Carraigeen Cottage is a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage right on the shores of beautiful Kangaroo Lake. Fully remodeled in the Spring of 2015, it has a fully equipped modern kitchen with granite countertops, wood flooring, new stainless steel appliances, including a full sized dishwasher, full stove, large refrigerator, and new washer / dryer. It has 4 queen pillow top beds perfect for 1-2 families or a group of friends.
Outside there is a BBQ and picnic style tables. There are several chairs. We have a spot for a boat at the dock. You are welcome to bring your own boat. You can launch it at the Baileys Harbor boat launch on Kangaroo Lake Road. There is a $5 launch fee and it is on the honor system. The collection box is at the launch.
Kangaroo Lake is about 1,200 acres in size and is shallow. It is about eleven feet at its deepest. A shallow lake is a warm lake. One week of eighty degree weather and the lake becomes your personal heated swimming pool. The downside of a shallow lake is that you are limited to boat size. Smaller fishing boats (lees than 19ft), jet skis, jet boats, canoes and sail boats are perfect. At the back to the property there is ample place to park your trailers. We have just purchased two canoes that will be available for rent next season.
Children will love paddling and swimming in the warm waters of Kangaroo Lake, catching minnows right off the dock in front of the cottage. The lake also holds a variety of larger fish like bass and pike. This is a great location for biking, hiking and close to all the downtown amenities of Baileys Harbor and Egg Harbor. Shops, restaurants, galleries, cafes and the marina and beach are only a few minutes away.
If you rent one of our other properties and would like to have access to Kangaroo Lake, why not consider renting Carraigeen as well? It is not a bad – several of our previous Guests have done this. It is worth considering.
As with the rest of our properties we generally do not provide linens but please ask if there is anything we can do you make your stay more comfortable and memorable.
