Name: Madeline Island House Tour
Date: July 22, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
The popular Madeline Island Tour returns this summer on Saturday, July 22 with six houses showcasing the work of local craftsmen.

Island House, Virginia and Henry Liop's place on Middle Road and South Shore Road, was just extensively renovated by Troy Nelson. Lake Effect Builders added a second floor to Judy and Pat Sebranek's cottage on Capser Road and Gene Nelson built a garage and studio. Elmer Nelson built the hourse on North Shore Road that Susi Saxi and Robert Kramer have enjoyed since 1994. (It features a delightful wall of taxidermy.)

The three other hourses also offer unusual designs. Betsy and Jim Newton's daughter, architect Laura Nash Campbell, designed "Pink Bear", the cottage they built in 2002 off South Shore Road. Ned and Carol Hancock chose a TimberPeg Post-and-beam structure when they built thier New England-style house on Islewood in 1999. The Pries guest house built by Arvid Kron in 1974 is an, "upsided-down house", with bedrooms on the first floor and living space on the second floor to capture the panoramic view of the Michigan shore.

The bi-annual tour, which runs from noon to 4 p.m., benefits the work of the Madeline Island Historic Preservation Association, which runs the Madeline Island Heritage Center, and recently commissioned the stunning mural by Holly Turandot that can be seen from Rice Street. Tickets which are $25.00, will be available at the Chamber of Commerce office and local businesses prior to the event, or can be purchased at any of the houses during the tour. A map will be available at the Madeline Island Chamber office.
