Reviews for this vacation home rental in Embden Lake, Maine
August 23, 2014
I planned a surprise 3-night stay for my husband, a quiet get-away for the two of us. He had no idea where we were going until we were on the property....and of course, he loved it! The Daly's cottage is clean, neat and homey. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary appliances and cookware. There is a gorgeous view of Emden Lake from the living room and master bedroom. The lake was a little colder than I expected in August, but that certainly didn't stop us from swimming and enjoying the kayaks. We had some great strolls down the camp roads and enjoyed watching the numerous hummingbirds at the feeders. We were very impressed with the many amenities and would definitely choose this property again. In just three days, some wonderful memories were created.
Beyond relaxation - beautiful.

This was the most relaxing and peaceful vacation. The lake was absolutely beautiful and having access to the owners kayaks and small aluminum boat was an added feature. My family had a great time swimming, kayaking, and relaxing by the shore. Sitting on the shore and watching the sunsets and listening to the loons was great. I have 2 children and this was an excellent spot, as the lake is not busy and there are not a lot of boats speeding by. I would recommend this location to others looking for a great place to kick back and relax. We had one rainy day while there and my kids enjoyed playing board games and making puzzles - all of which where provided, and the kids thought it was great to swim in the rain.
Perfect spot to relax!

The Daly cottage is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy one of Maine's pristine lakes. The cottage is well appointed and very clean. Amenties provide for fun on the lake and the deck and screen room are perfect for outdoor meals and relaxation. Sunsets from the deck and dock are amazing! The kitchen has everything you need including a lobster pot! The Dalys have thought of everything to ensure their guests enjoy their time at Embden and feel right a home. We will be back! I grew up nearby and spent many a summer at my grandfather's cottage on the West Shore. Our week at Embden was a wonderful homecoming.
Rest and Relaxation
July 31, 2012
The home was very clean and had just about every little extra thing we may have forgotten to bring ourselves. In fact the owners provided many extras that you don't normally find with vacation rentals. The furnishings also were above average, as it appeared that some recent upgrades had been made. The pond itself was clear, clean, and very refreshing, without being too cold or too hot. The location was very quiet and relaxing. Midweek there are very few motorized boats on the pond, so it was very quiet and peaceful. My wife and I came away from our week's stay feeling stress-free and well rested. It was just what we were looking for, as we didn't want to be on one of the crowded, noisy, more well-known lakes. I will definately recommend this rental to my friends and family.

This vacation was amazing. The owners are extremely professional and the property is pristine. We spent 4 days swimming,fishing,sunbathing and exploring the outdoors. The memories will be unforgettable and the property was enjoyed by all. There were 4 adults and 3 children with plenty of room for all. Thank You to the Dalys for taking such good care of their home.

Our family of four (2 teen boys) had a magnificent vacation! We were extremely pleased with our stay at this beautiful lake cottage! From the beautiful home to the magnificent surroundings, we couldn't have been more comfortable. The cottage is well stocked with all the little things that can make a difference, from games and puzzles to the seasonings and citronella candles. The kayaks and boats were well maintained and offered hours of fun. Ending our nights by the campfire, or in the beautiful screen room left us with nothing but sweet dreams. Waking to the beautiful views from the master bedroom was amazing. I can say that besides more time, there was nothing we needed.
Comfortable and fully equipped home & CLEAN lake
September 3, 2011
Stayed 2 weeks, 8/20-9/3. What a wonderful, well kept, completely homey comfortable house! There was absolutely nothing we needed to enjoy this beautiful lake that wasn’t here. Kitchen completely equipped, COMFORTABLE beds, beautiful deck, crystal clear swimming water, privacy, accommodating owner and internet. That sky at night – felt like if I was just one foot taller I could touch a star! And the lake.. and the loons, and the clean air that felt like it was washing away the dirt of urban life. We love Maine and are grateful our first opportunity to stay here was at this lovely home. Thank you!

A Great Family Vacation!
September 1, 2009
We stayed here in August 2009 with another family. We had a great time! The house is very well-kept & accomodating. The view is worth the trip alone! We had fun on some day trips in the area to Moxie Falls & Moosehead Lake. But, the kids liked the lake the best. We spent most of the time in or on the lake. The water was very refreshing & the availability of the boats was an added bonus. The vacation provided the peace we needed to recharge our batteries before the busy school year starts! Thank you!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights on our yearly vacation alone together without kids. It was just what the doctor ordered. We loved the home, lake, layout, boats, etc. The owner was very professional and fair in all ways. I highly recommend this as a vacation getaway! Nice and quiet...loved seeing the fireflies come out in the eve and the sun setting over the water-also hearing the loons. Great bike trails and canoe opportunities closeby as well.

I just returned from a tour of duty to the Middle East. Desiring to reunite with my family away from the distractions of home, I discovered this charming lake house searching the internet. Not only was it the perfect size for our family of six, it was clean and in great shape. The paddled kayaks and raced each other across the north end of the lake. We played ping pong and board games when we weren't outside. We grilled steaks and pork chops on the deck while enjoying beautiful sunsets. After dark we gathered around the outdoor fire pit and made smores. There was plenty to do in the area as well. We drove to a nearby orchard where macintosh apples were ripe and ready for picking. We also drove up to Moxie Falls for a picnic, and on up to Jackman. The leaves were just beginning to turn, making the lovely landscape that much more beautiful. It was the most relaxing vacation I've had in years. You can bet that we'll be back next year & beyond to rent this wonderful lake ho
Thank you for our stay at your lovely cottage. You have beautiful surroundings here. We really enjoyed the moment-to-moment changes in the sky, land, and water. So pretty!
Thank you again.

"My brothers and I stayed at the Lake House for a total of three nights,
but with the peace, quiet, and relaxation we enjoyed, when we got back
to the 'real world', we felt like we have just gotten back from a year
long sabbatical. This place is perfect - it's in a great, quiet
location yet the house itself contains great modern amenities. Embden
Pond itself is really a jewel in the middle of Maine - I have no idea
why I had never heard of it prior to the trip. We can't wait to go

Again, we had a wonderful week at your cabin! Your home is beautiful and functional - all we had to bring in was groceries! The crystal clear lake was the best, though, and we spent all our time outdoors on and in the water!!! The ping pong table was a hit with all of us in the evening, and our kids are now bugging their grandma to dig her table out of storage! Our family came home reconnected, relaxed and with great memories!!! We hope to be back next summer!
