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

We had room #9 and when making reservations we were told that it was a queen bed in our room. This certainly was not a queen bed; I have one at home, I would say it was a full size bed in this room. Good thing we like each other to sleep that close. Husband told them we were celebrating... More

There really aren't any cheap places to stay in St. Michaels. That said, Five Gables Inn & Spa isn't crazy expensive, just more than I might normally like to pay. We had a very comfortable room, the folks were very friendly, and our dog was greeted just as kindly as we were (better, actually, he got a bone and a... More

The Five Gables is right in the heart of St. Michaels, and is a pleasant, peaceful place to stay. Our room had a sweet little balcony overlooking a garden with a small brook bordered by tiger lilies. The room wasn't huge, but it was nicely decorated and had all we needed - a king-sized bed, a closet, a couple of... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and found everything to be very nice. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. The only thing that could use improvement is the breakfast. For a cost of $295 a night I think a more substantial breakfast should be offered instead of a simple continental breakfast.

I stayed 1 night at the B&B and was disappointed in the service received. The room was nice, but for $450 a night w/tax I would expect MUCH better. The furniture looked worn, there are no curtains to keep the bright light out of the bedroom and when the sun is up at 6am, so are you. The shower was... More
