About the Property

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
ALSO we now have WIRELESS INTERNET and Direct TV with over 200 channels!

Limerick is a friendly community that offers restaurants, ice cream shops, 2 pizza shops, a donut shop, full grocery and hardware store, gas station, clean laundry mat, 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.

We want you to have a great vacation at a reasonable rate, and we’ll do what we can to welcome you to our cottage and to Limerick. Please feel free to contact us at the number listed on the right side of this page. Thanks for looking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Limerick, ME, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
