The Samoset Retreat has been a sanctuary for our family for many years. Its tranquility and well appointed decor and soothing environment offer us memories of many happy vacations. The house is extremely well furnished and fully equipped for making our favorite seafood dishes. We enjoy sitting on one of the two decks and reading or taking a nap. We also look forward to our walks around the 2 mile loop; watching the lobstermen coming in with their days catch or the sail boats as they glide by. We generally spend most of our week right at the house - it's too relaxing to want to leave!
