Kill Kare is a complete and modernized cottage, available for rentals throughout the year. While only two miles from the city limits of Sturgeon Bay, you?ll feel secluded and refreshed here. The water is shallow, on an area of the bay called ''the flats'', known for great fishing, Boating, and swimming. During some years it's possible for an average height adult to walk over 300 yards into the bay before it is over his or her head. Additionally, there is a sand bar, often exposed, about 75 yards off shore ? a great place to bring the children for a fun diversion. (During the Winter the bay freezes over entirely - perfect for skating, broomball, snowshoeing, or hiking.)

There are no inhabited dwellings on the lots adjacent to Kill Kare, so it truly is a secluded environment. Potawatomi State Park is just across the bay, so the view is unhampered.

There are no city lights to dim your nighttime view of the stars as you gather around the bonfire on the beach. The driveway is long and tree-lined, isolating you from Highway BB and any traffic noise.

''Kill Kare'' is the name that our grandfather, Louis H. Nebel, gave to this wonderful getaway on Wisconsin's Door County Peninsula. Maybe his love of Shakespeare prevailed, envisioning a place where all cares, worries would be killed. He was Door County's first electrical contractor, and though his residence was only two miles away in Sturgeon Bay, like any businessman, he valued his retreat place. The cottage has been our family gathering place ever since, a place where four generations now have forged their fondest memories.

Our grandfather originally purchased this property in November of 1922...for $750! He paid his mortgage off in two years. Then, in 1935 he secured a mortgage of $5,400 to construct the first phase of the building.

Over the years Kill Kare grew in a piecemeal fashion--adding a sun porch and a small upstairs loft. Then, in 1999, our mother, Helen Nebel, saw to it that the building would be expanded and renovated to serve future generations. When she died in 2002 her will specified that the cottage somehow stay in the family, with rentals allowed to provide for upkeep and taxes - but not as an income property, per se.

*Today Kill Kare is a modernized 4 plus bedroom home, secluded and situated on over 100 feet of private sand beach, available for year-round rentals. You'll gather a sense of our family's history here, and perhaps you'll start to gather a sense of your own. We just love this place, reserving enough family time each year to keep the sense of home and heritage alive. And though most of us no longer live in Door County, we make routine pilgrimages back home - to kill our cares. You'll see why.

The house was wonderful, and Tom was a great host. He had the house nice and warm before we got there. The accommodations were fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. The view was great, and everyone who came with me loved it.

Door County Get Away

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The home was larger than we thought. There was plenty of room for 8 of us. Home was clean & well maintained. Beautiful view of the Bay. We loved the firepit on the shore for fires at night. Too cold this time of year to enjoy the cool water, but did many other things Door County offers. The trees were just starting to turn & we enjoyed the beauty of the golf courses. Would highly recommend this home & will go back again if available.

Our family had a great time and we can vouch that they have enough room for 14 people. My brothers, sister, and their children went here for our parents' 40th anniversary and everyone had a great time. You can't beat the view and there is plenty of shopping and beaches within 30 minutes of the cottage. The only thing we would were missing was AC during a couple of hot nights. The fishing was great over towards the quarry, need to go out at least 200ft from shore before it gets deep enough to fish.
