We stay at the Five Gables every year because we know Mike and De are going to do everything within their power to make sure we have a great stay. It's hard to find things to say that aren't just a rehashing of the positive reviews by other guests, but the incredibly delicious breakfasts, the views of Linekin Bay from our room and from the spacious porch, the cozy common area with a crackling fire in the fireplace, and the graciousness of the hosts bear repeating. Oh, and so do the fresh-baked cookies and tea in the afternoon and the chocolates and your choice of Port, Madiera or Cream Sherry in the evening. We travel extensively and have stayed in some outstanding properties but nowhere do we feel more at home and more "taken care of" than at Five Gables. If you plan to visit the mid-coast area of Maine you owe it to yourself to stay at the Five Gables Inn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imagine waking with the blissful feeling that your room resembles a Maine cottage overlooking a picturesque bay. Scenic and Serene East Boothbay is a 200 year old village just 5 minutes from Boothbay Harbor, Maine, though you will feel light years away. Here we enjoy peaceful mornings on the inns porch, no traffic passing by, and a view of the lobster boats bobbing in the harbor. Yet a short five minute drive puts you in the middle of Boothbay Harbor with windjammers, trips to Monhegan Island, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, lobster eating, galleries and shopping. ... more less
