While The Gables Inn was beautiful and clean I was disappointed with the food. Upon arriving we were offered (store bought) cookies. The breakfast muffin was also store bought, along with the one slice of white bread toast and one strawberry. There was a (small) oven baked omelette with two small sausages. I may be making too much of it, but I expected home made, delicious food at a BnB. less

We are so sorry that you did not fully enjoy your one night stay with us. Most of our guests give fantastic feedback on the complimentary breakfast that we serve. Our breakfasts are different each morning, so guests staying more than one night get to experience a wide array of entrées, with anything from a breakfast pizza, to stuffed blueberry French toast, a ham and cheese 3 egg omelette to a four-cheese quiche, etc. The side dish also changes from day to day, some mornings we have muffins, sometimes fresh fruit. Other days we may have a yogurt parfait or perhaps a baked grapefruit. We always have a meat dish that is either bacon or sausage, sometimes sausage links, sometimes patties. As far as the one strawberry you mentioned, it is called a strawberry tart; on this particular morning it consisted of a flakey mini crust, strawberry jam, whipped cream topped with a fresh strawberry. You also complained about the one piece of toast. Again, the bread varies from day to day. Sometimes we have toast, other days biscuits or croissants. Unlike a restaurant, most B&B’s will gladly provide you with more food upon request without an additional fee, however, most of our guests comments are that they enjoyed such a big breakfast that they did not eat again until their evening meal.
In the 23 years of owning a B&B we have learned that you can offer clean and nice accommodations along with outstanding service, but you absolutely cannot please everyone. We do hope you will give us another try next time you are in the area as we enjoyed meeting you and talking with you, especially about your hometown where the movie Steel Magnolias was filmed.
