Children will love paddling and swimming in the warm waters of Kangaroo Lake catching minnows right off the dock in front of the cottage.

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.

Relaxing Kangaroo Lake retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 (with two kids ages 8 and 11), stayed here in July 2016. The cottage is clean and beautiful. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, which surprised me since the description only says 1 bath. The lake is lovely and the location is perfect for seeing all of Door County -- nothing is far. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and kayaking in the lake. Although small, the cottage has all the amenities you could want with the exception of air conditioning. We happened to be there on 2 of the hottest and most humid days and nights of the year. We spent those hot days away from the cottage or in the lake, but at night it was so hot that it was difficult to sleep (and the only reason for my 4 star review). However, I would not hesitate to stay here again during a cooler season. The neighbors were friendly, and we were surprised to find an area for our kids to run around and play catch.

Enchanting Kangaroo Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family & I spent the month of July 2015 at this cottage. We enjoyed all the dragonflies and seeing the milky way on clear nights. It's beautifully situated along Kangaroo Lake. Decor and finishings are lovely. Carraig Cottages has raised the bar with their clean and modernized rentals. We also stayed at Carraig Dale in Baileys Harbor. We loved both cottages. 8 year old son and 10 year old daughter enjoyed exploring the shallow lake. I really appreciated having a dishwasher and washer/dryer. We enjoyed the cottage's close proximity to Coyote Roadhouse and downtown Baileys Harbor. It was hard to leave the lovely setting & head home, but we have many beautiful summer memories.

Cute cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Nothing beats being able to sit on the lawn and enjoying the sunset in privacy. The cottage is close enough to anything in Door County, yet provides quiet time away from resort like hustle. Nicely remodeled too. Our daughter (7 years old) enjoyed walking on the boat deck and "fishing" nearby. The restaurant within walking distance makes the cottage even more attractive.

Wonderful lake views in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Carraigeen Cottage is located on beautiful Kangaroo Lake. The water temperature was perfect for swimming and other water activities. While my husband and I were there, the temperatures were in the high 80s, so time in the lake offered a nice break from the heat.

The cottage is conveniently located near Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor. It is nicely decorated. We were very comfortable there. I would have rated our stay excellent if it hadn't been for the very high temperatures. The cottage does not have air conditioning, which normally isn't needed in Door County, but it would have been nice to have for this one unusually hot week. Thankfully the cabin is nestled among many mature trees, so their shade offered a lot of relief from the heat.

Martina is great! Her informational emails gave us wonderful insights into the area.

Relaxing in Door

  • 4 of 5

My son and I rented the cottage for 3 weeks. It is beautifully decorated, but rather small, about the size of a hotel room.The beds were very comfortable and it was very clean. I would recommend it for a weekend stay or no longer than a week for more than 1 person. We have been visiting Door County for over 20 years and this was our first stay on Kangaroo Lake. The water is steps away from the cottage and is warm and shallow. The owners are very nice and informative. We did have some friends visit for several days and used a blow-up mattress for the extra people. My intention was to cook most of the time, but the size of the kitchen area was prohibitive, so we did end up eating out alot.There is also a large gas grill that is available for guests to use. Some of the places we like to eat are: Coyote Roadhouse (just across the causeway), Cornerstone Pub (Bailey's Harbor), Julie's (Fish Creek), and The Mill (Sturgeon Bay). We play mini golf, visit winerys and always go to the drive-in movie. We rented kayaks during our stay and had them delivered. Relaxing is our main pastime. Carriageen Cottage is a perfect place to kick back and read, swim, or do nothing at all. I would recommend staying here for a couples or girlfriends weekend or if you want to get away all by yourself!

Autumn at Kangaroo Lake

  • 5 of 5

Carraigeen Cottage was a delight; compact, well equipped ,very clean and furnished to a high standard. It was great to be so close to the lake and wildlife.

Making the reservation and paying was simple, considering that we were doing this from the UK. Martina always returned e-mails promptly and was available on the phone.

We would definitely recommend this property.Door County is beautiful, we enjoyed it immensely, but it was nice to know that we could get away from the 'crowds' back to our little hideaway.We loved to walk across the causeway to Coyote Roadhouse in the evening and the weather for the week was amazing! Thanks Martina for sharing this little gem.
