I readily admit, I'm a "selective" traveler. Yes, I want to see the local sites, try the area's cuisine, etc. but the fact is, if the accommodations are not as clean as my home, I don't want to sleep there. It just makes for sleep-deprived, cranky travelers when the on-site food is bad, the bed is lumpy, the sheets are... More

Wow, this place is fantastic! Romantic and quiet, tucked in the middle of the woods, with perfectly appointed rooms! Pictures don't do justice. The room is spacious and comfortable( especially the bed!). We loved the outdoor shower. Breakfast consists of fresh fruit, quiche, pastry, and delicious coffee, placed by your door promptly at 8 am. Staff is friendly and helpful.... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay in a two bedroom cottage called Lucky. Everything about this place is spectacular! The food, the grounds, and the service are wonderful. Each morning my kids cut fresh flowers from the garden and made an arrangement for our cottage. You must eat at Earth, the food is delicious. The nightly s'mores at... More

Dear nfrith: "Lucky", you...I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage! It's one of my personal favorites and was created by a dear friend and local designer. I am happy to hear that you took advantage of the cutting garden as well as the nightly bonfires. These are some of the most simplistic, yet memorable, components of the resort. Earth is a... More

We have been going to Hidden Pond every summer since it first opened .

This was an amazing place to stay! Well worth the extra money, compared to other inns and hotels here. Breakfast brought every morning to your door. Outside and inside showers (my husband loved this). Pictures on website do not do the resort justice. You can walk to the beach or ride the bicycles they have for guests - very close.... More

We just returned from our trip to Hidden Pond - though my husband and I have been to Maine several times and consider it one of our most favorite places on the planet, this was our first trip taking the kids and our first trip to Hidden Pond.

I would have given this property a five-star rating, because of the amazing setting and beautifully appointed property. But I do have some issues with the service - particularly the room service. We would definitely stay here again as the bungalows, pool areas, lodge and restaurant were all top notch. Such beautiful, understated elegance. We absolutely loved the size of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hidden Pond is a private retreat for those seeking high-end accommodations and personalized services in a relaxed and natural setting. The one and two-bedroom cottages, and new one bedroom bungalows, feature Frette linens, fireplaces, flat screen TVs and Bose sound systems with iPod docks, state-of-the-art kitchens, landscaped outdoor showers and decadent screened porches allowing inside living to virtually extend out amongst the forest.There have been two fantastic additions to the property in 2011. Earth, a collaboration with James Beard Award Winning Chef and Restauranteur, Ken Oringer, is an al fresco restaurant focusing on farm to fork freshness. Heirloom vegetables and herbs are picked daily from the surrounding gardens, and thoughtfully incorporated into both food and beverage menu offerings. Another added amenity is the new Tree Spa, featuring three spa treatment rooms nestled in the trees. The Tree Spa is available to guests only and their services will further ensure your visit is nothing but blissful. ... more   less
