4 Paws Up!

Yes, we freely admit, we are some of the serial renters of this lovely cottage named 'Carraig Mor.' This has been our third visit to Bailey's Harbor. And it is my belief that no higher compliment can be paid to an owner and their property but continued patronage.
Autumn in Door feels as though it has come early this year. The fall leaves are at their peak of color and the days are crisp in temperature with a brisk breeze. Our previous visits had been closer to mid October in the past, with fewer festivals to attend. This year's bonanza happened to be visiting during the Columbus Day weekend where there was plenty of activities to choose from (should you be so inclined). My favorite happened to be the quilt show at Mr. G's in Jacksonport.
One of these days, we must come during the warmer weather when the magnificent gardens are in full bloom. Though Sophie, our Golden Retriever, is a cold loving doggie - we may change it up soon!
The house is a stones throw from the main street of town and the shores of Lake Michigan. It is nestled amid lush greenery that provides an oasis from any of the surrounding neighbors homes. The gardens are truly spectacular in esthetic color and design.
Carraig Mor is heads and shoulders above the typical D.C.rental property. The cottage has a homey feel and a calm welcoming vibe that encourages you to sit down and stay awhile, visit, make friends and come back soon! It is spacious, well designed and fully stocked (see website). Martina & Jerry are discerning owners. (You can also see my previous reviews for additional comments).
But, shhhh - don't tell too many folks about this gem of a place!
