Embden Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft with double bed, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6+

The feeling we get as soon as we arrive at the cabin is indescribable. 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. Embden Pond is pristine, spring fed and is 5 miles long. This Pond, 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 enough for many people to cook and prepare meals at the same time. The long countertop allows for serving buffet style. which is a Maine tradition. The gas grill sits right off the kitchen for easy access. Everything you need is there, so if you are flying in, just pick up your food and water... and you are set.

About The Owner

My husband Norm and I have been married for 11 years, and live in a quaint old bungalow style home here in St. Petersburg Florida. We have a wonderful life in Florida with all the tropical beauty, but we are truly at our happiest at the Cabin on the Lake. I have been a self employed general contractor since 1995 and Norm has been in the boating business most of his life restoring and building boats. One of our favorite things to do is sharing our Cabin with family and friends in the summers, but some of our special times are spending Christmas’s there.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose Embden

My husband Norm who is a Maine native introduced me to Embden Pond 11 years ago. I felt at peace as soon as I saw this lake. Norm was lucky enough to spend his childhood summers on this lake, and he has maintained those life long friendships. As he is an avid boater, we enjoy the public boat ramp when needed. His parents were actually friends with the original owners of our cabin. 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 music 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. Friends have also stayed there and traveled the coast of Maine during the days and came back for relaxing evenings. The moment we saw this cabin, we fell in love with it and knew it was meant to be. It is the only place we can truly relax.

What makes this cabin unique

What we enjoy most about our cabin has to do with its scenic outdoor surroundings which is abundant with natural beauty and wildlife. Whether we are out in it, or just viewing it from within, there is always something to take in. We love to wake early and have our coffee on our dock while the morning mist hovers over the lake. We can watch the hummingbirds while sitting at the kitchen table. I love to relax with a good book on our deck, nestled in one of our overstuffed rockers while the sounds of nature add to the ambiance. We feast on lobster, steamers and corn on the cob at the picnic table next to the lake. Grilling out and night time campfires are a favorite way to spend an evening. We lie on our backs looking up at the stars at night, which are so vast and bright without the street lights. Canoeing, swimming, cycling and hiking are just a few favorites. We enjoy just dropping the canoe into the Lake from our property on the wood ramp built of logs. I enjoy baking bread, which I would never do at home or baking whoopee pies, which are a Maine delight. We keep lots of cookbooks in the cabin for you to use when dining in, but a homemade lunch out is a real treat at the general store nearby. We walk the property and pick wild blackberries. We also enjoy sleeping with the windows open and listening to the loons at night.

Perfect Lakeside Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Tall Pines is the perfect Maine getaway for families. If you are looking for a relaxing enviorment, time to spend with the kids away from electronics, canoeing, swimming in a clean lake (it is a BIG lake) without a lot of boat traffic, a huge outside fire pit and a house with everything you need to hunker down this is the place. I just spent a week with 3 teenagers at Tall Pines and never heard a complaint about being bored. We all had a great time.

If you are looking for a hotel-type 5-star accommodation, Tall Pines isn’t for you. But, if you are looking to time away from the busyness of today’s world and the desire to truly RELAX, Tall Pines was made for YOU. For families, there is nothing better than evenings by the fire, time playing cards or a board game to reconnect and communicate (if you have teens: without the competition of a smartphone :p ) Camp was like stepping back into time spending summers camping lakeside with my family. Kathe & Norm have thought of everything, from all the necessities in the kitchen (and some we’d never thought of), to flashlights, batteries, games, cut firewood! and so much more. After our week, we were well rested and prepared to reenter the work-a-day world until next time.

The way life should be!

If you are looking for peace and tranquility, look no further! Embden Lake spring fed, is said to replenish itself 3 times a year making it one of the cleanest lakes in Maine. The cottage was darling, complete with all the comforts of home. We spent days lying on floats in the surprising warm water. Nights with campfires and marshmallows. I will also have to note that the owners could not have been more helpful. A definite place to visit and visit again I hope!

Charming cabin, thoughtfully equipped with perfect deck and dock out into the water, which was clean, clear and ideal for swimming and canoeing. Embden Pond is a very large lake, and there are wonderful sunset views from the cabin. I wish I was still there!

A Memorable Week on Embden Pond

  • 5 of 5
Spent seven beautifully peaceful and relaxing days at Embden Pond. The weather was glorious and warm …. it always seemed that just when it was perhaps a bit too warm, the wind would drift down from the surrounding mountains, dance across the lake and ripple through the tall pines that surround the camp… offering lovely relief from the heat. The camp, most aptly named "Tall Pines on Embden Pond", was very comfortable and afforded most every convenience. Enjoyed the wildlife….most particularly a baby loon just learning to dive on its own. Thanks for allowing us to share your “happy place”. We have returned home with lovely memories and anxiously await a return visit next year!
