Things to Do atHidden Pond

During your stay at Hidden Pond, do as much or as little as you’d like. Plan a day at the spa, kayak along the shore, go for a walk in the woods, or simply relax in your room with a good book. When you’re ready for a bite to eat, make your way to the Farm Bar at Earth at Hidden Pond for small plates and poolside drinks. Or hop on our free shuttle for lunch at our sister property, The Tides Beach Club. By the time you return, the nightly bonfire will be ready for some s’mores.
