My husband and I have had the pleasure of many trips to Durango and the surrounding areas, and have stayed in several locations. But none was as delightful as the Gable House. Not only because of it's location close to historic main street, the train depot and riverwalk, but of the house itself and it's wonderful hostess and owner Heather.... More

Having completed two of our three week vacation in areas near Moab Utah, Page Arizona, and Mesa Verde NP Colorado, we were more than ready for some well deserve comfort. We planned a 3 night stay at The Gable House Bed and Breakfast in Durango, Colorado to decompressing prior to heading home. Upon arriving in Durango we stopped for “brunch”... More

In Durango on business my husband and I enjoyed 5 wonderful days and nights at this beautifully restored Victorian home. Returning at the end of each day to this oasis of calm amidst the bustle of 21st century daily life was a gentle reminder to relax and nurture ourselves. The heart of this house is most definitely its owner, and... More

Gable House was the perfect place to stay for our three night visit in Durango, CO. The house and its rooms were charming and comfortable---nooks and crannies and a second-story porch that let us catch the breeze, gaze through leaves of huge trees and feel at home in Durango. Heather, the owner, served elegant but casual breakfasts that made us... More

Beginning of May, we spent a couple of days at The Gable House, in Durango. We were just looking for a comfortable place, nearby Mesa Verde, but I was touched by pictures in internet and decided to stay at The Gable House. It was a wonderful experience. It is a beautiful historic house, with large and comfortable rooms, combining old... More

I like to be fair in reviews. The rooms were plain, none of the quaintness of usual B&Bs, no a/c. At 11pm I was awoken by incessant dog barking and partying in the neighborhood. In fairness to Heather who is a lovely manager, she called the police when I finally sought her out at 2AM. By that time my night... More

Here at the Gable House Bed & Breakfast, the comfort of our clientele is of the utmost importance. With the help of the local police, the owner of the dog who happens to be a new resident of the neighborhood was made aware of the City of Durango’s sound ordinance, which clearly prohibits any such disturbances. Even though the dog’s... More

We just spent 5 nights at the Gable House. A wonderful experience. Heather, who runs the B&B, took special care to preparing gluten free breakfasts - and what delicious breakfasts they were! Heather has a relaxed, calm style that makes you feel right at home. The house itself is a huge Victorian gem set in a quiet Durango neighborhood within... More

We stayed at the Gable House on our way home from Arizona. It was wonderful. Heather gave us her last available room which had a private bath which was not in suite but just a few feet down the hallway. I was a Little hesitant at first but it was great. I never even ran to any of the other... More

Gable House is a restored Victorian beauty in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of Durango's main street and Fort Lewis College. Its hedged yard has several discreet sitting areas beside gardens, some of which grow the herbs and fruits that make the morning breakfasts so delicious! My wife and I were here for a vacation weekend right after... More

This was our first US B&B & a very good experience after 3 weeks of chain hotels, mostly of indifferent quality, The house is lovely as was our room. Heather, our landlady, couldn't have been welcoming. For reasons not relevant to this review, I was very flustered when we arrived & she calmed me down & sorted me out in... More
