About the property

Beautiful Cabin on Kangaroo Lake In Door County w/Dock, 4 Bdrm, 2.5 Bath

Come enjoy our recently renovated 1,500 sq. ft. lake house on Kangaroo Lake. This home maintains its original 1940's cottage charm with the classic Door County stone fireplace, cedar walls, and wood floors. The house comfortably accommodates 8-12 guests with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The dining room has a lakeside view and seating for 12. There is plenty of space for outdoor dining, lawn games, and relaxing. *Satellite TV and WiFi provided*.

The first floor master bedroom has a queen size bed, its own private bathroom and a patio facing the lake. The upstairs has 3 bedrooms and another full bathroom. The first bedroom has 2 twin beds, the second bedroom has a full bed, and the large third bedroom which faces the lake has a queen size bed and full futon. There is also a queen size sofa bed in the living room and a half bathroom on the first floor.

Kangaroo Lake is an 1,156 acre, spring-fed lake with a maximum depth of 12 feet. Catch fish from the dock, causeway or one of the boats provided (canoe, kayak, paddle board, and fishing boat). The lake's sandy bottom is ideal for wading and playing in the water. The water temperature is nice and warm around 15 degrees warmer than Lake Michigan.

The lake house is just minutes away from a golf course, restaurants, shops, and entertainment. There is much to do in Door County, but you may be content to spend the day at the lake house, playing in the water, boating, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, or just relaxing. At the end of the day enjoy watching the sun set over the lake or sitting by the campfire.

This place is great for families with small children as we do provide pack'n play, stroller, and high chair for your convenience.

The lake house books quickly. Contact us today to reserve your lakeside vacation.

What makes this cottage unique

Everything a family needs!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults, a toddler and newborn stayed here for a week in early June. The house was sparkling clean and attractively furnished, and has a roomy kitchen stocked with everything you need if you want to cook there, including salt, pepper, a full spice rack, etc. In fact, I'd check in to the house before getting groceries & essentials, because there's more there than you'd expect. Newer appliances all work fine. No dishwasher, but we used paper plates most of the time. Plenty of hot water for everyone to shower. The wi-fi was great. We really enjoyed the big table on the screened porch so we could all eat or play cards together. The toddler loved the backyard and all the toys and flotation devices for kids. (Little ones must be supervised 100% when in the yard of course, due to Hwy E adjoining the lot and the lake access.) The sunset views and all the boats/kayak/canoe were a big plus. The fishermen/women in our group went out 3 or 4 times, but saw no pan fish in Kangaroo Lake, so maybe this isn't a fishing destination, but otherwise, this is a great property for a family vacation. The owners are quick to respond to any questions and to remedy any concerns you might have.

Our lovely stay at Kangaroo Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, spacious vacation cabin, right on Kangaroo Lake. We enjoyed staying in a quiet getaway, yet being centrally close to all the Door County sights and activities ... basically a 10 - 15 minute drive to Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Ellison Bay, and all the tourist attractions. It was nice to be out of the hub-bub though, and just a stones throw away from central Bailey's Harbor. The owners were very responsive and supportive of our needs, and responded quickly to any requests or questions. It was also very nice to have a washer and dryer on site. The cabin is well stocked with everything we needed to cook and prepare meals. We equally enjoyed eating out at the great restaurants in the area, and also sharing nice home cooked meals with a beautiful lake view from the dining room window. The only item that would have been a good addition to the cabin would have been a dishwasher, but that's a small draw-back to all the benefits we experienced, and memories made at this beautiful vacation home. Thanks to Ryan and Maureen Sundeen for making this available to us, and helping us make some beautiful memories to cherish. Arter Family, Peru, IL

Cabin on Kangaroo Lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second stay at this lovely cabin. The accommodations are spacious and well maintained. The kitchen is well-stocked with appliances, tableware, spices and more. Even tho we bring our own food, of course, the extras add a special "homey" touch.

We have already made reservations for 2018!

Great house! Lots to offer! Very thoughtful owners!

  • 4 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Sundeen's cabin. The house was clean, well decorated, and included many thoughtful touches. Our group (4 adults, 3 kids (8y, 6y, and 1y)) easily had plenty of space between the 4 bedrooms. We originally anticipated 2 more adults with us, and even then, the accommodations would have fit our needs well. The kitchen came well stocked with pots/pans/utensils and a variety of basic spices. We appreciated the large table to eat at, and it had beautiful views of the lake, too. All of the appliances are newer and worked well. We also used the charcoal grill and the fire pit. We were very happy to find the skewers to roast marshmallows for smores--great little details like this made our stay so enjoyable!

The lake was easily accessible by using the stone steps to get in, and it was shallow enough for the 6 and 8 year old to play by themselves while we sat in the Adirondack chairs and relaxed. The water in Kangaroo Lake was remarkably warmer than Lake Michigan. Even in the early morning or when the evenings cooled off to the 70s, we were able to be in the water comfortably because of how warm the water is. Everyone enjoyed the paddle board, kayak, canoe, and fishing boat. There were a variety of life vests available for kids and adults. It was very impressive to have so many things included at the cabin.

We were also highly impressed with the thoughtfulness put into things for the kids. The Sundeens provided baby gates for the stairs, toys, books, crayons/coloring books, Pack n Play, life vests, etc. It made our stay very easy and greatly lessened what we had to bring with us.

While the house is the 1st house off of the road, it wasn't particularly busy, and it wouldn't deter me from renting again. I was a little surprised by how close the neighbors were, but it was never an issue.

The only reason for 4/5 stars was the lack of A/C. For my family of four, it wouldn't prevent us from renting again, but it was a little difficult with the 1 year old. Because she went to bed early, it wasn't always easy to cool off the upstairs rooms (even with the house fan and box fans) in the early evening. It did get into the 60s most nights, but that didn't usually happen until later on in the evening.

All in all, it was a wonderful vacation, and if we vacation as a group again, we would happily rent here again!
