We stay in this area a lot, and this spot is perfect. Yes, it is reminiscent of an old bungalow colony but that's part of the appeal, so if you want something fancy and foo-foo, go somewhere else. The cottage we were in (#32) was very close to the beach, which is long and great for walking, was recently refurbished,... More

The view was nice and walking the beach was fun. The cottage had been updated with new curtains, and bed spreads. We did not use the kitchen but, it was nicely appointed. The king bed was lumpy and old. The road noise was bad, so we kept the noisy A/C on. Feather mattress pad was a nice idea, but, I... More

We just stayed the weekend in Cabin 27 upon recommendation of a coworker who stayed a couple years back in that unit. The grounds were well kept, the lawn groomed and perennial flowers established. Busy Route 1 was hidden from the cabins that sloped down to the bay. The gal at the front desk was quite accommodating with items of... More

Colonial Gables is a waterfront compound with cottages right on the beach/waterfront and a motel up the hill farther from the water but still offering lovely views. (We stayed in the motel.) This property is not fancy (an old-school independent motel) but it offers many positive features and excellent value. It is well located on Route 1 near Belfast with... More

We have stayed in a few places in the area as our daughter lives close by. In the off season we staff at the Fireside (formerly Comfort Inn) because of the indoor pool (good winter activity with the grandkids) but it's expensive in the summer so we decided to try this. We were upgraded from a motel room to a... More

We stayed for one night here on our way to the Maritime Provinces. When I went to check in at the office a lovely pair of ladies were very welcoming and quick with the check-in. Our cottage was quite close to the beach so the view was very nice. Since it was quite late in the day and we were... More

We only stayed one night here on a road trip up the eastern US, but it was a lovely stopover. The cabin was clean and well-equipped, especially the shower, which was powerful and hot. The verandah overlooks the beautiful Penobscot bay, and is lovely for early morning or evening relaxation. I would definitely recommend, as its proximity to some lovely... More

We had rented a studio cottage (unit number 3) for 6 nights. The ladies in charge were warm and welcoming. The place is very quiet with a spectacular view. The beach is rocky, but still, fun to walk on or to sit on a chair to read, while admiring the ocean. But... our unit was "vintage" and clean and, overall... More

We stayed at Colonial gables based on a Google earth search. We were looking for a place on the Maine coast that would be central to the locations we wanted to go. Lobster fest in Rockland, Acadia National Park, Fort Knox and others locations as well. Colonial gables is the perfect spot. We were lucky to have one of the... More

I felt like we were staying in a postcard scene. The ocean was less than a football field from our little porch on the cabin, fell asleep to crashing waves and embers from the bonfire on the beach. The ladies in charge are sweet and charming as others have mentioned. The really take an interest in every guest. Our cabin... More
