Why Stay At Hidden Pond
Privacy reigns at this Maine hotel just north of central Kennebunkport, where private cottages are set on 60 balsam- and birch tree-filled acres.
The allure of this southern Maine hotel just north of Kennebunkport is the setting--and the food. The 36 private cottages (some with two bedrooms, and all with Frette linens, screened-in porches, and outdoor showers) are situated among 60 acres of balsam and birch trees, about a mile and a half from Goosefare Bay and the Atlantic. Morning begins with a basket of baguettes, muffins, and Stonewall jams, and during the day, Topsider-wearing travelers gather at the Lodge for its massive stone fireplace and heated swimming pool, then head out to the Tree Spa or on a five-minute drive to the beach, where staffers set up lounge chairs and umbrellas. For dinner, there's chef Ken Oringer's Earth restaurant, which incorporates ingredients from the on-site organic garden in the seasonal menu.
Send a shopping list before you come, and your cabin will be stocked before arrival.
On weekday mornings, take an hour-long tour of the organic farm. Guests can pick their own flowers or vegetables.
Arrive at Portland International Jetport (PWM) which is approximately 25 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 40 minutes of travel time.354 Goose Rocks Road, Kennebunkport, Maine, United States
