We just returned from Hidden Pond and have promised ourselves to try to return very soon. So many superlatives: the meal at Earth (the best foie gras I have ever had), our bungalow, our massages, the grounds, the staff who were very gracious, helpful and welcoming. It is truly a magnificent spot in an equally magnificent setting. The gardens are...

Dear Toni S: I hope that you do return! Hidden Pond is just as fantastic in May as it is in September, if you're looking for a similar month to come. We'll be sure to keep foie on the menu when you happen to return. I'll send your compliments to the chef! Thank you for your high praise and for...

Booked a 2 day mid-week celebration for our 30th anniversary, and it was exceptional. A private bungalow to ourselves in the woods, complete with screen porch and chaise for toasting, a large bedroom with high ceilings, sitting area, and fireplace, and an outdoor shower for two. The friendly staff arranged transportation to a great restaurant nearby, but when they came...

We were fortunate enough to win this weekend stay at Hidden Pond which made this trip all the better. :-). The accomodations were top notch.

We found Hidden Pond by googling best b&b in Kennebunkport, and we fell in love with it. You truly feel like you are away from the world. This place has NYC sophistication/high quality expecations and a 5 star rocky mountiain lodge feel. We loved the bicycles, bungalows, private lounge chairs, afternoon coffee and the Earth restaurant as well. Also, how...

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
