“Cozy and well priced”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

This B&B is a good choice for a Cape May vacation. It's centrally located, well kept, and the rooms are comfortable. One drawback is the bathrooms, which are very tiny. There are no TVs in the rooms, but there is one in the hotel's lounge area. The innkeeper, Regina, makes an absolutely delicious (and filling) breakfast every day, as well as providing a yummy tea in the afternoon.

We came to Cape May over the December 18th weekend for the Christmas Candlelight House Tour and wanted a reasonably priced B&B within walking distance of the tour. We picked Twin Gables because of the positive reviews, room availability, good price and that there was no two night minimum requirement. We arrived to find an intimate, warm and friendly B&B with Regina as our hostess. Everything was perfect from the victorian decor of the bedrooms and living room to the afternoon tea and morning breakfast to the great location on Columbia Avenue. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again to visit Regina. Thanks for making our weekend so pleasant and memorable.

Regina, the innkeeper of Twin Gables, is one of the nicest, most accommodating B&B hosts we have ever had the pleasure of staying with. Staying with her was like visiting a favorite aunt (or other female relative) who loves to dote on you. One proof of this is the number of people who return to stay with her again and again; we noted that a number of the other guests during our stay fit into that category. We will definitely stay with Regina again when we next visit Cape May. Also, Regina goes all out with her breakfasts, which are inventive, delicious and take guests' dietary needs into account. Twin Gables was clean, quiet and well-located, and staying there was all in all a very pleasant experience.

The Twin Gables was great - clean, value priced, wonderful innkeeper in Regina, who welcomed us and our boys. Close to the beach, clean, great food. As a bonus, there are two wonderful well behaved dogs on the property - Rascal and Brandy! highly recommend.

Regina, Brandy and Rascal were wonderful hosts. Many of the guests staying the same weekend were repeat guests - which is always a wonderful sign. Breakfast and afternoon goodies were yummy! In fact, I gained 3 pounds over the weekend - but have no regrets.
The room was what I expected (bed was very comfy in the Dwyer Room). Walls are a bit thin, so if you are a light sleeper you may be up earlier than expected by movement throughout the house. But, nothing beats waking up to the smell of bacon and anything baked!
The Inn is a great value and I will visit again. Thanks Regina - I felt like I was visiting with family.

Had a pleasant stay and an incredible breakfast. Regina was a gracious and pleasant host, and so was Brandy. We would recommend this B & B to anyone.

Our stay at the Twin Gables was so relaxing. It is a fantastic bed and breakfast, the Inn keeper Regina makes a fabulous breakfast. It is about 3 blocks from the beach and parking is easy to find on the street. The B&B is very relaxing, you will love just sitting out on the porch enjoying the slow relaxed lifestyle of Cape May after a great day at the beach. The rooms are comfortable with ceiling fans and air conditioning to keep you comfortable and private bathrooms in each room. There are beach towels and chairs available as well as a shower in the back for you to clean the sand off after a nice relaxing day at the beach. There is even a snack time in the afternoon with snacks and wine to enjoy. I definitely recommend the Twin Gables for your trip to Cape May.
