We chose the Five Gables Inn from the internet, basically because it looked nice and had availability during our vacation time. We were not disappointed. The rooms, the view, the food and the proprietors were all wonderful. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice and plan to return.

We have loved visiting East Boothbay for over fifteen years now and continue to stay at The Five Gables inn for each visit. The inn has continued to a place of relaxation and renewal for my husband and myself. Its location with the ocean breezes and seaside sounds are a wonderful way to fall asleep after a full day of...

My husband and I just spent two nights at the Five Gables Inn and I've never been so sad to leave a place before. Accommodations were more perfect than even their photos online - rooms are comfortable and decorated to a tee. We stayed in the big room on the 3rd floor - #14 - view was amazing and even... More

Susan and Steve were wonderful hosts and very helpful in every regard. Breakfast was something that I looked forward to every morning. Absolutely delicious and 5 star in everyway. My room was charming and had a view of the Bay. I would very much like to return next year.

This was the most special place we ever been to. The location was perfect: at the end of a quiet road, peacefully overlooking Linekin Bay, surrounding by flowers and a constant pleasant breeze. The family who own and run the Inn are friendly and helpful in all ways, but the breakfasts...oh my....are to die for. Susan, owner and chef, prepares... More

This B & B is one of the best we have stayed at! It is lovely, with a beautiful view and so many special touches. First they have tea with cookies each afternoon and serve cordials in the early evening and in the morning an incredible breakfast. The rooms are just wonderful, so relaxing and so beautifully decorated yet very... More

The Five Gables Inn is a delight. This was our second stay, both for only one night. Next time we really must stay for 2 or 3 nights! We have now stayed on the first floor and the third floor. If you don't mind stairs, the third floor rooms with window seats in the gables are lovely, (as long as... More

Our Innkeepers Susan and Steve were courteous, helpful, friendly, engaging, knowledgeable and their cooking was outrageous. the accommodations were first class and the views overlooking the harbor were soothing and wonderful. Every day was a culinary adventure when it came to breakfast and there were... More

We stayed 2 nights and the inn had a full house. I was surprised at how quiet it was. We stayed in the main house in Rooms 2 & 3. We enjoyed room 2 best. It had more room and a larger bathroom. Room 3 is very cozy so if you like space maybe choose another room. The inn keepers... More

This is an amazing place...a complete "10"! Susan and Steve are immaculate innkeepers who have thought of every detail in making the Five Gables perfect for a relaxing, restorative get-away. The inn is clean and tastefully decorated with a wide wrap around porch that invites one to sit and just enjoy the beautiful views of East Boothbay Harbor. And the... More
