This year was our third visit in three years to the Five Gables Inn, East Boothbay, ME. ... and we will be back next year, and the next. This is a little spot of Heaven right here on Earth. The 100+ year old inn is simple, but majestic. The inn sits high above Linkekin Bay away from all of the tourist attractions of Boothbay. It has a large front porch that overlooks the bay. Many guests enjoy breakfast on the porch. There is a very comfortable common area that is also used for breakfast and afternoon tea. Each of the 16 rooms is unique in size and decor. The food is awesome. Breakfast is gourmet and offers many selections. The new Innkeepers, Susan and Steve, have done a marvelous job. We have visited numerous B & B's, but Five Gables is at the top of the list for us.
- 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
