Have you ever gazed at a fading postcard of a rambling old hotel somewhere on the coast of New England and wondered what it was like back in those days?
For more than a century The Five Gables Inn Bed and Breakfast has perched on a garden-framed hillside just down the lane from the East Boothbay General Store. It still has a broad verandah with a hammock and plenty of comfortable chairs overlooking a quiet cove where lobster boats tug at their moorings. And guests still linger in welcoming wing chairs in front of a big fireplace in the common room.
Beautifully renovated and restored to its original victorian charm, the inn offers fifteen rooms, each with private bath and spectacular views of Linekin Bay. Five of the rooms have fireplaces.
Nearby activities include whale watching, windjammer cruises, walking along rocky coastlines to picturesque lighthouses and eating plenty of lobster. Rates: $140-$235.
Hosts: Mike & De Kennedy
