“THE place to stay in Durango!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We chose this lovely B&B based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed! This lovely B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood a few blocks off the main street in Durango. We walked at a good clip to the train station and it took us 10 minutes. Restaurants are about the same time away and the streets are safe and easy to navigate. There is off-street parking but during our stay we just parked on the quiet street in front of the Gable House and there were no problems. The B&B has lovely gardens and even nicer rooms. I believe our room was called the large suite and it was perfect for us. We had a private bath and a private balcony overlooking the side street. The room and bathroom were spotless. Our host Heather was more than welcoming and could expertly answer any questions we had of the area. One day we were driving to Mesa Verde National Park and Heather loaned us a cooler that had a compartment of ice in the lid to keep our lunches cold. This was strictly her idea. She obviously cares about her guests and wants to make their stay in Durango as pleasant as possible. We have relatives that always want Harley Davidson t-shirts from our travels. Heather directed us right to the dealership! This was a first for us. Usually owners of B&B's aren't this attuned to the area.
The breakfasts at the Gable House were fantastic! We stayed there 4 nights and looked forward to the breakfasts as much as the comfortable room. Heather makes her breakfasts with a southwest flavor and we were happy that she wasn't afraid to add a little heat to the recipes. We stayed in 4 B&B's on this trip and these breakfasts were definitely among the best of them all.
Our room did not have a television but there was a commons area on the 3 floor where you could watch TV if you had to. We bring books on our vacations so this was no problem for us.
We WILL return!!! Highly recommended!!!

We stayed for three nights at the Gable House in Durango in July of 2013. After some small confusion over which room we had booked (a misunderstanding which Heather more than generously resolved), we settled in for a delightful visit in this charming Western town. Gable House is a huge, historic residence in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood only a few blocks from the main walking part of town. There are many restaurants and shops nearby and the train station is about 10 minutes away. Heather serves excellent breakfasts in her spacious, sunlit dining room. She is also eager to help and has a number of tips and recommendations for making your stay in Durango comfortable and fun. We were there in July and it was apparently unseasonably warm that week, but our room on the second floor stayed reasonably cool. There was also a small balcony on which we would sit in the evenings and read. Despite the heat, we enjoyed the town and would consider going back, perhaps in the spring or the fall. And we would stay at Gable House again without a doubt. Thanks, Heather, for some true Western hospitality.

We stayed 3 nights at Gable House B&B. Our room and en suite BR were very clean. The bed was really comfortable. The location was quiet and very well situated to take in Durango by foot...only 10-12 mins to the train station. Heather was very friendly, helpful with recommendations for dinner and provided very good breakfasts. If we are in the area again we will stay at Gable House.

My husband and I spent two nights here. We had a king bed room on the third floor. There is a nice room to play games, watch TV or check email. There is a lovely balcony to enjoy your wine and watch the sunset. It also has a lovely lawn area outside as well. Heather is an excellent innkeeper. The breakfasts were excellent and she is very helpful in telling us great restaurants to go. There is wireless Internet in each room. We will definitely go back and stay with Heather for a longer visit. Look no further for a clean, quiet and good value place to stay.

Room Tip: If you can't climb a couple flights of stairs, this place is not for you. Also, I could not dele...

We stayed at the Gable House for 3 nights and were made very welcome by Heather, our 3rd floor room was lovely with private bathroom, and the breakfasts were delicious and healthy.
Heather was very helpful with dinner recommendations and knowledge about Durango.
The house is delightful, filled with antiques etc and a joy to return to each day. It was within a few minutes walking distance of shops and restaurants and the neighbourhood was very quiet on an evening. Would definitely stay again if returning to Durango.

I had lived in Durango during my collegiate years and had dreamed of staying at the Gable House when I grew up. So when booking my stay for my new wife and me on our mini-moon, I had high expectations.

Well Heather and the Gable House far exceeded our expectations. We felt at home from the beginning of our stay. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were tasty and healthy, and Heather was outstandingly hospitable.

My wife promptly announced to me: "Every time we come back to Durango, we will be staying at the Gable House." Well you know, happy wife, happy life. Luckily, heather will have us covered.

Heather loves her home and people. Her home reflects this. Everything is clean, comfortable and spotless. She is interested in everything you want to reveal about yourself. It was a hike to the 3rd floor; but the prize was a private bathroom. Breakfast was delightful original homemade cooking. The sadness was that I could only stay 2 nights - this trip.
This was my first experience to stay at a bn'b. Now I do not want to stay anywhere else.
