We had a wonderful stay at Gable House. Heather couldn't have been more kind and her home was absolutely spotless. I would definitely stay again and/or recommend to friends and family.

Traveling alone, I prefer to stay at B&Bs because of the safety and welcoming atmosphere they afford. The Gable House was no exception. Even upon my initial phone call to make reservations, Heather was most warm and helpful, offering advice and recommendations for my stay. I felt like I was visiting a friend. The house was located within walking distance of historic Durango and the accommodations were clean and just beautiful. Withe delicious breakfast and wonderful company, I could not ask for a better experience.

Spent a remarkable weekend (7/8/11-7/11/11) at this charming B&B. It was remarkable for a number of reasons, not the least of which was that it was QUIET!!!!! I have come to value this above many other amenities. The setting and house itself are exceptional and, truly a 5 minute walk to downtown Durango with all the restaurants you can imagine, in all categories. Heather is very adept at making you feel welcome, cared for and not bothered. She knows and understands this quite well. We were treated to two nights of drenching rain, a joy considering we came from Santa Fe and Austin, where it's been "What rain?" for ages. Sitting on the second floor balcony, safe and dry while the lightening storm provided us with the best show in town was a total treat. The rooms are not that typical, overwrought Victorian that I've come to dread (sorry). This amazing house, all 7,000 sq/ft. of it, has been in Heather's family for 50 (?) years and it certainly shows. You will NOT be disappointed. A great place for a whole family or group that wants to be together and alone at the same time. Remember, it's quiet!!!!!!!!!!! Michael Nicola Santa Fe, NM

5 Star B&B

Heather saved our Durango stay by having a beautiful room available for the two of us. This is truly a wonderful victorian B&B located in a nice residential area but still only a few blocks from Main Street. Heather is a gracious inn keeper that provides five star service and breakfasts. We look forward to visiting Durango again and certainly will make reservations at the Gable House well in advance. The Gable House is one of the finest inns we have stayed at and we have been at MANY! Thank you Heather!

Our First B&B

The Gable house has probably set the bar too high for us to be completely happy somewhere else. The charm of the house and the quiet location just minutes from downtown Durango is only exceeded by the gracious owner, Heather. The food and vibe are awesome!

Wonderful Stay!

The Gable House is a beautiful old Victorian which has been lovingly restored. The house is open, gracious and immaculate. Our room had a pretty little balcony, perfect for reading, sipping wine, and watching the ever charming sky. A delightful find! We'll be back!
