Share Article

One of New England’s premier resorts celebrates its new year-round status with Festive Happenings from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.

“This is The Samoset’s first return to winter season in three years and our staff and community are ready to welcome guests for this spectacular time of year!" said General Manager, Connie Russell.

Samoset Resort, a classic resort in mid-coast Maine, will be launching its brand new winter season of holidays, romantic retreats, family activities and winter group meetings. The Holiday Happenings at the resort will commence on Thanksgiving weekend and last through to New Year’s Day. After the New Year, the resort will remain open for a Winter Wonderland of activities for spa weekend getaways, school breaks and group meetings.

“This is The Samoset’s first return to winter season in three years and our staff and community are ready to welcome guests for this spectacular time of year!" said General Manager, Connie Russell. “We’ve got some terrific activities planned, as well as amenities and services to enhance the guest experience.”

The Samoset announced earlier in 2012 that the resort would be open year-round, a decision which was fueled by the completion of numerous additions to the resort in 2011 including a full-service, seaside spa, La Bella Vita and Enoteca wine bar, and three new luxury guest cottages. These recent improvements are the result of a multi-million dollar investment by the resort owners in an effort to bring the guest experience to a new level.

The new 2012/2013 winter season at Samoset will start with a series of Holiday Happenings from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. The hotel will be festively decorated and guests will be able to enjoy holiday packages, menus, and activities such as Brunch with Santa. The resort will also feature a new ice skating rink with bonfire and S’mores. La Bella Vita Ristorante will feature an outdoor Ice Bar set amongst the fire pit and fire lamps overlooking the ocean. Samoset’s Winter Weekends and School Break Vacations will feature a series of family activities, culinary events, kid’s recreation center, indoor pool, group health classes and custom Spa treatments for winter weather.

Leisure guests can take advantage of great rates and packages, including the Thanksgiving Package which includes accommodations, traditional Thanksgiving dinner buffet for 2, breakfast daily and children’s activities. This package starts at $229 per night. The Winter Wonderland Package which includes accommodations, breakfast and dinner daily, a $50 spa credit and all resort amenities and activities, starts at just $249 per night.

The year-round status and festive nature of the winter season is great news for groups as well as leisure guests. Groups can now take advantage of great rates for holiday parties as well as generous incentives to book a party in one of the resort’s beautiful ballrooms or the La Bella Vita Ristorante. Incentives for party planners include gift certificates for complimentary hotel stays, meals and golf. Room rates begin at just $99 per night and holiday parties range from lavish buffet style to elegant sit-down meals.

The Samoset gears up for the winter on the heels of a very busy and successful summer season. In 2012 improvements guests enjoyed included an updated and renovated 21,000 feet of meeting space, as well as new iPod docking station radios, refrigerators, Keurig coffee makers, safes and complimentary bottled water in every guestroom at the hotel. The resort also introduced a very popular 9-hole Disc Golf Course overlooking the ocean, adding this new amenity for guests and groups, as part of the Ultimate Backyard Experience, which also includes tennis, basketball, zero entry outdoor pool, shuffleboard, volleyball, badminton, croquet, horseshoes and a playground.
