I recently stayed at Samoset for a work conference. This place is absolutely breathtaking. Even though I didn't play golf, I am DEFINITELY going back. The course looked like it was in great shape and situated along the ocean made it absolutely spectacular. The resort itself was old and needs a lot of TLC. I was informed it will be... More

This has to be the most beautiful places on the coast of Maine for a wedding! It will accomodate all your guests, and for those who can't stay there there are plenty of affordable places close by. The wedding planner is incredible and I strongly recommend you check it out!

I was so sad to close the door for our cottage this morning and it actually took me awhile to do so.

The Samoset is an elegant resort that was a lovely experience for a romantic weekend away. The soaking tub was plenty for two, and the room was beautiful with a lovely oceanview. The restaurant in the hotel was delicious and the music in the lounge provided a wonderful atmosphere. I highly recommend the romance getaway package!
