The Gables

Mountain Lake Park, Maryland: Cottages Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The Gables cottage was originally built in 1882 by Solomon Allen of Grafton, West Virginia. It was purchased in August 1910 by Elijah Stone's other son Edward and his descendants still occupy the house.

The Gables is a wonderful example of Country Gothic architecture which was meant to imitate the lofty cathedrals of medieval Europe. This was achieved primarily through the use of steeply pitched roof angles, high pointed dormers, and vertical board and batten siding. The overall effect was to draw your eyes upward.
