About the property

4000 SF built in 2010, 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths located on a point w/amazing view

We rent two other properties on VRBO #467927 and #699521 with a 5-Star rating. This is our personal home being made available for 2 weeks only.

The property is located on a 3.5 acre lot with 250' of gorgeous shoreline. The home is located on a point with views to the south of famous Cave Point.

This new home has a large master bedroom and master bath on the main floor with walk in tile shower. There is a great room centered in the home with 18' tall masonry fireplace. A 60" flatscreen LED TV with Dish TV is all set to watch your favorite shows. All floors on the main floor are wood or tile.

The kitchen is very roomy with Wolf range, 2 refrigerators, dishwasher, cherry cabinetry. All countertops in the home are granite.

You will find yourself very relaxed and comfortable.

The location is perfect. You are 10 to 15 minutes to just about anything you want to do, but you are in a quite peaceful setting. I grew up in Door County and chose this location to build our dream home. I like to be relaxed without hearing a busy highway, traffic and lots of people when I get home. You will love the location.

If you like to hike there is a nature preserve that boarders our driveway. It has a great path that goes through the woods and along a creek that runs from Kangaroo Lake to Lake Michigan. You can also take long walks down the beach, but with the water level rising the beach is getting smaller and you may need to get your feet wet in places.

Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms and a large rec-room with ping pong table.

Patios are bluestone and there is a large fire pit overlooking the water. Sit around the fire at night and share stories under the starry skies.

I have family that live 2 minutes away should you need help with anything.

It is hard to find a home of this caliber with such privacy and breath taking views. We know you will cherish your stay here.

About Chris Warecki

I grew up in Door County and fell in love with the water and this area of the county. It is very peaceful with lots of natural beauty, yet close enough to get to the hustle and bustle in a matter of minutes.

I have been in construction most of my life, and my wife still teaches elementary. We like to travel and enjoy all the festivals Door County has to offer.

Chris Warecki purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris Warecki chose Baileys Harbor

This is a rare opportunity to stay in such a unique property. We only rent our home for 2 weeks out of the year.

What makes this house unique

We are located on a point with fantastic water views. The point is located where the shoreline changes from sandy shores to ledge rock. If you walk to the south it is sandy beach and if you go to the north is is ledge rock. The shoreline changes constantly as does the water levels. One day the water can be like glass and the next there can be big surf. The water in front of the house is very shallow and great for kids.

When everyone finally got home, we all felt that we should of, could of stayed so much longer.

No one felt like going shopping or leaving the property, we were so comfortable staying put!

We sure hope that we will get a chance to come back again in the future!

Beautiful Home and location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous modern home on Lake Michigan just outside of Baileys Harbor. Huge house with room for many guests, excellent views of lake, great place for walks through the woods and next to the nature preserve. All the amenities, clean and well maintained. Head into Baileys Harbor for fun bars (don't miss the Blue Ox) and restaurants (Cornerstone has great pizza to eat in or carry out). Just a few miles over to the bay side if you want more of the tourist area but can rent bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and do ziplining on this side too! You can't go wrong with this property and will not be disappointed!

Peaceful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and clean, with amazing views. Great location on the quieter side of Door County yet close to restaurants, shopping, and activities. When not relaxing at the house we had a blast zip lining and kayaking. I would highly recommend this house for a vacation destination.

A lovely private oasis on Lake Michigan.

  • 4 of 5

We were in Door County attending our son's wedding. This property was a great location to all the Door County festivities. A large great room/open kitchen worked very well for the family to gather. The various sleeping quarters were scattered so everyone had privacy. We enjoyed the fire pit every night!

The owner's were available to answer all of our questions. The perfect property for a perfect occasion!
