About the property

New Three Bedroom Two Bath House With Modern Kitchen

Nestled in a beautiful, tranquil area just minutes outside Baileys Harbor, Carraig Dale Cottage is a totally refurbished home in Door County. No expense was spared in the re birthing of this gem that comfortably sleeps eight in three bedrooms, with two full bathrooms. The central, main living area, with its beautiful vaulted ceiling, consists of a spacious living room and a fully functional, modern and equipped kitchen, complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is also a reverse osmosis water filter, and a brand new Samsung washer and dryer.

Through the sliding French doors from the kitchen, you can walk out onto our large sun drenched 700 square foot deck that has a BBQ and ample furnishings for you and your family to completely relax and enjoy. The patio area has speakers that can be controlled from the house sound system. Carraig Dale sits on a beautiful lawn that is at least two acres in size, more than enough room to enjoy many outdoor activities. Please do not hesitate to bring your boats or jet skis. There is more than enough parking space for all your toys.

The interior of the house was tastefully decorated. There are two plush couches, one a queen size sleeper, and an oversized chair in the living room. There is a TV with DVD and a sound system. Free WI-FI is also provided. There are three bedrooms, one with its own full bathroom with tub/shower .

Carraig Dale was decorated with intention. We may well have spent more time deliberating and working on color palates and natural light penetration than on any other facet of this remarkable home. When you walk in the door you will be infused with peace and tranquility. This is not random or accidental. We understand that you are on vacation, that you need to distress and spend quality time with your loved ones. We have set the stage – the rest is up to you.

Carraig Dale is a new home. We understand that you may have a little apprehension renting a home that has no track record. But please take comfort in the fact that this is what we do, and we do it right. Click on “All My Rental Listings” below, under 'Links To More Information' and view our other houses that we have listed here in Baileys Harbor. Check out the reviews. Our flagship home, Carraig Mor Cottage, is the most reviewed home in Door County on VRBO with 55 five star reviews. We take pride in serving you and this shows through in the quality of our homes. A testament to this is the fact that we have rented several weeks this year, before we had a website and before we had a picture. Our guests, past and present, believe and trust us to deliver, and we do.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read about our beautiful Carraig Dale and we hope to see you soon.

Better than Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My original concern was the distance from Bailey's Harbor but it was insignificant and the house was perfect for our needs. Everything we could possibly need was there. The furnishings were top rate. My son gave me excellent reviews on how the bedroom looked and I had nothing to do with it. All of the kitchen appliances were perfect. I also appreciate the support I received from the owners concerning our inability to use the TV. Since we were involved in the jazz camp, we really didn't need the TV. There's too much to do in Door County! This is the best rental I have ever had.

Carraig Dale in beautiful rural Door County

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage. This rental met and surpassed my expectations. Kids still talk about the weeks we spent at Carraig Dale. Ideal location for visiting all our favorite places in Fish Creek, Ephraim, Baileys Harbor, etc. Kids enjoyed flying kites & exploring the large property. We enjoyed biking around the rural location and having adventures in the refined, farm-like setting. I loved the wifi!!!!, chef's kitchen and all the updated appliances. I miss my quiet time drinking coffee & reading on the deck with a gorgeous view of the surrounding countryside. Could actually imagine living on a farm after staying here!

Carriag Beag

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and charmingly appointed house. Well stocked and conveniently located to take in all Door County has to offer. Out the door and down a short block to the marina. The heart of the house is the kitchen and livingroom with bedrooms and bathrooms on either side.

Beautiful Home and Relaxed Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We came to Carraig Dale seeking a nice getaway and were very happy with the accommodations. The home is newer construction and is spacious enough for two families. Our group had 4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs and we all were pretty comfortable. The wrap around deck with sound system was great--we could use Pandora on the television and have it play outside or inside. What struck me was the natural beauty. It's easy to get wrapped up in the tourist stuff on the bay side of Door County, but here you are far enough away that you can see every star in the sky on a cloudless night and walks along the country road south of the house are really amazing. That said, the house is 5-10 minutes away from Bailey's Harbor and 15 minutes from the bay side. It's very convenient to just about anywhere you want to go. Martina and her staff were very accommodating and responsive as well when we needed linens and towels. And if you have dogs, you can't ask for more. While there is no fence (and you wouldn't want one here) the dogs have so much room to run and play. We just had a great, memorable experience.

Week vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained and functional home. Big windows let in wonderful light. Loved the large deck for sitting in the sun. Wonderful country views. Well maintained lawn and home. Nicely decorated with just the right amount of items to feel homey but not cluttered. Very convenient location to Fish Creek, Egg Harbor and Bailey's Harbor.

Will visit again

Visitor for a Weekend Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home while attending a wedding in Door County at the end of June. This home is beautifully appointed and set up to live comfortably. The central common space is great for gathering and because all of the bedrooms come off of the common space it gives it a cozy communal feel. It even has wifi for those who may not be able to drop out completely while on vacation. The appliances and other amenities are very nice and the home was immaculate and well maintained. We loved using the wrap around porch for both the morning and the evening sun. Centrally located to both Fish Creek, Egg Harbor, and Bailey's Harbor it's a bit of a drive to both (10-15 minutes), but all are manageable distances. The country setting is tranquil, quiet, and dark at night. Great for getting a good night's rest. There is a lot of grassy space around the house for relaxing and playing outside as well. I would recommend this property for people looking to visit the area while staying out of the congestion of the main towns.
