A five-hour drive by car from New York, quiet Kennebunkport combines a gorgeous coastline, an open beach and preppy style. A short drive along the winding coastline, Hidden Pond is a romantic, upscale resort with 36 bungalows and cottages spread across 60 sprawling acres. There’s a magical, village-like vibe from the spa with treehouse-style treatment rooms to the farm-to-fork restaurant, Earth, helmed by James Beard Award–winning chef Ken Oringer.
Bed and Bath
The 36 private cottages and bungalows are all individually designed: Silent Pine for a “splash of retro woodsiness”; Periwinkle, where “Maine woods meets vibrant Caribbean”; and more. Bungalows are a spacious 600 square feet, with private porches (furnished with Maine-essential rocking chairs), gas fireplaces, wet bars and private outdoor showers, while Two-Bedroom Cottages feel like private vacation homes thanks to cozy living rooms, full kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows and stone fireplaces.
Echoing Hidden Pond’s romantic, back-to-nature setting, onsite Earth restaurant serves seasonal, local fare by famed Boston chef Ken Oringer. Choose from house-made charcuterie, dock-fresh seafood dishes, wood oven fired pizzas and more, all served in a rustic dining room overlooking the pond and organic gardens. The alfresco Farm Bar also hosts live music nights throughout the summer months. For a different sort of indulgence, the three-room spa has a unique position in a series of treehouses above the gardens and uses all natural ingredients (including some grown onsite) in its pampering facial, wrap and massage treatment menu.
In the Area
Head out on a deep sea fishing trip with Striker Charters and see what you can reel in. Taste craft brews, chowder, crab cakes, artisanal cheeses, Maine-made condiments and other local flavors. Experience a classic slice of New England during a hands-on 90-minute lobstering cruise aboard the Rugosa, which departs from the Nonantum’s dock. For a dose of culture, few museums have as stunning a location — or view — as the oceanfront Ogunquit Museum of Art, which houses a distinguished permanent collection of American art, including works by Marsden Hartley, Rockwell Kent and Thomas Hart Benton.
How to Get There
Beautiful Bungalow - Spacious, clean. ALL Staff extremely attentive!
On-site Earth Restaurant delicious! Shuttle to beach to their sister Hotel on Goose Rocks Beach - The Tides. Beach attendants to put up umbrella, chaise lounge chairs, towels. Brings menu and anything can be ordered and delivered to the beach. Best, best beach experience! No dragging any stuff to the beach. Again, very attentive!
My wife found Hidden Pond by doing online research and reading reviews. What a find. Heavenly, magical, enlightening. There is never a “no” for an answer by the staff and the amenities and services were exquisite. We were concerned that there might not be enough for all of us to do - wrong. We did maybe 10% of all there was to enjoy. Easy access to the gorgeous Goose Rocks Beach by bicycle or shuttle was just the icing on cake. We will be back next year.
I really lked Hidden Pond. I was hesitant to spend $3000 on a 3 night stay not knowing much about the property but was glad we stayed here. We did not leave the property for 3 days. The pool was great and so was the food. We relaxed, took walks on the path, sat by the pool, took part in the activities.
Their sister property is less than 2 miles away and is nice if you want to visit the beach. Just call the front desk they will take you over. Nice to have a kitchen and amenities within a short walk of the cottage. I would stay here again.
