Chicory Lake House- A Door County Gem for All Ages

3 Bedrooms • 2 Baths • Sleeps 1-6
Internet Fireplace Lakefront (more...)

Welcome to Chicory Lake House - a premier family escape in the heart of Door County!

Our newly remodeled Kangaroo lakefront vacation home is located on a private road, just adjacent to the historic Kangaroo Lake causeway. Surrounded by calming waters and gorgeous lake views, Chicory Lake House is the perfect Door County retreat. Watch the Mergansers swim directly off the lakeside deck and patio, fish from the pier, or explore the lake on the provided kayaks and paddle boards. Wake up to direct views of the lake and spend evenings cozying up to a roaring lakeside bonfire. With all three bedrooms on one level, a gas fireplace, a large yard for outdoor games, and a game room complete with bumper pool and shuffleboard, Chicory Lake House is the perfect place to make memories for all ages and seasons.

Nestled among the reeds and mature trees on Kangaroo Lake's shoreline, Chicory Lake House feels like a true escape, yet it is just minutes from everything that Door County has to offer. Walk across the road to enjoy a local favorite - Coyote Roadhouse, or take the short drive to all the towns that make Door County a world-class vacation destination. We truly believe that Kangaroo Lake has every ingredient necessary to make lasting, generational vacation memories.

A word about our cleaning protocols….We have a larger family that stays in multiple vacation rentals a year. We know, firsthand, how the cleanliness of a rental can make or break your vacation. Unlike most vacation rentals, we wash/change-out all duvet covers, extra blankets, living room throw blankets, and living room throw pillow covers between every guest, in addition to all the typical bed sheets and pillowcases. Our cleaning process is extremely extensive because we know that your relaxation and enjoyment depends on it.

Years ago, on our first trip to Kangaroo Lake, someone shared their home with us. This began our goal of creating an exceptional and memorable vacation home to share the magic of Kangaroo Lake with others. We self-manage Chicory Lake House because we believe that you deserve the highest level of guest experience and peace-of-mind during your vacation. We look forward to hosting you and sharing our little slice of Door County!
