My husband and I and our 20 month old daughter visited family in Lake Wales in June 2007. Green Gables was located conveniently close to where we were spending most of our time, right on Route 27. Given the close proximity to the major highway, our room was surprisingly quiet (at least from street traffic), though the walls are a little thin and we could hear our neighbors and what sounded like people hanging out outside. The room was clean and had a small table with two chairs, which came in handy for dinner. We got takeout from the restaurant right next door, which was great food for a really great price. We rented a crib from the inn, which turned out to be a pack n' play. I liked that much better than the rickety cribs you usually get from a hotel, though the cardboard-like "mattress" seems pretty uncomfortable. Also, I fortunately had packed one of our own crib sheets, otherwise my daughter would have been sleeping on the mattress itself - so bring your own crib bedding! The bathroom was clean, though the shower head was hung so low even I had to duck to wash my hair. They gave us a Florida Visitors package upon check-in, which had some sample size toiletries, snacks and tourist attraction information. They gave us plenty of towels and soaps/shampoos. Very courteous staff. We'll definitely go back there when we visit family again. One thing to note is that the property is divided into two buildings. One building faces the pool (which we didn't use, so can't vouch for that but seemed fine) and the other one is adjacent to that, but away from the pool. We were in the one that was not on the pool. I would think the one on the pool might be louder, but then again, I'm not sure when the pool closes so it might be a non-issue for the evening. Just something to know when making a reservation. We weren't offered a choice and as this was our first time staying there, didn't know to ask.
