Popovers satisfy!

Beauftiful setting, and we came for the tea and popovers, as people have been doing for nearly a century. Great experience despite the misty rain.

This pond is very clean and is used as reservoir for the villages nearby. There is a loop hike around the lake on wooden paths, put there to avoid spoiling the soil when walking. It is quite crowded but as always for the first half mile, while afterwards it becomes a wonderful and intimate experience, hopefully on a sunny day

Clear water with visibility depth of 46 feet. No swimming allowed but well worth seeing. If you visit, you must also stop by Jordan's Pondhouse for a bite. Very relaxing atmosphere with the best lobster rolls. Serve alcoholic beverages as well. Staff is extremely friendly. Felt like fine dining. Can't wait to visit again.

The park was extremely crowded for our late summer visit. We were able to get late afternoon reservations for tea. We were served on the lawn under one of the brightly colored umbrellas. The views were spectacular. The popovers were so good that I was inspired to make them at home. The blueberry jam was unforgettable. Who could ask for... More

The hike around Jordan Pond was the highlight of our time in Acadia National Park. If you are going to do the walk, be aware that the right side (looking from Jordan Pond House) is a pretty easy walk. The left side of the pond is more strenuous with a rustic boardwalk and some sections where you'll need to climb... More

If you want to stretch your legs and get refueled at the same place, Jordan Pond is the place. It's a good one-two punch for beauty and cuisine. It's on the Park Loop Road, easy to find, and though there a several parking lots close by, parking can be a bit tricky. It's best to get there early before the... More

Nice relatively easy hike around the lake. Took about hour and half. Great views of bubble mountains across the pond, really a lake. Had lunch at the Jordan Pond house, excellent ford and service. Parking was a bit of a challenge tho.

This is the middle aged, overweight flatlander review. The Jordan Pond Trail is a 3.3 mile loop around...Jordan Pond! This really didn't feel like 3.3 miles. We got up early & were parking in the North lot by 0730ish. We ended up to be the 3rd car parked. We followed the boat ramp road to access the trail. You can... More

We stopped at the Jordan Pond and walk to the trail. There is a sign that explain about this water is for community to use and do not step in the pond. However, I saw many people walked in without reading a sign and step in the water. We have to tell them to read the sign. It's a beautiful... More
