Welcome to The Gables - Love "Sugar"
The Gables has been a bed and breakfast for nearly 25 years and has won numerous awards for hospitality and restoration. The are ten guest rooms, most with their own bathrooms (two rooms do have to share a hall bath with each other) There is free parking on the premises and/or free street parking. This property has a glorious wrap-around porch and a large side yard. It is truly an oasis in the middle of the city very conveniently located on the trolley line that can take you to the university in under 10 minutes and center city in 15. A full breakfast is served each morning. There is also free WiFi, cable tv, and a treasure trove of antiques.
The owners and innkeepers Rick, Cesar, John, Jose, Jeannette, and our dog Sugar are dedicated to making your stay in their home as comfortable and gracious as you might expect when you step back into the era of Victorian Splendor. Lastly, we are forever indebted to the generosity of Don, Warren, and Oscar who created the magic that now called "The Gables."
We are fortunate in this area of the city to have quite a few city parks and parklets. The University City District have be very conscious in trying to develop green space even on small triangles where roads come together on an angle. It has helped to pull the neighbors outside. We also have a Farmers Market twice a week (Thursdays and Saturdays) in the park just one block away from The Gables. Summertime the parks become especially active with Shakespeare in the Park, Movies shown on a big screen, family picnics, soccer practice on a Saturday morning, children's activities, flea markets, festivals. Clark Park is one of the city's most permitted use parks and its only a block from The Gables. And how can we forget the sl At Cedar Park about 4 blocks away there is Friday night Jazz, and other concerts, flea markets and checker tournaments. University City is comprised of very diverse people: many races, many economic levels, many nationalities, many ages, many sexual orientations, many education levels. All this makes it an exciting place to live and to visit. The restaurant diversity is like a smorgasbord of ethnic delights from around the world.
