Our 3-day stay was terrific. Regina, the hostess and proprietor is exceptional. She was very friendly and gracious. Lovely accommodations and conveniently located. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and having our breakfast.

We took a whirlwind, 2 day breakaway to our favorite place on the planet, Cape May NJ. We stayed at the Twin Gables Bed and Breakfast on Columbia. Regina was a most wonderful hostess. The breakfasts were absolutely outstanding. The fresh fruit salad was so refreshing. Breakfast was served outside on the screened front porch under the ceiling fans and was very comfortable. The Twin Gables is not one of those super expensive fancy Boutique B and B's. It's much more like home. Regina has been here since 1995 and can help with dinner recommendations and other attractions. She made sure there was a secure place for bikes under the awning. Regina made sure that all guests followed social distancing practices. Masks were required indoors unless we were eating and or drinking. This is our third stay at the Twin Gables and it won't be our last.

Had a really great week at Twin Gables! Regina is a great hostess and takes pride in her inn. Her homemade breakfast was delicious and she went out of her way to fulfill any requests. The inn felt very safe and clean during this crazy time. It is 3 blocks from the beach and a short walk to the shops and some of the restaurants. A very charming place to stay!

We came to Cape May the week New Jersey went into phase 2 of reopening after COVID. Regina was incredibly sweet and meticulous about cleanliness protocols. We felt very safe and clean during our stay. Regina always had a mask on, regularly sanitized the common areas, and sent us an email of their health and safety protocols after we booked our reservation. Breakfast every morning was delicious (pic of our raspberry French toast the first morning included!) and snacks were always available each afternoon. Regina also let us play with Ginger, who is the most well behaved and gorgeous Sheltie (only after we sanitized our hands/put gloves on, of course).

We just came back from a weekend at Twin Gables in Cape May. Regina our Inn Keeper and her well behaved dog Ginger were the perfect hosts! There are 18 steps leading up to 4 guest rooms. We stayed in the Dwyer Room which is a bit small with the sink located in the room instead of the bathroom. For the amount of time we used it, it was ok. There are full size toiletries and a hair dryer. Regina cooks a hot breakfast in addition to fruit, juice, and freshly ground coffee daily. Tea and soda is readily available throughout the day. There are plenty of snacks daily and wine available in the evening. Sitting in the living room surrounded by antique furniture is comfortable, and Regina makes sure you feel at home. The porch in front is insulated for the cold weather but set up nicely. Regina is amazing at making you feel at home from the minute you walk in until the minute you walk out. We will definitely be staying again!
