samoset resort

I have an opportunity to stay at the samoset resort for one week first of June. Is there enough to do in Rockport for that amount of time or would day trips be needed? Best areas within two hours of Rockport? Thank you in advance for the info!

If you play golf, the on-site course at the Samoset is outstanding.... interesting holes, many with great views of the Atlantic. The resort website should list the other on-site amenities. In the immediate area (within 10-15 minutes drive depending on traffic) you'll find: world-famous Farnsworth Art Museum; Rockland Breakwater and Lighthouse (interesting walk/scramble to the lighthouse for a unique view of the harbor -- lighthouse itself is not usually open to the public); Owl's Head Transportation Museum (check their website), but, in general, if it moves people or goods, they have one); scenic Rockport Harbor; scenic Camden Harbor with a nice little waterfall at the head-of-the-harbor; Mt Battie Auto Road in Camden Hills State Park; hiking for various abilities in Camden Hills State Park; Maine State Ferry Service ferry to Vinalhaven for a visit between ferries or just a nice ride out-and-back if weather is good; possible half-day (and shorter) cruises out of Camden Harbor, Maine Lighthouse Museum,,,,

Within two hours would be: coastal towns of Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Wiscasset, Belfast... the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory, historic Fort Knox at Ft. Knox State Park, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, Pemaquid Point archeological area, and, at the outer limit of your two-hour circle, Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor.

While Rockport itself is a small community, there are many, many options for things to do, either immediately nearby or within a two-hour radius.

yes you will. We did the same thing 3 years ago... a week. There were a couple of days we never left the resort. Spa, Dinner, Pool, basketball /no golf for us... Rockland, Camden etc... all in earshot.

Suggestion: Make sure you get a room in the main building (hotel) or they will put you in a timeshare/rental which can be well 100-1000 yards from the main building and is not as quaint.
