We stayed for four nights at a one bedroom cottage. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, everything was perfection. The cottages have a wonderful screened in porch, and the main portion had a lovely sitting area, fireplace, TV, comfortable bed, and lovely bathroom complete with an outdoor shower ( I never used the indoor) Each morning,...

My husband, daughter and I stayed at Hidden Pond for the very first time. The resort is absolutely wonderful. The decor is so warm and inviting, we immediately felt right at home. We stayed in one of the cottages. They are strategically set perfectly where there is so much privacy. The outdoor shower is always a treat and the screened... More

My husband and I just returned from a fantastic weekend at Hidden Pond staying in a bungalow. Honestly, the reviews/pics online don’t do this place justice. It’s amazing! The rooms are well-appointed like a high-end 5 star resort, but secluded and private so you feel peaceful right away. The bungalows are spacious with a screened-in porch, sitting area and sleeping...

We cant say enough of this place. This is our 2nd visit in the past 3 years. Hidden Pond is a treasure as well as The Tides. The staff are 11 out of 10. If Maine is in your area, then Hidden Pond is the ONLY destination in Kennebunkport

My husband and I visited Hidden Pond for the first time this summer, along with his parents, and our two daughters (8 months & 4.5 years). We got to experience three different types of rooms during our stay, because we booked last-minute and there were limited cottages available (his parents stayed in the same lovely bungalow the entire trip -...

This was our 3rd stay at The Hidden Pond, a serene wonderful resort in the woods of Maine near Goose Neck Beach. The lovely bungelows have screened in porches with very high end designer fabric, furniture and a stone fireplace that flicks on with a turn of a switch. The outdoor shower is a great touch which we used every... More

Dear Ellen: We are so pleased that you have now stayed with us at Hidden Pond three times. Thank you for your continued support!

When developing Hidden Pond, it was felt that an outdoor shower provided a quintessential "Maine experience" to each and every cottage. It... More

My 2 daughters treated me to a fabulous weekend at Hidden Pond. The bungalow we stayed in was so beautiful and luxurious.

I had been told this was such an incredible place and it is in some ways if you want a small cottage with quiet surroundings. I over looked a small pond and at night I did enjoy the frogs singing and nature was alive. The room service is just ok as the workers seem distracted and the breakfast was not... More

My wife was recommended this "retreat" from a co-worker who stayed here before. Only a hour and a half drive from Boston, this lovely resort was just what we needed for my wife's birthday. This property is only a few minutes drive from the coast of Maine and downtown Kennebunkport, and it is literally "hidden" inside the forest. The staff... More

Dear Nikki_Black: Thank you for you review from your recent retreat to Hidden Pond! Happy belated birthday to your wife. Many people enjoy our Kennebunkport location as it feels just far enough away from home, yet accessible and "close enough" when the time comes to venture home. Between the well-appointed bungalow, memorable pasta at Earth and hidden location, it sounds... More
