In July, 2006, my wife and I stayed for four nights at Five Gables Inn. I can't say enough good things about the Inn and its owners. The location is perfect, in East Boothbay, a quiet town with the Inn located directly on an ocean cove. Inn owners De and Mike Kennedy engage in conversation, but only if desired, never intrusive. Both identify sites of interest and make reservations for guests. Mike is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America which means the breakfasts are both creative and tasty. This is the only B&B I have visited where the guests all appear before the breakfast is served. They check out the menu for new and favorite items and chat over coffee before the breakfast is served. Highly recommended.
- 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
