This is a lovely resort where you are paying for a top-notch amenities (many included in the resort fee). We stayed in a suite with a hot tub on the porch. It was well appointed, two rooms with separate thermostats (a treat for us) each with a TV, multiple tables, comfortable chairs, lots of room for luggage, brilliantly equipped with...

My wife and I were married at the Samoset Resort 8 years ago. Our wedding was beautiful. We went back last weekend with our 7 year old daughter. The weather, the facility, the food and the property was absolutely perfect! More importantly the staff was not burnt out from a busy summer season in Maine they were considerate, helpful and...

Dear Patrick M, We know we are jaded when we refer to the view from our pool as “the best in the world” so it was a nice validation to read you think so, too. We are happy your return visit was so nice for your family that you are planning to return next year. We look forward to welcoming...

Great resort not too far from home. Service and accommodation were beyond expectations! Spectacular view. Very relaxing. Staff were unbelievably hospitable. The food was good and not overpriced. We had plans of going out but we ended up staying in the resort the whole time!

Dear Heidi H, Congratulations on your recent nuptials!

Recently returned from a great three night stay. Our family has been to the Samoset four or five times in the past and we have always had a terrific experience. Our kids ages 13, 10 and 10 loved the spectacular outdoor pool. Excellent drinks for adults poolside as well. The views of Penobscot Bay never get old. Kids also enjoyed...

The staff is terrific and the expansive ocean views can't be beat. My kids had a great time playing tennis, pickle ball and swimming. If you are willing to spend a few extra dollars, the Flume Cottage is unforgettable. If not, the main lodge is still great. I have stayed here about 5 times and I always look forward to...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Samoset! We had a beautiful ocean view room on the 6th tee of the lovely golf course. The restaurant was great and the staff was very accommodating. We will definitely return!

From the minute you arrive, throughout your stay, and when you check-out you will meet the most friendly hotel staff that you may ever encounter. They're pretty remarkable, but so is the Samoset Resort generally. Just a short drive away from downtown Rockland, with all of its fine restaurants, shops and museums and galleries, the Samoset is an oasis of...

We liked this place so much we came back after 10 years. This time around, though, there was lots of noise and small children both in the hotel and at the pool. We noticed that they now are also a "Time Share" hotel, so maybe that's why. So if you're coming here for peace and quiet during the summer months,...
