    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    6 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    Uniquely located in a pine forest on a pristine fresh water lake only 1/4 mile inland from the coastal waters of the Penobscot Bay, Kill Kare Kamp has remained in the same family since it was built in 1917. So named because you can go there to 'kill your cares', the home has a warm spirit about it that brings both energy and peace - a place to recharge and unwind. The cottage is an ideal family retreat where you can do as much or as little as you please, a beautiful spot to enjoy a variety of water sports and the perfect base from which to explore the beauty that is Maine's Down East coast and the nearby towns of Blue Hill, Deer Isle, Stonington, Castine, Camden, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.

What a wonderful cottage! It's location on Walker Pond is idyllic. I enjoyed the mornings and evenings on the fabulous porch enjoying the quiet or kayaking in the lake while exploring the nearby towns and Acadia National Park during the day. Cathy and Dan Larson have equipped the comfortable cottage with whatever you need including binoculars to check out the... more
