Samoset Resort: Quiet Luxury in Maine
To truly appreciate what this property has to offer, though, you need to walk through the main building, across the golf course and along the water a bit. Or, you can have someone give you a lift in a golf cart, which might be a bit easier.
The Flume Cottage sits apart from the rest of the resort, resulting in seclusion within seclusion. This1,500 square foot cottage, refurbished in 2010, sits right on the water, with a back deck that sports drop-dead views of the breakwater, with its lighthouse at the end. And, you can soak in the sights from the Jacuzzi that's out there. Since the only adjacent action on land is golf, you don't need to worry about the slightest noise intruding on your getaway, except, perhaps, a knock at the door when your meals arrive.
A brief, upscale getaway in Maine can be the antidote to the pressures of daily urban professional life. Indulge in a bit of comfortable luxury at the Fluke Cottage up at the Samoset, and it becomes hard to remember what the normal workday is like.
