    Exceptional Home In Tranquil Door County Setting

    Romantic vacation home in Baileys Harbor
    Hi. I am Martina at Door County Stay. I am the owner and day to day manager of Door County Stay, a local company that offers five high quality, five star rated, vacation rental homes in the Baileys Harbor Area of Door County. All my properties are listed here on VRBO. **Please note that during our high season we only rent from Friday to Friday in increments of seven days. On occasion and at short notice we may make available shorter 2-3 day terms during the high season****Our cancellation policy is that we will give you back 100% of money paid for time that can be re-rented less a fee*****The lodging tax for Door County is 11%. This is 5.5% to the State of Wisconsin and 5.5% to the Door County Tourism Zone Commission. As of June 1 2019, VRBO will collect the Wisconsin portion of the tax only. We must collect the DCTZ Tax in a separate transaction after you book. This NOT a new tax***Nestled in a beautiful, tranquil area just minutes outside Baileys Harbor, Carraig Dale Cottage is a totally refurbished 1200 sq. ft. home in Door County. No expense was spared in the re birthing of this gem that comfortably sleeps eight in three bedrooms, with two full bathrooms. The central main living area, with its beautiful vaulted ceiling, consists of a spacious living room and a fully functional, modern and equipped kitchen, complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is a brand new Samsung washer and dryer. There is filter water.Through the sliding French doors from the kitchen, you can walk out onto our large sun drenched 700 square foot deck that has a BBQ and ample furnishings for you and your family. Sitting on this deck for sunset is a must, designed for you completely relax and enjoy. There are speakers that can be controlled from the house sound system. Carraig Dale sits on a beautiful lawn that is at least two acres in size, more than enough room to enjoy many outdoor activities. Please do not hesitate to bring your boats or jet skis. There is more than enough parking space for all your toys.The interior of the house was tastefully decorated. There are two plush couches, one a queen size sleeper, and an oversized chair in the living room. There is a TV with DVD and a sound system. The receiver is Bluetooth capable so you can stream in your own music. Free WI-FI is also provided. There is no cable or dish TV service but you can access Netflix and similar services with your subscription. There are three bedrooms, one with its own full bathroom with tub/shower.Carraig Dale was decorated with intention. We may well have spent more time deliberating and working on color palates and natural light penetration than on any other facet of this remarkable home. When you walk in the door you will be infused with peace and tranquility. This is not random or accidental. We understand that you are on vacation, that you need to distress and spend quality time with your loved ones. We have set the stage – the rest will be easy.Carraig Dale is a new home. We understand that you may have a little apprehension renting a home that has just come online. But please take comfort in the fact that this is what we do, and we do it right. Our flagship home, Carraig Mór Cottage, is the most reviewed home in Door County on VRBO with 60 plus five star reviews. We take pride in serving you and this shows through in the quality of our homes. A testament to this is the fact that we have rented several weeks before completion – we had no website and no pictures! Our guests, past and present, believe and trust us to deliver, and we do.Please read our terms and conditions. You must agree with them before you can book.----------------------------------------------------------------------Regarding Rates and Terms and ConditionsI own and personally manage five properties that are all listed on VRBO.

    2/5 Poor

    !hidden costs beware!
    The property was extremely clean and tidy! Well maintained and up to date. Unfortunately there are hidden charges including the need to bring your own sheets and towels or an additional charged to you. And no coffee provided. Also the hefty security deposit is held for an additional two weeks after our stay ended.

    4/5 Good

    Great, quiet, central location!
    Our stay at Carraig Dale Cottage was very nice. The property is centrally located and was only a short drive to any of the towns we hoped to visit. The outdoor space was lovely, though we didn't use it much, given the cold weather. There were only two negatives to the property: 1) a slight odor in the double/double bedroom and bathroom that we could not identify but was definitely noticeable, and 2) the technology was rather challenging. The wifi signal was weak, the TV/Roku instructions weren't very clear, etc. Not a big deal for many people but would be challenging to try to work while there or entertain kids.

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful country cottage.
    My husband and I, along with our 2 senior dogs, spent 3 nights at this lovely cottage. We really liked the quiet, country setting. Check in was super easy, and Martina contacted us the day before with all the details. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. Kitchen was fully stocked (except for paper towel). The "welcome" bottle of wine was a nice surprise upon arrival. The beds and sofas were clean and very comfy. The washer/dryer are nice (just bring your own laundry soap). The bathrooms were clean, no problem with hot water or water pressure. We had a great time and I'd definately book this cottage again !! Only downside was no satelite TV (if you have kids and the weather is crappy). This was not a big deal for us, we used Netflix one night when it rained. Also, there was a faint odor in the bedroom with 2 beds. Not sure if it was coming from the attached laundry room or the mound septic system with all the rain we had gotten prior to our visit. Not horrible, but something was causing a slight smell and we couldnt figure out from where. Since we slept in another bedroom, we only noticed it when doing a load of laundry. Again, no huge deal for us but maybe something that could be looked into. Those little things aside, I still give this rental 5 stars !!! Thanks Martina for letting us stay at your beautiful home, we had an awesome time !!

    5/5 Excellent

    Short stay but worth it!
    Definitely room for 8. Property is very nice and not very far from surrounding towns. Would book again if heading to Door County.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great stay
    My family and I stayed and really enjoyed it! We brought our dogs too which we loved. The kitchen was well stocked...the beds were comfortable..and the bathrooms were great for a large family trip. We would definitely stay again! Highly recommend
