Maine is an iconic destination all year round, with tall peaks to climb for fall foliage, oceans to visit in the summer, and igloos to drink in come wintertime.

Midcoast, Maine, is a hotspot in the summertime with its quaint and beautiful coastal towns boasting spectacular views and an eclectic art scene. I’ve only visited the area in the warmer months for hikes up Mt. Battie and fresh seafood from local working lobstermen but I just learned it’s also an iconic place to visit in the winter and for good reason.

Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine

Resting right in Rockport, Samoset Resort is a beautiful luxury resort on the coast of Maine that offers a cozy and lovely stay during every season.

While the Midcoast area is gorgeous in the warmer months, they also offer an unbelievably gorgeous experience in the winter. Not only does the resort allow you to cross-country ski around the golf course, have fireplaces ready to warm you up, and a bowling alley for you to enjoy, but they also have glacier ice bars to grab food and drink in the coolest way ever.

Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge in Maine

Samoset is home to the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge for a unique dining experience all bundled up in a beautiful setting. 20,000 pounds of clear glacier ice is transformed into a bar and lounge, made up of exquisite ice carvings.

The sculptures are displayed starting at 5 p.m. on January 18 and will be open for you to experience the swanky lounge on the weekends of January 18-20 and January 25-26.

This is a spectacular, beautiful, and unique experience so mark your calendars!
