I can't say enough about the place - we stayed in the Ocean Mist room on the main floor with a beautiful view of the bay and countryside. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed. You could see immediately that the owners take pride in what they do and as a result, produce an exceptional product. The breakfast was...

My wife stayed at the Gables for our honeymoon and were the first couple in for the start of the season this year.

Great breakfast and lovely room. A bit late for review but we stayed July 9, 10 2015 and just loved the area. Jacqui was a fantastic host with good tips for visits and shopping. Her recommendations for restaurants were spot on.

I stayed here just after it was opened many years ago. What I enjoyed was the morning walk to an island. Graves Island Park is just down the road. There is a causeway road over to the island and it is the most peaceful way to start or end your day. The day use part of the park is inviting...

We stayed at the Gray Gables October 19 to 21, 2015. It was truly amazing. The view from our room over the water was breathtaking.

Thanks Jacqui & Dave for sharing your beautiful hilltop home with us and for being such gracious hosts. Our 4 day stay in the Lighthouse room in late Sept. and early Oct. 2015 was so enjoyable.

We were very lucky to get a room on Sept 25/15. I looked at a couple other B and B's in Chester and I'm glad we stayed here. We stayed in the Lighthouse room which is a little small but spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The view from room was great, looking over an expansive yard to the water...
