Overview

About the property

Sleeps 6-10

Relax and enjoy your vacation at this newly remodeled home on your own private 2 acres and 200' of pristine Lake Michigan shoreline This Cape Cod style home has a coastal cottage feel with hardwood floors, painted woodwork, granite countertops and tall vaulted ceiling.

The exterior is all cedar including the large relaxing deck overlooking Lake Michigan. Majestic Cedars, Hemlocks, and Maples tower around the home.

The shoreline boasts a great view with shallow water making it great for kids.

You can take in the beautiful views from the large wrap around deck or stroll down to the water's edge where we have additional seating and table. Relax and enjoy your morning coffee with gorgeous sunrises. Then finish your day off with your favorite beverage and take in the reflective sunsets.

You can go for walks along the shoreline, skipping stones along the way or walk down the private drive viewing the abundant wild flowers and beautiful woods. Watch for various wildlife such as Deer, Turkey, Wood Chucks, Eagles, Swans, Pelicans and many more woodland creatures. Walk a little further and explore the Heins Creek Nature Preserve, with it's winding creek that flows between Kangaroo Lake and Lake Michigan.

You can enjoy gathering around the fire pit by the shoreline for roasting marshmallows and telling your favorite stories beneath the bright starry sky.

The location is perfect; not in the middle of the noisy busy part of the county, yet centrally located and close enough to get most places in under 10 minutes.

Enjoy the abundant recreation of Door County such as; winery tours, golf, kayaking, zip lining canopy tours, Cana Island light house tours, performing arts, galleries, world class salmon and walleye fishing, hiking, wind surfing, sailing, diving on shipwrecks, romantic sunsets, and ongoing festivals. There are also endless dining opportunities to experience.

A great place in Baileys Harbor to check out is Lake Shore Adventures. They have glass bottom kayak tours of ship wrecks, Salmon fishing charters, zip lining canopy tours at Ridges Sanctuary, and lots of rentals (kayaks, jet skis, bikes, pontoon boats). Their office is located in downtown Baileys Harbor and they have a great website.

You'll find yourself relaxed and very comfortable in this home away from home without breaking the bank. We also have a similar remodeled home between Baileys Harbor and Sister Bay with beautiful views of Cana Island. This home also has a 5 star rating, VRBO # 699521.

PLEASE READ RENTAL AGREEMENT.

About Chris

Our family recently purchased this beautiful property and had it remodeled with new wood floors, kitchen cabinets with granite tops, air conditioning, carpeting... and the list goes on. We fell in love with this location in Door County long ago and built our own home less than a mile from here.

Chris purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris chose Door County

We love this area of Door County with its pristine shorelines, mature trees and abundant wildlife. Door County resembles the Atlantic Coast of New England with its rugged limestone shorelines and bluffs.

This home is located away from all the noise and congestion of other areas yet is conveniently located to most activities of Door County in less than 10 minutes.

We love outdoor activities such as going to the beach, hiking endless trails, kayaking or paddle boarding by the light houses and bays, world class King Salmon, Small-mouth Bass and trophy Walleye fishing, golfing, awesome kiteboarding and its all right here without the noise and congestion of traffic.

There is also very fine dining in all of the towns in Door County wether you like steaks and seafood, Italian or a Friday fish fry.

Door County boasts several wineries as well as art and theatre entertainment. Every weekend there is a festival in one or more of the nearby towns. We find that one summer is not enough time to take it all in, but we love trying.

We are very excited to be able to offer such a great property for you to enjoy your vacation at and we care about your visit being memorable.

What makes this house unique

The open great room with many windows and views of the water make this home ideal. Step outside through the double doors onto the huge cedar deck and take in the beauty of the large trees and sounds of the waves on the shore.

Go for a long walk down the private drive that leads to this home and pick Thimble Berries or go further and explore the nature preserve at the end of the road.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay on the lake. Both of my siblings and their spouses visited us and we had a great time sitting on the deck and catching up. We had a bald eagle patrol the shore every day and saw the pelicans a few times as well. We also found a few Silurian corals in the rocks by the beach that are 400 million years old and still look like the ones in the Florida Keys.

Owner's Response: Glad you could find peace and comfort at our home. There are lots of fossils to be uncovered in Door County. I have found a few myself on this shoreline. It is a bird watchers paradise. Besides eagles, we've seen swans, loons, cormorants and almost every type of duck in this region. Thank you for your visit. Chris and Robin

Nice place for the Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. It was clean and stocked well. We had a group of 10, mostly adults and a couple teenage boys so we were a little tight on beds for the whole group. The view to the lake is beautiful and I really enjoyed the seating at the edge of property overlooking Lake Michigan.

On the day we arrived it had been raining , the deck was pretty slippery but otherwise everything was terriffic.

Lovely setting and home.

  • 4 of 5

A great space for families. Beautiful wooded area with country roads that lend themselves to walks/runs. Easy access to numerous activities. With additional care to kitchen cutlery, serving dishes, linens and appliances large families will appreciate the comforts of this home. Sufficient individual bath towels are needed. The dining table with 6 chairs and additional bar seating was great. A lovely deck with view of water provided a wonderful retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed our home. I will look into why you may have been short on linens. There should be enough for everyone. We can also do an inventory on kitchen items. We were well stocked with everything a couple months ago. There may not be a blender, waffle maker or salad making appliance, but we will double check. I always ask guests if they have a question or concern to let us know so we can help ASAP during their stay. We live nearby and can usually take care of anything right away. Kind regards, Chris and Robin

Wooded Lot with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The property is very nice and peaceful. Great views of the lake from the inside and outside of the cabin. The only request/suggestion I would make would be to add curtains in the bathrooms in addition to the frosted windows.

Beautiful home in a great location, we hope to visit again in the future.

Great house for our family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The kids had their own space upstairs and loved playing by the lakeshore. We were centrally located - a short drive from Whitefish Dunes, Peninsula State Park and Cana Island. Loved our stay.

Baileys Harbor has 2 beautiful public sand beaches
Car: necessary

Baileys Harbor is conveniently located among many of the Northern Door County communities. We boast over 6,000 acres of natural areas to explore including the Ridges Sanctuary. You can hike, bike and kayak to your heart's continent around Baileys Harbor.

There are three lighthouses in Baileys. Cana Island just north of town is open to the public and you may even climb to the top of this working light house. Another is the Bird Cage light house on a private island in Baileys that can be viewed up close by Kayaking or taking a boat tour from Lake Shore Adventures. Then there is the light house that is now part of the Ridges Sanctuary with a long boardwalk leading up from the public beach.

There is world class King Salmon and Rainbow Trout fishing off Baileys Harbor. Catch your trophy or at least some fine table fare for the grill during your stay. Again see Lake Shore Adventures for Charters or the latest fishing report if you have your own boat.

On a windy day go almost anywhere in Baileys and watch the kite boarders doing there acrobatics across the waves. There can be a dozen kites going at any given time.

If your real adventurous you can snorkel or dive various ship wrecks scattered across the Lake Michigan bottom. Again see Lake Shore Adventures for scuba and snorkel equipment, guided tours, or glass bottom kayaks to view the wrecks.

There are endless things to do in DC no matter what you prefer to do. One of the best parts about staying at our home is the location. It is tranquil and relaxing yet convenient to all the attractions. Enjoy your activities during the day and come home to peace and relaxation.
