In an area not short on antique furniture, white table cloths and afternoon jazz, the rustic yet luxurious Hidden Pond provides a welcome breath of fresh sea air.

The Atmosphere

Four miles north of the bustling Southern Maine seaside town of Kennebunkport, the cottages and bungalows of Hidden Pond are dotted throughout pretty woodland and feel a world away from the crowds downtown. This is certainly a luxurious, eminently comfortable spot but simple and unpretentious so as not to detract from the real draw; the nature that surrounds you. If summer camp was designed with adults in mind, this might be the dream. Hiking trails snake through the woods, bikes are on hand for adventures further afield and two pools (one for adults only) sit among the trees. End your days roasting s’mores around the bonfire.  

Your Room

Closer to the central lodge building are the two bedroom cottages, perfect for families, and a little further afield the secluded one bedroom cottages. These rustic shingle buildings with screen porches blend into their leafy surroundings perfectly with their simple style belying the luxury inside. 

Food and Drink

Earth, the resort’s fine dining restaurant, draws diners from throughout Kennebunkport and is one of Southern Maine’s finest.
