The Barrett Browing
Do you want to sweep your loved one off his or her feet? Then book the Barrett Browning Room at The Gables Inn in Beach Haven, NJ for a romantic weekend for two. Named for the most romantic couple of the Victorian era, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, this charming room pays homage to the memory of their courtship — kept hidden from her tyrannical father — and their secret marriage and flight to Florence, where they spent 15 idyllic years. Elizabeth’s best-known poem, the sonnet that starts “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways” has resonated with lovers to this day and sets the perfect mood for your romantic New Jersey getaway. This period room, from the stately height of the ceiling to the original wide plank floors, bids you a warm welcome. A working fireplace is framed by a carved marble mantel, and carefully selected antiques, needlepoint rug, and a comfortable queen-sized bed create a sense of ease. Additional comforts include a marble bathroom with whirlpool tub, The Gables’ terry-lined brocade bathrobes, and French toiletries from Provence. Of course, modern amenities such as a flat screen TV with integrated DVD/CD player, WIFI, secure high speed cable/modem connection and clock radio have not been forgotten. A complimentary gourmet breakfast completes the whole delightful experience.
