Hidden Pond is great. Quiet and serene. You can be as active or as passive as you want to be. No one bothers you unless you want to be (and I would not call it bothering). Every morning, a very quiet person dropped off fresh baked goods, coffee and a paper on our doorstep. the on site restaurant EARTH is...

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL STAY; Our two days were magical in cottage 21, and I will recommend your enchanting property to our Los Angeles community, as it feels like summer camp for families and for couples.

really liked the use of natural materials and decorating elements. Staff super responsive. Agree that it was a bit woodsey for being so close (1 mile) to beautiful Goose Rocks beach. But a quick phone call arranged an immediate ride, pick up at our bungalow, to the beach. Friendly young lady set up super comfortable lounge chairs, hoisted shade umbrella,...

I stayed here recently in a one-room bungalow and generally it was lovely, but as another reviewer mentioned, it's peculiar to be right by the coast, but not see it! The overall feeling is fairly "rustic" and there didn't seem to be heating in my bungalow, which made the night a little chilly. However, the bungalow itself was nicely decorated,...

Dear BostonianBrit: I appreciate you sharing your review of Hidden Pond from your recent visit. I certainly understand your mention of being so close to the ocean, without being able to see it. With Goose Rocks Beach just 1.3 miles away, we are located in a very unique location. We are on 65-acres of birch and balsam forest and the...

It is odd to stay in what is essentially a gated community but be only one mile from the lovely Maine coast. There are tons of nice touches on the property -- free bikes you can use to get around the grounds and to the local town. There is a sign when you pull in that says "Drive slow. Breathe...

We just got back from our babymoon at Hidden Pond and we had an amazing time.
