My husband and I stayed in the Studio Apt. for 4 nights. Martha, the owner/operator was a pleasure to interact with. She has a gift of making you feel welcome and at home on her beautifully landscaped and maintained property. Sleep quality was good. The queen bed is a bit firm, but had a warm and comfy feel to it....

Oak Gables turned out to be an unexpected treat. It is a venerable Maine estate that harkens back to a different time with granite pillars at the entrance and a long curving driveway situated on the beautiful Damariscotta River. We stayed for two nights in one of the upstairs rooms in the main house with the bathroom down the hall,...

Darmariscotta is a beautiful small town at the base of the peninsula that features the Pemaquid Light at its tip. It is in a Maine coastal area worthy of exploration. Oak Gables sits on an estate at the edge of town overlooking the river. The rooms are well furnished, spacious, and immaculate. Those expecting a private bath might be forewarned...

This place looks to be an old estate on a piece of land that juts out into the tidal estuary; it's on a hill with slopes going down to the water. It's within easy walking distance of downtown also, and part of lovely historic neighborhood. The rooms are large and quiet. No traffic noise as it's well off the street...

Hubby and I really enjoyed staying here. It was almost like being at home. Martha is such a gracious hostess. We stayed in the Studio Apt overlooking the Damariscotta River. It has a full kitchen, living area, dining nook, queen bed, full size bath and a private deck. Internet and cable TV are there. The grounds are especially beautiful. Great...

We found our visit in mid-January a delight. The tourists are all gone and the bare naked winter property remains spectacular and is enhanced by a special quiet and peace. It's pleasant to stroll the grounds and an easy walk to town. Martha and her friendly companion, Dickens, add to the charm. We plan to return!

Oak Gables was obviously an estate on the river. Really lovely grounds. Should be great for birdwatchers. Lovely back porch where you can watch the river. We stayed in the Studio apartment. Very big and very private. Nothing fancy, but very clean and nicely appointed without a lot gew gaws all over the place.

We've lost track of how often we've stayed at Oak Gables B&B in the beautiful little Maine town of Damariscotta. Our stay is always wonderful, thanks to our host, Martha Stoddert, her delicious hot breakfasts, the spacious yet cozy rooms, and the view from our window of the tidal Damariscotta River. Oak Gables is a grand 19th century house perched...

Our week in the Cottage at Oak Gables is almost over and we are all very sad to have to leave. The cottage is a charming 3-bedroom, 2-bath cabin complete with full kitchen and comfortable living room withTV and wi-fi. Oh, yes, and an amaziing screened in front porch. The reason for the stay was for a reunion of sisters!...
