the island.
The open floor plan, spacious bedrooms, screened porch and expansive deck/patio allow plenty of space for your family and guests to relax and take in the beauty that is Madeline Island. Step down to the sand beach and enjoy a private picnic or refresh in the waters of Superior. One hundred feet of lakeshore, a fire pit, outdoor grill and private dock are yours to delight in.
For the “chef” in your group, the kitchen features a Garland stove, beautiful corner windows and opens onto the dining room and living room with plenty of room for cocktails and dining. And, for the maestro, a Steinway grand piano will help provide for a musical evening.
Designed by SALA Architects of Minneapolis, this wonderful home was built by Ted Okonek, Mike North and William Tibble of La Pointe for the former curator of Folklife Programs at the Smithsonian Institution. Recently purchased, the new owners have refreshed Check Inn with a complete painting and re-carpeting. Check Inn will be your sanctuary… and, call you back for years to come.

This is a wonderful property for a large family group. We were very comfortable and the kitchen was great for those who love to cook. I loved the porch for both morning and afternoon quiet time. We loved the family spaces that were available in the home.

We LOVE working with the Madeline Island team.... always professional and helpful... everything is done with heart and love of the island.Property
Thank you so much for all the years of hosting our stay on the island. It is truly a special time that we look forward to all year long! The house and property is warm, inviting and so peaceful. We love that we can all be spread out through the house, on the porch or on the beach but still feel like we are all still together. Thank you kindly for sharing your space and home!

We checked in at 3 pm as stated in email, however, crews were still cleaning. The cleaning staff was very accommodating - let us put our groceries in the refrig, and then we did other things for an hour to let them finish. We were looking forward to having our first bootleg at the Pub, so we were happy to take a little extra time.Property
I admire the attention to detail. The housekeeping staff folded the end of the toilet tissue - it's just a tiny thing, but an indication of the cleaning of the property. Impressive.

Ron is a pleasure. He helps both on the phone and in emails. He makes each trip a seamless transaction. The midweek housekeeping staff was friendly and helpful.Property
We love the Check Inn! The house is more lovely and accommodating each time we visit. The weather was not ideal this year, so we played games, did puzzles and had fires on the beach. We look forward to returning next year.

Check Inn is a beautiful and spacious lakefront property with plenty of room for multiple couples and children. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Love the team! Always a pleasure to work with... They take such good care of you and the island!Property
Where do you start! Love the layout of the house and property. It allows all of us to be in different places... whether in the kitchen, on the porch or at the beach and it still feels like we are together. But it also allows us to all be in the house together and still have room to spread out. And let's not forget the magic of the property... It's truly special. Thank you Madeline island!
