    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.

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

Can't wait to return to Kill Kare. My family and I have been heading to this wonderful house the last few years for a family reunion. It gives us all a chance to be in the same spot for one magical week each summer. The house is lovingly cared for and fully equipped. Stock up on some good wine, cold... more

It's so relaxing to escape to this area of Maine where there is no cell service or internet to recharge for a few days on the lake. Picking up Lobsters and other fresh seafood at the Co-Op and cooking them up in... more

To visit Kill Kare is to step back in time to the early 20th century without leaving modern comforts behind. This exquisite summer cottage offers postcard-perfect lake views, gracious spaces to relax both inside and out and a well-equipped kitchen. A staircase off the porch leads to a modern, splinter-free dock where you can sunbathe before hopping into the pristine... more
