Wish I could post pictures of the sun setting over the bay. That alone is worth the trip. A shouldn't miss stop if you are enjoying Maine. Expect to spend a few bucks here, but it's not Motel 8! A luxury resort from start to finish: room appointments, grounds, restaurants and a beautiful golf course that is challenging and picturesque. This is a place for the discriminating traveler.

Dear RinkoA,

Your review was a pleasure to read and I appreciate your comments about the Samoset. You certainly experienced everything we have to offer by viewing our lovely grounds, your room, La Bella Vita restaurant, and our golf course. We can’t exactly take credit for arranging the beautiful sunsets, but are so glad you appreciated them just as we do. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

With Warm Hospitality,

Cornelius J. Russell, General Manager

Great stay at Samoset! The two bedroom condo exceeded our expectations! The property is beautiful and well maintained. Our only disappointment was, the closing of the lobby and the restaurant while we were there. We were told that "corporate" decided that the hotel section would be open Friday thru Sunday during this part of the season. What a shame!

Dear rcjf38,

Thank you for your review of the Samoset. Both our Timeshare Property Manager and I were pleased to read your two bedroom condo exceeded your expectations. Our grounds staff works very hard to keep us looking so nice and I thank you for complimenting their efforts, as well.

We've stayed at many resorts. The Samoset is by far the best! Clean neat every person we came in contact with was attentive and cheerful no attitude at all would recommend the Samoset to anyone that wants to relax and feel they got value for there $ Kevin&Penney Northern Maine

Room Tip: tell them what you want you won't be disappointed

Locals took us here for Sunday brunch, which was excellent. Great view, and excellent food and service. Looks like this would be wonderful place to stay as well. We only ate here, so not sure about rooms and other services, but looked excellent.

Room Tip: We only did the brunch, so don't know about the rooms.

The resort is centrally located to many attractions. The restaurant (La Bella Vita) at the resort is convenient, the food is amazing and the prices reasonable.
Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a 2 hour drive north; the drive is scenic and Acadia beautiful, especially at the top of Cadillac Mountain. Bar Harbor is a quaint town with shops to visit. Visit the Camden State Park and go to the summit of Mt. Battie for beautiful views.
The resort is beautiful, overlooking the water. We were two couples staying in a 2 bedroom timeshare. We had midweek housekeeping service, which was appreciated.
Our unit was on 2 levels with the master bedroom on the lower level with a walkout patio. The suite was small and the low ceiling made it seem smaller. The main level had a LR, DR, and another BR with full bath. The kitchen was partial with no oven but with a microwave and large toaster oven. There was a wrap-around porch with great views. We were in the downstairs bedroom, which had a separate wall-mounted heating unit, which was very noisy – we warmed the room up before going to sleep and then turned it off for the night.
The timeshare building we were in had 2 washers and dryers on the third floor, which required the payment of $1.00 for each. I understand the units are too small to have washers and dryers in them, but come on, can’t we have machines that will operate without payment? The unit needed to be updated; the furniture was on the older side but the beds were comfortable.

Dear VALlovetotravel123,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Samoset. Mt. Battie in Camden and Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbor are two beautiful attractions of our great state.

I appreciate your comments related to your timeshare unit. I have communicated your feedback to our Timeshare Property Manager for review concerning potential future updates to the units and changing the laundry machine options.

With Warm Hospitality,

Cornelius J. Russell, General Manager
