I very much enjoyed a night at Gable House during a vacation road trip through Colorado. Located on a quiet side street but just a few minutes' walk from down town museums and restaurants. Heather and Mike are very gracious hosts, from sharing a bottle of wine in the evening to tips on where and what to see around town.... More

I had a lovely time staying at the Gable House on my vacation. We stayed for four days and had the best time. The house is very charming and has a beautiful atmosphere. We had the best meals during our stay. The house is very close to the center of town and was easy to walk to destinations. I highly... More

we have stayed in many B&B's in our travels and the majority of them have extra's such as wine and cheese about 5pm, cookies and other goodies any time you want them and also hot or cool drinks whenever. The Gable does not offer these extras, but it is a very nice place to stay. I do believe it is... More

My husband and I have never been to Durango so we decided to try a bed and breakfast to get the feeling of stepping back in time. The Gable House was the perfect choice. The Victorian home is beautifully, and comfortably, decorated. We parked our car when we arrived and were able to walk everywhere the entire time we stayed... More

Charmingly renovated home with eclectic decorating touches. We stated on third floor of a well appointed and comfortable king suite. Perfect base to visit Durango as town is 4 minutes away and train about 10 - all by walking. Manicured lawns and nice sitting places to relax and reflect. Friendly hosts-perfect Durango base camp!

We agree with the other guests' assessment of the Gable House. Heather's hospitality is wonderful. Her breakfasts are delicious. The location is ideal, if you like lovely neighborhoods with beautifully kept/restored houses with lovingly tended yards and gardens. It's an easy walk to Main Avenue where there is plenty of dining and shopping, plus just a couple of blocks in... More

We recently spent 4 nights at Gable House. The location is convenient for visiting the historic part of Durango. We always opted to walk instead of drive. The house was clean and eclectically decorated. The bed was very comfortable. We were in the room with the attached porch which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only complaint I have is I wish... More

We were in Durango for one night on our way to Ouray, CO. This is in a prime location with a short walk to downtown with many places to eat and enjoy. The home was beautiful and Heather made us feel welcome from the minute she greeted us. The home was so comfortable, quiet and very clean. The breakfast in... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Gable House. The inn keepers were very gracious and nice to know. Comfortable bed. We had a third floor room, and the stairs were a bit of a challenge, but the room and adjoining tv room/ office were delightful.
