The Samoset is located perfectly between Rockland/Rockport and Camden, providing for many options for day time excursions. The golf course is in great shape, with the greens providing a challenge, as they played hard and quick. Many options to keep the kids busy, including basketball,...More

The Samoset is on the ocean and a long way from Maine's ski mountains. I would look for lodging close to Sunday River or Sugarloaf, which are the biggest ski areas in Maine, or one close to the mountain you will be skiing.
