About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10-15)

Relax and refresh your spirit at our 3-season, intimate, one-of-a-kind oasis. Stay in your own cottage and be filled with its bright pleasures. The location is right on the water with awesome views of an absolutely pristine lake, one of the cleanest in the United States. There is a nice, grassy front yard and small beach area.

The cottage is very tastefully decorated with that 'home-away-from-home' feeling. Although rustic in nature, it is very modern and recently renovated. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, full bath with shower, and comfortable living room. There is a deck from which you can watch the sunrise and sunset.

With summer water temperatures averaging in the low 70's, this gorgeous lake makes swimming a refreshing delight. The lake houses the largest fish hatchery in the state of Maine which stocks the lake with bass, land-locked salmon and lake trout. There is a very gradual entry, making it safe for small children. You will enjoy the surrounding wildlife and tranquility of the scenic countryside as you leave the rest of the world behind. Our cool nights are wonderful for restful sleep, broken only by the soothing early morning cry of a beautiful loon.

Enjoy a good book, explore the lake by canoe, walk a nature trail or just relax at the water's edge. You can barbeque outside with the family, explore the many hills and hidden ponds and feel the exhilaration of a great day of fishing.

This place is beautiful! I have been in other cabins, but this one all I could say was WOW. The pictures don't show the beauty of this place and the cabins. The property was clean, grocery store and restaurants were all within a short drive. . The living room is very spacious, the beds were comfortable as well as the living, dining and kitchen area. It was a beautiful spot for us to enjoy.

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Definitely yes.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 boys and I had the pleasure of staying here for a weekend. Bob is a wonderful host and one of the nicest people I have ever met! The lake is amazing! My boys stayed in the water much of the time whether it be swimming or canoeing or kayaking etc. We were sad to leave. The cottage was lovely, clean and had everything we could need. It was so relaxing there. This would be an ideal place for a multi-family vacation. Skowhegan is about 20 minutes away which has restaurants, a large grocery store and great ice cream and mini golf at Giffords! We definitely plan on visiting again next summer! Bring your beach towels, swimsuits and marshmallows for toasting over a camp fire and get ready for quality time together!

My family and I have been to this cabin and others by the same owner for nearly ten years. A great place to escape and getaway from it all. The lake is quiet and beautiful. Fishing is typically good whether it's from a boat, the shore or the docks. Just an overall great place to take some downtime and relax. The cabins have what you need to get by and if you forgot anything the town is a quick 15-20 minute drive and Skowhegan is about 30 minutes if you need something more.

Perfect Little Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Went up from CT for a week of ice fishing. Exceeded my expectations. The cabin was beautiful and very comfortable. Tucked away about 20 minutes from the nearest town, very peaceful. Come nightfall, you can hear a pin drop. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning next year and would recommend this wonderful place to anyone looking for an affordable vacation that is worth every cent!

Rural location yet many activities nearby (see above). Awesome lake. Extremely peaceful & relaxing. Serenity and quality family at its best. Many of our first time guests have never heard of Embden Lake. However, over half come back year after year and begin to bring family members and/or friends along.
