This is a wonderfully preserved craftsman style house. Built as a turnkey project, wonderful details pointed out by knowledgeabe docents. Well worth the visit if you are in the area.

My sister suggested we tour the Gamble House while I was visiting her. While I was lukewarm to the idea, I’m very glad we went. It was a great experience. Beautiful architecture, interesting history, and our tour guide, aria, did an excellent job.

We had to delay our tour because we just walked in. The tour itself was excellent (just over an hour). Unique in design. The attention to detail is amazing. Tie it into a walking tour of the Green and Green houses in the neighborhood.

The Gamble house is one of a kind and is worth a visit for anyone interested in architecture or interior design. Skip the disappointing neighborhood walking tour and do your own tour after picking up a cheap map of the area in the book store.

The Gamble House is a beautiful Craftsman house in a beautiful setting. There is a strong Japanese influence in the design of the house. Designed by Green and Green, the house is throughly curated and a wonderful example of how thoughtful design can transform space....More

The Metro line stops around 1 mile from the House, and there is a bus which goes from Metro to very near the House. The directions are posted on the Gamble House website.
