Dear Stephen P, You certainly packed in a lot of activity during your stay at the Samoset. Thank you for letting us know how much fun you had. I’m glad to see you enjoyed both the Glacier Ice Bar and adventuring out into Camden with a trip to the Camden Snow Bowl’s tobogganing chute. We hope you consider coming back... More

Due to the time of year, we did not think there would be sufficient things available to occupy our time as we are not winter sports enthusiasts. What we immediately found was a cheery and obliging concierge, eager to help us with any questions we had. We have a new truck and were reluctant to use valet service, but it... More

I am so glad we were able to convert another trepidatious winter skeptic to knowing how truly wonderful our resort is during the winter months. Part of this wonderful experience is the food and we are glad... More

My family and I had the chance to experience a winter weekend at the Samoset Resort, which in fact was also the Ice Bar Weekend. From arrival to departure, the staff at the resort exceeded our expectations in professionalism and service. There is some much positive about this resort, from the well appointed rooms, breathtaking views of the ocean, the... More

The Samoset is a top notch resort. I traveled here for the weekend with family and had one of the best hotel experiences EVER! We attended the annual Ice Bar they host and were able to enjoy food, drinks and a great social atmosphere at this wonderful resort.

Stayed at the Samoset Christmas eve and Christmas night. The staff is very courteous and friendly. They eagerly accommodated our request for an adjoining room for other family members.

Since we were not able to be with family this year at holiday time, we booked a stay at the Samoset. And what a good decision that turned out to be. We had no expectations regarding activities as we knew we would simply be relaxing and enjoying one another's company. So the rain and fog didn't bother us! It was... More
