Hidden Pond has many strong attributes. It is in a beautiful, serene and pristine setting. The location is ideal as it is a few minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to town but you are in a very private and rural area. We arrived at 11:30 and were very grateful and surprised that we were allowed to check in...

This is the most amazing place that I have ever stayed! I couldn't imagine booking anywhere else in Kennebunk. The layout of our one bedroom bungalow was impressive, stylish and comfortable. Earth was incredible too. We ordered the chicken for two and it was delicious! I will def try to make this a yearly trip, I was totally impressed all...

Wonderful spot to get away from it all in a luxurious setting. The beds, the screened porches, the delicious food (and the ability to have such incredible food delivered to your cabin!), the setting, the gas fireplaces - everything you need to relax and take a deep breath. Highly recommend going off-season to enjoy the area with fewer people.

Dear Hire9: I am very glad to learn that you found your trip to Hidden Pond to be "perfectly relaxing"! I agree with you that the shoulder months are some of the best months to be at Hidden Pond, and Maine in general. Cooler temperatures and quieter streets - it makes for a nice combination! I hope that you will...

We stayed in the 1 bedroom bungalow which was great. The 2 bedroom cabins were in another area and would have been great if traveling with friends or family. Cabin was comfortable and in a chic rustic style. Screened in porch, fireplace, mini kitchen with mini refrig, coffee pot and tea kettle. The other cabins are near by but not...

A perfect vacation is relaxation and not having to use the car often. A place where from your arrival you think you are in such a beautiful woodland setting far from the crowds, but a few minutes to everything one loves about Maine.

We traveled to Kennebunkport for a meeting and stayed at Hidden Pond. Wow! A fabulous hideaway / get away. It reminded us of our private lodge at Londolozi in South Africa, but Maine-style. All of the staff are professional, relaxed, and super helpful. The appointments are delightful, making every aspect of your staff comfortable and feeling like a real treat!...

Hidden Pond resort is tucked away in the woods about 15 mins from downtown Kennbunkport. It has a number of very large "cabins" that are full-service with kitchenettes. We did not try the restaurant however we stayed there for a wedding onsite and the meals at the wedding were good. It is not walking distance to a beach. Very expensive.

This all suite exclusive hotel exudes charm and worships privacy.

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
