It's a long story but I found this hotel by mistake and booked it and what a wonderful mistake it was. Every guest has their own cabin and they are situated as such that they are so private. The screened in porch is fabulous and you can truly spend a lazy day here reading, relaxing or naping! the rooms are... More

This trip was for my 40th bday. When we had to change our original plans and switch last minute to Hidden Pond I think it was th best thing to happen! From the check at the cozy lodge in to the peacefulness of the bungalows. Just perfection. The bungalow was so inviting and clean. Loved the soap smell. Loved the... More

Hidden Pond is absolutely perfect for some relaxing downtime in the woods. We arrived late and were greeted warmly at the main lodge and were soon opening the door to our private bungalow. The bungalow was beautiful, large, and had many thoughtful touches. We immediately felt like never leaving. Our bungalow included a furnished sun porch, fireplace, outdoor shower, and... More

Hard to put into words the special place this is... My wife and I travel quite a bit these days and have stayed in a lot of nice places. Hidden Pond ranks as one of our top 10 places we have ever stayed. We stayed in the bungalows and had a great cabin (twilight) which was very private and had... More

Hidden Pond is a wonderful place to avoid the crowds of the Southern Maine seacoast. The accommodations (all individual lodges) are spacious, luxurious and quite private. A continental breakfast is delivered to your door and the maid service and turn-downs are efficient. No reason to go out other than explore the great coastal scenery near-by or go to the fine...

I have stayed in several elite and very expensive hotels and Hidden Pond is right up there with the best of them. Privacy, service, amenities are all great. The attention to detail is apparent and appreciated.

You'd think by the 10th time at the same place you would be a bit tired of a space.... But honestly it just gets better. We usually stay at the two bedroom cottages in June.....but when we go for our Fall stay we're in the Bungalows. Surrounded amidst gold-crimson trees, the view from the bed is awesome. As you awake... More
