I'm always a little uncomfortable with staying at B&B as I feel like I'm intruding on someone's home or not have the privacy and comfort of a hotel. This B&B totally exceeded my expectation and has raised the bar for any other B&B's I visit in the future. The B&BB is spotless, Jackie & Dave are pros, they know how... More

Gray Gables is in a beautiful location. The B&B is well maintained both inside and out. A lovely wrap around veranda offers wonderful views of the water. Jacqui and Dave are friendly and helpful hosts with lots of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Jacqui's breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. I would definitely recommend this as... More

I can't say enough about the place - we stayed in the Ocean Mist room on the main floor with a beautiful view of the bay and countryside. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed. You could see immediately that the owners take pride in what they do and as a result, produce an exceptional product. The breakfast was... More

My wife stayed at the Gables for our honeymoon and were the first couple in for the start of the season this year. Gray Gables is an absolutely wonderful house tucked away outside of Chester and the view is so wonderful to wake up to in the morning. The hosts are extremely kind and Jacqui is a great cook, so...

Great breakfast and lovely room. A bit late for review but we stayed July 9, 10 2015 and just loved the area. Jacqui was a fantastic host with good tips for visits and shopping. Her recommendations for restaurants were spot on.

I stayed here just after it was opened many years ago. What I enjoyed was the morning walk to an island. Graves Island Park is just down the road. There is a causeway road over to the island and it is the most peaceful way to start or end your day. The day use part of the park is inviting... More

We stayed at the Gray Gables October 19 to 21, 2015. It was truly amazing. The view from our room over the water was breathtaking. Jacqui and Dave were so helpful in pointing us to sites not to miss in the area. They made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were amazing. If we ever get back to Nova... More
