We made a quick stop and sat on some rocks near the pond to enjoy the tranquility of being surrounded by the mountains. Definitely worth a stop to see.

Jordan Pond is one of the many stops that one can make along Park Loop Road. As I see that most of the negative reviews mention the crowd problems due to crowding, we were lucky on this occasion to have encountered no other people since we arrived there fairly early in the morning (8:30am). We only had time to take... More

My roommate and I took a trip to Jordan Pond House on a cold May day. We ate our pop overs inside, seeing as it was to cold and wet to be out on the lawn. The first pop over was extremely yummy! Very hot, just out of the oven. The second one was sadly not as good as the... More

We had afternoon tea at the Jordan Pond House. We ordered the Blueberry Tea with Popovers. Very good experience but the wait staff seemed hurried and a little unfriendly. Maybe they didn't have time to be friendly, the place was very busy. We didn't have reservations but only had a 10 minute wait. We then walked down to the pond... More

I love this walk. It is about 3 miles around the Pond. One side I consider an easy walk, with the other side more challenging as you climb over rocks/boulders and finish up on boardwalks. This side I would not recommend to anyone who has any walking impairments. Ooe of my favorite walks!

This is an easy yet beautiful hike, however, get their early as the parking lot fills up quickly! If you can head there towards the late afternoon as by around 4 as most people are leaving to go to dinner and you will be able to find parking much easier. The trail itself is 1.5 miles around and half of... More

The trail around Jordan Pond is magnificent. The trail leads you through the trees and right along the water with beautiful views of all kinds. The trail on the west side of the pond may be difficult for smaller children due to the boardwalk and boulders. Otherwise, it was the best hike we experienced.

Came here on the only day it rained. After hiking some on Cadillac Mountain, I was wet and cold. Came to Jordan's Pond, to try their Popovers and tea. Very, Very good. Highly recommend this place for couples, families, etc.

We hiked the entire perimeter of the Jordan Pond known as the Jordan Pond Loop which is about 3.5 miles and takes approximately 2 to 2.5 hours to complete. The water is clear and calm as it touches the rocky shore. It sounds as peaceful as it looks. There are wooden planks to walk on covering a portion of the... More

The restaurant had not set their tables up for the season so my family had the lawn chairs mostly to ourselves to enjoy the view! What a beautiful view, we played some lawn games and had a picnic lunch. Walked a bit of the path on east side of pond until we got to detour for repairs and our stroller... More
