This is the third time we have stayed with Regina and her doggies.The room is big enough and the bed is comfortable in the Dwyer room. Breakfasts are always good. She puts out a nice spread for Happy Hour. Ginger & Rascal the dogs are well behaved and very good hosts.

Our first B&B

We wanted to stay at a B&B for the December festivities and Twin Gables was a great selection. Regina did a fantastic job to make us feel at home. The breakfast and snacks were excellent. We plan to return next year for the festivities and plan to stay at Twin Gables again. Hopefully Regina's dog, Rascal, is up and around.

A pleasant surprise.
