“Great Location”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

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.

The place is well maintained and the staff is courteous and willing to help. The pool area is large and clean...the week we stayed the water was green but they worked hard at restoring it and by Thursday the green was gone. It is convenient to local restaurants, the beach and other sites

Room Tip: I like the rooms on the far right of the building..as u look at it from Congdons

We stayed in unit 134 on the backside of the property (and VERY convenient to Congdon's!). The unit was very clean and well stocked. The location is so convenient to many popular destinations, restaurants and beaches. There is a Hannafords just 2 minutes down the road that was very well staffed and stocked also.
The staff at The Nautical Mile is extremely friendly.
We are hoping to return very soon!

It was well maintained-service was excellant-the help was friendly and more than willing to accommodate any request we asked.The unit ,townhouse(2 bedrooms) was clean,updated and comfortable. We picked the wrong week ,weather wise lol (the previous wk broke records for March) but we had plenty of heat in spite of the temps.We will definitely make this one of our favorite places to return and would recommend it to all our family and friends ( 4 different families visited us while we were there and they were all impressed with it's accommodations) The only thing I would recommend that they add to the units is-glass bakeware for a casserole- a 11x17 pan and an extra frying pan as I found it limited to cook breakfast with just one frying pan. We had a very enjoyable week there!!!

OK so they said we were lucky to rent the big townhouses. Yes ,they were clean but owners need to pony up and replace big box TV's, provide more air-conditioning for 2nd & 3rd floor.We also had to turn off air so we could talk... Our stay was HOT!!! We also rented a 1 bedroom unit . Bad bed & TV review . We will probably not be back. We are'nt fussy people but need comfortable nights so we can enjoy our vaca. PLEASE upgrade your units .
No cell service in units(weird!) And spotty to no internet.

Your location is great,staff is wonderful, pool area top-notch, lovely grounds,grill/picnic area, horseshoes!! But who wants to pay for a terrible nights sleep?

We arrived at the Nautical Mile on Aug. 3rd with no reservation as the hotel that we did have our reservation at was disgusting and filthy to say the least. The woman at the front desk Kylie, was so helpful she found us a unit and let us preview it first to ease of minds because of the experience we just had. The unit was very nice, very clean, nicely decorated. We took the room happily and had a wonderful evening the recommendations of restaurants and places to go was right on! She was able to turn a horrible situation into a wonderful evening. We would definetly go back again and we are considering buying a timeshare at the property. Also, the pool and hot tub was very nice and clean. Very relaxing, wish we had booked here first!
