The property that is now known as Chez Madeline was originally built in the early 1900's as a loggers barrack. It was then purchased by Dr. and Mrs. Alexander as a summer home for their family and was ultimately bought by Stuart W. Campbell as a retreat and base for his love of sailing. Stuart is known for having taught many of the sailors racing the waters around Madeline Island today. His passion for art and his amazing craftsmanship left a lasting impression on the community of La Pointe.
The house itself served a more important purpose. It was a family home, allowing the children and grandchildren of the Campbell clan to spend summers together. It is with this in mind that the family hopes to be able to share these exceptional experiences with other families. From the beautiful old cabin to the large private beach, there are few properties on the island that offer the same amenities and privacy while still being within five minutes of downtown La Pointe.
We hope you will consider us when planning your stay on Madeline Island. The property is available for rent as a private estate or as individual buildings all offering a unique and comfortable experience.
The Main House features five bedrooms including a luxurious master suite and two and a half baths. It has two large living areas, a gourmet kitchen and beautiful river rock fireplace
The Artist's Loft is one large area looking out onto the forest and the lake with a three quarter bath and hardwood floors.
The Wee Hoose is a quaint guest house that features two rooms and a full bath. It is directly above the lake and gives one the feeling of sleeping on the beach when the windows are open. It would make an excellent honeymoon suite.
