All I can say is that the Samoset went above and beyond for my husband and I. Our original date had to be changed due to a deployment to Afghanistan, so we had to reschedule, but that was no problem for the staff at the Samoset. Will Clayton was the event planer, and made everything happen with no issues. The only other date that we could pick was going to have to be during the off-season time because my husband and I were scheduled to move overseas shortly after my return from deployment. Again, they acted like this was no problem. Even though the resort was in the process of going through major renovations, you could hardly tell. They brought in enough staff to make it look like they were up and running for the season, were able to house all of our guests from out of town, upgraded many peoples rooms at no extra charge, let Mike and I check in to our room before they had planned, upgraded us to the Presidential Suite, they went out of their way to make it all work. Will was there at the drop of a hat when I needed something, and made the event 100% stress free. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Mike and I look forward to making the Samoset a vacation spot for many years to come. The area is beautiful, the accommodations are exceptional, and the staff is the best!
