Loved that there was a private parking lot. It was a bit of a tight squeeze but so much better than parking on the street. The house is absolutely gorgeous and well-kept. My room “the library” was nice and clean. The bed was so cozy. All the other guests were quiet, very minimal/ if any street noise. The owners are so sweet, I wish I could’ve stayed longer. This is where I’ll stay if/when I come back to Philadelphia!

A great place to stay
Our stay at the Gables was delightful. The Gonzalez family provided excellent hospitality, kindness, communication, and flexibility. Our room was clean, well-kept, and the furnishings helped us feel at home immediately. Breakfasts were also very nice! If you have time for it, I highly recommend sitting in the quiet garden with a good book. We will be back!

The house was built in 1889 and is very well kept up. I loved the old furnishings and the ambiance. Linda and Cesar are terrific. We were given a goody bag of coffee, fruit and Linda's pineapple upside down cake before we left which was a wonderful treat.

We had a wonderful stay. It was so nice to come back after a day in the city to a parking spot steps from the front door. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good. The neighborhood was nice with a park not far from the bed and breakfast. There was a small pop up street market in the park selling veggies, breads and some craft items. We will definitely be back for another stay.
