It isn't. It's close to a lighthouse, but no beach. However, their outside pool is terraced and overlooks the ocean.

Most of the surrounding area (Rockport, Camden etc) is rocky shoreline, not "beachfront". The Samoset sits right on the ocean, it's just not "beach".

If you check out their website (samosetresort.com) and watch the slide show on their home page, there are several shots that will give you a good idea of what their "waterfront" looks like -- pretty much as joesorce describes it --- true "sand" beaches are few and far between that far north on the Maine coast....
