My husband and I just returned from a truly amazing vacation to The Gables Inn! Everything from the accommodations and breakfasts to the concierge services and hospitality were the most remarkable I’ve experienced. As a world traveler, I have spent many nights in upscale hotels in beautiful locations; however, this Victorian mansion coupled with Pam and Larry’s care and concern for guests currently tops my list of travels.
First off, The Gables Inn is a quiet refuge offering its guests a serene and pampering environment. Upon arrival Pam greeted us with fresh baked cookies, which she does daily, and a big smile. She asked what we would like to do while staying with them, so we listed a few things and informed us she’d “take care of it” for us.
Following a fantastic dinner recommendation, we returned back to the Inn to get some rest. The beds and sheets were remarkable! If you can imagine slipping into a pat of butter and being lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature, this is what you will experience at The Gables Inn. (*Note: I had to purchase the sheets on the beds for use at home. Just ask Pam, she'll help you out with this, too!)
Each morning you awake to the most phenomenal breakfasts I've had! Pam uses the lavender and blackberries from the grounds to make amazing scones and Larry's fancy soufflés are sure to please. As a result, a purchase of their personal cookbook is a must. Larry is quite a chef, the portions are huge, and your belly will remain full for hours after indulging in these decadent breakfast creations.
Pam is a wonderful hostess and concierge who personally plans your days for you if you’d like. Incredible! This was the first vacation I have ever experienced that once I arrived I had to make no more decisions for the rest of my stay. Each morning Pam brings you a map which she highlights with you indicating places to stop, wineries to sample, restaurants in which to indulge, and sights you must see. If you want an individual basket of bread, cheese, and wine to accompany you, Pam will fix it up and will give you a list of the best picnic spots. Yes, there’s WiFi to check out restaurant reviews on Yelp, but no television and no stress whatsoever…just pure paradise!
Thank you Larry and Pam; we will be back very soon!!! :)
