We've visited Hidden Pond many times, beginning in 2008. Every summer we have stayed for a week during high season, and then have stayed for long weekends early in the summer and then in the fall, with 3-4 visits per year. Our children, now 5 and 8, consider Hidden Pond their favorite summer destination. I love many things about Hidden... More

This was our 4th visit to Hidden Pond in one year. We always leave in a hurry to get back there. We only had one night this trip but after being there for only a couple hours it felt like a couple days. The service is always excellent and of course there is Earth. What could be better than to...

We stayed at Hidden Pond for a week. Could be a wonderful place but everyday there were several little things that went wrong. Yes, little things but everyday and considering we were paying over $600 per night it was very frustrating.

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 (16) two-bedroom cottages and (20) one bedroom bungalows, feature Frette linens, fireplaces, flat screen TVs and Bose sound systems with iPod docks, state-of-the-art kitchens in the larger cottages while the bungalows feature a wetbar, 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
