Madeline Island Cottage

Designed by Michaela Mahady
with Maury Stenerson and Jessica Wilder

From the wraparound porch of this colorful cottage, one can survey the sun setting over Lake Superior. The home was inspired by the North Shore dwellings of architect Edwin Lundie, employing post-and-beam construction and hand-hewn details. An enormous fireplace of Chilton stone anchors the building to its site.
