The Gables: Victorian Mansion

We have not stayed here.

From their website (which doesn't always come up)

"There are three bedrooms, one of which is now used as office space by the owners. The other two along with the sun porches, the large Cyprus floored bath, and an additional bath on the 3rd floor are dedicated to the B&B. n the mansion:

"The Sarah Mae Room overlooks Cockrell's Creek on the east and is furnished with an ornately carved antique (full size) bed and rose marble top dresser originating in Wales. Enjoy the warm glow of sunrise on the rose colored walls. Watch the osprey couple nesting and raising their young our osprey post, or the great blue heron fishing along the shore. This room is across the hall from the large cypress floored bath with its brass footed antique tub, separate shower, fountain and dressing area, and adjacent to the antique wicker filled sun room with full view of Cockrell's Creek. Relax or read to your hearts content, or gain inspiration for creative writing or art!
$150.00/night + tax

"The Amber Leeann Room
$155.00/night + tax
The Amber Leeann Room overlooks Main Street and the historic bank, built by Capt. Fisher with the same bricks as the Gables. This room also has a view of the west leg of Cockrell's Creek. Enjoy romantic sunsets from here. This room has a marvelous high king size canopy bed and ornate dresser, antique teak rocker and Victorian arm chair. The bath for this room is on the third floor in the East Gable off the ball room (the Capt’s billiard room) this bath is furnished with an antique brass footed tub and pedestal sink."

No smoking, no pets and children are not appropriate.

The most interesting item about the Gables Inn is that it incorporates an old schooner's mast in its
architecture

Things to do - Birding - Gables has a resident crane and blue heron, and there is an osprey nest near the Gables private dock.

Boat Rides -- The website says: "Take a boat ride on Cockrell's Creek from the marina next door to The Gables. Guests are invited to use the Gables private dock for their boating pleasure. Five slips are available. The MLT is 5 1/2 feet. Charter boat captains will pick up guests at the Gables with prior arrangements." Canoeing is also available.

If our boat is there, you could come aboard and visit us.

It is adviseable to have a car while here in order to get to restaurants outside of town or to antique malls, golf courses, art galleries, hiking and biking trails, and picnic sites.

I have neither stayed at this B&B nor eaten there.

The Gables serves a gourmet breakfast each morning to its guests. Some of the possible breakfast menus can include:

Baked Alaska grapefruit

bacon and/or sausage

For lunch and dinner, there are two restaurants are within walking distance of the Gables. Note that they are both closed on Monday. Other eating places require a short drive or boat ride.
