We spent a week here in June of 2014. The setting is very scenic, especially in the early evening when sitting on the patio and viewing the bay. Everything is first class very well done. The property is away from town, not far, but enough to stifle spontaneity. After several days the idyllic setting wore a little thin; would have... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful night at the Samoset for our anniversary. I spent time in thelounge by the fire having a glass of wine and reading. The we had room service and a quiet night alone. The down puff was hot but the king sized bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless. Perfect night for... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room was in perfect condition, with a lovely view of the ocean and lighthouse. For dinner, we ate at the restaurant located downstairs, which served a delicious four course meal, all of which was prepared exactly how you would hope. The atmosphere for the bar and restaurant were excellent and fit exactly... More

I have not been to the Samoset in about 20 years and since that time have been to quite a few 4 and 5-star hotels. 20 years ago, I was amazed by it but now I guess I'm a little jaded. My husband and I went to this Samoset this past weekend for my birthday. To me, other than the... More

Our family group of 5 adults and 4 children recently spent an overnight slumber party at the Samoset and everyone had a wonderful time. We hail from 3 different Maine locations. Outside is was pouring rain but we didn't even notice as we had such fun in the hotel. The resort is beautifully decorated for Christmas. In the lobby they... More

If you're looking for a place for a get away wedding, the Samoset should be your first choice. From the start the front desk personnel was so positive, polite and helpful. We were greeted by name and the staff member commented on how much she loved weddings. When I called the desk on Saturday morning asking where I could get... More

We recently stayed at The Samoset Resort, as we do Thanksgiving weekend, and had another great time. The lobby, as always, is festive and this time was no different showcasing a Polar Express train set-up, Christmas trees with gifts at their bases, illuminated garlands and decorations to name a few. Many guests enjoy the lobby and wood fireplace to mingle,... More

We also appreciate your attention to details as a returning guest who notices things such as our holiday decorations, the newly installed granite posts and lighting around the outdoor ice rink, the warm and welcoming environment of the lobby’s fireplace, and the clean in-room refrigerators....

Stayed at the Samoset the weekend after Thanksgiving. Unbelievable grounds and views. Rockland is an amazing little town with very friendly people. Quaint and cute shops with a multitude of top shelf chioces for dining (try Rustica & Cafe Miranda). There was also a Festival of Lights on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Santa, Lobster Trap Xmas Tree, Parade). Staff at... More

Dear Paul L, You visited the Samoset and our surrounding area during a great time of year! Rockland’s Festival of Lights, the lighting of the lobster trap Christmas tree downtown, and the extended shopping hours in the downtown area are all fun events. I’m also glad you made time to enjoy Samoset’s indoor pool. You are correct-our setting is breathtaking... More
