“Very quiet and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently to celebrate an anniversary. Wow, what a pleasant surprise!!! The breakfast's were very tasty (a special shout out to the scrambled eggs). The room was very comfortable and charming!!! The owners were extremely nice and interesting people who understand good customer service. I heartily recommend staying here.

Room Tip: There are two bedrooms, be sure and reserve the larger one.

Spent one night to celebrate a birthday. The optional dinner was excellent. Breakfast was good, room spacious private and comfortable. More like a small hotel than a room in someones house. Saw deer, beavers, otters, hawks, eagles and more on the nearby Nature preserve walk. We would come back

I had a lovely stay at Twin Gables this past summer. I'd come down to visit friends in the area to go sea kayaking. The breakfast is especially memorable: very generous portions and fresh items. The owners even accommodated my wheat allergy with delicious gluten-free corn bread! All-in-all a peaceful and restorative stay. I'll be back!

We went to spend a romantic weekend and do a bit of kayaking. We were amply rewarded on both counts. This lovely B&B is right on the water (great views) and right next to a very easily accessed launching ramp. After a morning of quiet paddling and a lunch on a sandy spit next to the Columbia, we arrived a bit damp and bedraggled and were greeted almost like old friends. Our room was spacious and homey, the shower perfect, and the bed more than comfortable. Be sure to talk to the owner about the dinner option We enjoyed a delicious home cooked dinner of pasta, fresh vegetables and home made sausage at a table next to the window looking out over the lawn and waterway. The next morning there was a thermos of hot coffee outside our door and downstairs a hearty breakfast awaited. You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer getaway than the Twin Gables.

Room Tip: although both rooms share the same view, splurge on the larger room... it is just a few dollars.

The best part of Twin gable is the very large dinning room/parlor,
when the owners are in it. It is obvious, Steve and Kathleen enjoy people. It seems that enjoyment is what makes them run the bed and breakfast. If I have one criticism it is the that the breakfast are too large.

Room Tip: I have only had one room, it was on the dockside upstairs. As I looked out on Grays river , watchin...

My wife and I just stayed at Twin Gables for the second time and love the character and location of this spot along the Columbia. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, our hosts were caring, and the breakfast was delicious. Across the highway is a county park with access to the Columbia -- a nice place to walk. We would come back again.

Really enjoyed our overnight stay at Twin Gables due to the hosts ability to create a very easy and relaxing atmosphere. Kathleen is knowledgable of and involved in the community which added to the experience. We equally enjoyed our interactions with Stevan. The guest room was simple and comfortable with little additional touches that were helpful as opposed to frivolous. The bed and it's bedding were very comfortable. Breakfast opened with a beautifully prepared fresh fruit combo followed by an unique and delicious omelette. The meal was hearty without being cloying. The dining area seating was comfortable and the table setting lovely in its simplicity, uncluttered. There is nothing I enjoy more then feeling like I can relax with a book or needle work after breakfast when I am on a little get away though that is not often the case. At Twin Gables you are assured that it will be.

Room Tip: We were in the larger of the two rooms in the main house and found it very accommodating due to its...
