Despite the challenge our GPS provided, we eventually found our way to "end of the road" spot where this handsome B & B sits perched overlooking E. Boothbay Harbor. If you want scenic and romantic, this could be your cup of tea. The rooms are smallish with little space to spread out if you're there for a long term stay,... More

It's a little out of the way from the touristy parts but I quite liked this inn. We had room number 9. It was small but cosy and sweet. I believe it is the only room with a diamond shaped window. I remember we slept well there. Breakfast was the best part, the B&B owners were very thoughtful on what... More

The Five Gables Inn is beautiful, friendly, has sweeping, spectacular views of East Boothbay Harbor, and a delicious hot breakfast. What makes this place really special is Susan & Steve Plau--no other B&B comes with these two wonderful innkeepers.

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
