The Nautical Mile resort is located approx 1.5 to 2 hours drive north of Boston in a town called Wells.
The resort is a horseshoe shape off the main road, with tennis courts in the middle. It has a reception that is open till 5pm each night apart from Fridays for check ins. There is also a laundry room. The accommodation is over two floors with open wooden stairs up to the first floor. We stopped in a one bed unit which was on the first floor, and it had wi-fi, a small kitchen , sofa bed, table, chairs and tv. The kitchen had cooker, toaster, microwave and dishwasher. There was a separate bedroom and a bathroom. Not recommended for more than 2 people due to the size.
The resort is near the beaches of the area and also near the nice villages of Ogunquit, and Kennebunkport. We went to the outlet malls at Kittery and at Freeport. We drove up to Brunswick to get on the train to Rockland, and we also drove down to Gloucester to go on the 7 seas whale watch where we managed to see quite a number of humpback whales, fin whales and dolphins.
There are plenty of good places to eat around the area and a large Hannafords supermarket across the road.
A nice place to be based to get to visit lots of things in the area.
