Did you know we are dog friendly at Five Gables Inn & Spa. We have 4 rooms and a suite that are dedicated to our guests who love to travel with their four legged friends. We have beds and dog bowls that we lend our furry guests. And, we give each and every one of our four legged guests a treat and a toy from Flying Freds. We really love to pamper all of our guests here! And of course, we suggest a visit to Flying Freds – our upscale pet boutique – even if you don’t bring a furry friend with you.

Spectacular Fireworks

Fireworks were spectacular this year. They lit up the sky over St. Michaels with brilliant colors and loud explosions. Guests at Five Gables enjoyed the festivities on the lawn at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. This is always a prime spot on the Miles River for viewing fireworks. And, this year, our guests also enjoyed the big band sounds of the Rhythm Doctors, a favorite group at the CBMM. Put this event on your calendar for next year – fabulous fireworks, great music and a relaxing stay at Five Gables Inn & Spa – it couldn’t be any better!
