    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.

    Reached by a mile-long private drive, Kill Kare sits quietly in the woods. Lo...

My big, boisterous family planned a family reunion in Maine and we could not be more pleased that we chose Kill Kare cottage. It is an absolutely wonderful, well loved, classic but spacious Maine cottage on the absolutely gorgeous, pristine, Walker Pond. Well, it's more of a lake, really, and it is just beautiful. Catherine, the owner, is very proud... more

we just got back from a week stay at Killkare and I have to say I am tearing up a bit reflecting about just how perfect it was. The cottage is at once gracious and homey. You walk in and can feel that many people have loved it for a very long time. The pond is right there and our... more
