Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Southern Coast of Maine - So. Maine Lakefront Cottage

Clean cabin w/2 Bedrooms + Sun Porch w/day bed, 1 Bath w/shower, (Sleeps 5)

New for 2016 - Updated kitchen faucet, and resurfaced deck.

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. We can’t boast that our cottage is new or luxurious, but we’re proud that is it impeccably clean, with all the comforts of home.

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.

If you’re searching for a great family vacation this is your spot. There are 2 bedrooms; one with 2 twin beds, the other bedroom has a bunk bed. 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.

CENTRAL HEAT Installed for the cool Spring and fall nights - email for discounted rates for off season

Limerick is a friendly community that offers restaurants, ice cream shops, 2 pizza shops, a donut shop, full grocery and hardware store, an award winning tea shop, gas station and a toy store, all within 2 miles.

For the more adventurous, Portland is 45-minutes to the east, and North Conway is a 45-minute drive to the west. There you can find movie theaters, shopping and a variety of restaurants and other attractions. Sanford Maine is 30 minutes to the south with a public golf course, a miniature golf course, movie theaters and dining.

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!! :-)

Clean and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this cabin! We had a blast during our stay. Upon our arrival we were created by. Kim for a quick tour of the property. Right away I noticed the care taken to ensure we had a relaxing stay. The house was well cleaned, and stocked with all the basic neccities, including coffee, tea, and wine! We were able to bring our dogs on vacation with us, which is a big plus in our family. Highly recommend cabin for all!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our stay in Limerick was outstanding, you could not ask for more in a cabin, it had all the comforts of home, The cabin was spotless and well furnished, beds were comfortable and the linens inviting great place to sleep after a day of sightseeing or swimming .Kim made us feel welcome and the cabin was so inviting we did not want to leave. The only thing I would change is our length of stay would increase from 1 week to 2.

Maine cabin on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Kim has a beautiful little cabin right on the water. Easy to get to but very private. We were there in May so the area was not so busy. I'm sure summer gets busier. Kim left a very extensive and beautiful welcome basket for us and showed us all the features and how everything works. The cabin is no frills, which is exactly what we like when in Maine. She does have WiFi (pretty fast) and DirectTv. Plenty of utensils, glasses and plates. I had my dog with me and he was as welcome as we were. Great walks in the woods and we saw a wild turkey on two of the walks. Over-all a delightful and relaxing place to spend a week or long weekend.

Lovely cottage by the water

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage on the water. The market nearby had some prepared foods, so we made purchase there for the grill and breakfast. It's not a supermarket, but a nice shop for your immediate needs. Whether you prefer to be right at the water's edge, on the deck, or on the enclosed porch, there is a great view of the lake regardless. Do remember, however, that it is NOT handicap accessible, be sure to hold onto handrails when descending the stairs from the parking area. All in all, it was a lovely stay, and we would consider it again if we plan to visit the same area. Thank you for sharing your lovely cabin!

Relaxing and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend at the Cottage. Very comfortable and cozy. It was so relaxing and private. Saw all sorts of wildlife... a pack of turkeys, an otter, lots of little fish and crawdads. Worth an early wake up to see the mist laying over the water... and then back to bed for a lay in. The cottage had everything we needed. Great little fire pit and a little row boat to paddle across the lake and up the river a little ways. Would love to come back later in the year when the water warms up and take a dip.
