Stayed at the Five Gables for only one night on the way from Belfast to Kennebunkport. Wish we'd been able to stay longer. Mike could not have been a better host. Full of information about the area and very friendly and helpful. Loved sitting on the porch in the afternoon with a book and again in the evening after dinner. Mike has suggested we walk down to the lobster pound for dinner, which we did. It started to rain on the walk back and as soon as Mike realized that, he jumped in his truck to come find us and take us back. The next day while walking around town, we heard a honk behind us and someone shouting our names. It was Mike just wishing us a good journey south. Would go back in a heart beat.
- 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
