Seven Gables is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The location with view is amazing! Our 2 bed/2bath cottage was perfect for 2 couples. One bedroom up and one down. Very private. Had a lovely living with kitchen and dining area. Breakfast was delicious and the views from the dining room cannot be beat....

I have stayed here four or five times over the past 15 years. As others have commented, I do not bother to look elsewhere. Yes it is expensive - especially the larger rooms, but if you want a real treat, this is the place to stay. As one sits in a chair or lies in bed, the views out over...

Absolutely one of the best holiday accommodations we have ever stayed in. It's immaculate, public rooms, bedrooms, links, passageways and gardens are so, so, clean. The staff are all lovely, nothing is too much trouble and they just want to help. All the main rooms overlook the bay and don't be surprised if you see a Sea Otter, Dolphin or...

The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. The hotel was beautiful, immaculate, conveniently located, picturesque. It was possibly the most restful place I have ever stayed. The bed was definitely the most comfortable bed I have slept in! I hope I get to stay there again!

Everything about this place was great. The location, the room, the staff, the food, the view. Even the sheets on the amazingly comfortable bed. We stayed in the 'Gable Room' which is at the highest point on the third floor. It's a quaint room, very clean and of course has an incredible view of Lovers Point. We will be back.
