Coastal Highway 1 from either direction to Rockport Maine is a great scenic ride, but don’t delay your arrival to Samoset. You won’t want to miss a magical moment at this breathtaking resort. The golf course, one of the top in America, takes advantage of its coastal position with water views from most holes. Greg Grennert, superintendent gets the highest award for horticulture on and off the course with floral delights across the entire resort property.
The amazing new zero entry pool area is spacious with comfy furniture, and soft music, overlooking the ocean. Sipping a signature cocktail, from the splash bar while watching a vast variety of vessels floating in the Penobscot Bay, will calm the most alpha of personalities. GM Connie Russell has an attention for detail, making constant improvements to this 100 year old landmark with his excellent staff.
Mix a grand piano with an ocean view, a gourmet menu and you will enjoy dining perfection at Marcel’s restaurant. More casual fare at the Breakwater Café offers the same striking view. Walk off dessert on the breakwater pathway, a two mile trek across boulders to a lighthouse over the bay. All rooms have a balcony with a view or choose the dramatic Flume Cottage, a two-bedroom hideaway bungalow at the ocean’s edge, just off the 15th fairway.
