Your hostess, Martha Scudder, has been welcoming guests to Oak Gables since 1987 and takes genuine pleasure in seeing that everyone feels completely at home. Testimony to how much guests love staying here is the large number who return year after year. Guests often say that this charming home, with its tasteful furnishings and cozy, comfortable and immaculate bedrooms, makes them feel like they’re coming home.
Guests staying in the Main House are served a generous breakfast each morning. After breakfast, you might like to sit out on the front porch, take a dip in the pool, or simply relax under the umbrellas by the pool. In the spacious living room, you’ll find many reading materials as well as cable TV.
A delightful experience awaits down at the boathouse. You’re welcome to sit on its 14 x 16 foot deck and enjoy the sight and sounds of a variety of birds as you watch the tidal Damariscotta River wind its way through the peaceful beauty of the Maine countryside. Inside the boathouse is a tournament-quality ping-pong table.
Oak Gables offers a wide selection of lodging choices to suit our guests’ various needs. Free WiFi is provided in all accommodations.
There are four traditional guest rooms on the second floor of the Main House. Furnished with antiques, quilts and other welcoming touches, they offer lovely views of the grounds and river. A large, full shared bath is located a few steps from the four rooms. There is also a half bath on the first floor.
On the ground floor of the Main House is a sunny Guest Wing that includes a large bedroom with a California king-size bed (longer than a regular king-size bed), a private bath and eat-in kitchen. Across the lawn in the Carriage House are a deluxe Studio Apartment and a very spacious one-bedroom River View Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a fully equipped kitchen area and the River View Apartment has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with a washer/dryer. Both apartments have full private baths and cable TV, and linens are provided.
Also on the grounds is a charming three-bedroom Cottage overlooking the river. Offering an exceptionally peaceful setting, it is completely furnished with a fully equipped kitchen and two full baths. The Cottage’s large screened-in porch is perfect for whiling away warm Maine evenings. Linens are provided.
Breakfast is not included with either the apartments or the cottage.
For the safety and comfort of all guests, smoking is not permitted in any of the buildings. Sorry, no pets.
