What an incredible B and B!!! Susan and Steve definitely know how to operate a premium B and B. Five Gables was our second stop on a two week New England tour and we did not want to leave! Both evenings we enjoyed visiting with other guests on a very comfortable front porch complete with rocking chairs and lap blankets!... More

Our Homestead for our first ever visit to Maine was the Five Gables Inn. We spent four remarkably comfortable nights here and use it a base of operations for travel up and down the coast. After beautiful meandering trips through a variety of scenery, towns and woodlands, coming home to the Inn was the highlight of the day. Sweeping views... More

We just finished a wonderful three night stay on 10/15/16. Our hosts Susan and Steve made every guest welcomed as family from the services to our conversations. Our room #1 "The Cottage" was cleverly designed and spacious. The front porch seating views of the Bay with the Lobsterman actively checking their pots was beautiful and the breakfast was just over... More

We stayed here one night over Columbus Day weekend as a stop over before we flew out from Portland. Five Gables Inn is a 100-year-old inn with all the charm of the past and the amenities of the present. We had a fireplace in our room (#5) and the innkeepers had left a Duraflame log for us to use.

Susan and Steve were the consummate hosts. The Inn was pristine; we were welcomed as family. The room was spacious yet cozy, but the most inviting and relaxing space was the porch. We enjoyed, wine, and met new friends on the porch. Breakfast was an epicurean experience and we want every recipe we were served. Can't say enough about the... More

We have visited 3 times over the last 12 years and this place never lets us down. Everything is perfect. The rooms, the breakfast, the afternoon port, the location and the hosts are delightful. We will go back if we get to Boothbay in the future. Thank you Susan and Steve.

Five Gables has it all. Charm, comfort, excellent food, service are all A+. Upon checking in we smelled the most wonderful aroma.....freshly baked oatmeal cookies. Impossible to only eat one. The sitting area is inviting with comfortable seating facing the Bay and around the fireplace. Following dinner out, we returned to the Inn and a fire was going.....just enough to... More

Love this inn and can't stop coming back. The rooms are all different; clean, homey and lovely. I believe all rooms have a view of the bay except one.

After leaving the quiet of Pemaquid, Maine we decided to head for the Boothbay Harbor. Looking for a B and B or Inn slightly outside Booth Bay Harbor we stumbled upon Five Gables Inn/East Boothbay.

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
