Samoset is always sure to please; no matter if your 10 or 40+. The pool, the golf, the restaurants or just sitting in a chair gazing out at the sea. Tons to do or nothing at all. Strongly recommend the cottages. They are amazing and will enhance your family memories!

This was our first trip to Samoset but we had stayed at other locations owned by the Opal group. The overall facility was great, we had 4 in our room, two adults and two children aged 11. We had two queen beds and one rollaway and we had plenty of room. The pools ( indoor/outdoor) were nice particularly outdoor. One... More

This is a gorgeous property on the ocean with stunning views. The golf course is first-rate, and the outdoor pool is fantastic. My only issues are price (a bit high) and quality of the room (it was large, but wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom, a screen was torn, and in general it just needs to be updated).

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We were blown away by how beautiful this place is, and the fact that it sits right on the ocean. We got an oceanview room with an absolutely gorgeous view. The room was very clean and spacious. We were treated to a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries compliments of... More

From check in on the staff was helpful and informative regarding local restaurants and property questions. For me it was a delight to sit on the balcony and enjoy a beautiful view of Penobscot Bay.

I had the opportunity to stay in The Flume Cottage which is perched on the rocks overlooking the ocean by the golf course at the Samoset Resort. This is the most unbelievable lodging facility you could ever dream of. The Flume Cottage has two bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a living/dining room, two bathrooms, washer/dryer, and a deck with a hot... More

We, also, consider The Flume the ultimate in luxury accommodations with all the amenities you described including a 180 degree water view right on the rocks of the shoreline. Thank you for telling us and... More

I recently attended a work sponsored weekend and the staff could not have been more accommodating especially given the number in our group - the room was terrific - balcony overlooking the ocean, the food was perfectly prepared and delicious - we had a lobster bake by the pool that was more elegant than many weddings I've attended!
