About The Samoset Retreat

The Samoset Retreat is a contemporary home located on Glen Cove in East Boothbay, Maine. Rentals are available year-round. The cottage, located in a very private and quiet setting, offers an open layout which is both bright and comforting. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and a queen-size futon with its own bathroom and a private deck. On the main level there is a small bedroom with a full size futon, next to the second bathroom. The main deck is on this level and also overlooks the cove. The lower level has a queen size bed, picture window overlooking the cove and its private entrance.

From the two decks - both overlooking the water - you can relax and watch bald eagles, ospreys, herons, and other shore birds ... or just enjoy the tide going in and out. Also on the property is a private dock with a kayak and a rowboat for your enjoyment. A two minute walk will take you to the lobster pound and the picturesque harbor where you can watch the lobstermen hauling in their traps. The two mile loop - a scenic walk with wonderful water views - is right out the front door.

The Samoset Retreat is a five minute walk away from the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean, where Little River and the Damariscotta River meet.

Boothbay Harbor is an easy ten minute drive where you will find many restaurants, shops, galleries, harbor cruises and services. Freeport, Camden, and Arcadia National Park are all a short drive away.

Our Maine vacation at Linda's place was one of the best we've had. The minute we got there we were totally comfortable and relaxed. The wonderful views from the two decks, the various walking and fishing areas; not to mention all those quaint shops and eateries that were close by, made our vacation one that we definitely want to repeat. It's a perfect alternative to crowded resorts and busy tourist areas, yet close to many attractions. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are incredible and not to be overlooked. Just amazing.

The Samoset Retreat is a peaceful, relaxing get-away in one of the prettiest parts of Maine. The house has all the comforts of home - and then some. Linda pays attention details and to her guests.
