Established in 1889, the Samoset Resort faces Penobscot Bay from Jameson Point in Rockport, Maine. To the east, whitecaps and sails speckle the deep blue of the sea, guarded by the near mile-long Rockland Breakwater and Lighthouse adjacent to the resort. To the north lies Camden, one of New England’s most picturesque coastal towns, with white-steepled churches, narrow streets lined in shops and restaurants, and harbor dotted with colorful windjammers and yachts.
The scenery creates a picture-perfect backdrop for the Samoset’s coastal cottage architecture, housing 178 luxurious rooms and suites and 72 condominiums. Each features wireless Internet access and overlooks the ocean or the resort’s fairways from a private balcony or patio. Flume Cottage, a luxury two-bedroom bungalow, rests directly on the rocks of Penobscot Bay.
