The Pub at The Inn on Madeline Island features gorgeous views of Lake Superior. Without a doubt, this coastal restaurant and inn is our pick for Lake Superior Magazine's Best of the Lake Awards, in the category "Best Place to Watch a Sunrise/Sunset".


Whether you've booked a room in the The Inn on Madeline Island or enjoying cocktails on the beachfront patio, walking along the docks or swimming laps in the lake-side pool, the view of Lake Superior is everywhere you turn. Situated on the southwest tip of the island, close to Grant's Point beaches and the ferry landing, the beautiful lighthouse-themed building is in the perfect location for viewing the sun set over the water.

A memorable setting for weddings, the Inn hosts many weddings each season, with ceremonies on the lawn overlooking the water and wedding parties in the Great Room in the Lightkeeper's Lodge. The spacious accommodations also work well for large group outings and family events.

The Pub and The Inn are delightful at any time at day, with delicious fare and a relaxing atmosphere; but sunset is when the Madeline Island "magic" happens. The sky's bright colors reflect across the lake waters, encouraging scenic strolls along the docks and a beautiful dining experience in the Pub.

Here are just a few sunset views from The Inn's backyard: we encourage previous guests to tag their own sunset photos on Facebook Twitter with the hashtag #bestofthelakebestsunset to encourage votes for this gorgeous Lake Superior destination!
