  • Our wedding coordinator Linde was simply amazing! She took all the worries and stress and made the weekend perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience!

  • Having my wedding at the Samoset was a dream. I wanted everyone to be able to stay on site, and have all weekend activities on site as well. From the rehearsal dinner outside under the tent, to the welcome party at the clubhouse to the ceremony by the breakwater and reception back under the tent.... the entire weekend was such a dream. I even had a torrential HAIL storm mid ceremony, no covering, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Linde was ON POINT, she is blunt and extremely detail oriented and that is exactly what you need in a wedding planner. The actual hotel itself is top notch— resort style pool, stunning golf course, renovated rooms... could not recommend this place more. Food was amazing as well!! Lobster all weekend. You’ll have the wedding of your dreams! Worth every penny.

  • I knew almost immediately that we had made an excellent choice when we booked the samoset as our venue. Will, the wedding coordinator is beyond fabulous. He was attentive to every request I made and every email I sent. In the days before our wedding he helped keep me calm and put out several small "fires". The resort was a beautiful location. The staff was amazing at every turn (accommodating every request and helping to make everythingness exactly as I imagined it). The food was incredible both for our rehearsal dinner and at our wedding. Many guests said it was both the best and most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. I always perceived the samoset as much too expensive for me to ever imagine having my wedding there. But due to the off season and the small(ish) wedding we wanted, it was very affordable and worth EVERY PENNY!

  • Living in New York, but having grown up around the corner from the Samoset, we decided that it was a perfect venue for our wedding. Not only did we have the ceremony and reception there, but decided it was a perfect spot for our rehearsal dinner as well. Will Clayton is such a gem and truly a great wedding coordinator. He always made us feel like he completely understood what we were looking for, and his kindness, and flawless day-of organization really were over the top and more than we could have hoped for. Will really went above and beyond for us with drilling our chuppah together, holding my lipsticks, finding something for me to stand on during our outside photos, and making special mock-tails for family members that do not drink. We really can not express our gratitude for all of his help and all that he did for us. Our wedding day, as well as the entire weekend, were so magnificent, and in large part thanks to Will and the Samoset. The Samoset's front office staff, restaurant... Read more

  • Will Clayton was our Group Contact during the planning and on our Wedding day. Will was so easy to work with and always understanding and open minded to our ideas. His knowledge of the industry was comforting to both myself and my now wife. Will was a superhero on the Wedding day! While I (the groom) was running around and tayloring the final touches Will checked in with me and took on anything he and his team to could take off my plate. When it came time for me to leave the ballroom and get ready myself Will went through any last minute touches that were needed and executed them beautifully! The Samoset Resort has been doing this for decades and is so accustomed to elegant presentation and service that it takes away any stress one would have. We were thrilled with the outcome of our Wedding and would highly recommend the Samoset and Will Clayton.

  • We changed our venue at the last minute due to unprofessionalism and poor quality of food and rooms at the planned venue. Luckily Samoset was available to host our reception. There are two pools on the grounds (indoor and outdoor), tennis courts, child's playground, and, of course, amazing golf course. I could not be happier with the decision to move venues. Samoset staff was fantastic. Venue was beautiful. Food was delicious. We had a tented reception on the grounds, with picture-perfect views, huge lobsters, great cocktail hour. At the end, the staff efficiently organized removal of cards and personal items back to our room. Only slight negative I can think of is that the rooms could use some freshening up in decor, but were clean and definitely at a higher standard than our original venue. Common areas were well kept and resort was well staffed with very helpful attitude from all members of the team. Will Clayton in particular is fantastic and gets things done. He's the Samoset's ac...

  • I live in NY but grew up in Maine and wanted a wedding with a view. After looking at three locations in person, we chose the Samoset and we are so happy with our decision. The guests raved about the view from both the ceremony location and the tented reception. Customer service is excellent. When we viewed the venue we were driving from NY to northern ME and had our dog with us. Instead of making us wait outside with the dog, Will Clayton, the event coordinator, let us bring her all over the resort with us on the tour. Later in the summer my mother dropped by unannounced to show the resort to my in-laws. Will dropped everything to give them an hour long tour. Planning from afar was easy as the Samoset hosts a Grande Tasting where couples can experience a mock wedding, choose food, linens, etc; and also meet vendors. We were able to choose our florist, DJ, and tent rental from that one event. The day of the wedding the bridesmaids got a huge room with champagne and music provi... Read more

  • Will Clayton and the staff at the Samoset went above and beyond to make our entire wedding experience so perfect. From the planning process to the big day, Will was responsive, reliable, and quite frankly our "Yes Man". If there was any wish or need we had he couldn't say yes to he sought the appropriate personnel and made it happen. We realized throughout our stay at the Samoset that the facility was beautiful on the inside too! We were sold on the views at the Samoset, but the rain and fog unfortunately prevented us from this on the big day. Will and his staff coordinated our rehearsal dinner, ceremony , cocktail hour, and reception to be almost as stunning as the views on a sunny day. We can not thank the Samoset enough!

  • I attended a wedding at The Samoset and I can’t say enough about how beautiful it was. The coordinator was very energetic and interacted with guests as needed. The day was so beautiful and the food was amazing.

  • I have been going to the Samoset since I was a young kid and was so excited when we decided to get married there.   I'll start with the positive: 99% of the staff was beyond kind, attentive and professional throughout the whole weekend.  We especially loved the staff working the bar - we got to know them over the course of the weekend as they also worked at our welcome party.  The entire staff at the front desk was great to work with - our guests had great experiences with them!  The renovations at the resort are fantastic.  The food was spectacular.  I would recommend the resort itself with no hesitation. Linde, the catering sales manager, left much to be desired.  Initially, we loved her, and she was one of the reasons we booked there to start.  Over the course of the process, while helpful at times, Linde lacked communication (trying to get us to pay our final bill weeks early and trying to end our room block a month early) and was fairly disorganized (we often receive...

  • I was married at the Samoset on Friday July 25th. It is 10 days later and we are still getting compliments on how much fun people had at the wedding. We held our ceremony down by the ocean and had a tented reception outside up by the hotel. The views and atmosphere are breath taking. We had perfect weather and everything was beautifully put together. We worked directly with Will Clayton and I really can't compliment him enough. He is very down to earth and personable but also very professional and knows what he's doing. He was so helpful with any questions we had and was always quick to make recommendations. The wedding day was organized and just amazing. I had a great experience and would highly recommend getting married at this venue. It was everything I wanted for my wedding.

  • The food was amazing and the staff was lovely and very accommodating to guests’ needs. The bellman were great about making carts accessible and during photos one kindly shuttled my mom and flower girl back down to the photo location. The property is beautiful and is clearly meticulously and flawlessly maintained. The housekeeping staff was very thorough and was able to tidy up rooms very promptly and efficiently. Our guests all noted that the property was gorgeous. Overall our experience was great and the resort was lovely; however, the planning process would make me hesitate in recommending this as a venue. There was a significant delay in responses to email (greater than one week on several occasions) and required a lot of effort on our end to ensure things that were promised actually happened, and even then things slipped through the cracks. For the price (and 20% service fee) I was sorely disappointed in the level of service. We specifically selected the Samoset base... Read more

  • As an event coordinator, I wanted the perfect wedding that I had been planning since I was a little girl while watching weddings from my balcony at the Samoset. The Samoset Resort and its staff created the wedding of my dreams! With the constant help from Will Clayton and his staff, I was able to let go of my event coordinator role and just be a bride for the day without a worry in the world. A HUGE thank you to the entire Samoset staff for making my wedding weekend (all the way from a quiet night on Thursday to Sunday brunch) so perfect and making all of my guests so happy! We're ready to come back and celebrate every year!! :)
