The new owners have upgraded just enough at the Nautilus to make it a great family vacation spot without losing any of its casual beach house charm. The breakfasts are a feast of options (a selection of dry cereals, yogurt, freshly-cut fruit salad, homemade bread and muffins plus at least one egg dish each morning) and the renovated main floor...

This was our first trip to Maine. We are a family of two adults and a toddler. We stayed in the lower level apartment and it was perfect for our needs - toddler could cry, squeal, run, etc. and we didn't feel like we had to "shh" him for other guests. Jim & his wife were so nice and hospitable.... More

Very nice place right on the beach. Very quiet little town. Township is dry (no alcohol) so you don't get the wild drunks on the beach that you can elsewhere. Very spacious common areas. We don't usually stay in B & B s but this one is nice with very good staff. Very friendly and helpful.

Right behind the dune with a great view and the shorted possible walk to the beach. The new owners have put a lot of time and money into upgrading this beautiful old building. There is now a large, airy great room with comfortable seating, an open dining area for breakfast or your own carry-in at other times, wi-fi, and more.... More

We just spent 3-days / 2-nights here with two of our children and had a wonderful time once again (last visited was July 2013 with no children). Our hosts, Jim, Marsha, and Ressa did a great job at making us feel at home and accommodating our needs. This charming 100+ year old home is: fun to stay at; imperfect in... More

I was very impressed with The Nautilus when I stayed in the penthouse suite! We were greeted by the owners who were warm and welcoming. They introduced us to the manager who made us feel right at home. I was impressed by the cleanliness of our room and how the websites pictures represented our room perfectly. I was also very...

After a couple delays earlier in the year, we finally made it to our favorite B&B over the Columbus Day weekend. Our stay was only for two nights but the time we spent there was a much needed and much enjoyed "get away". Jim and his staff couldn't be more welcoming and hospitable. The inn is spotless and with the... More

We have stayed at the Nautilus a number of times but this was the first with the new owners. We arrived late but had alerted staff. There is a phone in kitchen and one of the owners came over to welcome us. Jim was most friendly and the changes that have been made were most impressive. There is the breakfast... More

We are hotel people and B&B's just aren't our thing. But the Nautilus has gone a long way to change all of that. We recently stayed at this quaint beach-side Inn as part of a group of six couples, all on an adventure. We are used to bright and shiny, but this extraordinary stay was a leisurely trip into a...
