Very good

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped nice cabin. It is a 2 minute walk to the lake which you can just see from the porch. It is quiet and safe. It is 5 miles to the nearest store so stock up if u dont want to leave camp every day. Swimming from the dock is easy.

Lovely cottage on a beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

A much needed and relaxing weekend was had by all at this lovely cottage on Embden Pond. The cottage sits in a lovely little collection of other cottages and the neighbors are friendly and quiet. The cottage had everything we needed including bedding and towels. Perfect place to get away. The only thing that was inconvenient for us - we brought kayaks. The cottage is not far from the lake and the shore line access is a very narrow path with rocks for lake access. There is a boat slip two driveways down. However, the distance from the cottage did not leave us convinced it was okay to leave the boats unattended. We had to bring them back and forth from the lake every time we went out. It is doable if you have people there to help you or don't mind carrying the boats. Complicated for us because of the children and older family members. I would have preferred a more shore like access by the cottage itself for that reason. HOWEVER, if you are not boaters and are looking for a quiet place to relax, this is a perfect little getaway! The owner was very communicative and responded quickly to any questions we had. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your cottage!
