We heard about the inn from family members who stayed earlier in the year. We traveled late in the season, so many places were closed or closing. Steve and Susan, the proprietors, could not have been nicer, or more helpful. They guided us in our travels and truly seemed excited to be the owners of this inn. The food was... More

30+ years of staying at this Inn. Starting with Paul and Ellen who were wonderful innkeepers, transitioning to Mike and De Kennedy for 16 years of gracious innkeeping and entertainment from Mike and warm hugs from De. They earned their retirement and the Inn now welcomes Susan and Steve - hand-picked by Mike and De to carry on the traditions... More

Fab stay. Very nice room, wonderful views. Really friendly people, and great breakfast. We were four people, (two couples), and both rooms were very nice. A little off the beaten track if you want to walk out for dinner, but the views compensated.

We didn't think that New England in the fall could be more perfect. But, staying at Five Gables Inn changed our minds. The innkeepers, Steve & Susan, are absolutely lovely hosts. They make you feel special and let you know from the lovely accommodations and homemade cookies at 3:30 every day, to the early morning coffee bar and gourmet breakfasts.... More

On a scale of 1 to 5, Five Gables Inn is an 8! One of the best getaway experiences we've had in years, and our opinion was shared by ALL of our fellow guests. Attention to detail, thoughtful and warm surroundings, outstanding cuisine, and friendly greetings from Susan and Steve all assured us that we'll be back when our schedules... More

This year was our third visit in three years to the Five Gables Inn, East Boothbay, ME. ... and we will be back next year, and the next. This is a little spot of Heaven right here on Earth. The 100+ year old inn is simple, but majestic. The inn sits high above Linkekin Bay away from all of the... More

Our family stayed at Five Gables for 3 nights and would have liked to stay longer. The setting is lovely with a wrap around porch overlooking the spectacular bay! Breakfasts were fantastic and varied each morning. Around 3 in the afternoon they serve tea and homemade cookies. Susan and Steve were happy to recommend restaurants and things to do in... More

Can't say enough good about this beautiful, peaceful, charming and wonderful place! First the location is spectacular - overlooking a cove, from the sprawling front porch you can sit and watch boats, see Linkekin Bay lined with charming cottages and trees. No other tourists in view aside from those staying at the inn, a few people walking their dogs, some... More

We spent 3 nights at Five Gables on the way to Acadia National Park and had a great experience. Steve greeted us when we parked, he was outside trimming shrubbery. He walked us to our room and gave us a quick tour of the building. Our room was lovely, clean, bright and comfortable with lots of windows to let in... More
