Meal guarantees are the minimum number to be provided and charged to the group. Meal guarantees are required ten business days (or two weeks) prior to the scheduled function. The two-week notice does not include Saturday and Sunday. If no guarantee is provided, the original estimate or the actual number served, whichever is greater, will be the number for which you will be charged. Should the number in your party change
considerably, we reserve the right to move your group to a more appropriately sized room or location. Although
Samoset Resort does not set time limits on ballroom wedding events, we do not allow for more than five hours total of bar service.
Samoset Resort reserves the right to refuse alcohol to any party in accordance with Maine State laws. Five (5) hours maximum bar service for all wedding receptions.
All food and beverage functions are subject to a 20% service charge and prevailing Maine State tax. Prices are subject to change. Audiovisual equipment set up is subject to a 20% service charge.
