A group of family and friends spent a weekend at the Samoset Resort during school vacation. It was a very busy weekend for the hotel, yet we still were treated wonderfully by the wait staff, front desk, pool and other staff.

Stayed in room with hot tub on deck. Was perfect for winter weekend getaways. Rooms had a little bit of a funny smell when we first checked in, but otherwise nice. Grounds are beautiful. Worth walking out the to breakwater lighthouse

This oceanside resort boasts something for everyone, from it's fabulous spa, to it's world-renowned golf course to it's indoor and outdoors pools and it's delicious food. In January, plan to spend some time at their ice bar, always an experience whenever you go on the two weekends it is open. Winter weather permitting, they may have an ice skating rink...

Arrived to find a "We'll be back later" sign on the front desk. Thank goodness for the other guest that told me that you had to check in at the other end of the resort at the Health Club. Schlepped to the club dragging my suitcase. Employee didn't seem to get the problem with making guests walk a long distance....

Dear ckm1956, We are truly sorry for the inconvenience of your check-in process. During the winter months the main resort is closed during the week and our Front Desk does indeed operate out of our fitness area. While we are normally diligent and expedient on Sunday afternoons with placing numerous signs to direct traffic in the driveway to the fitness...

Dear Ellen P, Thank you for taking the time to let me know you enjoyed your stay with us during the Glacier Ice Bar event.

We gathered here with several other couples/friends for the ice bar weekend and fundraiser dance. The resort and adjacent grounds are beautiful and there are plenty of trails/golf cart paths to explore the course and ocean edge. We used the AllTrails app and found a nice hike through forest just up the road. We couldn't find any details on the...

Went to Samoset for their Ice Bar festivities. What a wonderful resort. We went with a large family group. Everyone had a room with a view of the water, it was wonderful.
