Holidays at Samoset Resort


A holiday spent at Samoset Resort is truly magical. Whether you’re traveling as two or a multi-generational crew, there is something to please everyone. From 5-course feasts reuniting families around the table, to scheduled resort activities to celebrate the holiday and time spent with family, Samoset Resort is the place to celebrate.


Samoset Resort has commenced its seasonal hours of operation, during which the resort is open on weekends only through December 27, with extended hours Thanksgiving week (Wednesday - Sunday), and Christmas week (Thursday - Sunday).
