This quaint, rustic, 750 sq ft cabin was one of the first constructed on the shores of Lake Sokokis in the late 40’s, before the days of setbacks, so you won't find a house closer to the water than ours.

The southern exposure offers amazing sunny views, great swimming, boating and fishing. You can bring your own boat, kayak, canoe or Jet Ski and tie up to our dock, or use the rowboat provided.

The fifth twin bed is on the sun porch and there is a pull out sofa bed. We will provide clean sheets, pillows, and a few towels. Amenities include: complete kitchen with stove, cooking utensils plates etc, bathroom with a shower, window air conditioner, Cable TV and phone, fire-pit, gas grill and deck furniture. We welcome your pets.

About Kim

We have been on Lake Sokokis for over 40 years. We love this lake and our summers in Maine. We have a house across the lake from the rental, and will be there to ensure you have a wonderful vacation experience.

Kim purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kim chose Southern Coast of Maine

We have been on this lake for over 40 years and it's a reasonable drive from Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We live for summer and our cottage offers all the best summer has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

Limerick offers everything you could need: restaurants, grocery store, shopping but most of all the lake. You don't need to leave the lake to be entertained, but if you chose to, there are so many attractions with in a short drive that we believe it's the perfect summer vacation spot!

I began my 8-week stay at the cottage on June 27, 2015. What an incredible adventure began. The cottage is the sweetest gem on the lake, furnished comfortably, fully stocked (including a wonderful welcome gift basket), so close to the water you can touch it, great deck to enjoy it all, sun all day...wonderful neighbors...the list goes on and on! Take advantage of all that the town of Limerick as to offer, as well as the entire area. The location of this property is close to everything!! I will be returning for another 8 weeks next summer! You won't be sorry!! :-)

Private, cozy, lakeside cottage, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the cottage was great. We loved swimming, boating, and fishing on the lake and were so happy to have our dogs with us to enjoy the lake too. We took walks around the area and rode our bikes down to the local ice cream shop for late afternoon treats. We had nice camp fires at night and enjoyed the peace and tranquility that the area offered. We took day trips to Portland, Sebago Lake, Cornish, and Wolfeboro on Lake Winnipesaukee. All were within a 30-45 minute ride.

The cottage had everything we needed to cook, a nice deck to sit out and enjoy meals while looking at the water, and a screened in porch for the one day it rained and we stayed in.

We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to vacation there again next year.

Vacations made easy!!!

  • 5 of 5

Kim worked so hard to make sure that everything was simplified for our vacation. The welcome basket was so appreciated. She had information on all the available eating and sight seeing places in the areas. She was accommodating to our needs. The description of the house is very accurate. We love coming to this lake and this house worked well for our needs.

Another absolutely wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I had the most wonderful time! This was our second time renting and we can't wait to come back. The lake is gorgeous and the cottage is directly in front of the lake with its own dock, porch and small beach area. The fishing on the lake is really good, we caught a number of large mouth bass. The cottage itself is simple but has everything you need and is very clean. It is clear that Kim takes the time to think about what you might need for your stay and makes sure the place has it. We barbecued, made a fire in the fire pit and had s'mores almost every night. We really can't say enough positive things about our experience!
