A visit to Maine is not complete without a visit to a Lighthouse.  The Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse is a fun, short hike and an enjoyable place to take in the ocean breeze and view.

All visitors enjoy a selfie at the “Andre” the Seal Statue.  Andre has a long history and is a beloved and famous mascot.

If boating is your passion, be sure to stop at the Sail, Power & Steam Museum where you can visit sail making rigging rooms, early engines, tools, models and a working lime kiln. 



It is not necessary to leave the resort if you are a golfer.  The Samoset 18-Hole Golf Course inspires players of all skill levels with its breathtaking ocean vistas and one of the most challenging finishing holes in New England. For more information on booking tee times, golf lessons, and course layout, please visit

In addition, the resort is called the Ultimate Backyard.  Whether you want to shoot hoops on the basketball court, challenge colleagues to a volleyball, tennis, putting, or pickleball match or try your hand at shuffleboard and badminton, Samoset has everything.  


You will test your putting skills, have fun learning how to putt for the first time and compete with each other for 9 holes.  The person with the lowest score is the winner!

Disc golf
Also called Frisbee golf, this flying disc sport is played using rules similar to golf and is played on a course of either 9 or 18 holes.  Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee area toward a target, throwing again from the landing position of the disc until the target is reached.  The goal is to reach the target using as few throws as possible.

Pickle Ball
This fun paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis.  In teams of two, players will scrimmage against other teams on the resort’s outside tennis courts.
