Madeline Island Praised Again by the Chicago Tribune

Madeline Island Praised Again by the Chicago Tribune

 

The Chicago Tribune Travel Section has again lavished praise on Madeline Island, in a "Top Ten" online article entitled "Most Secret Islands on the Globe".

I'm not at all certain that Madeline Island is a secret anymore, at least not to Minnesotans and Wisconsinites, but the PR value of this feature article is much appreciated! 

Madeline Island made the top of this impressive list, which included islands in the Bahamas, Brazil, Thailand, Scotland, France, Malaysia, Micronesia, British Columbia and Virginia.

The article mentions "the lovely but sleepy lagoon at Big Bay Town Park" and includes a photo of the lagoon view from the bridge connecting the park entrance with the exquisite sand beach

A virtually identical article appeared in the November 13, 2011 online edition of Smarter Travel, written by Jamie Moore.

Eric, I am sure that part of the reason that Madeline Island gets praise... is the wonderful support and promotion you have given it over the years in your positiohn as Madeline Island's Premier Realtor.  It's just... "the place to be."

Have we finally found out where the famous Michael Moore lives?  Sorry, just kidding - what a beautiful place.

Ruthmarie, I think it's probably very slow almost everywhere at this time of year! 

I had a showing request on the Island yesterday.  I like to think that the Chicago Tribune article helped in some way to make the phone ring.

David - No sign of Michael Moore on the Island to my knowledge.  I haven't seen Waldo there either (grin).

Eric, maybe this year, when the "ice roads" are stable enough, you could take a video cam and mount it on one of those ice vehicles, and give us an exciting video of that it's like rumbling from the mainland over to Madeline Island.

By the way... just wondering.  Are there any La Madeleine restaurants on Madeline Island.  I really enjoy the food there.  Ever been to one ?

Karen Anne - There's a part of me that might prefer to stay off the ice this year (grin).  But I'll probably wind up driving the ice road at least once this coming winter.

We don't have a "La Madeleine" restaurant.  One of my listings (a bed & breakfast inn) used to be called "Chateau Madeline" some years ago.

Maybe they'd be interested in starting a franchise on our little island..
