Easy living in Embden

If you're searching for a little rest and relaxation in the backcountry of Maine, Embden vacation rentals could be the prize. They dot the banks of leafy Embden Pond and hide between spear-like pine trees in the New England woods. Often timber-built and spilling out onto lakefront gardens where boats and jetties poke into the water, they are a fine place to dust off that novel, go fishing, boating, hiking or biking. Come winter, you can swap all that for cozy evenings by the fire and days of cross-country skiing in the forests.

A taste of the outdoors in Embden

Embden vacation rentals are the perfect escape to the country. To kick start the day, you can go for morning yoga sessions while overlooking the rising Maine mountains, or leisurely boating trips across the waters of countless ponds and rivers. The forests promise loads of hiking trails and nature walks, while winter brings cross-country skiing and snowshoeing to the woodland paths. Of course, you could opt to do nothing, too. Just watching the world go by is one of the great pleasures in these New England country lodges.

The rainy-day treats of Embden

If you don't fancy snuggling up with a cup of tea and a crackling wood fire when the New England rains fall across Embden Pond, you could opt for a trip to nearby Skowhegan, instead. That small and charming little backwater is peppered with hearty Maine pubs and inns. It's also the home of the Skowhegan History House Museum & Research Center. The collections, there, tell an interesting tale of regional heritage, including ornamental gardens, vintage furniture and exhibits that chronicle daring expeditions to Quebec back in the 1700s.

The gorgeous fall of Embden

There's arguably no more famous time of year in Maine than fall and it's no different for Embden. In September and October, Embden vacation rentals in the woods fill with people seeking a glimpse of the gorgeous changing of the colors, when the surrounding forests go from green to orange to yellow as the season runs its course. If you're coming to hike and boat on Embden Pond, summer might be a better pick – it's typically warm and dry between June and August. Winter, from December to March, means snow and subzero temperatures – a time for skis and scarves.

Embden is surrounded by forests and lakes

Little Embden is a land of forests and lakes and rivers, hidden deep in the New England woods in the western half of Maine state. The largest body of water is Embden Pond, which sits between the wiggling Carrabassett River and Kennebec River. It's fringed with pines and oaks and all sorts of greenery, and one of the most popular places to go in search of Embden vacation rentals. You'll stay on the doorstep of boating jetties and fish-filled ponds, encircled by nature trails and snowshoeing routes.
