We traded through RCI timeshare, we'd tried to get in during October for 20 years and never could get in, so when an October 28 check in popped up and we said let's give it a shot even though there won't be a leaf left on a tree. But lucky us - because lots of beautiful foliage left to enjoy...

What a superlative time my husband and I enjoyed at the Samoset! Every aspect of our 12 day stay was delightful from the well-appointed room with a fabulous ocean view, the charming, professional and kind staff at the front desk, the restaurant and lounge servers and hosts, and very kind Rebecca at gift shop. We can't wait to return for...

We stayed for a week at the resort (on an RCI exchange) and had a wonderful time. Neither my wife nor I are golfers, so we did not take advantage of the beautiful, well-maintained golf course, situated right on the coastline. We did enjoy the disc golf course, the indoor swimming pool, spacious and hot hot tub, and steam room....

Samoset Resort on the Ocean is a beautifully appointed hotel with all you could need for a Maine getaway. From the lovely room (we were upgraded to an ocean view suite for free!) to the lobby decor to the friendly staff and wonderful restaurant, we had a great stay at Samoset and spoke about returning next year.

We stayed for 2 nights at this lovely resort. We had a large room with king bed, balcony and ocean view. It had been nearly 10 years since we last stayed here and the resort has continued to improve. The food is very good with an Italian emphasis. The eating areas seem more upscale and cozy compared to what they...

Dear ABMcP, We are so glad to welcome you back to the Samoset since your last visit ten years ago. The resort has undergone many upgrades and changes during this time, while still retaining its historic resort charm.

This was our second visit here. We really love the pool (love the adult only lap swim!) and fitness center, the wonderful lighthouse walk and the ocean front rooms. It was fall, so the place was quiet, it may get busier with kids etc during the summer. My husband had his "best massage ever" from Phoebe. And we both loved...

We booked a weekend for our 10th wedding anniversary. When I mentioned this at check-in, manager Cornelius graciously upgraded us to an oceanfront cottage! It was beyond amazing. We loved sitting in the screened-in porch listening to the gentle sounds of the ocean. The cottage was one of 4 private cottages sitting right on the golf course. It was quiet...

We just spent a mid-week "Golf Getaway" at the Samoset and it was terrific! Head Golf Pro, Gary Soule, accommodated our tee time requests with professionalism and good humor. The golf course truly is "The Pebble Beach of the East" with gorgeous sparkling ocean views. We enjoyed dinner at La Bella Vita so much that we returned for another delicious...

We are on day 5 of a 6 night stay at Samoset. The accommodations are exactly as presented. The room amenities are a nice quality. Each room has a personal Keurig with a selection of 6 k-cups restocked daily. Another nice plus is two complimentary bottles of spring water daily. Small things, but I find nothing more annoying than to...
