You’re on the coast of Maine so sit back and renew your body and mind. Here, the warm light of summer beckons as you snuggle into your private cottage nestled within sixty acres of birch groves and balsam firs. Welcome to Hidden Pond, Kennebunkport’s a collection of individually designed cottages with lavish services and amenities are the hallmark of this premier luxury resort.

Whether you call us ‘flip flop chic” or splendidly laid back, life at Hidden Pond is about special treats and simple pleasures. Imagine champagne toasts mingling with fireflies by the light of a crackling fire. Think garden-side yoga or a massage in our Tree Spa. Envision private chefs carefully preparing gourmet feasts and forest clambakes. Experience afternoons lazing in the sun on Goose Rocks Beach. Discover al fresco showers and quiet porches, so you can lather up or nod off to a breeze redolent of sweet fern. Think of everything, but not too hard, as it’s time to let the nine to five slip away and to enter a time bygone.

Our staff is dedicated to your every whim. Well, almost. You have to kick off your own shoes. Hidden Pond. Naturally spectacular. Naturally relaxing.
