Property description

This cabin is a haven from the high stress world. It’s private, surrounded by pine trees and rests only 50 feet away from beautiful Embden Pond. The Pond is pristine, spring fed and is 5 miles long. It is actually the size of a lake but it is called a pond in Maine. The sun rises earlier in Maine than anywhere else in America which gives you more hours to enjoy your stay on the Lake. The days are longer on the East side and you enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The cabin is our vacation home which we have decided to share with you this year. Built in the 50’s it now has all the modern conveniences you will need for a comfortable stay. There are two bedrooms and a loft for sleeping. Kids and adults enjoy sleeping in the loft which is like a birds nest overlooking the cabin and the lake. It has a large aluminum dock for ease of boating, fishing or just relaxing. The kitchen is large for many people to cook and prepare meals at the same time. The long counter top allows for serving buffet style. which is a Maine tradition. The gas grill is handy right outside of the kitchen. Everything you need is there, so if you are flying in, just pick up your food and drinking water... and you are set. Our place is pet friendly.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Norm and I have been married for 15 years, and he is from Maine and spent many childhood summers at camps on Embden. I fell in love with Maine and especially Embden Pond on my first visit. We currently live in an old bungalow in St. Petersburg, Florida and are still working full time. We have a wonderful life in Florida , however we will be spending many retirement months on Embden Pond. We spend all our vacation time at "camp", which is what the locals call it. Every May we spend a week opening and preparing the camp for summer guests and include a "to do list" of upgrades each year, as it our home too. I enjoy watching my husband putting in the dock, with his kindergarten friend, Le laughing as they work together in the lake. Norm's friends are always there for us to help us with our upgrades and eat at the camp! As we cannot be there as much as we would like, we really enjoy sharing it. We have finally named it "TALL PINES" after many, many options from friends. When you come there, you will see why the name fits perfectly.

Why the Owner Chose Embden, ME, USA:
Norm's parents were actually friends with the original owners of this camp. In the 50's, three couples, who were all good friends, had built their cabins next to each other. My mother-in-law still reminisces about the musicians who played as well as all the great times she had there. The cabin location is such a draw, that we have had a wedding on the lake there, many family gatherings and even a girls retreat birthday week. I enjoy socializing and shopping too! So girls, here are some of my favorites ; Reny's - the Maine experience store (my favorite and you MUST go there), Madison Thrift Shop, The Evergreens restaurant, Pinkham's corner grocery and Moxie Falls. I just love the people in Maine as they are the friendliest I have ever found. We rarely see the neighbors, but we always enjoy them and they are there anytime we need them. I consider one of them my "sister". That is another reason I love being there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What we enjoy most about our cabin is the wonderful secluded privacy and the nature. I wake up earlier than I do at home, get the coffee and sit outside listening to the birds and the breeze, before my husband wakes up. When he wakes up, we sit on the deck and continue our peaceful contentment. We love watching the early morning fishermen and see the hummingbirds at our feeders. While here I even bake, which I do not have time or care to do at home. Somehow this cabin reverts me back to the days when women can just be. I love to relax with a good book on the deck, or at night reading inside while listening to the Loons. Every evening we sit by the campfire (as my husband is the campfire king). You will know that as soon as you see the size of the fire pit. We supply all the firewood you will need for your night time campfires. After my husband goes to sleep, I enjoy reading and even getting on my laptop, as I am doing right now at 9:59pm on May 22nd after 4 days of working my "honey do lists". This year we installed gravel and graded the driveway that was washing out, a new washer machine, a kitchen faucet, an AC unit (for the rare, few summer days it is warm) and carried many rocks to create our stone lined path. We enjoyed every minute while being there, working and relaxing at the same time.
