I travel and stay in luxury hotels and resorts over 100 nights a year. I will tell you there is not a better place to stay in Maine and quite possibly in the US than Hidden Pond. I have stayed at Hidden Pond one to two weeks a year for the last six years and it is my families favorite... More

Hidden Pond continues to provide a wonderful experience year after year. This year we tried a two bedroom cottage, and I fell in love with it. I like the separation of having the living area and bedroom on separate floors. The property has also increased the number of bikes they have, and I was able to always locate one to... More

We spent Columbus Day weekend at Hidden Pond. Light breakfast of muffins and coffee delivered each morning to our cottage. Fixings for S'mores by the outdoor fire each evening. Bikes available to use, pick a bouquet of flowers from the garden and enjoy. Close to Kennebunkport and an easy drive to Portland. On site restaurant, Earth, is not to be... More

This place does not disappoint! This resort is very private, peaceful, and secluded. It is approximately 6 miles north of the hustle and bustle of Dock Square. We stayed in a 2-bedroom cottage for 3 nights in October. My kids loved being able to bike around the property and bike to the beach. They also enjoyed the campfire and s'mores... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed here for two nights. Really private, quiet and well done overall. Earth was a real experience. Food was very good, but the atmosphere was very unique. Would be a great place for a special evening out. As others have stated, the breakfast pastries were a bit underwhelming, but the stocked refrigerator... More

My sister recommended Hidden Pond to us after staying there this summer with her family. We basically copied her itinerary and had the best time ever.
