    Fabulous New Two Bed, Two Bath Cottage On Kangaroo Lake

    Beachfront cottage in Baileys Harbor with kitchen
    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. **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***Carraigeen Cottage is a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage right on the shores of beautiful Kangaroo Lake. Fully remodeled in the Spring of 2015, it has a fully equipped modern kitchen with granite countertops, wood flooring, new stainless steel appliances, including a full sized dishwasher, full stove, large refrigerator, and new washer / dryer. It has 4 queen pillow top beds perfect for 1-2 families or a group of friends.Outside there is a BBQ and picnic style tables. There are several chairs. We have a spot for a boat at the dock. You are welcome to bring your own boat. You can launch it at the Baileys Harbor boat launch on Kangaroo Lake Road. There is a $5 launch fee and it is on the honor system. The collection box is at the launch.Kangaroo Lake is about 1,200 acres in size and is shallow. It is about eleven feet at its deepest. A shallow lake is a warm lake. One week of eighty degree weather and the lake becomes your personal heated swimming pool. The downside of a shallow lake is that you are limited to boat size. Smaller fishing boats (lees than 19ft), jet skis, jet boats, canoes and sail boats are perfect. At the back to the property there is ample place to park your trailers. We have just purchased two canoes that will be available for rent next season.Children will love paddling and swimming in the warm waters of Kangaroo Lake, catching minnows right off the dock in front of the cottage. The lake also holds a variety of larger fish like bass and pike. This is a great location for biking, hiking and close to all the downtown amenities of Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor. Shops, restaurants, galleries, cafes and the marina and beach are only a few minutes away.If you rent one of our other properties and would like to have access to Kangaroo Lake, why not consider renting Carraigeen as well? It is not a bad – several of our previous Guests have done this. It is worth considering.As with the rest of our properties we generally do not provide linens but please ask if there is anything we can do you make your stay more comfortable and memorable.Please read out 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.

    What a beautiful cottage!
    My family and I had an amazing time staying at this magical cottage for our week getaway. Martina was so great and easy to communicate with. The cottage was clean and charming. Nothing was better than being on the lake and being able to walk out the back door to the lake. We would definitely like to go back again and stay at the same cottage!

    5/5 Excellent

    Kangaroo Lake Cottage
    We had a wonderful stay at the cottage! The cottage itself was very clean and up to date and was the perfect size for my family of 4. The lake was so beautiful and calm. It’s perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming and fishing. The location was very ideal and close to lots of biking and hiking areas and restaurants. We would love to come back and stay longer!

    Superb Spotless Getaway Home
    This was the cleanest VRBO I've ever stayed in - there was not a speck of dirt anywhere and nothing was out of place, which was wonderful! It's a super cute little house that was perfect for our weekend stay in Door County. Also, it had the most dishes, pots & pans, etc in any house, condo, etc that I've stayed in, which is a major plus! (I had brought some of my own because typically there isn't much!) The only tips I would share are to remember to bring kitchen wash clothes, dish soap and towels. We knew to bring our own bedding and bath towels, but I missed the part where it said kitchen too - though it was stated in the check in info! AND make sure to bring your own coffee too -sometimes there's a canister left on site, but not in this case - again, not a big deal, just not something I thought of ahead of time. Overall, this was a perfect place!
