Dear llmiii, Thank you for review of the Samoset. It sounds like you had a lovely girls getaway with wonderful food, great company with a friend, and time to explore Rockland and Camden during your stay. I should point out that none of our rooms are described or marketed as Ocean Front, but are accurately represented as Ocean View rooms....

The Samoset inn is a beautiful resort with professional and welcoming staff. Upon check in our room was on 1st floor right next to the pool with no privacy. We asked to be relocated and were very pleased with the positive response. We were very happy with our room. A great place to enjoy morning coffee is on the patio...
