We stayed one night at Greg Gables. Our host was very accommodating to our schedule that day for checking in. The room was lovely and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was astounding, with great selection of interestingly prepared food.

My husband and I stayed here after a long day of excellent fishing on Lake Erie. The accommodations were outstanding. The Grey Gables is very charming. We had a big room with an updated bathroom which had a shower stall, perfect for us. The owner, Jim, was very friendly and accommodating. Jim was gracious enough to get up extra early...

Stayed here for one night in the ground floor room and found it very comfortable and super clean. Jim is a great and attentive host who also makes a very good breakfast. My mother talked about those scrambled eggs for days, she was so delighted! Learned a lot about the area from Jim and really enjoyed ourselves.Would definitely stay here...

We had a great time at Grey Gables. Jim, the owner, came out to greet us immediately upon parking and gave us a tour of the house. Our room (Poster Room) was very spacious and clean with a very large bathroom and cozy claw-foot bath tub for a well deserved soak after a 4 hour motorcycle ride. We slept well...

Located in the centre of town we could and did walk everywhere. A...

We happened upon Grey Gables after an unfortunate booking at another establishment. We had been horrified with our current accommodations and were told by some lovely people we met to attempt to move to this B&B. Jim Hovener could not have been more gracious and helpful with our transfer. The room...(suite!) he offered us was beyond what we had expected...

We had no idea where to stay and chose this place after going to the info. in town, just by the write-up there and by the picture shown on-line by the info. young person.

Grey Gables is a friendly and informal bed and breakfast a few short blocks from the shores of Lake Erie. Proprietor Jim Hovener has lovingly restored what was Port Burwell's Baptist church manse and soon will open five new charming, bright and spacious rooms. Breakfast each day consisted of a generous spread including mum's homemade jams, fresh bread and scones....

“If you have any mobility problems, ask for a ground floor room, because the stairs in the main building are quite steep.”

“The Teddy Bear room (named for the person who helped renovate it) is a good choice if you have a walker or mobility issues. There are no wheelchair ramps (yet!), but the room doors are wide enough to accommodate them.”

“We liked the first floor and the fact that the two rooms shown us both had a queen and single bed, tho' we only used the queen. Convenient parking was a big bonus. Forgot a blow dryer so needed to air dry! The porch is lovely to sit on and we relaxed in the quietness of the town. The park and beach within walking distance are both great. We are seniors so it was all fine for us, but may be a bit too quiet for a younger age group depending on why they were there. Might just be perfect!”
