Reviewed May 9, 2013

Clean and well furnished room. Newly tiled bathroom with amenities ( only thing missing was a a towel bar near the sink)
You can get over-indulged by adding some spa services ... Aromatherapy massage was outstanding and you cannot go wrong with a totally pampering manicure/pedicure.
This is a full service resort and they do a fabulous job of making you comfortable .. Fabulous - you cannot go wrong with this resort. We had not stayed there recently and almost forgot how much we enjoyed it. We won't forget it after this visit!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms overlook the bay .. Beautiful view!

LoveFunFood,

Thank you for your continued patronage of The Samoset Resort.

We are proud of our ongoing enhancements to the resort, and are pleased you recognized the in-room renovations. I apologize that the towel bar next to the sink was, which has been reinstated by our Engineering Department.

The Spa has become a local favorite for similar reasons to what you have mentioned and we are delighted you were able to enjoy those services.

We look forward to hosting you in the resort and spa again soon.

With hospitality,

Cornelius Russell

We had an amazing stay at the Samoset in late April. It started with dinner and drinks in the relaxed atmosphere of the resort's restaurant. The bartender took special care of our friends by having them sample some drinks he was perfecting and visiting our table to make modifications until they were just right. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and was not afraid to steer us away from things we would not like.

The King Suite we had was very comfortable and spacious. It also had a very nice sized deck that overlooks the two lighthouses and the harbor. The resort also has many amenities including a spa and ocean front golf course that meets the needs of all skil levels. Make sure you leave some time to walk the 3/4 miles on a granite pier to the Rockland Lighthouse.

Our stay ended up with a great brunch that included the traditional brunch items, some italian addtions and excellent deserts. Overall, I cannot think of how this could have been better.

Claire W,

Thank you for visiting The Samoset with your friends this spring.

We are delighted you were able to enjoy the Entoeca Lounge and sample some of our bartender’s specialty drinks. We are also pleased you enjoyed La Bella Vita for dinner and Mid-Coast Maine’s finest brunch. Your kind words of our staff are appreciated as our team prides themselves in providing the best in hospitality.

We are happy to hear that you were comfortable in one of our luxurious King Suites and enjoyed both the view and walk along the Rockland Breakwater. Our golf course has become a local favorite for similar reasons to what you have mentioned and we are delighted you were able to enjoy those amenities.

We welcome you and your friends to return and enjoy all of our amenities again soon!

With hospitality,

Cornelius Russell

The Samoset Resort in Rockport offers a beautiful, relaxing getaway whether you're "from away" or live right in midcoast Maine. My boyfriend and I recently stayed overnight and had a wonderful experience. The staff are friendly and accomodating and the rooms are very clean and spacious. Our room had an expansive view of the Rockland Breakwater and Harbor. What a treat to wake up to the sun rising over the ocean! ( If you'd rather sleep in a little later there are heavy curtains to block out the light though.)
In addition, our meal at Enoteca the next day was delicious! Our pizza was made with the freshest ingredients and our wait staff was pleasant and helpful with suggestions.
We're looking forward to going back this summer when the pool is open and the pool-side cafe is serving lunch and drinks. What could be better than sipping a cold beverage while watching the sailboats glide past the breakwater?
I highly recommend that you stay at the Samoset Resort when you're in the area.

Room Tip: Many rooms have decks with views of the ocean and Rockland Breakwater.

Decided to take a little weekend escape with the Kids and we ended up at the Samoset Resort. What a GREAT choice for our escape. We had a spacious room, the kids loved the pool, my wife loved the SPA, and I loved the great breakfast buffet!! I'm now looking forward to a summer visit when I can get out and tryout what appears to be an amazing ocean front golf course. Bottom line if you are looking for a family or that couple escape this is the place to be on the coast of Maine.

My wife and I recently stayed at the resort and found it to be truly exceptional. The staff is friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in our comfort. The room was clean and spacious and the view was excellent! We had dinner at LaBella Vita and it was outstanding. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helped us with our wine selection and recommendations for our appetizers. A stay at the Samoset Resort is certainly a wonderful experience.

They have put a lot of money in to the resort the last few years. The new restaurant is really nice and the outdoor patio is beautiful. The new swimming is fantastic. The facility now matches the view. Highly recommend it.
