We had a lovely experience at the Twin Gables. The room was beautifully appointed. The owner is so nice and helpful in every way and she is a great cook. The breakfast and tea were delicious with all the homemade goodies. The owner's dog Rascal is so sweet and good company. We love The Twin Gables!

Both myself and my boyfriend stayed at Twin Gables this past weekend for our first time. We had a great time. Regina, the owner, is a pleasure to talk to and goes out of her way to make you happy. The room was extremely clean and the food was absolutely delicious. We will definitely go back and stay there again.

Close to the beach in a very quiet area of Cape May surrounded by wonderful Victorian homes. Comfortable and restful. Regina was a wonderful hostess.

Pleasant stay at the Twin Gables

The owner, Regina, really goes out of her way to make things as easy as possible. The breakfast was delicious and the porch was a great venue. It was close enough to the beach without having an ocean view, and the town of Cape May is very quaint with horse drawn carriages passing the B&B regularly. An excellent place to stay.

Wonderful B&B!

My friend and I go to Cape May every June for a girls' weekend. This was our first stay at Twin Gables. We definitely will be back every year from now on. From our host's warm hospitality, to the beautiful accomodations, to the delicious food everything was perfect! Rascal the dog is irresistable! We can't wait until our next visit. Thank you so much Regina for a memorable weekend!

Home away from home!

Regina and her friend Aileen were so hospitable! They couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was 5 star plus and it truly was! We will definitely visit again when in Cape May. Felt like a home away from home. Thanks, Patti and Ross Emrick

Having never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast, we had our doubts. Once we arrived at Twin Gables those doubts were immediately erased. We were greeted warmly by Regina and her pal Rascal, a beautiful Sheltie. Once inside, the ambience was calm and welcoming. Our room was cozy and very comfortable. The afternoon tea was very relaxing and provided delicious food and pleasant company. Breakfast, yummy, consisted of a colorful and tasty fruit cocktail, light and heavenly orange juice pancakes and bacon, cooked to perfection. Later, we enjoyed the delectable muffin, which was packed to go. Don't let me forget the coffee, best I've had in a long time. There is nothing like a slow brewed cup of coffee! Truly, everything Regina does is a labor of love. Thank you, Regina, you did an outstanding job! The Evanowski's, Daniel & Joann
