Recommendations

Event with a View, iwedberg from Portland, Maine

Each year, I host a retreat and awards banquet for 75 to 100 guests, and finding an elegant facility that doesn't break the budget can be difficult. The Samoset was able to accommodate my needs within my budget guidelines. From the delicious buffet-style meals with customized, themed menus to the outstanding guest rooms, my attendees were well cared for and I was able to enjoy my event knowing that the staff at the Samoset had everything under control. My only "complaint" was the temperature of the main meeting room, but it was an exceptionally cold weekend in Maine in January, and the staff made every effort to adjust the temperature to meet our needs. My guests loved that every room had a view of the ocean, and that they were treated to luxury accommodations (the norm at the Samoset). They also enjoyed having an on-site lounge to visit during free time, and no one had to leave the facility for entertainment or activities. I was delighted by the professionalism of the staff, and their attentiveness to our needs. The event was such a success that we will be returning to the Samoset in 2007.

This is a magnificent stone church (more than 110 years old), resurrected into beautiful reception halls. The upper level with the gothic revival architecture, the magnificent columns, the high ceiling, the vintage pews, the unique vintage woodwork, the gorgeous stain glass windows, and the long isle walked by so many brides, in the past, is the perfect venue for the dream wedding ceremony, and any other gathering that is meant to be remembered for a lifetime, and even after. The lower level is a charming reception space, that can sit up to 300 people, with a generous area for dance, classy real wood banquet tables, and attractive chiavari chairs, to make your reception truly exceptional, in all aspects. The balcony is ideal for the bride's party and the bride's room. It is also rented separately for your small private parties of up to 20 people, when you need to truly impress your guests! Come and enjoy the Old St Mary's in its reborn old glory!
