The Gables compares quite favorably to the more historically known Cape May B&Bs. For folks seeking a relaxing shore escape absent the mayhem of the more northerly beach venues, I recommend the Gables in Beach Haven. The property is clean and exceptionally well maintained with lovely appointments. The garden is beautiful. Sondra is truly a "people person" who finds time to engage you and make your stay memorable. I also note the exceptional level of customer service exhibited by the staff - not to be confused with the immaturity that you typically experience at the shore inclusive of higher priced properties. The food is very good, and the menu has flair and creativity - it will not disappoint. Prices are what one would expect - no surprises. The wine list is limited but covers all the essentials - I found my selection to be very enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent as well.
