About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Carraig Mor is the flagship property of the Carraig Cottages Suite of Homes. Just a few steps up Bluff Road from Route 57, Carraig Mor majestically sits underneath a beautiful rock bluff that runs the length of the garden. We will get back to the garden later – it deserves a chapter all to itself! In the last couple of years we completely renovated Carraig Mor from a dated old house to a two story, three bedroom, two and a half bathroom home. Carraig More has a fantastic wrap around covered porch where you can eat, read or just relax while looking down the garden.

Carraig Mor is a stand out property in Door County. We have over 60 reviews verified reviews and it is by and far one of the most reviewed of any property in Door County. Just to compare with our competitors, the Carraig Mor reviews that you read about all come directly from our guests – they are not entered by us or any other third parties. This is further testament to the service and hospitality we provide. Our homes are not your grandfather’s cabin!

Carraig Mor has three bedrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom has a queen bed with its own bathroom with shower. The other two bedrooms have a double and a single bed in each and shares the other full bath that is upstairs. All bedrooms have ample closet space. All beds have covers and pillows. Since most people that visit Carraig Mor are relatively local, they prefer to bring their own linens and towels. For this reason we do not usually provide the service, but if you are coming from further afield, please ask and we can make arrangements for you.

Downstairs there is a half bathroom with a full size washer and dryer. There are two separate living rooms, one that has a wood burning fireplace. There is a sound system whereby you can play music throughout the house and on the deck and patio deck outside. We reluctantly decided to add a TV and DVD player, but there is no TV Service. Several guests have been wary about staying at our home for this reason alone. I will assure you that your decision to stay will be a good one. Previous Guests that were hesitant overwhelmingly report back that they had so much more fun with their kids and grandkids – playing with the many board games we have here. Many say it has been years since they have had meaningful conversations with their kids and are very appreciative of this.

The kitchen is a top class kitchen with granite counter tops  and stainless steel appliances. There is a stove, fridge, cooktop, coffee pot, all the plates, pots, cups, pans and glasses you will need. The kitchen is supplied with everything you need. On rare occasions a guest will tell us of something that is missing and we will replace as soon as possible. There is also a large BBQ outside on the patio. Should you run out of gas just bring the tank down to the gas station in town and they will swap it out for a full one. We will reimburse you for the cost of the gas.

Outside there is what can be only described as an acre of botanical like gardens that runs from the house down along the bluff. There is a nice lawn area that has a beautiful maple tree from which we have, what is often referred to, as an “awesome” tire swing that the kids spend hours playing on. The garden is home to hundreds of varieties of flowers and hostas, some quite rare. This goes the same for the evergreens. You will see some very odd ones there. To help maintain the integrity of the garden we please ask that you do not pick any of the flowers and stay on the grass or paths. This garden was built over a forty year period by the late Mrs. Emily Hickey. She was an Master Gardener and we are going to try to keep the garden alive and well in her memory. Our current Gardener, Peter, spends many hours a week toiling away. Should you be fortunate enough to see him there please say hello to him. I guarantee you will have an interesting conversation!

Carraig Mor is situated right in the middle of Baileys Harbor. You can walk to everything – bars, restaurants, shops, marina, library (you can borrow DVD’s), beach and everything else the village has to offer.

Please make sure that you read our terms and conditions that are posted on our companies website. You must sign an agreement to rent Carraig Mor.

Thank You very much for your interest in our property and I hope that I can host you in the near future.

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Baileys Harbor, WI, USA:
About 7 years ago a friend of ours invited us to spend a weekend with them at their cabin in Door Country. We had never been to Door County before. We fell in love with the area immediately. The Door County peninsula is surrounded by natural beauty. There is so much to do - hike, walk, bicycle, bird watch, fish, and hunt. The list is endless. It is a great place to spend time with family. I love the fact that there are basically no franchises north of Sturgeon Bay. It is all Mom and Pop businesses. It is great to go out at night for a home style meal rather than the fast food we are surrounded with these days. The people are also very nice.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The garden at Carraig Mór is truly amazing. It is practically a mini botanical garden. You can see many pictures of it on this website. You must also read the guest reviews. Our reviews are left on this site are left by our guests directly and not posted by us. As our guests say, the pictures do not do it justice. We have also made a substantial investment in the house - in fact you are not staying at a house - you are staying at a home and this you can feel as soon as you walk through the front door.
