Nine Gables - Circa 1880

The house, which is now Nine Gables, was built on property that once belonged to St. Gregory's Church.   A local innkeeper built the original house

After several owners and additions the house grew to the size it is today.  From the front on Maitland Street, it looks much like the original house (minus the original front porch).  The additions (garage, family room and loft and workshop) were added to the back and south side of the house so that it looks like a much bigger house from the side.  

In 2008,  we purchased the house and renovated the existing space to make it into a bed and breakfast.

In 2010,  we named our bed and breakfast, Nine Gables, and opened for business.  We ended the full service bed and breakfast in 2017 and have opened up the upper back part of the house as a self-catered vacation rental called The Loft at Nine Gables.
