Welcome to Nautilus by the Sea an ocean front bed and breakfast located on the coast of Southern Maine.

Please be our guests in comfortable lodging in the quaint, historic village of Ocean Park, just south of Old Orchard Beach and north of Saco sitting directly on 7 miles of sandy beach.

Enjoy the beauty of the ocean at affordable rates.

There's nothing between the Nautilus By The Sea and the water but sea roses, grassy dunes and 7 miles of white sandy beach. Saco Bay, protected by Prout's Neck to the northeast and Biddeford Pool to the southeast, provides spectacular sunrises and invigorating surf - a perfect spot for rest and relaxation, yet there are many types of activities close by.

Located in Ocean Park, Maine, this quiet, historic community of cottage-style homes provides summer educational activities as well as vacation fun. Built in 1890, the Nautilus has been continuously renovated and updated but maintains the look and feel of a Victorian summer cottage. From late spring to late fall; the Nautilus has 12 rooms, suites and an apartment available. Walking, swimming, surf and sun bathing are a boardwalk away while shuffleboard, tennis and shopping are a minute in the other direction.

Then, within minutes of the Nautilus, you will find golf, deep sea fishing, whale watching, a variety of concerts, boat excursions, fine shops and restaurants, theaters as well as stock car and harness racing. L.L. Bean of Freeport is 30 minutes north, while the outlets of Kittery are 30 minutes south.

Our Victorian cottage offers large, comfortable rooms with ceiling fans, dramatic views and a spacious lounge for TV viewing, reading and relaxing. A complimentary continental breakfast served on the enclosed dune front porch begins each day.
