This was our first time to visit Maine and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect Inn to start our vacation. Five Gables Inn is a wonderful place where you can quietly read a book by the fireplace or out on the porch bundled up in one of the many afghans/blankets provided. Owners Susan and Steve were very accommodating. Rooms... More

We recently returned from a two night stay at the Five Gables Inn; I've stayed there several times, and always look forward to it. Steve and Susan are excellent hosts, and provide delicious breakfasts, tea and fresh cookies in the afternoon, and a selection of brandies and sherries in the evening. The rooms are charming and comfortable, and the living... More

I would highly recommend the Five Gables Inn. The first thing you see on approaching the Five Gables is the wonderful large welcoming porch. The inside is charming with several seating groupings by a nice size fireplace. Our room was on the third floor in one of the gable rooms and had a fabulous view of the bay. It had... More

We spent two days during our visit to Maine in early Sept 2015. Located in East Boothbay overlooking beautiful Linekin Bay. Quiet and peaceful location. Our room was perfect for a 2 night stay with a very comfortable queen size bed. The breakfast prepared by the owner/chef was really special. I can't imaging there is a nicer B & B... More

The inn is in a very quiet street overlooking the bay. There is almost nothing else nearby, but it's about a 10 minute walk to the nearest restaurant. We stayed in room 8, which was very pleasant. There's no air conditioning, but this room has windows on 2 sides that can be left open at night as the road outside... More

We stayed at the Five Gables Inn for two nights on the recommendation of a friend that had stayed there last year. The first thing to be sure you understand is that this inn is not ON the water...it is across the street from the water, a bay with lots of boats. You look across and between several houses that...

Sue and Steve couldn't have been better innkeepers. The positive energy was felt immediately as I entered the front door of this interesting and very clean inn. Cookies and tea awaited me in the afternoon and in the evening brandies were added to the table. The guests were engaging as we sat on the veranda munching our tasty breakfasts and... More

This inn is in the quiet, non-commercial section of the Boothbay Harbor area. It overlooks a beautiful harbor. The owners and their staff are friendly, gracious and responsive, from welcoming guests when checking in to putting on an afternoon pot of coffee to serving a truly delicious breakfast from entirely fresh ingredients. The room was very clean and appointed with... More

The location was ideal for a relaxing start to our vacation. Very clean bright rooms with an ocean view. A beautiful veranda allowed us to sip our wine, eat our snacks and enjoy the view. Breakfast was superb with good varity to meet each of our diverse needs. A great find. We will return.

This is a charming country inn in a quiet location a few minutes's drive from the little town of Boothbay. Many guest rooms, as well as the broad wraparound outdoor covered porch, have fabulous views of the charming little harbor, which is only a few steps away from the inn.. The rooms are cozy and comfy, the hosts are pleasant,... More
