About Elizabeth Listowich

We live only 18 miles away in Kingfield, and purchased this property as a family get away when our children were just babies. They grew up here, learned to swim right off our dock. We've had many happy memories of our place.

Elizabeth Listowich purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Elizabeth Listowich chose Embden Lake

We've had so many wonderful times here, its time to share our lovely setting with others! Embden is a beautiful lake with lots to offer most anyone. The camp was originally dragged across the ice before the east shore road was even built, in the early 1930's. The old structure was pretty tired, and we were granted permission to rebuild it, keeping it on the same footprint which is only 35' back from the waters edge. The yard enjoys a lovely patio area, as well as a firepit right at the lakes edge. This property has much sentimental value with wonderful family memories made with family and friends for many years. At night we listen to the loons and a local barred owl. We can gaze at the stars and hear the water lapping on the shore.

The swimming is fantastic, with the water clear, cool, and deep. Embden Pond is a very clean spring fed lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The camp is down a narrow classic wooded road, located on 8 private acres with over 330' of lake frontage, so you will have a private setting with your own dock. We have a sunfish and several canoes and kayaks, or bring your own boat and launch it from the public boat launch down the lake. The sunsets are lovely and we can see Sugarloaf Mountain from our own chair-lift swing by the fire pit!

It was very difficult to leave Hyde-Away!!! ... A wonderful August vacation for me and my dog at Embden Pond ... The house and the property exceeded all expectations. A private setting with beautiful views and plenty to do on the pond. It was truly a restful time - I certainly did not miss the TV or WiFi at all!! .. Betty Ann was a gracious host and wonderful to work with - I felt welcome immediately! Already looking forward to returning again!!

Lovely lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Hyde-Away on Embden Lake. The cottage is very cozy but feels so spacious because of the beautiful windows overlooking the lake. The bedrooms all have great views. The grounds and stone patio area is wonderful for sitting outside and enjoying the lake view. Embden has very clean and clear water, perfect for swimming out to the swimming platform. We used the kayaks and canoe multiple times to explore the lake. We also had a campfire one evening for roasting hot dogs and smores of course. The property was very clean and well-maintained as it has been recently renovated. If you want to listen to loons, swim, go fishing, kayak or canoe in a crystal clean lake with an up to date cozy cottage this is a great place. FYI for folks who need wifi or good cell service that is difficult because of the location in Maine. Other than that It is a great place for a lake experience and Betty is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this newly remodeled lovely lake home!

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our week-long stay at Hyde Away and wishing we were still there - could've easily stayed a month. Beautiful cottage, property, view, and location - great property owners to deal with as well. The pictures don't do it justice - must rent, 5 stars!

Exceptional time on Embden Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our stay at Hyde Away cottage on Embden Lake. Everything was not only as described and pictured in the write-up, but it was absolutely perfect. From the cottage itself to the amenities and landscaping around the cottage - it was all so welcoming we didn't want to leave. During the day, we spent time swimming and sitting on the dock reading and listening to the water lap the shoreline. At night we enjoyed sitting around the fire pit roasting marshmallows and listening to the loons. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations or a more relaxing vacation - it was truly spectacular!

Come and enjoy our Hyde - Away! This is a classic Maine camp that has been newly rebuilt to offer all the comforts of home, yet our place still holds the old time charm of a bygone era. One of the first camps on the East Shore of the pond, enjoy the privacy of a large wooded setting with long frontage located in the heart of the western Maine Mountains on beautiful Embden Lake (180' deep and spring fed!) Home to fishing, kayaking, day hiking, mountain and road biking. There are lots of wonderful local places to explore. Enjoy wonderful sunsets from the patio or dock, sit by the campfire at night and listen to the loons. While the lake is deep and clear, the water warms nicely so swimming is a must! Local towns are a short drive away for necessities or to take in a movie. Lakewood Theatre, Golf Course and restaurant are just a short drive away. Come and relax in the woods of Maine, you won't be sorry you came!
