I have stayed at the Gable House two ywars running. The accomodations are fantastic and the B&B is pure relaxation. Close to downtown and a great place to launce from on day trips. Heather and Mike are wonderful hosts, and they can plan your day or just sit and chat with you about Durango and the history of the B&B.

This meticulously restored and lovingly cared-for late-19th-century Victorian home is welcoming, spacious and very comfortable -- just the right place to spend an extended weekend, as my wife and I did. Breakfasts are sumptuous and unhurried and hostess Heather sets a delightful table. We plan to return. Make sure to ask Heather the back-stories to the huge Sousaphone lounging proudly... More

The Gable House was our home away from home for a week in July. Our first day we drove to Mesa Verde National Park (about an hour away). Heather suggested taking her cooler, so that we could have a nice picnic. The next morning we checked out of the Gable House, storing our luggage at the B&B, and walked to... More

The Gable House is the best place we have found to stay in Durango when you we want to walk to Main Street's action but sleep in a place so quiet we can hear Great Horned Owls calling in the night. It is an impeccably maintained Victorian without even a hint of the claustrophobic clutter than leaves me sleepless. This... More

We planned a trip to Durango and were going to stay at a motel, but we really didn't want the drab experience , so we called Heather at the Gable House and asked if she had room for our family. Heather accommodated us with a room that allowed our son his own twin bed and us a double, while my... More

We stayed at the Gable House for four nights in July while visiting family in Durango. The beautiful Victorian house is set in one of Durango's charming neighborhoods, close enough to Main Street to walk to shops and restaurants yet far enough away from all the activity to afford one a thoroughly relaxing and quiet stay. The location couldn't be... More

We've stayed in this B&B several times over the past few years finding a wonderful experience each time. Unlike many places to stay in Durango, Gable House is located a few blocks away from the main drag in a quiet old heavily treed residential neighborhood. The benefit of this is that the area is nicely quiet and peaceful which is... More

We had a chance to spend two nights here on our way back home. What a treat! This B&B is situated in a neighborhood within walking distance to downtown and "the train". The hostess is very knowledgable about what to see, do & where to eat. VERY clean, neat, a wonderful, delicious breakfast as well!

Elegant and eclectic without pretension. Lovely place in every single way. It's all in the details and Heather has put a personal touch into everything Gable House offers. From the artwork and decor to the silver service and linen at the breakfast table, it's first class and top notch. Her green chile spoon bread is so good! Farm fresh eggs... More

We stayed at the Gable House bed and breakfast in Durango for 1 night during the memorial day weekend. The house is a quaint Queen Anne victorian built in 1892 and is on the historic homes register. It is close by to the train station and is perfect for people like us who traveled on the famed Durango Silverton tourist... More
