Truly wonderful and memorable visit. Hidden the woods of Kennebunk, Hidden Pond offers tranquility, cuisine and fantastic hospitality. Each 'bungalow' has its own unique character. Being able to walk to/from Earth, the on premise restaurant, makes the experience all the more enjoyable. The breakfast foods hanging at our front door made for a lasting morning of breakfast in bed, complete... More

I am so pleased to hopefully write the first review of the 2015 season, as once again, the team has hit it out of the park. I am a frequent guest and this stay was amazing as always. I typically travel with my family and stay in the cottages, but was solo for this trip and stayed in a bungalow.... More

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

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

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...
