Number of rooms: 5

The Gables is a romantic seaside treasure, located in the heart of Beach Haven on Long Beach Island.

Originally built in 1892 as a cottage to house lifeguards, the Gables has assumed various personas throughout the years, from a postal drop to an all-girls’ boarding house. With the most recent renovation in 2005, it now boasts five beautifully decorated guestrooms that meticulously meld Victorian period furnishings with modern amenities, resulting in a luxurious beachside weekend escape.

You’ll find antiques, wide-plank floors, fireplaces, marble bathrooms, and needlepoint rugs blending harmoniously with flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi, fine linens, queen-sized beds, French toiletries, and whirlpool spa tubs. Spend the day at the beach (passes needed starting in June, towels provided) or stroll next door to a live performance at the Surflight Theatre, beginning Memorial Day weekend. Dine by piano and candlelight in the dining room, relax on the open-air porch, or enjoy the newly opened garden terrace.

While you won’t want to miss the Gables’ fantastic brunch (or their breakfast-in-a-basket for the beach), LBI’s legendary eatery Chicken or the Egg is just a block away. Rooms range from $185 to $275 during off season (April to mid-June and mid-September to December 31) and are $185 to $350 with a two-night minimum from mid-June to mid-September.
