We have been coming to Jordan's Pond for 20 years now and will continue for as long as able! It's such a friendly and relaxing place to eat and the waitstaff are usually from other states and even other countries! Their popovers are so delicious and such an excellent menu with a great variety to choose from! We have NEVER... More

Beautiful view and a short walk. We ate at the Jordon Pond house but this is not necessary to see the pond. It is worth the stop.

Loved this trail. Our family parked at the opposite end of the pond as the Jordan Pond House. We hike one shore to the JPH, stopped for a visit & snack, and then hiked the opposite shore. Therefore, we did the entire Pond. It was a great hike. I believe most families (even with smaller children) could enjoy this experience.... More

Don't miss this beautiful spot...hike or bike! Even though it is a long bike ride to the pond...it was sooo worth it! The carriage trails are amazing and there is spectacular beauty around every turn! The comforting popovers and blueberry hot tea and garden salad with a stunning view of the pond is all that you needed to continue the... More

We didn't have enough time to hike the trails at Jordon Pond but stopped off to enjoy the view and climb on the ever present rocks. The water is so clear it looks like glass. We spoke to several hikers at the trail head and they said it was a nice easy loop. The lake is very peaceful - you... More

This was a lovely hike following a previous days arduous hike. This was a stark contrast. 3/4 of it was flat and leisurely. The other quarter involved both plank walking and some boulders to walk over. On that basis not recommended as a full walk for folks with mobility issues. Though easily could do first half of walk and double... More

Love taking the trail around the pond. Great views and a pretty easy hike minus the short climb over the rocks. There are 3 detours this year so make sure to wear closed toed shoes.

Tried to get up and out early to get some sunrise shots of the bubbles from Jordan Pond, not having done my research properly, I missed sunrise. I was there by 5.15 am but sunrise was 4.30 am, as this is one of the first places in the USA that sunrise occurs. Despite this... The pod is beautiful, and I... More

The restaurant was excellent. Expensive of course for lunch but our food was plentiful and delicious. The popovers with strawberry jam were as good as I have had. We had a beautiful day to sit outside on the lawn. My chicken salad was fresh and flavorful. The kids liked the apples chips. Nice wait staff. Hard to find parking. Let... More

You get a beautiful view from the Jordan House viewing area. The mountains (the Bubbles) are beautiful - overlooking the lake. It is a nice spot to get a drink and something light to eat. I did not care for their vegetarian options for meals, so on our second visit, we just had popovers, a cheese plate, and plenty of... More
