Carraig Nua House is one of the newest vacation rentals presented by Carraig Cottages. It is a 2500 sq ft, open concept, ranch style home that sits on about 2 acres of lawn and garden. It is in a tranquil country setting that is only 2.6 miles outside Baileys Harbor despite having a postal address in Fish Creek. It is a very convenient base to launch visits to any of the many sights in Door County.
Carraig Nua is a large, modern and very tastefully decorated home that we brought online in May of 2013. It has wood floors throughout. The home has nine foot tray ceilings with crown molding. There are 4 bedrooms that can sleep 14 guests. There are two living rooms two bathrooms, a fully functional kitchen with a pantry that is stocked full of all the equipment you will need to cook up a gourmet dinner. There is a large deck at the rear of the home with a top of the range Dacor Grill.
The master bedroom has 2 queen beds. There are multiple dressers and walk in closets. A very nice feature of this bedroom is the french sliding door that opens out on to the deck. A very large master bathroom is shared with another bedroom that has 2 single beds. The other two bedrooms have two doubles beds each and share a full bathroom. These rooms have dressers and large closets for all your needs.
One of the living rooms has a gas fire place. It is furnished with two oversized leather couches and an oversized love seat. There is an entertainment system here that houses a TV, DVD player and a music system. There is also WIFI. The Yamaha receiver can play your own songs via Airplay or it can wirelessly connect into your computer and play from you music library. You can also play Pandora, internet radio etc. The TV does have HD local channels available. There is NO premium TV service.
A nice featue of this home is the layout. The second living room splits the home into two separate wings with two bedrooms and a bathroom on each side, giving our guests some nice privacy, even when with a large group. This second living room is very tastefully decorated with couches, chairs, lamps and a book shelf that has a couple of titles. We planned and assembled this room with the intention of it being a quiet and reflective place where one can peacefully read or converse while looking out through the wall of glass doors, over the deck, down to the flower beds and beyond. The is also day bed in that area.
The kitchen is functional and fully stocked. There is a side by side fridge freezer, dishwasher, electric stove and top, coffee maker, kettle and all the tools you need to cook, eat and drink. Off the kitchen there is a large mud room that has a washer and dryer. There is also a chefs pantry that is loaded with all sorts of cooking utensils. Over the counter is a breakfast with at least six stools. There is also a beautiful wood table with plenty of seating for all. We would please ask our Guests to keep the table covered and use place mats to help protect it. It has very beautiful wood. We have a premium garbage service that picks up at the garage. There are separate recycling can for you to use.
Outside there is about 3 acres of mowed lawn for you to play and relax on. It is a very private setting. On the deck there are a few tables and plenty of outdoor chairs. There is a really nice Dacor grill with rotisserie. Dads – have a great time with that baby! We check the gas levels often if ever the gas tank is empty (this should never happen, but is possible) please bring the tank into Nelsons in Baileys Harbor and they will give you a refill. Of course, we will reimburse you for the cost of the refill. Off the deck there are some beautiful flowerbeds and plenty of grass to use. There is an active farm field just beyond the lawn and we would ask our Guests to stay out. The garden and area surrounding Carraig Nua is a haven for birds. Bring a pair of binoculars, if you have them, and see what you can. There is everything from bald eagles to hummingbirds. There is a cube box on the deck. In that there may be some bird seed. Please feel free to put some out in the feeder at the back of the garden.
