A wooded getaway in the Pine Tree State was named the best resort in New England by Conde Nast Traveler readers.

The travel publication released the top 30 resorts in New England last week as part of its 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards, and Hidden Pond in Kennebunkport, Maine, snagged the No. 1 spot.

“This cozy Maine resort, surrounded by birch groves and balsam fir, gives us the sophisticated summer camp feels,” the publication wrote.

The 60-acre resort is dotted with hand-painted wooden signs that lead to amenities such as a garden where guests can pick vegetables and a bike shed where they can borrow a retro cruiser for trips to Goose Rocks Beach, according to CNT. The publication also made note of the hot coffee and canvas bag of freshly baked pastries left outside guests’ doors each morning.
