About the property

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

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.

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 Limerick

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!

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.

Clean, well maintained and with all the extras that Kim provided

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. We were right on the lake and enjoyed sunsets over the lake. The weather was warm for mid October and the chairs at the waters edge while the sun's rays warmed us was welcomed for a mid-October vacation. Went hiking on two trails (not too difficult) and enjoyed a boat ride as well. A wonderful, relaxing time.

Wonderful Lakehouse in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary week at this lake house in Limerick, ME from Kim Cole. Kim was an exceedingly wonderful landlady whereby she made she we had everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We LOVED the small sandy beach right in front of the house - and I swam several times in the cool/cold clear clean water as well as our own dock. We LOVED the deck where we ate our meals outside and the screened in porch where we appreciated the rainy days and the gorgeous views of the lake. This house has the best views of the lake. We even had a fire in the outdoor pit on one cold night. I cannot recommend Kim and her lake house enough - and the area was fabulous - lots of fun places to explore and eat. Mostly, we appreciated being able to bring our Pyrenees, Lilly, who loved the house as much as we did. THANK YOU KIM FOR A WONDERFUL WEEK!! We hope to see you next year!
