Recreation in Mid-Coast Maine
Samoset is home to one of New England's best golf courses. Offering 18 holes of championship golf that will delight both the serious and recreational player, the course meanders along the coast and through the woods, boasting seven oceanside holes and ocean vistas from 14 holes.
Samoset is much more than championship golf, but a complete New England vacation destination. We also offer guests an outdoor swimming complex, disc golf, four tennis courts, basketball court, volleyball, croquet, shuffleboard, and children will love the "Ultimate Backyard" playground. Indoors you can take a dip in our heated pool, hot tub, steam saunas, full service spa, and a full health club. Or spend some time exploring New England's beautiful coast. Our knowledgeable concierge can arrange a cruise on a majestic schooner as Rockland is the "Schooner Capital of the World" or hop on a Maine lobster boat where you'll see a lobster trap being hauled from the water loaded with live Maine lobster.
Stroll through the historic New England shopping districts of the nearby villages of Camden and Rockland where you will delight in numerous antique shops, galleries, and boutiques. Take in a live perfomance, historical walking tour, or visit the Farnsworth Art Museum—home of one of the largest collections of Andrew Wyeth paintings in the nation, and don't miss the antique planes and automobiles at the Owls Head Transportation Museum.
Samoset Resort offers four onsite restaurants providing dining options from casual to elegant. Whether you choose the classic Italian elegance of La Bella Vita or the casual comfort of the Enoteca Lounge dining at the Samoset is an experience to savor. Visit our Splash Pool Bar for lighter fare and your favorite libations on the deck for hours soaking up the sun and savoring the sea air. Enjoy a cocktail or light meal at the Clubhouse Grille overlooking our championship golf course.
Fall brings a wash of color with neighboring Mt. Battie in Camden flaming with bright leaves great for leaf peepers, hiking and biking. The winter months bring skiing in neighboring Camden at Ragged Mountain—the only mountain where you can ski and still see the sea! And don't forget the National Toboggan Competition at Ragged Mountain and indoor skating and tennis at the Mid-Coast Recreation Center!
With all there is to see and do, you are sure to enjoy a fantastic New England vacation at The Samoset Resort.
