My husband and I love this part of Maine and came across a 2 night stay with dinner deal at Hidden Pond/Earth restaurant. We knew nothing about either but decided to check it out. We could not have been more pleasantly suprised!!! Our bungalow was beautifully appointed, with champagne, berries & ice cream waiting for us (this was an add...

This resort is excellent value at the price range it is in. Cheap is cheap. If you want 250 a night then the double occupancy rat motel with your cat parked on the pavement out front of the door is your best bet. You can't find a resort of this caliber with the feeling of a real cottage and the...

We just stayed for a week at Hidden Pond with our two kids, 8 and 5. What a perfect place Hidden Pond is--to tell you how good it was, before we departed, we made our reservation for next year. There is so much to do with the kids and having reciprocity with The Tides (sister property that is on the...

We loved our stay here. It's conveniently close to Kennebunkport yet you feel secluded and remote while at the resort. Our kids had so much fun making s'mores at the bonfire every night. We also experienced the water pressure issue, but felt like the staff was responsive and friendly. We will definitely return.

We had a delightful stay at Hidden Pond for a mini-moon. The property is incredibly beautiful and there are wonderful touches throughout such as smores by a bonfire at night, private outdoor showers in your bungalow, etc. I would heartily recommend a stay here for anyone looking for a romantic get-away. The only hesitation? I had several calls with staff...

My wife and I stayed here on our last vacation before our first born arrives. While we weren't able to utilize all if the physical activities offered (biking, paddleboard, etc) we found the resort to be a wonderfully peaceful experience. We would definitely go back if we decide to visit coastal maine again.

Just returned from a week in Hidden Pond with mixed feelings. The location is beautiful, just outside Kennebunkport in the very nice Cape Porpoise area. Hidden Pond itself is quite and secluded (in a good way), and the homes themselves are spacious, clean and well-appointed. The beds are enormous and luxurious. For the price, though, there are a few things...
