Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this Victorian house was first built in 1904 by Fred and Myrtle Sammons, it was the home of their dreams.

Then, just living in their new home for only nine months, what every home owner fears happened. Early in 1904, a fire that started in the downtown area and burned down most of Hot Springs at that time also burned down their dream home, there was nothing left standing.

Fred and Myrtle were undaunted in their dream of having a home in Hot Springs. Shortly after the fire they started to rebuild their home just the way it stood before. By the end of 1905 they moved back in their home.

More History

Fred Sammons was the owner of a mercantile store on Central Avenue that sold groceries, feed, cement and other general merchandise. The name of the store was Sammons & Sons.

Fred and Myrtle had four children, their daughter Gladys, lived with them until their death. Gladys never married and continued to live in the house until she passed away in 1991. The house sat vacant for a while, until it was sold to a couple who wanted to convert it into a Bed & Breakfast.

The Gables opened for business in 1993. In 1996 David and Judy bought the inn and are the longest continuously operating B and B innkeepers in the Hot Springs area. David and Judy have worked tirelessly inside and out to make the property the exclusive accommodations you see today.

The inn features four rooms that have been individually decorated, including a private bath for each bedroom. Great detail and consideration make this one of the most elegant Bed & Breakfasts around. Back in 1904, this house was one couples dream home, now over one hundred years later, it is still one couples dream home!
