Madeline Island – Post 1

I’ve been trying to decide how to blog about our vacation.  One giant post or several small posts…. Hard to decide, but ultimately, I think several smaller posts would be better.  These aren’t necessarily in order of events that happened, but I’ll go with themed posts.

Anyways, we spent the last almost week at Madeline Island which is past northern Wisconsin in Lake Superior. 

You can either take a ferry over to the island or a plane.  We chose the ferry for, well, obvious reasons.   Today I will just leave you with some pictures of the island.  There will be stories in the days to come.  Eric and I are considering island life… 🙂

    My wife and I are considering taking a long weekend at the Apostles, kayaking and possibly camping from Madelaine Island. Do you have recommendations on where to stay on Madelaine? We’ll probably stay in a hotel or cabin for a night or two….Thanks, Joel

      Hi Joel-
      We stayed at the Brittany Cottages and they were quite lovely. We stayed in the Haven House. I would recommend getting the Burgundy Cottage if you can, it’s right on Lake Superior. The other cottages are not directly waterfront. My other biggest recommendation would be to get something on the water if you can or right off the water. The reason for that being there are GIANT mosquitos when you are in wooded areas and they seem to be not as bad by the water. Here’s a link to the cottages: Brittany Cottages Hope you have a lovely vacation!
