Five Gables Inn is a beautifully kept old inn situated on a slight slope overlooking a bay in East Boothbay, Maine, a few miles from Boothbay Harbor. All anyone needs to know about Five Gables Inn is that it is phenomenal. Steve and Susan are friendly and gracious hosts. You have to keep in mind that this is not a... More

We recently spent a few days at the Five Gables. Wow, did we have a great time. The breakfast in the morning is a beautiful spread of delicious choices. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated. The place sits off the beaten path, so it is quiet and serene, with an amazing view of the bay. Within walking distance is... More

Five Gables Inn is a beautiful inn, overlooking the Bay. The rooms are comfortable , the inn keepers are especially nice, and the views from the inn are picturesque. It is a very quiet relaxing place to wind down. I certainly will return another time. The breakfast was great!

Steve and Susan, your hosts, have created the perfect combination for "cozy" on the Mid Maine coastline. Susan's fresh-made breakfast will wow you. Our room, with a fireplace; to die for. Perfect location. We never wanted to leave. In fact, we extended our stay and cut a night in Boston off our trip to be there longer. This is a... More

My friend/travel companion and I found this inn to be charming and off the beaten path on a dead end road a few miles from the congested Boothbay Harbor. The innkeepers are very friendly and hardworking, and the breakfast buffet is fabulous! First floor rooms (where we stayed) were tiny, and this felt a bit limiting on a rainy day.... More

This was the first time we have traveled to Maine and we stayed at the Five Gables Inn. When people asked us how our trip was, we said "PERFECT!" This B & B is everything I pictured it would be and more because of the welcoming, hospitable hosts and owners Steve and Susan! Every room is clean and comfortable and... More

The inn itself is a beautiful sight, sitting across from the water and the public boat pier. The inside is homey and so comfortable,painted in beautiful ocean colors. The afternoon tea and cookies (in our case delicious macaroons!) were a sweet addition to our arrival. Steve and Bonnie are both very informative and helpful in guiding you to local restaurants...

The Five Gables Inn is a lovely, unassuming coastal Inn with a beautiful view of the ocean. The rooms are comfortable and the buffet breakfast was excellent. The Innkeepers were gracious and most helpful. This Inn is located in East Boothbay and only a short drive to Boothbay Harbor.

We, too, found this inn from reviews, and were so fortunate that they had availability due to the last week of off-season. I cannot imagine a more beautiful setting and a finer b&b----all that Maine mid-coast "should" be, without all the commercialism of this decade. The Inn is minutes from the center of activities, should you choose, but stands "... More

We found this B&B through Trip Advisor and I "ditto" all of the positive comments. Steve and Susan could not have been more welcoming. This historic 1897 property was in excellent condition with each room decorated beautify. I was allowed to peak into several unoccupied rooms. The breakfasts were served with attention to detail in preparation and presentation, as was... More
