We stayed he a couple of years ago and had a great trip. It is very welcoming.Private, quite, and very well maintained. Staff was professional I had to put a later date for my stay, It did not allow a 2012 visit.

I have seen Hidden Pond referred to as "The Ritz Carlton in the woods" I'm a Corporate Event Planner and travel all over the world and there are very few places that I choose to go on vacation. Nothing gets me more excited than going to HP. There's a certain aura when you arrive, that all of your worries and... More

We took my parents to Hidden for their 40th wedding anniversary. It had the perfect mix of rustic elegance that is so in now. Our 2 bedroom cottage was extremely comfortable with a huge screened porch and open living room/kitchen/dining area. The outdoor shower was fabulous. We enjoyed the morning yoga and the evening campfire and my parents went to... More

We had a wonderful 3 day stay in mid October. The whole experience was great. It was fun being able to use the other KRC properties as well. One morning we rode the complimentary bikes from Hidden Pond to The Tides and enjoyed our included breakfast there.
