Norma and Eric are very welcoming and relaxed. Breakfast was divine with excellent coffee, a variety of juices,first course of fruit, yogurt, and granola followed by a breakfast casserole, or souffle,etc. Do yourself a favor and let Eric cook supper for you one night...what a treat. Rooms were very clean. Two cute cats live there too. .

This B&B exceeded our expectations. Norma and Eric were very gracious hosts. The inn is a 1910 house with character and charm; it was very clean and the resident cats, Olivia and Zoey, only added more charm. The breakfasts were delicious, hearty, and epicurean. Our bed was the most comfortable one we have experienced in a decade of B&B visits.... More

A wonderfully relaxed, enjoyable stay. The grounds are beautiful, with a stone walk winding among dozens of types of flowers and plants. Our cottage, the Ruffin Retreat, had recently been renovated and everything was perfect. The bath had an old-fashioned claw-foot tub and a space age shower/sauna. (I understand that small children & pets are allowed in other cottages, but... More

My wife and I stayed In one of their cottages in September for a few days to celebrate our anniversary. The hosts were very hospitable and we loved the home cooked breakfasts. They made some home made apple butter from apple trees right on the property. Talk about fresh! Then there was Home made granola. Oh so good!They do make... More

Perfect mountain retreat! My husband and I spent the weekend in Avery’s Cottage at the Gable Haus Inn for a fall getaway. The entire property is charming and the hosts, Norma and Eric, could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed their company, and our entire stay. It was exactly what we were looking for! We like... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Gable Hays. It was the perfect accommodation for our weekend getaway to the mountains. It's a short drive from great scenery, hiking, and good eats. In fact, you don't have to drive anywhere for a great meal. The hosts made fantastic breakfasts and had yummy homemade cake for... More

My wife and I stayed here during a friend's wedding in Linville. It was also our anniversary, so we decided to stay in one of the cottages called "Helen's Haven." This cottage was incredible. It had its own kitchen and bathroom with a large tub/shower. My wife and I felt like we were on a honeymoon. Also, the place is... More

Recently I was in Linville on business and decided to make the trip more enjoyable by staying at a bed and breakfast inn. I was so glad that I did, as Gable Haus turned out to be a delightful respite -- almost like a vacation. My room was cozy and comfortable with a luxurious bed. Hosts Norma and Eric are... More

The bed in the "owner's room" is extremely comfy...a great night's sleep! However, I don't recommend choosing this room, as there is no place to hang any clothes, except knobs on the back of a door. Also, no drawers in the chests, which seemed to be full. We lived out of the suitcase the whole time we were there -... More

Spent last weekend in the Gable Haus to escape from a stressful summer and was well rewarded with a fabulous place to relax, incredible hospitality, and amazing breakfasts. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and provide a soothing respite from the hectic life. Eric and Norma are warm and interesting people, and made us feel welcome in their home. We immediately...
