Our first Airbnb stay and it couldn't have been better. The best part was the communication from Laureen explaining anything and everything. The entire process couldn't have been smoother and the place was great. No issues whatsoever.

The space is located in a large, beautiful home in a quiet cul de sac. Laureen left tea and coffee, with a fridge with milk and room for your own groceries - and she also left me delicious baked goods both nights! Comfortable queen sized bed, closet space, couches - definitely had everything I needed for a weekend trip for a friend's wedding. I highly recommend it!!

This was my fourth stay with Laureen and Terry. The place is always spotless, easily accessible and the blueberry crumb cake and muffins are incredible. Look forward to a return trip next year.

Laureen and Terry were fantastic hosts. The space was spacious, the size of a studio appartment and all the amenities you could possibly need. Laureen bake us some deliceous lemon coolies and blueberry coffee cake which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely stay there again!

Laureen is not only the most excellent of Airbnb hosts, she is a wonderfully warm, kind person who will make you feel immediately like a long time friend. I have stayed with her multiple times and on this most recent trip for my daughter’s graduation. She always goes above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Her hospitality and kindness made this trip as low stress as possible! Thanks, Laureen!

Laureen and Terry were wonderful hosts. We so enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we were to return to the area. The breakfast bread and coffee were very appreciated and made us feel right at home.

Laureen was a delight to meet -we didn't get to meet Terry. The room was spacious, clean and homey. The muffins and banana bread were a very nice touch.

Hi, we hope you join us at Five Gables. We are Terry and Laureen, empty nesters with a big beautiful country home to share. We are happiest when the house is full with folks enjoying life. Terry is a carpenter, he built the house, he loves to create things and play the harmonica. Laureen loves to cook, walk and do yoga. We started this venture at the urging of our friends who say it seems like a natural fit. We hope you agree, please come join us!
