I had the opportunity to stay in The Flume Cottage which is perched on the rocks overlooking the ocean by the golf course at the Samoset Resort. This is the most unbelievable lodging facility you could ever dream of. The Flume Cottage has two bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a living/dining room, two bathrooms, washer/dryer, and a deck with a hot...

I recently attended a work sponsored weekend and the staff could not have been more accommodating especially given the number in our group - the room was terrific - balcony overlooking the ocean, the food was perfectly prepared and delicious - we had a lobster bake by the pool that was more elegant than many weddings I've attended!

I'm a huge fan of the coast of Maine and the Samoset has an amazing view. That's undeniable. Other luxury travelers will notice aging infrastructure. We had The Breakwater Suite which is ready for a new look. Again this is the coast of Maine -- there are not a lot of choices, so I do appreciate the option. But where...
