American menswear designer Todd Snyder has teamed up with Hidden Pond Resort in Kennebunkport to design 20 luxury bungalows inspired by his travels to Maine.
These are the most charming small towns in New England, according to TripsToDiscover.com
The one-bedroom cottages, which debuted this month, feature three design concepts: country, mountain, and coast, all influenced by Snyder’s travels to Maine’s Rangeley Lakes, Katahdin Mountain, and Sebago Lake.
The award-winning Hidden Pond, ranked second among America’s Best Resorts by USA Today readers in 2021, offers treetop lodges, one-bedroom bungalows, and two-bedroom cottages, all tucked away on 60 acres of Forests.
The remodeled 650-square-foot cottages feature floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces, plush king-size beds, canopy porches with daybeds, outdoor rain showers, expansive marble bathrooms, and expansive windows that showcase the outdoor forest.
Bungalow guests are treated to a Snyder-curated Spotify playlist and a dark and stormy cocktail combo – Snyder’s favorite drink – featuring fresh mint from the property’s organic garden and locally distilled rum from Batson River Brewing & Distilling.
Snyder, who has worked with brands like Harley-Davidson and New Balance, launched his first-ever hotel collaboration with Hidden Pond two years ago when he designed “The From Away Lodge,” a two-bedroom lodge inspired by his movie “From “Away” collection. Amphitheater with LL Bean.
“What we did with The From Away Lodge is very meaningful to me and represents a particular moment in time when my travels to Maine directly inspired me,” Snyder said in a statement. “I had been visiting the state on inspirational travels for my ongoing collaboration with LLBean, and became amazed at the beauty that is so unique to Maine, particularly in the grounds of Hidden Pond. I wanted to preserve the charm of the existing bungalows and weave in design elements that translate into each new concept.”
Countryside cottages are “masculine, sensible, and inviting,” according to a Hidden Pond spokesperson, with touches of masculine plaids, including an exclusive red and black Heritage Plaid from Snyder designed in collaboration with LL Bean repurposed for chair upholstery, classic army camouflage fatigue, and utilitarian décor, a standout motif.

Inspired by Mount Katahdin, these cottages are “quiet, natural and warm” with West Elm oak shade beds, carbon black sisal rugs, and patterned leaf wallpaper from Morris & Co.
The sea view bungalows are a classic American beach house and are “whimsical, bright and quiet” with John Derian oyster shell wallpaper, off-white DuChateau hardwood floors and light patterned stone blinds.
Snyder has teamed up with Krista Stokes, Creative Director of Atlantic Holdings, and Mark Cotto, Creative Director of Kennebunkport Resort
Collect, to create huts.
Other amenities available to Hidden Pond Resort guests include a luxury spa, 2 swimming pools, an organic garden, an outdoor bar and the award-winning Earth Restaurant. Guest activities include hiking, cycling, yoga and paddle boarding.
“As one of Kennebunkport’s premier luxury resorts, we strive to create unparalleled and unexpected experiences for all types of travellers,” said Justin Grimes, managing director of Kennebunkport Resort Group, in a statement. “Following the success of partnering with Todd Snyder to launch his first hotel collaboration in Fall 2020, we are eager to tell more about our shared vision and love of Maine, combining fashion, travel and nature, to offer our guests a stylish and exclusive stay experience at Hidden Pond.”
Snyder, a four-time CFDA nominee for menswear designer of the year, will open a new retail store in Boston Seaport this fall.
Cottages start at $650 per night.
