ROCKLAND, Maine — Owners of Samoset Village condominiums filed a lawsuit Monday against the company that owns the Samoset Resort.

The 41 owners, organized as the nonprofit Samoset Resort Village Condominium Association, want access to a pool and to certain financial records and to be repaid for half of what it cost the association to build a bathhouse.

The association filed the suit Monday in Knox County Superior Court against the company that owns the adjacent resort, Samorock LLC.

According to the complaint, Samorock denied members access to a new outdoor pool last season and has begun denying access this season. However, the company has allowed others access, the lawsuit states.

“Samorock currently permits guests of the Samoset Resort and users of the time-share units of the resort use of the [pool],” the condo association alleges.

The association also alleges that it agreed to pay for half the costs of a bathhouse near the pool, but that it has absorbed all of the costs, totaling $92,643.70. Finally, the association alleges that Samorock has not shared certain financial records since 2008, which the nonprofit states was a contractual obligation of the company.

The lawsuit states that Samorock has ignored the demands from the nonprofit.
