Twin Gables review

4.4 on August 29, 2016

Very pleasant stay


Highly recommended B&B

4.6 on August 24, 2016

- Regina is wonderful. A great cook and great company. Her dog Rascal is friendly and adorable. - Breakfasts were delicious and filling - with snacks to go for enjoyment on the beach/wherever. Eating on the screened-in porch was very enjoyable. - Room was on the small side (not that you spend much time there anyway), but clean and charming. Bed was comfortable, and the house was very quiet at night. No concerns about thin walls/etc. - Afternoon tea has snacks and wine! - Fridge and ice maker available - Great location for walking to the beach, to the Washington square shopping area, and to lots of great restaurants.


Awesome B&B!!

My sister and I enjoyed our time at your bed and breakfast. Your guide for new eaterys were great. The company we meant from all over country was entertaining. Our time with rascal was also welcoming. Look forward to seeing you again.

Cute little B&B in Cape May!

Twin Gables was a cute Bed & Breakfast and the lady that owned the house was very friendly and personable. The Callahan room I stayed in had everything I needed and was kept very clean. My only complaint of the room was that the sink was too small to do anything except wash your hands. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and I enjoyed eating on the porch. There was also a selection of snacks put out in the afternoon which was a nice touch. The house dog was also very cute and friendly! I would highly recommend staying at this B&B if planning a trip to Cape May. The walk to the beach was only 2.5 blocks which isn't bad for the price and overall value of your stay. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Cape May!
