Description

Penny Cottage is a quaint lakeside cottage in Limerick, Maine on Sokokis Lake offering a true Maine experience with vintage furnishings in a comfortable, clean atmosphere. Penny Cottage offers a private and serene setting, yet is within walking distance to local restaurants, grocers and shops. The cottage is situated less than a stone’s throw from the town boat launch and offers ample dock space for watercraft. Just a short drive away is beautiful Libby Orchards offering pick-your-own blueberries, raspberries and apples. For antique lovers, the town of Cornish, Maine is a must see only a 15 minute drive from the cottage. If you feel adventurous, North Conway, New Hampshire and Portland, Maine are only an hour away. Our local agricultural fairs draw big crowds, especially the Fryeburg Fair at the end of September/early October, most are less than an hour drive. If a quiet day is on the agenda, sit on the back porch in the wicker rocker with a good book and enjoy the view of the lake or walk the lawn down to the open waterfront and watch a chorus of Canada geese swoop down onto the water.
Sokokis lake is great for swimming and boating. 

Shawnee Peak is 50 minutes from Penny cottage.

Thanks for sharing your home with us! I loved all the charm and character of the house. Everything was clean and easy to find. We enjoyed having 2 kayaks to use. Lake was perfect for paddling. The back deck was relaxing place to hang out and have dinner outside My only suggestion is to note low ceiling height going up back stairs from kitchen. Not issue for me but my husband had to duck his head.

Wonderful cottage on lakefront! Enjoyed relaxing fall weekend fishing from dock and exploring in kayaks. House was very clean and had everything we needed. Great to be on side of lake with afternoon sun. Our host Patricia was very responsive and easy to deal with.

My gf and I stayed here for two weeks in August/September. We had a great time and it exceeded our expectations. The house was very clean and spacious. The lake was beautiful with plenty of nearby activities. The deck outback facing the lake was pretty amazing. We strongly recommend this property and would stay again.

Hi Patricia, thank you for your prompt response to all our questions/concerns. We had a great vacation! Best, Kim

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, and the views of the lake were spectacular! We played on our SUPs, enjoyed the kayaks provided, and swam a lot! We encountered broken glass in the beach area, near the dock, and our girls made use of their masks and snorkels to do a treasure hunt/clean up. We notified Patricia and received a fast response (she was excellent). I'd recommend water shoes just in case. The cottage was clean and well supplied. We made smores at the fire pit and enjoyed the view. The neighbors on both sides of the cottage were friendly. My husband and I agreed we'd stay here again in the future.

Great little cottage right on the lake. Walk down to a lovely new dock and put in a kayak or a paddle board. The lake is small with two sections but lovely and easy to navigate. The boat ramp is next door. The boaters are polite and the majority of vessels are pontoon boats for cruising and the others are smaller motor boats used mostly to pull water skiers or kids on floats. Penny cottage has two kayaks and Patricia arranged for us to get a paddle board. We went out everyday! The bedrooms are lovely with nice linens. The one bath is big with great hot water, plush towels and a new washer dryer. Amenities mean a lot. We loved eating breakfast and dinner over looking the water on the large outdoor porch. We had a great lobster feed one night as there is a great lobster pound in nearby Cornishwhich also has lovely antique stores that are open Wednesday through Sunday. There is a beautiful fire pit out on the lawn. We used it every night to hang out chat and make Smores. We were blessed with warm days and cool nights but in case you get a hot week the A/C units do the trick. As the cottage is situated in a bit of a valley below a small mountain ridge, the natural breezes are amazing. We also saw an eagle, a blue heron, and of course fish ducks and turtles. I highly recommend this little piece of heaven as its got everything you need for a peaceful Maine getaway far from the madding crowd but close enough for a jaunt to Portland Sebago or Winnipesaukee if thats on your bucket list.

Penny Cottage is an excellent quiet getaway with a beautiful lake you can kayak through, a dock you can jump off of and cool off, or sit and watch the sunset, and a fire pit where you u can unwind at night. Patricia was a great host and very quick responding to my messages.

This is a fantastic place to stay . The house is adorable and very comfortable . The house has everything you need including very comfortable beds and living room area. It is situated directly on the lake with access to two kayaks at the house . We rented an additional kayak and paddle board which Patricia arranged for me seamlessly . The house is located within walking distance to the small town with two restaurants including an outdoor seafood shack and ice cream shop . Because of COVID, we mainly stayed at home and cooked which was easy because the grocery store is literally a 3 minute drive away and the outside deck is a fantastic location for dinner with the lake view . My kids also enjoyed the outdoor basketball court within a 5 minute walking distance . Thank you for a wonderful experience !!
