After having enjoyed the Five Gables Inn every September for a number of years, we invited my wife's brother and his wife to join us this time. We had been so effusive in our praise of the Inn that they came with very high expectations and, as we knew would happen, their expectations were met and exceeded. The gourmet breakfasts, the friendliness and helpfullness of the owners, Mike and De and of innkeeper Lisa, the tea and cookies in the afternoon, the Port and chocolates in the evening, and the spotlessly clean and comfortable accommodations combine to make this our favorite New England Inn. It's so nice to be able to relax away from the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor and yet be close enough that it's just a short drive to the shops and restaurants. We can't wait till next year!
- 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
