We've stayed here several times years ago and was always pleased. When I booked this year I noticed it was different owners, so I was a bit apprehensive. Luckily I had nothing to worry about. The Inn is still as relaxing as ever! My wife has food allergies and they made sure that she received an excellent breakfast. The rooms...

I travel 200 days a year on business, staying in everything from five star hotels to run of the mill hotel chains. This was by far one of the best places to unwind where I could relax. The owners, Steve and Susan, were extremely gracious, welcoming, informative, and just plain fun to be around. The quality of the Inn is...

Beautiful view! Charming rooms! Delicious food! Gracious hosts in Steve and Susan! My husband chose the inn with no input from me. I told him he could make the plans for all future vacations, he did so well with his selection for this trip. We really wanted to stay permanently.

I recently stated at Five Gables Inn with a group of friends. The owners went way out of their way to accommodate us and make us comfortable. The location on the water and the porch to view it from is beautiful. The Inn itself is comfortably and nicely furnished. The full home homemade breakfast was excellent and they serve tea...

We heard about the inn from family members who stayed earlier in the year. We traveled late in the season, so many places were closed or closing. Steve and Susan, the proprietors, could not have been nicer, or more helpful. They guided us in our travels and truly seemed excited to be the owners of this inn. The food was...

30+ years of staying at this Inn. Starting with Paul and Ellen who were wonderful innkeepers, transitioning to Mike and De Kennedy for 16 years of gracious innkeeping and entertainment from Mike and warm hugs from De. They earned their retirement and the Inn now welcomes Susan and Steve - hand-picked by Mike and De to carry on the traditions...

Fab stay. Very nice room, wonderful views. Really friendly people, and great breakfast. We were four people, (two couples), and both rooms were very nice. A little off the beaten track if you want to walk out for dinner, but the views compensated.

We didn't think that New England in the fall could be more perfect. But, staying at Five Gables Inn changed our minds. The innkeepers, Steve & Susan, are absolutely lovely hosts. They make you feel special and let you know from the lovely accommodations and homemade cookies at 3:30 every day, to the early morning coffee bar and gourmet breakfasts....

On a scale of 1 to 5, Five Gables Inn is an 8! One of the best getaway experiences we've had in years, and our opinion was shared by ALL of our fellow guests.

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
