Ben's Cabin on Madeline Island owners Ben Ryder and Jim Ryder ripped my wife and I off on our honeymoon.

I found the Ben's Cabin website through the Madeline Island Chamber of Commerce site. I'm very disappointed in the Madeline Island Chamber of Commerce for keeping his site up after his first offense.

We prepaid Ben $525 to stay in the cabin in the middle of August. He did not provide lodging, in fact we could not get a hold of him. After having driven from Duluth, we had to find another place to stay. We ended up spending another $695 to stay in a different cabin.

I drove to the cabin and found another couple staying there and it turns out they checked in the afternoon we were supposed to check in.

The couple informed me they had just met Ben the day the checked in. Ben told them the cabin was vacant and he would let them stay there for half price.

We've filed a report with the police and come to find out this same thing has happened to others before us and another couple after us.

Buyer beware - DO NOT give these thieves your money.
