The short trails around the pond have nice views and are easy walking. If you go, don't miss getting the famous popovers though!

As part of a trip we went here - it is so peaceful and serene. The scenery is gorgeous and I took several photos. Definitely not a place for noisy children and we were lucky - there were none. It is kept in immaculate condition and worth a walk to get there.

A great spot to grab some of the famous Pop-Overs with the specialty tea. If you like deep black-tea, the Jordan Pond special blend cannot be missed.

The walks along the edge of the lake are really rewarding and one doesn't have to go far to be away from the crowds around the visitor centre. With Autumn colours developing effectively and a calm day, it was easy to get great photos. It is a marvellous place.

This is a great place to pull in, have a drink and then wander right round the pond taking in all of the views as you go.

Fabulous, serene, peaceful area. Just wasn't enough time for everything. I will return next fall. Too much to see.

We love Jordan Pond! It is an oasis of ultimate serene beauty and tranquility. Clear water and gorgeous green mountains surrounding the pond make you forget about all your troubles: it is the best cure from our busy city life and hectic work. We especially love sitting at the lawn chairs after 5-6 hours hike in the mountains looking at... More

We were fortunate to be here at the end of the busy season and near-peak color season. We encountered only five or six other people, and enjoyed a simple breakfast here after seeing the sunrise from Cadillac Mountain. We sat on a stone bench built at the end of the pond to recognize this favorite spot of someone who enjoyed... More

My husband and I enjoyed lunch here after 4 hours of hiking. The meal was great, and I really enjoyed the popovers with strawberry although we had them in the dining room rather than the lawn. That's what we get for vacationing in October. :) Service was good...drinks and food were timely.
