We were here in Nov. and the restaurant was closed during the week. We enjoyed the exercise facilities and walking the grounds. We took a trip to Acadia and enjoyed restaurants in the area. We were very lucky to be here to see the super moon.

When we checked in, they asked us if we wanted to play 9 or 18. Thought this was a bit unusual, but now know why. The front nine is very scenic, but course routing is vague-had to ask directions twice, ran into another group later, with same problem. Back nine was mundane, with exception of couple of holes on water.... More

This course is phenomenal!! Best in all New England. The course is in outstanding shape (especially considering it is a resort course!) thanks to terrific course maintenance. The views of Penobscot Bay are stunning, course is fair and challenging. Beautiful gardens line the course and the staff - especially the Head Pro, Gary Soule, were friendly and incredibly helpful. He... More

golf course very scenic and in good shape-pace of play was not fast, but not unreasonable-curious as to why 3 drinks before golf were $24.00 and the same 3 at the turn were $29.00-think someone may be able to explain-golf was a very enjoyable experience-can't wait to return, but will pass on clubhouse amenities

Just finished a tremendous vacation at the Samoset Resort which I personally feel is New England's best place to vacation. Incredible views of the ocean was constantly in view from the room, hotel lobby area, and amenities such as infinity pool, kids play area and the outstanding golf course. This upscale destination place offered so much for our family with... More

There is not a beautiful place in the summer to spend time with your family. Every year the place gets more and more beautiful. The golf, pool and hotel and second to none. We look forward to our week at the samoset every year!!! Please keep in mind the timeshare units are owned by a completely separate company. I'm sure... More

We stayed one night this month. We were accommodated in one of the timeshare units building 3. Dated, musty carpet, small bathroom, dark. Not my choice for a return visit. On the plus side nice grounds and lots to do for family and kids although we were two adults travelling. Needs a second pool adults only mainly because the pool... More
