Nestled in the heart of quaint St Michaels this B&b was a breath of fall air. From the minute we checked in the staff was so friendly and helpful showing us around. Our room was spotless with a fireplace and small balcony. Breakfast was across the street with fresh muffins and great hard boiled eggs. They had a very adequate... More

We stayed over the weekend and were very impressed with the customer service and quality of the room..we especially liked the atmosphere of having a fireplace to ourselves. The breakfast was delicious and spa services were top of the line.

We just returned from spending 4 days in St. Michaels, MD at the Five Gables Inn & Spa. We stayed in Room 2 which was quaint but spacious. Our king sized bed was very comfortable. In the bathroom was a Jacuzzi tub which was absolutely relaxing and a nice touch. There was a small patio with two wooden chairs and... More

After dropping our youngest off at college we spent a couple of nights here. It was relaxing and convenient. We literally parked and then walked to everything we wanted to do.The owners were away for the weekend so I'm not sure we got the usual chatty and informative experience that you would expect from a B&B. We chose a king... More

Just got back from a one night stay at Five Gables! The room was adorable (small and cozy but very cute), and we had a nice balcony overlooking Talbot Street.

My husband and I stayed on a Thursday night..it was very quiet and a nice spot for a getaway! We stayed in Queen #10 - I love the exposed brick walls and balcony overlooking the street. We loved that we could walk everywhere. We will definitely return!

“This inn consists of 3 buildings. The main building houses the pool, spa, steam room and sauna. The breakfast room and conference center are across the street in other buildings with rental rooms. Be sure to understand this when booking.”
