You’re at Earth at Hidden Pond, and your dining experience will be exceptional.
Cradled within a forest of birch and balsam trees in Kennebunkport, Maine, Earth at Hidden Pond is the result of a vision — one that embraces community and supports relationships between the world of outstanding cuisine and the farmers and foragers who provide the ingredients with which we compose incredible fare.
Simple yet innovative, Executive Chef Justin Walker’s menu focuses on “farm-to-fork” freshness. In addition to local meats and seafood, ingredients are sourced from one of two on-site organic gardens — picked daily and incorporated into each dish to enhance the many flavors and provide a taste that only fresh ingredients deliver. Handmade pastas, house-made charcuterie, and wood-oven-fired pizzas are thoughtfully prepared and sure to impress your palate. Our wine program features selections from countries such as Argentina, Chile, and Lebanon, while inspired, signature cocktails are concocted with freshly muddled fruits and fresh herbs plucked from the garden.
Your surroundings are nothing short of extraordinary, as the decor of Earth pays homage to nature, drawing the outside in. Earth’s walls were built from trees cut to clear the site and are studded with round wood “pickles” to enrich the rustic feel. Suspended high above the cement floor is a beautifully preserved apple tree, dotted with tiny, ivory lights and serving as the dining room’s paramount chandelier. Dramatic candlelight creates a warm glow that permeates the space, and as you dine overlooking the pond, a nightly outdoor bonfire further incorporates the element of fire.
