Rented a timeshare unit over February break week and can not say enough good things. The resort had planned children's activities (including making caramel apples), a beautiful pool facility, and outdoor ice skating. We were also able to enjoy snowshoeing with the scenic ocean view. We ate at the restaurant several times including the Sunday brunch. Staying at the Samoset... More

This is a great location for just relaxing with good friends. Warm fireplaces and comfy chairs and couches great for quiet conversations. The restaurant was great and the service was over the top with our same server every time we dined. His name was Nate F. and he was very responsive to our needs and had a super personality that...

Needing a little rest and relaxation before the winter holidays we rented one of the 2-bedroom oceanfront condos with another couple. The ocean view was gorgeous, the living space very clean with cozy furniture for lounging. The bedrooms had private baths with very comfortable beds. The kitchen was well appointed with everything one might need to prepare simple meals. We... More

Nice spot on the coast. Great views, walk to the harbor and lighthouse pier. Stayed over Christmas break so did not indulge in the golf course but looked nice, set between hotel and time shares and the coast. Good value off season but understand it's pricey and hard to get into when the golf course is open. A ways from... More

First time for my girlfriend and I in Maine, and we took the trek up there from Massachusetts. Rockport is a really cute town, and the view from the hotel was outstanding. We were lucky to get a room with a balcony that overlooked the golf course and the ocean. Amazing views, and a great spot to sit and have... More

Dear Michael D, We are so pleased you discovered the midcoast area, Rockport, and specifically the Samoset. The views from your balcony of Penobscot Bay and the islands dotted with pine trees is spectacular, but I’m not sure we can take credit for it. We’re glad you enjoyed our pool and hot tub while you were here and look forward... More

Never got around to giving this resort it's well deserved review! I'm getting ready to book our third trip there this August. I can honestly say our family has never desired to return to a hotel/resort a third time! This place is the exception.

My wife and I took our 15 month old son to see his grandmother in Owls Head. We went to the pool at the Samoset and had a great time. Grandma suggested dinner at La Bella Vita. We have not gone out more than a few times since our son was born and were a little nervous. We had no... More

Fantastic getaway for school vacation week. Very family friendly. The room was great and Addie and her team at the front desk are top notch. The pickup hockey game with other guests was super fun for kids and adults.

We stayed for 2 nights in the most affordable accommodations available for Valentine's weekend. Check in was quick and easy even though we arrived an hour before check in time. The room was clean and comfortable. Our first night, we both had pizza in the lounge which was delicious. Sunday brunch was amazing and should not be missed if you... More
