Victoria & Albert
The Victoria & Albert
You'll feel like royalty when you stay in the Victoria & Albert Room at The Gables Inn in Beach Haven, NJ. Named for a 19th century royal couple whose engineered marriage turned into an enduring love match, this welcoming room has many charming features that date back to the Victorian era — one that lasted from 1819, when the 18-year-old princess ascended the British throne — until 1901, when the revered monarch passed away. Fate decreed that she would mourn Prince Albert, who died at an early age from typhoid (the royal drains at Windsor left much to be desired in those days) for 40 years, but not before they had produced nine sons and daughters. This period room, our most commodious, with its high ceiling and the original wide plank floors, is tastefully decorated with carefully selected antiques and wall coverings of ivory and silver damask. The working fireplace with carved marble mantel, and a comfortable queen-sized bed complete with canopy and down duvet create a sense of warmth and ease. A petite French marquetry desk, velvet chaise lounge and a mirrored armoire complete the decor. Perfect for a honeymoon or if you are planning to celebrate a special occasion in at the shore, like a birthday or wedding anniversary, consider hosting your event at The Gables. Then surprise the guest(s) of honor with a night or weekend in the Victoria and Albert Room. Additional comforts include a marble bathroom with whirlpool tub, The Gables' terry-lined brocade bathrobes, and Italian toiletries from Antica Farmicia . Of course, modern amenities such as a flat screen TV with integrated DVD/CD player, WIFI, secure high speed cable/modem connection and have not been forgotten. A complimentary gourmet breakfast completes the whole delightful experience

The Gables has seen many changes since the structure was built in Beach Haven, New Jersey by the Cahill family in 1892. Then known as Kathlyn Cottage, the spacious front porch led to the foyer, parlor, and a large dining room. Upstairs, a warren of 14 small bedrooms housed Beach Haven’s lifeguards, and a sleeping porch provided respite on hot summer nights. Centrally located, Kathlyn Cottage became an informal community gathering spot, serving over the years as a postal drop, an all girls’ boarding house, and the venue for the first annual Beach Haven Fire Department Turkey Dinner.
An overnight stay in one of our five romantic guestrooms provides a rare break from everyday stresses andstrains. Complete with period furnishings and fine linens, each has a working fireplace or a free-standing iron stove — and also includes modern amenities like a luxurious marble bathroom, flat screen TV and WIFI.
