Large Cabin on Beautiful Embden Lake - Great for Two Families

Bedrooms 4
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms , 2 lofts, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This property is a large cabin just 25 feet from beautiful Embden Lake. 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, 2 living spaces. It is a great way to share a vacation with friends or 2 families and maintain some privacy. There is a common door that locks from either side for privacy. The adults can share a dinner on the porch while the kids enjoy a movie in the other area . No smoking inside, but please feel free to smoke on the porch.

There is a deck and a great screened porch with sofa, chairs and a large picnic table. Each space has two bedrooms and a loft. The bedrooms have one double bed and three queens. The lofts have three double beds and a futon. There are two fully-equipped kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms. The space is comfortably furnished in traditional Maine camp decor - see photos in attached website link. Linens and towels are provided at no extra charge. See list of amenities below to save some packing time.

Embden Lake is a crystal clear, spring-fed pond- great for swimming. There is a common swimming dock and beach just a stone's throw from the cabin. We also share a playground with swings, slides, etc.

There are many opportunities for day hikes including waterfalls and amazing vistas. Moosehead Lake and the town of Greenville are only one hour away. There are several antique stores, restaurants and unique shops en route and in the town proper.

We highly recommend stopping at Spring Creek BBQ in Monson on this roadtrip for the best pulled pork sandwiches in New England. Do not miss Lakewood Theater, just a few miles from the cabins. Here you can step back over 100 years in time to enjoy dinner and a play or children's theater at America's oldest summer theater. There is also a golf course.

About Lisa

We lived in Maine for 25 years and recently retired to the Gulf Coast.

Lisa purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Lisa chose Embden

We vacationed on Embden Lake for 8 years with our good friends before having the opportunity to buy our cottages. It was originally a children's camp, then a proper New England resort where we rented annually and now all privately owned. We have raised our children (and their friends) on this lake and it has many fond memories.

What makes this cabin unique

Our camps are in a large building and were renovated by the previous owners in to a large space with an adjoining door- this gives us privacy from our company but still keeps us connected for gatherings and community. We love that they are right on the water and have a sense of privacy but still offer the opportunity for meeting other travelers or locals who live there.

My favorite place would be the screen porch- always cool and restful in the summer for reading, sleeping, relaxing or entertaiining many! Loons crying and grills smoking..

me and my husband went for our anniversary, i have never met such nice people, the owners were amazing,even went as far as having one of their friends bring us a mixer i needed to make a cheese cake ! the place is amazing. you feel very secluded, even though there are more camps near by. the enclosed porch is so comfortable, with amazing view. you can sit there and hear the loons. the sitting area outside with barbeque is wonderful too. the water is right there.the lake is so clean and clear. we loved our stay there very much and definitely will return !!

Great Family Cabins!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our adult children and grandchild here for a week and absolutely loved the experience. We were looking for a rustic, yet comfortable experience, and these connected cabins fit the bill perfectly. The cabins were clean, had comfortable furniture, and were well prepared for our visit. All we had to do was bring in the food, wine and marshmallows and we were ready to go. Right on the lake, the cabins were well suited to swimming, kayaking, and fishing. Just having our coffee on the screened-in porch was worth the visit. We look forward to returning with our family next year!

Great, large cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huge and so incredibly campy! It is smack on the water and the porch is just picture perfect. The view is amazing from the porch and outside you can sunbathe around the grill looking out at the lake, or hang on the swim dock.

There are two full kitchens and two bathrooms with great showers.

The lake is wonderful for swimming and boating. The sandy beach was perfect for us to sunbathe on the big dock while the kids swam all day.

The beds are all comfortable and we could really spread out. We also enjoyed our trip to Skowhegan for the fair. Great hiking nearby and we canoed the Kennebec which is a few miles away. We didn't try the whitewater rafting in Bingham which is not far, but are coming back to try that next summer!

Highly recommend it!

what a great place!

  • 5 of 5

I must say that I was most pleased with the accommodations at our cabin on Embden Lake. The screened in porch was a great place to have breakfast and enjoy all the wild life on the water in the mornings. The fire pit offered us opportunity to sit outside at night and enjoy the loons and stars. We had plenty of room inside and lots to do outside. Great place for family time and located in a very nice community. Not only is it a wonderful location on the lake, but offered convenience to several services in the area. Hiking in the area is good and there are several attractions that merit attention such as South Solon Meeting House, Kingfield area and the antique shopping outside of Skowhegan. The swimming area was well marked and seemed very safe for not having a lifeguard. Clean, clear water was a pleasure to swim in.

I felt that my expectations were more than met and I am planning another time at Embden for next year. I would recommend this property without reservation.

Family time at Lake Embden!

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion at these camps and loved the area and the wonderful 1940's cottages. The tin roofs and pine siding was like stepping back in time. We particularly enjoyed the fact that they are right on the water- stone steps to enter the lake and privacy in a community setting so our kids could also play and romp safely! We could tell these cabins were full of past family fun. Thanks for a relaxing time on Embden.
