My home away from home
Love The Gables: hosts, food, rooms are all very special. Its a treat to stay and be cared for so well. The house and rooms are truly Victorian eye candy, the breakfasts and baked goods I seriously dream about. Makes my frequent Philly visits fun and comforting.

This place is fun, in a great location, and the service is wonderful. If you are looking for something that has charm and character, as well as a delicious breakfast, then you've found it. The proprietors are friendly and want to help you have a great stay and fun in Philly. It's also so nice to have drinks and snacks available. Thank you!

A treasure of a B&B, right in West Philly
This is a gorgeous, comfortable inn right in West Philadelphia, a short walk to public transportation and interesting restaurants and shops. It is decorated beautifully in full Victorian flavor. Breakfasts were around a large center table in a warm and welcoming dining room. Owners Ricky and Caesar could not have been more hospitable, truly looking after the needs of guests and anxious to make sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. The grounds of this inner-city B&B are like a park, a gorgeous oasis. We spent a lot of time sitting on the front porch reading. A well stocked pantry is open for guests to have a snack or a drink--soda and wine complementary. Rooms were clean and handsomely furnished. Beds super comfortable. I didn't want to leave!
