ok so i have a lot of dream vacations but this one is definitely towards the top. i first read about the hidden pond resort in kennebunkport, maine a year ago in food & wine magazine. every since i've found myself drifting off into familiar day dreams about it.
my parents just went to maine for the weekend, and although they were staying in portland, their trip bought back my pining feelings for hidden pond. now you may ask why this resort is so amazing. well, buckle up, because what i'm about to tell you is surely going to jumpstart your day dreams as well.
the hidden pond is a luxury boutique resort featuring individually designed and decorated cottages. well that's great, but not the best part. the absolute BEST part of this resort is that it's situated on an organic farm and all of the herbs, vegetables and fruits are up for grabs to all guests. BOOM. i just blew your mind right? they provide you with a fully equipped kitchen, spices, basic ingredients etc. and you can go and pick whatever you like from the farm. amazing. then, if you don't feel like cooking, they have private chefs that will come do that for you, in your cottage! day dreaming yet?
on top of the bounty that you will surely pick from the farm, the resort delivers a bakery basket and hot coffee each morning to your cabin. i can almost hear you falling off your chair right now.
aside from the food, there's morning yoga, kayaking, canoeing, art and cooking classes, biking you name it. the town is also really cute and the cottages are situated right by the beach. what more could you want?
