This beautiful 10 bedroom home has been restored over the last 8 years and has won awards for historic preservation and also for hospitality. Philadelphia Magazine has awarded it "Best of Philly: Best urban get-away" The Gables has also been featured in the December 2002 issue of Victorian Homes Magazine. It is truly one of the first and one of the finest bed and breakfasts in Philadelphia.

Besides the antiques, each room is complete with private phones, cable television, fine linens and plush towels. A full breakfast is served each morning in the formal dining room. Many guests enjoy the magnificent wrap-around porch that surrounds nearly half the house. In addition to innkeeping, the owners also enjoy gardening and share their pleasures with the guests.

The front entrance and foyer has chestnut woodwork and wainscoat throughout while the parlors all are trimmed in cherry. Each room has special intricate in-lay floors and oriental style carpets.

Policies & Restrictions


The Gables has a resident small dogs, a miniature poodle, "Tobe". He wins the hearts of the guests on their arrival. For those concerned with allergies, poodles do not shed so they are not a problem.
