My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. It's where we always stay in Cape May because it's a lovely place, is comfortable, clean and has delicious fresh food for breakfast and afternoon snack. The best part is the welcoming hostess, Regina who is so helpful with recommending restaurants and other things to do. It's convenient to the beach,... More

There are lots of nice upgrades within the Twin Gables. Bed linens, towels, lotions and furnishings are all top quality. Regina has done a nice job of having first class appointments throughout the property. She was very accommodating during our overnight making a great recommendation for dinner (Oyster Bay Steak & Seafood) and packed a "breakfast to go" for us... More

The inn is situated in a nice spot in Cape May. We too parked the car and never drove again for the rest of the weekend. Regina is a great inn-keeper. Her house is very clean and she is a great host! Breakfasts were delicious. The house is very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are small though. But we still... More

Cape May is such great getaway destination- and so is Twin Gables! My wife & I do enjoy "going places & doing things" while we're in Cape May, but Twin Gables helped us to "slow down & smell the roses"- or in the case of our delightful hostess Regina- to smell the fresh baked cookies at tea time and the...

We stayed here for a weekend getaway at the beach. The location is perfect. It's situated on a quiet street but is still close to the beach and shopping.

My husband and I truly enjoyed Regina's hospitality and the charm of this Victorian B&B. It is conveniently located close to the beach and shopping and is nestled amongst a neighborhood of B&Bs. The enclosed veranda was a peaceful place to eat breakfast and relax. We hope to visit again next year.
