Embden is a spring-fed lake, or "pond" located in the central mountains of Maine, just minutes from the world famous Sugarloaf Ski area, which is the only above tree-line ski resort on the East Coast. This is a scenic, four-season nature area with lots of activities for everyone. Winter is a busy time around Embden, but in summer when things quiet down you'll still find plenty of things to do such as swimming, boating, fishing for salmon and trout, hiking, mountain biking, golf and tennis. Winter brings an abundance of natural snow and crowds for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice fishing and sledding. The clear waters of Embden Lake set against the tranquil mountains offers spectacular scenery in spring, summer, fall and winter. The warm summer months also brings folks out to the local county fairs and summer theater. Fall is a popular time for hunting or sightseeing along the country back roads and hills, which are ablaze with color. The small towns and villages around the lake are great for antiquing and exploring gift shops that feature works by local artisans. Shopping and dining can be found in many of the small towns and villages that surround Embden Lake, or at the base of the village at Sugarloaf.
