Perfect Weekend with Excellent Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I attended a graduation at RWU Law School and stayed at The Gables, we found it to be roomy and very comfortable (we loved the bed). Also George and Diane are fabulous hosts; they greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel very welcomed during out stay. George and Diane left us wine/cheese and other goodies in our room. I would not hesitate to return to or recommend The Gables to anyone looking to stay in the Tiverton area. My wife loved the area and the house.

Thank you George and Diane!

Beautiful place to stay that is comfortable and clean in a very good centralized quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

The place has a very comfortable bed, full kitchen, large bathroom with all the extras you would need if you forgot something, and my husband and I enjoyed the time we spent there. The owners called us prior to arrival and met us when we arrived. They had local cheeses, wine, grapes, crackers, and coffee waiting for us and even printed our boat tickets for us. They thought about everything and are very sweet people. Thank you for all your hospitality.

very comfortable and spacious and wonderfully quiet

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay but found it difficult to locate house; #on house difficult to see as was signage at driveway; much better directions would have been helpful.

Inside a second house at the rear of the main house, was a large apt; clean, bright and comfortable and the hosts had left wine, cheese and crackers, which was a pleasant surprise.

Hosts Diane and George were very pleasant and helpful

Perfect location and relaxing stay !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I attended the Newport Boat show and seminars. The Gables apartment was roomy, comfortable, beautifully well equipt, and an easy drive into Newport each day. It was nice to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city of Newport, while we were there and then relaxing to return to the quiet, peaceful, country feel of this location. George and Diane are fabulous hosts and spoiled us with welcome treats. Their recommendations for dining in the area were terrific.

We look forward to staying here again should we return to show next year.

Sweet rental

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were absolutely lovely. They greeted us upon arrival and made us feel very welome during out stay. We were left cheese and wine as well as a sweet cake and coffee, which was great after our journey from Western Mass. Our hosts maintained their good humor and disposition even when we locked ourselves out and had to summon them for assistance. The Gables was very neat and clean and had everything we needed. It is not far from Newport and only an hour's drive from Point Judith, which is a favorite spot of ours. I would not hesistate to recommend The Gables to anyone looking to stay in the Tiverton area.
