The price was fantastic, check in and out was quick, and it was close to downtown Rockland where we went to a concert at The Strand. We ate at their fine dining restaurant where the food was excellent and the service was friendly.

The Samoset offered a great weekend getaway. Awesome views of Pen Bay from all wings of the hotel. The weather was blustery, but inside the view was amazing with bright sun shinning in and so many sitting areas from which to take in the view. Friendly staff throughout! A full gym, not just a 'fitness room'! So whatever your routine... More

We just returned home from our 3rd amazing Samoset stay! My husband and I were on a romantic weekend overnight and we were not disappointed. The upgrade to a deluxe room as well as complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries made for an exceptional welcome. Our dinner in La Bella Vita was amazing - cocktails, food and staff! And plenty... More

This review should have been written immediately following our amazing honeymoon in Maine - it is that deserving. Our first trip to Maine included an elopement in Ogunquit with several days spent there and several in Rockport. The Samoset is nothing short of spectacular - from the exceptional service, luxurious accommodations, and breathtaking views. Can't say enough about La Bella... More

The Samoset Resort truly lives by their policy: "Consider it done!". We wanted for nothing, were treated like royalty and were surrounded by the breathtaking views of the spectacular Maine Coast! We were a group of six who celebrated a multi-Birthday get together this past wk. end, and this resort did not disappoint. The rooms were lovely, and due to... More

We stayed in the Condo area as the hotel was fully booked for one night of our 2 night stay. The condo was a nice size, fully equipped, but the the bathrooms were a bit dated. Beds were very comfortable, and everything was very clean. We skied on the golf course right from our front door, skated in the outdoor... More

My husband and I stayed here for the fishermans forum. The restaurant was delicious with such friendly wait staff. But it didn't stop there! The housekeepers were such a joy to see in the hallways. Always asking us if we needed anything. I think shaylin was her name who took care of our room, never stopped smiling! Such a sweet... More
