Whilst the accommodation was excellent, the Inn is actually 3 separate buildings, with the reception, pool and spa being in one building, along with rooms, and two other buildings close by housing the other rooms, and the dining room for breakfast. The front desk staff were not overly helpful and there didn't seem to be an inn keeper as such....

My wife and I were looking for a last second get-a-way for Labor Day, didn't want to fight crowds and traffic for the DE beaches so found this gem of a property. St. Michael's itself was busy but still quiet, great food and activity, we packed our own bikes but the inn has some for use as well. We scheduled...

We really enjoyed our stay over labor day weekend. All of the staff we met were nice. Our room (2 in main building, ground floor) was a little "sticky" but nothing to complain about. The king bed however, could use some work. Our king was actually 2 twins pushed together with a mattress pad. Once again, not a big deal...

Midweek stay and "summer special." Room was charming and clean and a nice size in comparison to other B&Bs were I have stayed. Loved the terry bathrobes and slippers. The bathroom was a nice size, although I did use it, there was a jetted tub, as well. The breakfast was a bit unusual for a B&B, but I liked it....served...

Midweek stay. Room was clean but small. Had to ask to have room serviced (cleaned) on day two. Office staff was helpful and friendly. Pool need a bit of maintenance! Room faced busy street making it difficult to relax. You can hear other occupants clearly from other rooms and from the lobby of the Brick House. Would choose different lodging...

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the Five Gables, very close to shopping and the marina. We enjoyed the spa treatment and got some needed rest. The continental breakfast was great.

The property is nicely designed and maintained. Our room was well-furnished but small for the price (about $300/night). Although we didn't use it there is an indoor pool and spa, a significant attraction for a winter visit to the Eastern Shore. The Inn is convenient to shops and restaurants in St. Michaels and to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, the...

Arrived June 5th for an anniversary get away. Lovely facility, very clean and comfortable. Our room was in the Main House (which also contains the pool & spa). It was very nice being within walking distance of everything in St. Michaels. Nice time of year to go as later in the summer the town is overrun with tourists!! Very quiet,...

My wife and I visited from Fairfax, VA for a nearby getaway. The suite, 56, was in a building across the street yet still nice, Unfortunately the view overlooked the back parking lot.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Five Gables Inn & Spa. We believe you are mistaken at the "Guest" charge. The rate for Suite 56 and all suites for a Saturday night is $395, which is what you paid for you and your wife. We only charge an extra fee if there are more than...
