“YOUR OWN PRIVATE COTTAGE ON THE MAINE COAST, COMPLETE WITH THE BENEFITS OF A RESORT: IT'S THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS”
We have stayed previously at the Samoset, and always had a great experience, but this particular visit was by far, the best, and the most relaxing.......
We stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages, right on the ocean and golf course. I would highly recommend a stay here if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to unwind for a few days.
Sitting on the porch, you would have no idea there was a large resort hotel on the property. The quiet and peaceful cottages on the property allow you the best of both worlds.....a private cottage on the Maine coast, complete with the benefits of a resort property.
The cottages are completely furnished, modern in every way, and decorated in such as way that you instantly feel comfortable just plopping down in the living room complete with a fireplace, or lounging around the grounds. A full kitchen made for a great opportunity to make breakfast without ever having to leave the cottage. Room service for meals and drinks we didn't want to prepare ourselves, seemed almost instantaneously delivered. As always, the food at the Samoset is varied and great, along with the rest of the accommodations, including the new pool area.
But the front porch, is by far, the best room in the cottage.
Having the opportunity to experience the solitude of the cottages, overlooking the golf course and Rockland harbor made this a truly unique experience, that I have never found before on a resort property. Usually to have this experience, you also have to be prepared to be "roughing it" a bit more in the state of Maine, but not here.
Three days in these cottages, and you will leave in a completely different frame of mind.
I would highly recommend the Samoset in any event, but these cottages are something very special....
Pick a cottage on the property.....

Thank you for your continue patronage and kind words of your previous experiences. I am very pleased to know this visit was the best and most relaxing you’ve had, so far. I would agree that the Wind Drift Cottage, opened in 2011, has a spectacular combination of design, comfort, and features to provide a unique blend of cottage privacy and resort luxury. Our La Bella Vita in-room dining staff consistently strives for superior efficiency and service, so I am pleased to know that your dinning expectations were continually fulfilled. Our new zero-entry outdoor pool has quickly become a guest favorite for its innovative design and sweeping views, but the view of the Rockland Breakwater from the screened porch is unmatched elsewhere. I am glad you didn’t find anything “rough” about your cottage or stay with us and we look forward to continually raising the bar each time you visit!
