The location was perfect. The house itself, settled among the row of historice Stockton houses on Gurney Street was very special indeed. Every detail in the construction and decoration was perfectly realized. Fred and Joan had thought of every little detail to make our visit to their House perfect, right down to the lovely outdoor shower. The snacks and tea... More

My husband and I spent close to five days at the Gingerbread House last week. The location was ideal, about two blocks to the beach and 3-4 blocks from most restaurants. Joan and Fred are the the perfect B&B hosts; they went beyond our expectations as far as our room and our meals, ensuring that we were comfortable and happy... More

My stay at the Gingerbread was simply wonderful. From pulling up at the front door to my leaving, everything and everyone was lovely. The place is beautifully decorated in a Victorian theme and is spotless. The bathroom was immaculate and the bed very comfortable. It is also located less than a block to the beach and a couple of blocks... More

Joan and Fred are extremely accommodating. We were looking for a B&B that was close to the beach, shopping and served a lovely breakfast. The Gingerbread House had that and much more. The house is extremely clean and wonderful to explore. They have coffee, water and small snacks available all day. They provide bath towels, beach towels and beach chairs.... More

The Ginger Bread house was our first experience staying at a B&B, we were of course nervous of staying at a B&B but I am happy to say that Joan made our stay and Honeymoon a rememberable time. The breakfast was great, rooms were very nice and the hospitality we experienced was wonderful. The property is so well maintained and... More

I can't wait to go back. The house, the location to the beach and shopping area, the breakfast, the hospitality, all perfect! Fred and Joan truly made it their business to make sure we had everything we needed. We went with our daughters, both 19, and we all left happy and wanting to return again next summer. We stayed in... More

Joan and Fred are great people who make you feel very welcome. They have a beautiful house with a great location. It is a short walk to the beach and also a short walk to the downtown area. Breakfast every morning is great. Thanks for everything.

GBH is an EXCEPTIONAL B & B.. The rooms are decorated with tender loving care. The rooms are kept immaculately clean. The bed was comfortable. You literally cannot beat the location. 4 houses from the beach and maybe a 5 minute walk, if that, to the center of town. The neighborhood is quiet. Fred and Joan are incredible hosts. They... More
