Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice. It had everything that we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone. I am planning a trip back this winter for some ice fishing.

There's plenty of sleeping accomodation, very good kitchen equipment and plenty of it and only one o

  • 4 of 5

The cabin will sleep 7 comfortably and the in house facilities are in very good shape (kitchen stove, frig, Wi-Fi, TV, etc.). As cook I found the kitchen to be quite adequate for preparing meals for five hungry fishermen. Using the toilet and shower takes some planning and some" self-control" when there's a crowd in residence. Everything was quite clean and the beds are comfortable. The cabin is not on the water. It sits about 75 yards away from the shore line with a number of other cabins between it and the lake shore. It is located immediately adjacent to the roadway. There is some early morning road noise so if you have late sleepers they might complain---too bad. They should be up and about early while in Maine! All in all, a very good rental for adults, maybe not so much if there are a lot of young kids in the group.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week wonderful week at the cottage for a family reunion. The cottage was lovely, very open layout with a spacious feel. Embden Pond is beautiful! We did not mind the walk to the water. We enjoyed barbecuing on the deck as well as the shared fire pit out front in the evening. Carleton provided excellent customer service and was quick to get back to us on any questions. Highly recommend!

Great relaxing stay in Embden Maine!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the very spacious, clean cabin. The area is very quiet and relaxed. Near the lake, we expected a lot of traffic or noise but there really wasn't. We would absolutely stay here again!
