The last time we stayed was in December, we enjoy walking along the ocean cliff along the edge of the golf course, you can see the local ducks along the seacoast. The walk around the golf course takes a little over one hour. The only problem is during golf season this walk is taboo. You are only allowed to walk out to the breakwater or along the edge of the road. Samoset will not allow any walking that is near the golf course. They should have provided walking paths next to the fence along the course. Not everyone is into golf. Be careful while walking on the road as they have a lot of local traffic with local members to the health club and they are trying to get in before and after work and lunchtime, it is very active.
The Farnsworth Museum in downtown Rockland is fantastic you could spend the whole day there. Be sure to eat at the Rockland Café - they have all you can eat fish and chips, the fish is as fresh as it can be.
A close visit is Rockport Harbor. The view is fantastic, and an old lime kiln is located in the park. Years ago this port was active in lime processing.
While at the Samoset we had lunch twice at the Breakwater Café, it was very nice, great view and excellent lunch.
We are going back to the Samoset in November for Thanksgiving and are looking forward to it.
We were told that High Speed Internet will be available soon in every room (not sure if they will charge for it).
Be sure to visit the shops in Dramascotta and Boothbay Harbor. Captain Fish in Boothbay Harbor has the best narrated boat rides and has real comfortable boats. He comes in real close to the sites on his tour. They really know the local waters and tales about local people and the area.

Dining at the Samoset at Marcel's is a great experience, or you may have a casual lunch at the Breakwater Cafe or Clubhouse Grille.

LLBean is only a two hour drive away.
Camden offers quaint stores for shopping.Best Things About the Resort:This is a very friendly resort. The service is excellent, and one never knows who they are going to see at the resort. (i.e. some well know movie personalities)
The resort has both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts and of course the Golf course, which is well known (Pebble Beach of the East).Resort Experience:The time shares are very close to a large hotel/conference centre, and are located in three separate buildings. Each building is three floors, and has 24 units. All units look out onto the Golf Course and the ocean. There are private decks, where you can just sit and watch the golfers go by.
There are many activities for the kids to take part in during the summer months.
We really enjoy it here because we have friends that come each year. One night is always spent with us having a barbeque. We buy a large tenderloin and barbeque it on the pits provided. Then we add ceasar salads, fresh corn on the cob, and baked potatoes. There are usually eight adults in the party plus six or more children.

There is a ton of storage and all kinds of room for four people. This resort is the place to be, with golf, tennis, a gym, pool, movies, and several restaurants right on site with walking trails and people everywhere to help you. You will always have something to do.
