I was able to see online that they had room for us as a last minute decision to go away for the night. I requested a king, first floor room. Check in was a breeze, and we got a room in the back on the first floor. We were given a quick tour of the facility and we quickly settled... More

We went to the Gables over Halloween weekend. the weather was nasty, but the Inn was warm and inviting. We upgraded this time to a King room with a double jacuzzi . The room comes with a fireplace as well. The room was comfortable and inviting considering the winds were kicking up when we arrived. We were welcomed by Grace... More

Totally underwhelmed with front desk staff. Upon check in, woman did not crack a smile. Check-out was similarly 'cool' and business-like. We were not asked if we enjoyed our stay; no one thanked us for staying there. Room was charming, but nothing special in terms of amenities. Expected more for the price and fact that this is a spa as... More

I guess I have been spoiled by my favorite B&B in Pittsburgh, The Inn on Negley, and I was expecting a similar experience at Five Gables, because it is in the same price range. From the time I walked into Room# 2 I was shocked at how substandard everything was. The room smelled musty and the toilet didn't flush. Although... More

My husband and I visited for a little weekend getway ... it was our 23rd wedding anniversary and we needed a little break. We had a very welcoming greeting, were given a mini tour of the facility and were escorted to our room. We stayed right in the main building and had scheduled spa services for that same day. We...

Lovely inn on charming street in St. Michaels. Great value! Purchased package that included two night stay in a king room, two massages, a skipjack cruise and a $50 gift card for dinner. Enjoyed the steam room and spa amenities. Massage was wonderful. Bikes were available for guests and we used them to ride around town. Continental breakfast was adorably... More

We've stayed at a few places in Boothbay and five gables is tops. Steve and Susan are wonderful hosts, it's a beautiful Inn and the breakfasts are beyond better than any B&B. We enjoyed being away from town, for the quiet and the harbor views, but easily accessible to Boothbay. Great place!

Magnificent place. Quiet, Cozy, Friendly and Charming. That about sums it up, except it is better. In the middle of everything in St Michaels, you pull in and leave the car. Everything in walking distance. Rooms are absolutely charming and comfortable. Indoor pool a definite plus, and the sauna and steam room are added bennies. They even have bikes that... More

My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary here. The room was nice and clean. The back porch was marred by some coffee and cigarette trash left there to greet us. This was mentioned to the front desk and then disappeared. Because of the rain we had some ants in the bathroom. This was also taken care of after alerting... More

The first time we stayed at Five Gables (in the summer), we rented a suite in the house across the street from the main building. Great privacy, the blue suite (we nick named it The Bird House) has two bathrooms. One bathroom is next to the bedroom with a massage shower with 4 shower heads and great water pressure. The... More
