Reviewed 10 October 2013

We've booked a cottage and were lucky:

We've got one with a nice ocean view and overall we liked the place.
It was very cozy and so quiet!
There's definitely something to it, when you can only here seagulls and the ocean.

The ladys at the reception were nice and everything worked in the cottage. The WiFi connection was excellent.

The only thing I would improve:
The cottage we've staid in needs refurbishing. But nothing serious that wouldn't be a reason not coming back

We had a cottage with a porch looking out across the water to the Camden hills (I think) in the distance. Very comfortable, friendly, private, and `10 minutes by car to restaurants in downtown Belfast.

Our cozy cabin was newly remodeled was very nice and had all that we needed. The private deck looked out toward the ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The area is beautiful and relaxing. We stayed in the larger cottages 20 years ago with our extended family and it is just as nice now as it was then. This visit brought back fond memories of when our children were small. For a wonderful meal go to Young's Lobster Pound and eat on the dock.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit on the beach.

Stayed one night in September. Convenient location close to several good restaurants. Room was clean and well appointed. Loved the view, and it was reasonably priced. We look forward to staying there again.

My wife and I were headed up the coast to do some camping and wanted a one night stop over to ease the driving time. We found Colonial Gables here on TA and booked after reading the great reviews. We completely agree with many of the good things written by other travellers. Our stay was short but we found that:
1) Our cottage was clean and warm with nice amenities and a great view
2) The location is fantastic - a couple of minutes into Belfast which is a GREAT little city. If you don't want to go into Belfast, there are plenty of other restaurants/shops right around the hotel itself.
3) The ladies at the desk are super friendly and helpful
4) You've got a great stretch of beach right at your doorstep
You can see by the prices that it's a great value as well. We're campers at heart but have it on our list next time we're heading up the coastline - and next time for a longer stay!

My husband and I spent a week here in one of the cottages. This was our second year and we plan on returning again. Spectacular views of the Penobscot Bay. Private beach is awesome and very secluded. A place to forget about life for awhile. We give it 5 stars.

I was in the hotel room 31. There wasn't a lot of room but it worked for me. Room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. Every room was a deck to sit on. The only draw back is the railing blocks the view of the bay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I would defiantly stay here again.
