Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of every day life? Dreaming about your next vacation? Us too :)
Make your vacation plans now for summer and fall 2017 and start dreaming up ways to spend your days (we suggest long and lazy, but that's just us!).
Our lake house on Embden Pond is the perfect place to reconnect and rejuvenate.
Enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking, campfires, board games, and movie nights. Catch up on a good book. Take an afternoon nap. If long and lazy is not your thing, there is also golf, theatre, white water rafting, zip lining, hiking, and biking nearby—so many options for every type of vacationer.
Our lake house is located on Embden Pond, in Embden, Maine—about 1 hour North of Augusta in the Kennebec mountain and lakes region of Maine. The lake is 1600 acres, 6 miles long, 2 miles wide, and 160' deep in its deepest spots. Embden is one of the cleanest bodies of water in Maine—great for swimming—with plenty of small mouth bass and trout—a fisherman's paradise! There are a few pairs of loons that return every summer. Enjoy other wildlife such as bald eagles, moose, ducks and turtles.
The house rests on Embden's favored Northern East shore—perfect for full day sun and the most amazing sun sets. Another highlight? The night sky chock full of stars that you just can't see at home.
We have about 100' of shore frontage and a huge swimming dock. We offer kayaks for your use out on the lake. If you are looking for a busy lake like Winnipesaukee or Sebago, Embden is not the place for you. Our lake is quiet and peaceful, yet not secluded. A true gem in the Vacationland state of Maine.
Indoors, the house has three bedrooms (one queen, one full, two twins), plus a pull out couch. There are 2 1/2 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, a HUGE 26' long outdoor deck, barbecue grill, fire pit, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, DVD players, movies, board games, books, internet….we have tried to anticipate your needs and make your stay as easy as possible. You will be pleased to know that the house is super CLEAN as well!
There are also plenty of day-trip excursions nearby (if you are so inclined) such as:
-Sugarloaf USA: hiking, biking, golfing and zip lining
-Northern Outdoors: white water rafting and fly fishing
-Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor: offers charming boutique-like shopping and restaurants a well as lobster boating, whale watching, hiking and bike tours up the mountain and so much more.
-Moosehead Lake: Water or air? Take a one hour and fifteen minute drive over to Moosehead Lake for a four-hour canoe moose safari, where the wildlife outnumbers people 3:1. If you prefer to see the beautiful 30 mile long lake from the air, rent a sea plane.
We look forward to having you stay in our home! Happy vacation planning!+ More
