Cozy cottage, very private, rocky beach, pets allowed. Pretty low-key in May, as Maine is just getting thawed out, really. Peaceful.
On the first night, we spotted two or three ants, and chuckled. Ants. Silly things. Didn't bother us in the least. Made a point of keeping all food items tightly closed or in the fridge. Didn't notice any more the next day. Went out gallivanting, came back and had dinner, went to bed.
We woke up after the second night to a tabletop absolutely *covered* in ants. Gross!
We only stayed the two nights, as our trip was a short one, so I never had a chance to ask for a new cottage, which I surely would have. My concern is that upon checking out, the person at the desk was unsurprised and unconcerned about the ants- had we been staying longer, I wonder if our request to be relocated would have been honored?
Other than the six-legged intruders, we very much enjoyed our stay at Colonial Gables. The bathroom was clean, the room was comfortable and warm, the kitchen utensils and plates were greatly appreciated. There's some great Thai food down the street, and Darby's Restaurant and Pub is a must-visit for sure, just a few miles down the road into downtown Belfast.
