“Charming”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The beauty of the house is matched by the charm of the welcome. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and the breakfast is delicious - home baking every morning. It is in an ideal location and within minutes from downtown Durango.

If you get a chance, give yourself a treat. Book your next Durango trip at the Gable. Situated in a very quaint neighborhood, you can easily walk to historic downtown and RR depot......and a few blocks away from Steamworks Brewery (that is a big plus)! Heather is the perfect hostess and made our 2 night stay seem like we were back home. Drinking our Complimentary bottle of wine on our private balcony was wonderful. Great home made breakfasts and the best part......Heather and I chasing two huge 8 pt. bucks from her flower garden.....what a hoot!
Thanks....we really enjoyed our stay.

The Gable House was well decorated and maintained. Very clean! Heather, the owner, was very hospitable and pleasant. We felt very welcome in her home. Yummy breakfast foods were served with style. We have stayed in a number of B and B's and our only negative was the price....a night time treat, a glass of wine would have been a nice extra. The close location of being able to walk to downtown Durango was great. We saw many deer while running and walking in the area! We would recommend staying here.

A comfortable and elegant home, the Gable house became our 'evening of relaxation' earlier this month during a week long road-trip through the 'old mining commuities' of Colorado.

A tasteful and exquisitely maintained location, Heather (the owner/proprietor) delights in ensuring the accommodations provide all that is needed to ensure a peaceful and memorable evening in the Colorado Rockies. Durango has numerous opportunity for 'getaway' adventures. The Gable House provides not only an excellent location (walking distance to downtown) but also a quiet and well-appointed home that ensures you are well rested and 'up and ready' for the next event. A surprise desert presented while enjoying wine on the balcony with friends was very well received. :-)

Given the opportunity, we'll happily visit again.

Thanks Heather!

If you're staying in town, might as well be walking distance to main street. The gable house is a short walk to restaurants, the train and all the downtown attractions. The rooms are warm, bright and comfortable and Heather is a wonderful host.

This was my third straight year at the Gable House and it gets better each year (if that is possible). Heather, our host, and her great partner Michael will make your stay be just like home, without the worry of home chores. The Gable House is luxury, in the most simplest of settings. It is awesome and a must place to stay when you travel to Durango. If you're not sure what to do, Heather or Michael can offer suggestions and plan your day trip. They know all the great places and things to do. The Gable House breakfast is wonderful, the hospitality top-notch and while I'm not visiting, you can spend time on my second floor porch. Now that is a relaxing place to enjoy some quiet time and cocktails.

Room Tip: All the rooms are just beautiful and very clean.

I feel very fortunate to have found this lovely B&B and its owner, Heather, in my recent travels to Durango. This Victorian home is impeccably clean and well appointed in every way without being overdone and flowery as so many Victorians are! The gardens and outdoor space are as and inviting as the inside. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bedrooms and baths are cozy and the linens are top notch and met the approval of this linen-snob :-) Heather treats her guests like royalty and I checked out two days later with a new-found friend. I echo the other reviewers comments on location as well - it couldn't be more convenient.
