The map is not correct. It shows us at 70W, but we are at 72W.
The name had been changed to KINGS DRIVE when 911 changed all the fire lane numbers to names. The map is old.

Reviews for this vacation cabin rental in Embden Lake, Maine
"I'm so HAPPY!"
July 29, 2015
over July 4th weekend my fella and I stayed at Embden Pond and I may have said "I'm so happy!" about 100 times. it was perfect in every way. the design of the cottage is so delightful. fireworks around the pond. We watched Charles Kurault, Star Wars and Ghost on VHS. I had my first S'more. went canoeing every afternoon. slept like a champ! and drove to Pinkhams for meats and cookies. the news that Norma and Carl are selling the property caused me to reach out to family and friends that they should REALLY consider buying it. sadly, no takers. I'd sell my stamp collection, but it's only worth $23. so my only hope is that the new owners continue renting out the cottages, keep it as beautiful and simple as it is(and affordable!). Thank you for a the best mini-break we've ever had. warm wishes to your family in your new home.

Awesome place, location, and owners!

Not knowing what to expect finding a place online, my wife and I were very impressed with the cabin we rented! It was very well kept. Carl and Norma did a great job keeping everything in great shape and functional. They also have a paddleboat and canoe which were great too. All in all, great trip, great location, great owners. We would definitely go back and definitely suggest to friends!

Our Honeymoon Adventure, A Husbands Surprise
September 18, 2013
We stayed at a wonderful little cabin that far exceeded our expectations. The weekend was a surprise getaway for my fiancÃ©e, and the accommodations were far greater than we could have imagined. The cabin was equipped with everything imaginable to make our stay a once in a lifetime experience. The view of the lake was spectacular and the waterfront area was very inviting. Although we never made it out onto the lake, due to the weather, the setting was fantastic. The warm knotty pine interior of the cabin was an added bonus. The cabin size is perfect for two people, and the creative use of the available space is efficient, well thought out and user friendly. Norma and Carl were great hosts, and we appreciate everything that they did for us. The price was very affordable, and we hope to plan a return trip in the future. This was our first vacation together, and we were both completely pleased and impressed with my choice of locations. The internet listing doesn't even come close to describing the beauty and serenity of the cabins setting. We would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a romantic, peaceful getaway location to relax and enjoy one of Maine's beautiful clear water inland lakes with a mountain view. Bring your food, and leave your worries at home, you won't regret it. Thank you , Norma and Carl! The Kessler's, Charlie and Mary

A little piece of paradise!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Carl and Norma's cottage on the hill! We were only there for two nights and it wasn't enough! We watched movies in the cozy living room at night, ate breakfast on the table by the water in the morning, and took an extensive canoe trip around the perimeter of the lake during the day and took a dip in the lake afterwards. The water is amazing, and the scenery is beautiful (so many mountains!) This cabin is pretty far from the nearest store so I packed us a cooler with all the food we would need for the weekend. The kitchen was very well equipped and we had everything we needed, the gas grill on the deck was really nice to have. Thank you so much Carl and Norma, we had a lovely time and would love to visit again next summer :) Best, Nichole and Christian

This cottage was built by the owner and the workmanship is beautiful. The cottage is clean and cozy and situated on a hill with access to the lake and dock via a small path. The owners are welcoming, but also give you your privacy. I highly recommend this cottage for a stay any time of the year.
Wonderful weekend at the lake

The cabin was clean, had a gorgeous view, and was very thoughtfully stocked. Thanks again for a great weekend, and we hope to come back in years to come!
Excellent Labor Day Weekend

We had a great stay at the cottage on the hill on Embden Pond! The cottage was absolutely spotless and included all of the comforts of home. The lake was very quiet during our stay which made our canoe and pedal boat excursions all the more relaxing. We didn't catch as many fish as we had hoped but all in all it was an excellent way to wind down our summer!

Peaceful, immaculate getaway

This is our third summer visiting Norma and Carl, and it feels like coming home now. We spent 2 wonderful weeks at the cottage - a great place to wind down and get away from it all. The bass fishing off the dock was great as well as the crystal clear water for swimming. The cottage is better equipped than our kitchen at home. We did more exploring on day trips this year, a beautiful ride up hte Old Canada Road to the Provence of Quebec and Moxie Falls. We are already thinking about what dates we will visit next year. Thanks so much, Norma and Carl, for your hospitality. We hope you and your wonderful family have a happy and prosperous year. Sincerely, Karen and Bob Riedl

Beautiful and Serene

We stayed for only 3 nights and it was hardly long enough. As other reviews say, bring the food and supplies you need as the corner market is small, but the cabin was gorgeous! And the view...spectactular. It was a short walk to the lake and we took the canoe out and fished (with no luck) and sat in the sun. It was so relaxing and quiet. The perfect weekend getaway!
Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle

My boyfriend and I spent 5 great nights relaxing, fishing, and kayaking on the pond. It is about a 20-30 minute drive to the nearest store so we packed a cooler with groceries which worked out great. If you are looking for a great place to pick up some great grilling items you have to stop at Kniffins Specialty Meats & Smokehouse. We got some amazing steaks and chops for the grill. Mmmm mmmm! The cottage has everything you need and was super clean. Carl and Norma are great hosts and will tell you all the good spots to hit if you are wondering what other activities there are to do. I went moose watching but had no luck. Next time Carl will show me the good spots! If you jet skis or a boat, this is perfect for you! The pond is so big we barely had any people near us. The people who were around were friendly and respectful of others around them. Hope to have some friends to bring with us next year!

Very nice, quiet, cozy place. The cottage is pretty spacious (ideally for couple), well equipped, clean, and looks inside better than in images. Very nice view from windows. Lake is clear, beautiful for swimming. We also enjoyed using paddle boat. One tip: buy all the staff and food which you want using while vacation in advance, since the near stores are pretty far and the choice there is limited.

Photos do not do the place justice!

The place itself is beyond beautiful, as is the view of the serene lake you have from your bedroom window. The ideal getaway for couples. My boyfriend and I are from NYC and it was exactly what we were looking for--secluded, quiet, comfortable, and beautiful. We couldn't help using the word perfect over and over again to describe our time at this cottage. The cottage is fully stocked with supplies and home necessities, and it's extremely well kept. Not to mention, the owners, Karl and Norma, are super nice. Basically, I can go on and on about how great this place is, but I encourage you to just see for yourself!

This was a perfect place for a quiet weekend for my husband and I. The cabins are situated on the hillside with a great view of the water, but far enough away to mute all the power boats, jet skis, etc. If you are a fussy person, do not worry about the basic brown board look on the outside of the cabins. Inside the cabins are spotless, with pretty knotty pine and berber carpets. The flowers and yard art is beautiful without being too formal. The spot down on the water is private and natural. We took the canoe out but there are a lot of camps on the lake, so we went back to our favorite spot below the cabins.

Excellent place to stay

We have stayed at numerous cabins in Maine. This was by far the best. The cabin is spacious and well appointed. The view out the window is breath taking.
