Embden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Water's Edge Camp, is on pristine Embden Lake, a clean, spring-fed lake measuring 5 miles long, providing panoramic views. A sandy beach and swimming dock are a stone's throw away. Use our canoe and kayak to explore the lake, relax on the deck or take a nap in the hammock!

Enjoy the singing loons and see the soaring eagles. Water's Edge camp is a comfortable haven year round. A private second floor, knotty pine master bedroom with queen-size bed and a double futon even has room for a crib. The large living area, overlooking the lake, features a woodstove, knotty pine trim and skylights.

One guestroom has a double bed and the other a bunkbed with a double futon bottom. All the comforts of home combined with a relaxing atmosphere and majestic scenery make this a perfect retreat.

Rafting Adventure, theater, antiquing and golf courses are nearby. Hunting of deer, bear, moose and upland bird are popular and Embden Lake is well known for its fishing.

Watch the sun rise while the morning mist hovers over the lake, and enjoy the evening while roasting marshmallows in the firepit. You won't soon forget your relaxing vacation at Watersedge Camp.

Please note Watersedge Camp is smoke free. Thank you for your cooperation.

Just as great the second time

This was our second time at Gerry's camp. Once again we were blessed with outstanding weather (including a spectacular storm one evening that blew right down the lake), and outstanding views from the deck. The cabin comfortably fit our two families (4 adults and 4 kids) and had everything we needed to make the stay a home from home. Can't wait to go back next year again.

Another Great Get Away

This is the second year in a row that we have rented this cabin. This will not be our last time. This place is so peaceful and has everything you need. We had a great visit with family and friends. Having a place that you can go, relax, and have everyone come see you is priceless. Thank you to the owners for allowing people to share such a wonderful place with others. We went fishing in the local brooks and had good luck catching brook trout. My wife actually got in the kayak this year and had a great time. That is until she tried to get out at the beach. She got a little bit wet! The view from the deck is amazing and people where we live can not believe how beautiful the area is. The loons were back in full force this year. There is nothing like sitting on the deck in the dark listening to their songs. Words can not convey how much we love going to this cabin. Everything is there that you need. We are very comfortable and relaxed while staying there. If we won the Megabucks I would make an offer.

A perfect Thanksgiving get away

  • Submitted: Jan 27, 2013

I know the Maine lakes are beautiful and inviting in summer, but there is something to be said about the quiet solitude of the off season. Gerry's camp was a perfect place to spend Thanksgiving week. It exceeded our expectations. With a couple of exceptions (which we knew about beforehand), everything we needed to prepare our feast was there in the kitchen. It was cold enough to use the wood-burning stove which made the open-plan living area very warm and cozy. Coming from the city, I'm always amazed at the star-filled night sky. It was spectacular. Early mornings brought beautiful sunrises with mist hanging over the lake.
We spent our days reading, watching dvd's, working a jigsaw puzzle, and exploring the surrounding area. Being hunting season, we saw several deer being weighed at Bait, Bolts, and Bullets in Solon, ME which, as the name infers, carries an eclectic assortment of goods.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to just hang out and relax. The place does have wi-fi which was a nice amenity. Our cell phone carrier, AT&T, provides only spotty service in that part of Maine, which really wasn't an issue. If asked, I would certainly recommend a week on Embden Lake.

Great vacation and fishing

We travel to Maine every summer with our 3 children and dog and this was one of the best vacations we've had. Gerry is very helpful, accessible and timely with information. The cabin was exactly as described, very clean and comfortable and offered all the necessary amenities - as much as I hate doing laundry it was nice not to bring it all home with us. The neighbors (human and canine) were all very friendly. The lake is gorgeous and the fishing is great! We caught and enjoyed several 16 - 18" bass during our stay. There isn't much in the area to do so it is a great place to kick back and relax. We took a drive north, about 1 hour, to Moxie Falls which was well worth the trip. Needless to say none of us wanted to leave. We would definitely return to Embden Pond as well as rent from Gerry again in the future.

Going Home for a Week

We moved to Alabama 11 years ago and have traveled back to Maine about once a year. When we went back to Maine we felt like we had no vacation. We traveled from house to house to visit with family and friends. This camp changed all of this during our last visit. We were able to unpack at one location and enjoy a wonderful camp on one of the best lakes on earth. We found the camp to have everything you needed but found so much more. We could finally relax and enjoy what we miss about Maine; the beauty, serenity, family, and friends. I assure you that this camp has it all. The owner is very polite, the camp has everything you need, and for the first time we had a vacation in Maine. I highly recommend this property and think you will be amazed like us what the property offers.
