Peace and proximity

  • 5 of 5

The charm of this property cannot be overrated. The landscape was so well cared for, yet not at all fussy. The ferns just becomes you to relax. He house itself is wonderfully quirky, following no modern day typical floor plan. Knowing the mosquito possibilities in Door Co, the screened porches, including the screened " hallways" we're genius! Walking out to the shoreline, watching the beginning or end of the day is a blood pressure reducer. The house is clean, charmingly and well furnished. Having the laundry facility there was a great boon. The kitchen is small, but it works. And there are two big tables to accommodate meals. When you are there, you could truly forget the rest of he world! However, all this comes with the bonus of being within Door County and access to all it offers. The owners were also wonderful to work with. We are hoping to make this a tradition.

This is a rustic cottage that is everything a cottage should be!

  • 4 of 5

Great week at a rustic Door County cottage which reminds me of the way Door County used to be. Enjoyed morning coffee in the gazebo, grilled dinners in the screen porch, watching the moonrise over the lake while sitting at a campfire. All is right with the world when you are here with family. The dock worked fine for our 18 foot boat and the sandbar just off the point was fun for frisbee and other shallow water games while the youngest could play on the inner tube.

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled that you found a perfect family retreat. We hope that like many families who come back year after year that the sunny days and even the rainy ones will be followed by a campfire by the water and memories will be made. Come back and see us again!

Lovely, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family of four and our dog. The screened in gazebo (huge), dining area, and sleeping porch (awesome) were all so great and relaxing places to chill out! The cabin was appointed with plenty of towels, sheets, etc. and had cute, thoughtful decor. It really felt comfy. The entire cabin was just perfect for us. The close access to the lake was perfect and the chairs, pier, and fire pit made enjoying the scenery easy. Being in close proximity of the towns was great and we loved the secluded nature of the cabin. It was really what we all needed and we had a lovely time!!! I, in particular, loved the sleeping porch and slept out there the entire stay! It was a real treat. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are so happy to allow guests to bring their dog with them. It is a wonderful spot to allow your dog some freedom and enjoy the family vacation with you. The screened porch and gazebo are such a bonus for people and the canine companion. There is nothing like sleeping under the stars, but the screened porch is as close as you can get and not share the outdoors with the critters!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin truly is one of Door County's hidden gems! There really is no need to leave the property since there is so much to do right outside the door on Kangaroo Lake- swimming, canoeing, biking, cooking out, etc. It is nice that the cabin is centrally located-it was quick and easy to tour the peninsula all week! My family and I have stayed at this cabin three times in total (twice in the fall-gorgeous leaves-and once in the summer). Each time we visit, we are never disappointed! The cabin has ample space for lodging our family of 6. We love to relax and spend time in the spacious screened in patio and gazebo (keeps all the mosquitoes out)! A few of us even enjoyed falling asleep to the sounds of nature on the screened in balcony!

The land and lake views here can't be beat! We loved canoeing around Kangaroo Lake with the canoe provided by the owners! In the evening, it was nice to relax around the fire and gaze at the stars from the dock.

Everything you need is provided at this cabin. From sheets and towels to cooking equipment, we loved not having to worry about bringing supplies. The Brewers fans in our group enjoyed the flat screen TV and DirectTV package-they didn't have to miss a game all week!

One of the best parts of staying here is the pet friendly aspect. We were able to bring our dogs and not have to worry about leaving them behind on vacation!

The owners of the cabin communicate well and provide all the necessities needed for a nice vacation! The cabin has a binder full of information one might find beneficial during a stay.

I can't say enough great things about this family and I will surely continue to rent this property in the future!

Loved this cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This log cabin on Kangaroo Lake is PERFECT!!! We spent the week there, and everything was absolutely spot on wonderful.

Yes, the kitchen is small, but it didn't had everything we needed to cook wonderful, full meals, and the screened in dining room and gazebo worked out beautifully.

This house has so much charm, and we loved its unique layout. And right on the water? It was just what we needed!

The outside areas are the amazing! There's a canoe and rowboat, and those provided hours of fun for our teenaged boys. Plus the fire pit!

When we did have a question or need, the owners were super quick to respond. They are a lovely couple that care about their cabin and your stay there.

Our stay was great, through and through, and the house was perfect for us! Highly recommended!

Baileys Harbor

Kangaroo Lake is uniquely situated just 5-10 minutes from so many Door County restaurants, beaches, wineries, breweries, golf courses, shops, state parks, marinas, etc. That you can escape from the tourists but jump right back into it if the serenity of Kangaroo ever grows old.

We love getting organic local produce and meat at Waseda Farms, just down the road. We love Stones Throw Winery, Coyotte Roadhouse, PCI Junction choo choo train restaurant, and the Pen Pub, a short bike ride or long walk from the cabin. Within 5 minute drive or bike is the town of Baileys...not to miss Maxwelton Braes fabulous 18 hole golf course, tennis and Pickleball courts, Pasta Vino Italian restaurant and the best breakfast in Door County at the Sandpiper at Maxwelton Braes, a fabulous, marina, Baileys Harbor beach, The Ridges Sanctuary, Cornerstone Pub and Grill...fabulous perch, the Baileys Harbor Fish Market, Chives restaurant and don't miss The Door County Brewery with amazing beer, live music and cribbage tournaments. We are just 10-15 minutes from Penninsula Players Theater and the Door County Auditorium, which is hosting The Charlie Daniels Band, Melissa Ethridge, Lyle Lovett all this 2015 season! There is so much to do...once you become our guest we will send you our list of more favorite spots in Door County
