Had a great stay at Davis Mountains Inn! Clean, pleasant, peaceful, wonderful setting and Martha was wonderful! She not only prepared breakfast but was so friendly and welcoming and provided great information about the area. Will return!

We stayed 3 nites at the Davis Mountains Inn B&B. Everything was wonderful. The location is perfect for exploring the Davis Mountains, and Big Bend area. The room and breakfasts were just excellent. The owner noticed I had left my medications after check out, and mailed them to me at his expense. What a kind service. If we are ever in the Big Bend area again, we will certainly stay at Davis Mountains Inn

The Davis Mountain Inn is the way to go for luxury and at home accommodations, service and lovely owners and staff. The Sleeping Lion Suite is well appointed, spacious and the bath is absolutely decadent. The shower with seat and separate whirlpool tub are large enough for two. Common area has great art, books, piano and two dining areas. Conversation flows easy (rather than forced) and the food is yummy.

We had a fabulous time here. We will definitely be returning. The breakfast was great. The place was clean and nice. Loved it!!
4.6 on May 18, 2015
We stayed at the Inn with another couple, so we shared the family room downstairs. It was very lovely, as was the entire downstairs. The gingerbread snack left for us to enjoy was delicious and breakfast was outstanding--anything you could desire for breakfast was waiting for us. We would stay at the Inn again in a heartbeat.

Our stay at the Davis Mountains Inn was most enjoyable. The house was immaculate and there was plenty of the southwest hospitality that Texas are famous for. We plan to return.
5 on May 16, 2015
A lovely place to stay. Tastefully and comfortably decorated. Enjoyed sharing interesting morning conversations with the owner (while he prepared breakfast) and the other guests! Breakfast each day was different, and provided plenty of options.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Davis Mountain Inn in Alpine, Texas, while we were visiting the McDonald Observatory. The Davis Mountain Inn was clean and comfortable and the breakfast - prepared by Martha - was outstanding! We highly recommend the Davis Mountain Inn!

Would love to make this a regular destination. People are friendly, accommodations lovely, scenery and weather - amazing!

We stayed there 3 nights. The views around us were outstanding and we were convenient to everywhere in the Ft Davis area. By the way, it was worth staing there for the coffee and pancakes.

Wonderful hospitality, good food, very comfortable accommodations.

This was a first for us,(bed and breakfast) we loved it! This is a nice place to stay. The best thing was Bill and Nancy. I had read in another review they had hot cookies waiting for them, we didn't. We will stay here again. This is a GREAT place to get away. Loved it!

We were guests at Davis Mountains Inn over Christmas. We had a wonderful time even though the weather was not so great. The Inn is beautifully decorated and maintained. The food was wonderful with great variety and ample amounts. Our room was on the second floor and we had some heating issues in the beginning, but our host took care of the problem and then continued to check with us to be sure we were comfortable. It was a most relaxing stay.
2.8 on January 06, 2015
The host was very nice and the bed and meals were overall good. Check your room carefully for supplies, however--there was no hand soap, bath soap, or tissues in the bathroom when we arrived. The toilet had not been cleaned properly, either. Pillow quality was also substandard; you might want to bring your own...
3.8 on December 11, 2014
We got the attic room because it was the only one left for 3 days over Thanksgiving. As mentioned in other reviews you have to watch your head when you bend down near the wall but otherwise it was a clean pleasant room. The breakfast service was very friendly and as much as you could eat of cooked on the spot eggs and other goodies. The owners were very helpful with questions and accommodated us with cereal and fruit when we left really early for a day down at Big Bend. As an astronomer I really appreciated the total lack of outside lighting to make a really dark sky. I would definitely go back and stay here vs. any hotel/motel in Fort Davis.

A great place in every way - we spent four night and hated to leave. We'll be back if we head out that way again. C.M. Hawn
3.6 on December 02, 2014
Have stayed with these folks several times, always a pleasure. This stay was (accidentally) booked at an alternate location of theirs...had a full kitchen, very roomy. I'll pick it on purpose next time.

A wonderful place to stay.

We made a last minute family trip to the the Davis Mountains and were able to book a weeknight stay at the Davis Mountains Inn. The owners and staff were exceptionally nice. Even though we had a loose agenda, they gave us the "insider scoop" on things to see while visiting and we followed their suggestions and saw some of the sights we hadn't originally planned on seeing. The breakfast was really great too! We will definitely plan on staying there again next time we travel that way.
4.2 on August 22, 2014
We thourghly enjoyed our stay; the room was very clean and the property was beautiful.

My wife and I stayed one night in the Sleeping Lion Suite at the Davis Mountains Inn in August of 2014. This very nice suite includes a surprisingly spacious bathroom. The lovely, friendly and professional Adriana served us an excellent breakfast. We are very likely to return. Larry & Pamela in San Antonio

Stayed at Southgate lodges "North Forty" on a photo trip. The place was way more than I needed but the price was right. Large rooms, quality furnishings and quiet location in town were all perfect.
3.4 on August 02, 2014
Roomy and clean accomodations. Nice and quiet. Great beds.
3.8 on August 02, 2014
Spent 4 nights in the Sleeping Lion room. Was very comfortable. Bathroom mirror a little odd since it is in between the two sinks. For a man shaving, he must move away from sink to look into mirror. Loved the jetted tub but must get into tub to turn water on. However these small things would not discourage us from staying there again.

Nice but to many rules that are not stated

They didn't have the room unlocked when we arrived and had to find key. They baked us a dozen chocolate chip cookies and brought to our house with a sweet note. We had everything we needed with three bedrooms and two baths. It was great for us and our three kids. plenty roomy and close to all the attractions, but quiet.
5 on June 28, 2014
I recently had the pleasure of spending a few days at the B&B. It gets 5 stars by me for charm, comfort, quality, and hospitality! The inn keepers were friendly and welcoming. I definitely left with a couple more friendships than I arrived with. Breakfast was homemade and something different every morning I was there. The company was friendly as well. I think the inn draws a positive class of people. Homemade cookies in the afternoon. The only thing missing was a chocolate on my pillow. ;) I hope to return again for a relaxing real from my crazy life.
4.2 on June 28, 2014
We came to the B&B, being the first time going to one. View was outstanding, loved the water fountain in back, and we pulled a blanket and laid on the grass for hours and walked around barefoot. Hostess was super friendly, very accommodating, and even had breakfast made even though we got up after breakfast was done being served. Only thing, if using GPS, get your route before you run out of cell service. But once you know where it is, it is easily accessible.
5 on June 25, 2014
This was an excellent place to stay.
5 on June 23, 2014
We spent four wonderful days at the Davis Mountains Inn; it was a pure delight. From the beautiful inn, to the lovely Guide Peak room, to the sumptuous breakfast, fresh baked cookies and fantastic surroundings, you won't want to leave. We are already planning a return trip! Lynne, Florida

My husband and I recently stayed at the Davis Mountain Inn in order to visit the nearby observatory. We found the Inn online, and weren't sure what to expect. We immediately fell in love with the home, and our room was beautiful! The owners were so welcoming at breakfast, and we felt right at home. What we thought was a one time stop, has become someplace we want to visit regularly and we have already booked another stay for our extended family to come with us in a few months!
4.6 on June 15, 2014
We had a great time in Fort Davis and enjoyed staying at this B&B. Nice facility, quiet, good food. Recommend this if you are in the area.
4.6 on June 15, 2014
The room was exactly as described, comfy bed and luxurious tub. Watched a thunderstorm roll in. Had a wonderful dinner in town at Blue Mountain Bistro. I left my glasses there, and the next day someone called me back and mailed them to me. Wonderful people and amazing country!
4.6 on June 15, 2014
This was like renting a home for the night. The home is out in the country a little ways and had pretty landscaping and grounds surrounding it. The room we stayed in had a comfortable bed and great linens and pillows. Our room had a bathroom. We had access to the living room and kitchen. It was very quiet. There was only 1 other couple there when we were there which was nice. Breakfast in the morning was great with bacon, scrambled eggs, yogurt, The cook was very friendly and gave us some information on the area. She even cooked my husband special eggs. Then, she baked cookies for us to snack on. We will certainly stay here again if we come this was and would reccommend it
5 on June 11, 2014
Only complaint is that the Central A/C was controlled by the adjoining unit - we had no control of the temperature at all. We did have a window a/c in the kitchen which we could use when it got hot in the unit - it was adequate. Problem occurred when it got cold - either open windows/door or freeze your butt off. other than this inconvenience, great place with small fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker in kitchen. Bathroom had two separate sinks, shower, and oversize tub for two. Separate living area w/fireplace and TV and a bedroom w/large closet/iron and the King size bed was very comfortable. Superb value and location. I have given the service and dining an outstanding - BUT , THERE WAS NO SERVICE AVAILABLE (YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN) and only a couple of places to eat in town. This was a unit totally separate from the main lodge - hence no service but plenty of roomy privacy (probably around 900-1000 sq. ft.).
5 on May 29, 2014
This is a great and private one bedroom in the mountains of Fort Davis. I didn't rate service or good because it is secluded and you don't see anyone. There was a kitchen for meal prep and the drive to town is a short 12 minutes. The porch is wonderful. It was exactly what we needed. Peace and quiet to relax and enjoy the views which included deer and many birds.
4.8 on May 26, 2014
The B&B was excellent. It was very peaceful, amenities were delicious and the owner was extremely cooperative in providing information regarding the town and knowledgeable about its history.
5 on April 30, 2014
I stayed in the sleeping lion room & absolutely loved the room! Private entrance & wow the jacuzzi was amazing! Peaceful & perfect location, close enough into the main area of Fort Davis but far enough away for a little bit of peace. Cannot wait to go back.
1.4 on April 28, 2014
Mold smell in bathroom. Torn linens on bed. Mini fridge temp not adjustable - froze whatever we put in it. Hot water shared with adjacent unit - you snooze you loose. Walls with adjacent unit very thin - don't say anything out loud if you want it private. Living room had two large couches for sitting but no coffee or end tables to set things on. It did have a nice front porch. Overall very disappointing and over priced,
3.8 on April 25, 2014
Everything was wonderful, except that the inn does not have a GPS address and is easy to miss. It took us several calls and some driving around to get there.
4.8 on April 23, 2014
The Inn is a lovely place Our room was excellent the proprietors are quality people and very, very nice.The breakfast is awesome and it was very enjoyable meeting some of the other guest. If you are within a 100 miles of Ft. Davis make it a point to stay here!!!
5 on April 09, 2014
This was our first time in Fort Davis. The peaceful, friendly and clean atmosphere of our stay was incredible! Bill and Nancy have a couple of lodging properties which they have transformed into a 'welcome home' feeling. So much enjoyed our stay. We will return!
4.8 on April 02, 2014
My girlfriend and I went on a tour of West Texas. We stayed in several hotels but our favorite places were Fort Davis and the Davis Mountains Inn. The rooms were great and the atmosphere and town were quaint and peaceful. It was so nice to wake up in the morning to a well cook and hearty breakfast that changed daily. I highly recommend that if you are traveling out to West Texas for some fresh air and quite, stay at the Davis Mountains Inn.
5 on April 01, 2014
There had been a computer mixup in our reservation, but it was quickly fixed and we enjoyed a good night's sleep and a wonderful breakfast prepared by our hosts. This was much superior to a hotel stay. The house is bright and cheerful as are the hosts!
2.6 on April 01, 2014
I loved the room. We stayed in the Lion Mountain Master Suite. Beautiful tub, nice shower. Lovely linens. Nice romantic touches. But the walls are so thin between the two downstairs rooms (only separated by a door and a corridor that obviously echoed the sounds) that we found ourselves unable to sleep due to the very loud snoring and sleep moaning by the couple in the other room. It was nice to have a separate entrance and breakfast was very nice. Stayed two nights but slept fitfully both nights due to the very loud noises. I don't know what they could do differently, but it definitely made our stay less than optimal. We have decided that B&B stays are just not for us, if that's a concern at all B&B venues.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our guests always compliment us on the Sleeping Lion Master Suite's comfortable accommodations. This is a very surprising comment since there is a door, a hallway, a bathroom and another bedroom door between the two units which would not be the case in a standard hotel with only one wall between units. I am pleased that you appreciated the private entrance, the Jacuzzi tub, large shower, lovely linens, and the "nice breakfast". While the Inn is upscale to most Bed and Breakfasts don't give up on the B & B experience. We do take customer comments and suggestions seriously, thank you for your feedback.
5 on March 16, 2014
Nice place, very, very nice people! If we go back that way, we will plan to stay there again!
5 on March 15, 2014
We don't normally stay in B&Bs. But this one was great! Fantastic folks, great food, and tremendous location. We will definitely be telling our friends!

As part of a little road trip through Texas we wanted to do the "Star Party" at the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis and a little search for a place to crash pointed me to the Davis Mountains Inn. Nice big home and our main floor room with private bath was clean and comfortable. As it's not a busy time and we happened to be the only guests for the night (and we spent most of the time out at the observatory!) we didn't interact with the staff much so I suppose that part of the visit may be a bit different at a busier time of year. We are early risers so getting up to find our coffee, tea and home cooked breakfast all underway was most welcome and filled us nicely for the day ahead. All in all a great spot to say and the next time we come down that way (and we want to go to the observatory again) we'll book this place without question.

My fiancé and I drive across country from San Diego to North Florida. Along the way we wanted to stay at Bed & Breakfasts. I found Davis Mountain, which was about an hour out of our way, but we are ao glad we decided to stay there. It was in a cute small town, excellent service and our room was perfect :) Thank you :)
5 on November 11, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Davis Mountains Inn. Bill, Nancy and all the staff were very welcoming. This small town has no fast food establishments - in fact, no one was ever in a hurry. Peaceful, good views, great room - can't wait to go back.
5 on November 06, 2013
We had a big group and rented on suite and 3 rooms for 3 nights. Everyone really enjoyed this location! The rooms were clean and decorated nicely. The beds are comfortable. The grounds are very peaceful and beautiful. Deer were feeding in the morning and beautiful butterflies. The atmosphere was like home with snacks in the kitchen. The coffee was brewing first thing in the morning and the homemade breakfast each morning had different selections and were wonderful! I would, and already have, highly recommend this great place!
3.8 on November 01, 2013
There are numerous things that need to be repaired. Just to name a few - Leaky faucets in shower and in tub, Window screen off. Front porch hand-railings rotting. Door mats need to be replaced. US flag is tattered. Entire house needs to be vacuumed completely. Bushes need to be trimmed. Flower beds need a lot of work. We thought we were dealing directly with the owners but realized we were dealing with Bed and Breakfast.com
3.8 on October 30, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at Mountain Davis Inn. Angelia was a delight. She was full of information about the Fort Davis area. Her breakfasts were delicious also. We stayed in the Sawtooth Ridge Room. The room was comfortable, clean and decorated nicely however there is no handrail going up the stairs to this room. It is very steep. Carrying luggage, with nothing to help balance, is dangerous. The entire house was exceptionally nice and clean. With the addition of a handrail for the upstairs room, I would give it an A+.
4.8 on October 28, 2013
Davis Mountains Inn was a delightful place to stay during our visit to West Texas. The home is warm and inviting and the room and bed were comfortable. We enjoyed chatting in the living room, and one night we played dominoes. It was like a home away from home with no worries. The breakfasts were hearty and tasty, and all the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We will stay here again if we are in the area.
4.8 on October 27, 2013
We were fortunate to meet Bill and Nancy Davis our first morning at the B&B. They are lovely people as is their home . Our room was super! The breakfast was great! The company of the staff was just right. They were also very helpful with information about the surrounding area. If you're going to be in this area of Texas I whole heartily recommend staying at the Davis Mountains Inn.
4.6 on October 22, 2013
We stayed here for a week in the Sleeping Lion Suite, using the Inn as our central point while we traveled around to various attractions in the region, as well as New Mexico. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, without being intrusive at all. The suite itself is well worth the price per night, as you get the typical creature comforts of a B&B, along with some nice amenities such as a large walk-in closet, hot tub, walk-in shower, and a large counter space with two bathroom sinks in case you or the significant other needs it. The rooms are tended to while you are out and about, with free breakfast every morning. The breakfast food is standard issue- bacon, eggs, biscuits, etc., but better than the free breakfasts you see at your typical hotel. Overall, well worth the price, and we will be returning again for sure.

I would (and actually hope to) stay at this delightful B&B again. We reserved two rooms. Everyone said it was a great choice: immaculate, quiet, beautiful, good breakfast, and beautiful rooms and living room.

I would stay here again and recommend this Inn,
3.8 on August 18, 2013
My family of 4 had a pleasant stay at the Davis Mountains Inn recently. The Fischer Hill Suite is perfect for families! We found it a little odd that upon arrival, we had to check ourselves in. If there were problems, you had to call the owners. Breakfast was the usual fare--eggs, bacon, toast, and your choice of beverage. All in all it was a nice stay but it would be nice for someone to be on the premises at all times.
3.8 on August 15, 2013
Large 3 BR unit, easily sleeps 6. Very comfortable beds and nice new furniture. Could use some more eating/kitchen amenities( e.g. were asked to wash dishes, but no soap provided), but I know this is a recently purchased property and a work in progress. If charging for missing towels, need to be sure count is accurate. Overall a pleasant, quiet unit very conveniently located close to town. Will likely return.
4.0 on August 15, 2013
Great spot for a romantic getaway. Our room was great, king bed, huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub for two and a big shower. Nice garden area was perfect for drinking our morning coffee. Great breakfast. Not a lot to do in Fort Davis but just what we wanted.

This was the second time we stayed at the Inn and it was wonderful. My mother and father were with us and they said out of all the Bed and Breakfast's they had stayed at in the many years of their travels (which have been many) that Davis Mountain Inn ranked as one of the very best.
4.4 on July 17, 2013
Everything was outstanding. The only thing is that the rooms do not have the bathroom within. The bathroom is shared by at least two rooms. It would have been perfect is the bathroom was withing the bedrooms. Luckily we were the only ones there for the night and we did not have to share it with someone else. Other than that, it was great. The cook who prepared out breakfast was outstanding and did a magnificent job. I would recommend this to anyone.
Thank you for staying at Davis Mountains Inn recently and for taking the time to write a review. I want to clarify that Davis Mountains Inn only has 2 rooms that share a bathroom (Blue Mountain and Mt. Livermore). EVERY other room has private baths in their rooms. I will make sure our cook gets your compliment on breakfast.... she does a terrific job! Please visit us again soon and ask about our 10% discount as a returning guest!
4.4 on July 14, 2013
The room we stayed in was just what we expected from the picture. Its was nice abd spaceous for the four of us. The staff was sweet and helpful. And the cook was wonderful.

The rooms are very clean, views are spectacular, staff was very friendly and helpful. They made you feel at home in every aspect. The bisquits are out of this world and home made. If I am ever in Ft. Davis again I will definately stay here again. Thanks for a warm welcome!!!!
3.8 on June 30, 2013
The house was easy to find. It was nice to have warm bread pudding awaiting us. Being the summer, the upstairs rooms were quite warm and did not cool off until the middle of the night.
5 on June 23, 2013
My kids had a great time! We stayed at the Casa de Gracias. The Davis' had recently purchased it. We enjoyed our time and will be returning again to the Observatory and we plan on staying with this family every time we make this trip! My kids especially enjoyed "comfortable couches and beds...(and tv :-)) I appreciated the full kitchen and prepared several meals there. Because we stayed at the Casa, we did not have the opportunity to enjoy the Davis' famous food! But the survey will not accept and review without a rating, so I put 5 stars - I heard it was good! Will have to try at the next visit!
4.0 on June 15, 2013
This truly felt like a home away from home! It was very cozy and owner Bill was a great host! The room looked exactly the same as it did online and there were no surprises. Very well kept and even had a nice backyard to relax and enjoy the crisp mountain air. Would definitely recommend and to anyone staying in the Fort Davis area.

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the South Forty King suite. There was some inital confusion about our room assignment, but once that was settled we enjoyed a fantastic weekend here! The HUGE bathtub is awesome and the king-sized bed is super comfortable. I enjoyed having a coffee maker in the bathroom and gourmet coffee, creamers,etc. are provided. The room was exceptionally clean and the decor was very nice. The only thing that would have made our stay more comfortable is if a kitchen sink had been provided in the kitchenette area. We had a great time for a great price and we plan to come back!
4.4 on June 03, 2013
The Inn was a great place to stay, near Ft. Davis and Marfa both. Lovely home, comfortable room, I felt right at home there. It was nice and quiet, I could sit on the back porch or front porch and enjoy the stars and the evening sounds. Breakfast was yummy and I enjoyed the company of the other guests and conversation with Angela.

Four of us stayed in the guest apartment. It was pleasant - although the bedrooms were small. We weren't there long enough and the weather wasn't good enough for us to truly enjoy the lovely location of this lovingly run B&B. The breakfast was homemade good. This B&B can be recommended.
5 on May 20, 2013
The bed and breakfast carries a warm and welcoming environment. The owners were always around to ensure that guest felt welcomed and answer any questions about the area and what attractions were close by. The place was clean, the food was delicious, and the Texas hospitality was very apparent. It was a perfect weekend.
5 on May 07, 2013
Very nice place. 'homemade" breakfast was the best. Not in town, but close enough to be just right.

Beautiful House And scenery Stars at night were awesome
4.2 on May 01, 2013
My wife and I spent last Friday night staying in this suite after we could not find a room in Marfa. I believe this was better than staying in Marfa. Visiting witht the other guests and getting to know Bill & Nancy Davis, the owners, was a real treat. If you are looking for a place to stay, relax and have a great breakfast before heading out this is the place.

Spacious, private studio with friendly horses, cats and a dog that showed us around the property. The star gazing here is exceptional given that the studio is halfway between Fort Davis and the McDonald Observatory so there is practically no light pollution. If it is going to be cold out, definitely bring plenty of warm clothing since the space heater in the studio can only do so much. Also there is no cell or wifi available at the studio, you have to drive up the road a ways to get a signal just so you know.
4.4 on April 10, 2013
Rooms are clean, reasonably priced, and well appointed. Breakfast was the really good, and there was plenty to eat. The Inn has well cared for grounds, and there are places to set up a telescope and enjoy the magnificent dark skies. I will be staying here on my future visits.

My husband and I wanted a weekend in Ft. Davis and chose to stay at the Davis Mountains Inn. We stayed in the Sleeping Lion Master Suite and it was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom were quite spacious. In fact, it even had large walk-in closet. The breakfast each morning was delicious and there was plenty for everyone. I would stay there again!

We had a wonderful time at the beautiful and charming Davis Mountains Inn. We truly felt like house guests of Bill and Nancy. I'm just sorry we couldn't stay longer. I will recommend the Inn to anyone I know visiting Fort Davis and/or the McDonald Observatory.
5 on March 31, 2013
Excellent everything. Bill and Nancy have the details down pat. After a long motorcycle ride to the Davis Mountains and Observatory the DMI was a just what we needed to wind down and rest for the next day. Accommodations were perfect. Angela made a hearty and superb breakfast. Be sure to have a meal and some ice cream at the Ft Davis Drug Store.

Our recent stay at this property was excellent. The management was very attentive and friendly. The property was also new, clean and very roomy. It was so nice to have our "home away from home" to return to each day. We would recommend Davis Mountains Inn to anyone traveling to Ft. Davis.

Bill and Nancy were great hosts and it was a very restful weekend. Great place to get away.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Davis Mountains Inn B&B last week. This newer house has old world charm and warmth! The hosts, Bill and Nancy Davis, were incredible and made sure our stay was relaxing. As long time residents of Ft. Davis, they know the area like the back of their hand and provided "insider" info into all the area has to offer. This is our second visit and we will definitely be back! We stayed in the Sleeping Lion Suite on our first visit - great room with 2 person spa tub and a private entrance to the back deck! Last week, we stayed in the Guide Peak Room and enjoyed the private bath and comfortable bed! Immaculately decorated and clean! It was a great romantic getaway for us! In our opinion, it's the best B&B in the area!

Everything was fine except the low ceilings in attic suite was a problem since I am 6" 3" Other than that we were very pleased.Miss Angela serves the best breakfast this side of the Pecos!!!

We (2 couples) stayed in the 2-bedroom suite while passing through. Actually we exited I-10 on the way from Arizona, thinking Ft. Davis might be an interesting town to stay in. We were impressed from the minute we walked in. We arrived late, and keys with a note were awaiting us on the table. The suite was fantastic, and little things like really thick bath towels made our stay perfect.

We chose the Davis Mountain Inn for a one-night "get-away". Super clean, nice rooms. Bill and Nancy were very pleasant. Breakfast was amazing!!!

Had a wonderful experience at the Davis Mountains Inn. Our suite was warm, inviting and immaculate. The breakfast was so yummy and our conversations with the inn's owners was lively, informative and fun. Can't wait to go back.

Drove in from Carlsbad returning to San Antonio from a road trip to the Grand Canyon. Our stay made us reconsider B&B's for future travels. We've used B&B's through Europe, but not within the US. Very pleasantly surprised with our experience in the Davis Mountains and would not hesitate to stay at this quiet, retreat again.
4.6 on January 13, 2013
The room was clean, comfortable and perfect. The hosts super nice. would definitely recommend to friends and return ourselves.

We stayed Davis Mountains Inn when we attended a star party at McDonald Observatory nearby. It was a great experience - the house was charming, the hosts were very friendly and cooked up a mean breakfast. If I ever need a place in that area again, I would definitely go back. The rates were reasonable and our room was very comfortable.
4.6 on January 06, 2013
We spent two nights at the Davis Mountain Inn in December 2012. We would highly recommend it. The location is convenient to Fort Davis and the Davis Mountains, Marfa, and the Big Bend Parks. Service was fantastic. It's a great value, comfortable, warm, and friendly.

Lovely B&B! Nancy, Heather, and Bill did a great job. Fort Davis area is beautiful. Breakfast was amazing each day.

What a great stay! Bill, Nancy, and Heather were so welcoming. My family and I felt very at home. Great breakfast, comfy rooms, and plenty to do and see in the surrounding area. Would definitely stay again.

Me and my girlfriend traveled to Fort Davis, Tx all the way from Houston. We very were surprised and delighted at the hospitality of Nancy, Bill and the others around the house. It was a very friendly environment to be in -especially coming from Houston having to deal with the Big City mentality! Very relaxing accommodations. And it was only 20 minutes away from McDonald's Observatory, which has an amazing facility for star watching. and if you don't feel like driving that short... you can simply go into the back yard of the Bed and Breakfast and look up :). Beautiful Place. Delicious Breakfast! We will be returning one day!

Had a little difficulty locating it as we arrived at 8.30pm. Loved the room (sleeping lion suite), cleanliness and safety. Location is beautiful.

This place was awesome! The rooms were clean and inviting. The enitre place was laid out so well that one could enjoy anything from absolute privacy to socializing with other visitors in the common areas. The views both day and night were incredible and that alone was worth the stay. The people were great, both the hosts and the other people who were also visiting. We were so happy we extended our stay by two days.
5 on November 25, 2012
Davis Mountains Inn (DMI) came highly recommended to us by a friend. In spite of the online photos and the rave review of my friend, DMI still exceeded all our expectations. The place was spotless, beautifully furnished, with thick towels, crisp sheets, night-time snacks, and a scrumptious breakfast. The best part, which is usually the case, was visiting with the owners, Nancy and Bill, hearing about their busy, interesting lives and learning more about Ft Davis, the town they love. Oh, and Nancy played piano . . . beautifully.
4.2 on November 21, 2012
cozy common area, friendly owners - very accommodating, convenient to McDonald observatory
5 on November 08, 2012
The B&B was an enjoyable experience, the hospitality of the owners was outstanding along with the food, very clean rooms.
5 on November 04, 2012
This is a great place to stay in a very beautiful part of Texas. Close to town and the McDonald Observatory. The owners and staff were very friendly. The room was exactly as shown on the website. Great dark skies and a very nice backyard with power if you bring your own telescope. We would stay again. One thing to note is the 911 address for the inn is not even close to the physical address so use the GPS co-ordinances or the town of Fort Davis then follow the directions from their website.

Very nice place, very nice people, and convenient location. Highly recommended!

Upon our arrival, we found a German Chocolate cake waiting for us to share. I liked the deco. The rooms and house were comfortable. Our hosts were accommodating; they were willing to add my son for breakfast if he had been able to stop in. We were there only in the evening for two evenings so we did not tour the grounds but the back yard looked nice. It is right next door to an rv park. Two upstairs bathrooms share a bathroom. We were in one of those rooms. There was no one in the other room so we had the bathroom to ourselves. I was glad not to share as the bathroom is small and I would not have been sure how to clean it between our showering and those in the other room. I woulds definitely stay here again without hesitation.
4.6 on October 22, 2012
This is a very nice bed and breakfast. The property is well maintained with lots of beautiful flowers surounding the house. The rooms are more than adequate and well furnished. The breakfast was very good with several things to choose from and the owners are very nice and helpful. This was a totally great experience!

i highly recommend the Davis Mountain Inn. Bill and Linda were excellent hosts. The Inn was peaceful and beautiful.. The breakfast, prepared by Bill and Linda, was excellent and a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests.

We recently made a family trip to Ft. Davis on our way to Big Bend and stayed at the Davis Mountain Inn.....it was wonderful! We were able to reserve two rooms for our family. One was perfect for my in-laws who are no longer married (they had separate rooms within the room! and a common area) The other room rented was nearby theirs....we mentioned that our small son would be staying in our room and they set a small bed in our room to make it more comfortable! We appreciated that! In the morning we were treated to great hospitality by a homemade breakfast and great conversation from our hosts! Thank you Bill and Nancy for welcoming us into your lovely home. Don't forget to visit their restaurant in town ;)
5 on August 27, 2012
The rooms, grounds, and general atmosphere were serene and well-kept. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We'll be back!
5 on August 15, 2012
We were in need of some R&R and found Davis Mountains Inn to be the perfect, remote, get-away. It was peaceful and quiet. I finished my book in the beauty of the back yard garden and our room was romantic and inviting. I even sat down at the baby grand and played a few classical pieces from Nancy's collection. Bill and Nancy are great cooks, invisible when you want to be alone, but there for some good conversation if you're interested. You'll have to travel for a good dinner but the town of Davis is fun to walk through.
5 on August 11, 2012
Thanks Bill, Nancy and Heather for going the extra way to make our 19th anniversary extra special. The Roses were beautiful. Thanks for everything and making us feel at home. We look foward to our next visit.
5 on August 10, 2012
We happened on this gem in Fort Davis through the internet. We had a lovely room with a view of the mountains. It was close to quaint Fort Davis with its shops and delightful Drug Store restaurant! The hosts were amazing. They are interesting, efficient and very accommodating. We would highly recommend this spot :)
4.2 on August 09, 2012
Very nice stay. Comfortable beds. Great breakfast. Soft water would be appreciated.

The Sleeping Lion was the Master of the original house. Huge walk-in closet with mini fridge...huge 2 person walk-in shower...huge 2 person tub with jets in huge bathroom with two sinks...felt like home. My wife is very hesitant to stay long away from the comforts of home...but not when she saw this room. Bill and Nancy are great people and most informative. Nancy use to work at the Fort Davis Historical Fort and she shared her knowledge of it's history beyond the norm. Bill offered great suggestions of things to do in the area beyond the obvious. We stayed 3 relaxing nights and took in all the sites including Marfa lights and Alpine Big Bend Museum. We added a night to our trip at the Chisos Mountain Lodge in the middle of Big Bend after Bill highly recommended the scenic drive on hwy 170 from Persidio to Big Bend.

Our stay was great! Nice place, nice grounds and great food. Only comment would be to have more comfortable chairs on the porch/yard for reading.

Thank you for your hospitality! We hope to return next year! The Dahlstrom's
5 on July 23, 2012
First time at a B&B. Was kind of hesitant and didn't know what to expect. After two days of staying there I would definitely go back. Our suite was very clean and spacious. The owners Bill and Nancy were very professional and at the same time treated you like family. Loved eating breakfast in the beautiful kitchen.
5 on July 20, 2012
Stayed one night. Room was big and easy to relax in. Breakfast was outstanding. Had very good conversation with Bill in the morning. Wonderful place.
5 on July 16, 2012
Booked at the last minute for a quick get-away....could not have been more pleasantly surprised. Bill and Nancy were simply the best. Will look forward to visiting them again!
5 on July 16, 2012
Our hosts, Bill and Nancy Davis, are gracious, helpful, and friendly. The room was well-appointed and very comfortable. Our breakfast was delicious, and the conversationwith the Davises and the other couple staying that night -- over homemade pancakes, Nancy's grandmother's homemade syrup recipe, bacon and eggs -- was engaging. We made new friends. You can't ask for more.
5 on June 29, 2012
Very enjoyable and friendly B & B. We would defintely stay here again.
4.2 on June 21, 2012
The rooms were clean and the hospitality was great. It felt like a home away from home. Also, it is close to the observatory and you can easily access everything in town from this inn very easily.

Our family really enjoyed the stay at the Davis Mountains Inn...best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. Beautiful place and the staff was very friendly and informative.
4.4 on June 20, 2012
I'll admit that I've spent much more for a decent B&B so I was a little skeptical before my arrival. I was not only pleasantly surprised but nearly blown away at what a great little place this is right outside of downtown Fort Davis. My wife and I stayed in the Sleeping Lion room with the jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. Definitely worth the extra $ if that is what you are looking for but from what I saw the other rooms were of equal value. The service was great! Angela was extremely hospitable - providing information on day trips and destinations in the area. She also cooked an outstanding and hearty breakfast every morning (Note: her cinnamon pancakes are to die for). I'd recommend this place to anyone planning a trip to the Davis Mountains / Marfa area.
4.8 on June 18, 2012
Very clean, peaceful, and definitely welcoming. A place we can count on as a home away from home.
4.2 on June 13, 2012
The homemade breakfasts were outstanding! Our host made us feel right at home and gave us many wonderful pointers for activities and about the scenery that we enjoyed. We also enjoyed relaxing in the garden. One of the bedrooms would have been better with a ceiling fan like the other one had.

Beautiful inn, charming room, and a wonderful breakfast! A perfect place to relax.
4.8 on May 29, 2012
We enjoyed our overnight stay very much. The only thing we regret is that we didn't stay longer. Our hosts couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious! We felt as though we were with friends and will definately go back.
5 on May 22, 2012
My wife and I stayed at Davis Mountains Inn for 2 nights. The room was very nice and clean and the bed very comfortable. The people that ran it were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was very good. We would stay here again given the opportunity.

A very pleasant and comfortable place to stay. Wonderful breakfast to get the day started right.

A short two day stay was a delight. Quiet and peaceful. Bed was very comfortable. An overall A-1 experience.I'll be back in October for another stay.
5 on April 30, 2012
This was a great night spent at a Bed and Breakfast. After a week of camping at Big Bend this was a nice retreat. The food was great, Angela, our Hostess, was friendly and informative of local events and such. I had the pleasure of speaking to Dessa on the phone she was very nice.

Wonderful peaceful stay and great inn keepers. Very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

This was a wonderful place for three adults since we needed two bedrooms and we got the suite with kitchen and breakfast The decor is nice, breakfast was good and we enjoyed talking to the other guests at breakfast. It was a great place to stay while we visited the McDonald Observatory. We highly recommend it!
3.4 on April 26, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at the Davis Mountain Inn. It is a nice place and they are obviously working to make it better. I would stay there again.
4.6 on April 18, 2012
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay, and will be back if anywhere near the area again.
5 on April 18, 2012
This is the perfect escape when you just need to get away from it all. No cell phone and no internet made me a happy boy. The proximity to both Fort Davis and McDonald Observatory are perfect. The roads are beautiful. The hosts great. I highly recommend staying here if you want seclusion and privacy.
Just a note to readers.... this review is pertaining to the Arabella Mountain Studio. The Davis Mountains Inn DOES have cell service and internet but you can still get away from it all and leave those communication devices in the car! :0)
4.4 on April 11, 2012
The Inn was lovely and comfortable. The hosts were warm, friendly and helpful. Angela can sure cook a delicious breakfast. Sitting in the back by the outdoor fireplace and waterfall was very relaxing. My family truly enjoyed their stay at the DMI and I will be more than happy to return to this welcoming Inn.
5 on April 11, 2012
Recently spent an evening here and loved it! We stayed in the Sleeping Lion Master Suite which was beautiful. The room was spacious and cozy. The private bathroom featured a dual showerhead and a jacuzzi tub - both were fantastic! The entire facility was clean, comfortable and welcoming. We slept in on Saturday morning and Nancy was sweet enough to save breakfast for us! Overall this was an awesome experience. I will definitely be recommending the Davis Mountains Inn to my friends and will most assuredly stay here again!
5 on March 22, 2012
My wife and I stayed here 18-months ago. It was great as before. I would dare say, this bed and breakfast will spoil you! Highly recommend this inn.
So good to visit with you again! Let's go for three.....
4.2 on March 16, 2012
The hostess, Nancy, that made us breakfast was incredible and very welcoming. It was a little odd to not be greeted by someone when we arrived, but the instructions by the front table were clear and easy to understand. In the morning, we got to meet other guests at the kitchen table who were all very interesting and friendly to interact with. We had a wonderful visit! I only wish we could have stayed longer. Gorgeous view and a secluded little area that is not far at all from all the restaurants (walking distance).

Thank you for staying again at the Davis Mountains Inn.

We were at the Inn during the "off" season and were the only inhabitants of this huge house. The joy was when Angela would arrive at 7AM and start stirring in the kitchen. Less than an hour later there was a lavish spread laid out for us. And she joined us at the table with her coffee and gave us the 'low-down' about the area.
5 on February 27, 2012
We were tired after our long trip and were pleasantly suprised to find cookies. wonderful comfortable beds and 2 other quests we chatted with. Quiet, restful, very clean and then to top it all off a spectacular breakfast that set us for the day. We were surprised to see other guests in morning since it was so quiet where we slept. We all chatted away and were given great info about the area. Highly recommend

1st time at a Bed n Breakfast. Great experience! Loved the house and the hosts! Really interested in renting the entire house for our bike club! Great location and beautiful view!

The Davis Mountains Inn was beyond my expectations. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Bill and Nancy are warm, gracious hosts and their breakfasts are delicious! Plus, the price is extremely reasonable. I definitely recommend Davis Mountains Inn and look forward to returning someday. Debbie W.

My stay at Davis Mountains Inn was totally spectacular. Bill and Nancy make each guest feel at home--they make a wonderful breakfast, too. The icing on the cake was meeting the family. I feel as if I've made some new friends. Thanks!
4.6 on December 27, 2011
This should be called a BREAKFAST & BED place. The breakfasts are to die for. On separate days we had the full variety for breakfast's, all hot and freshly made. Biscuits, pancakes, french toast, breakfast quiche, and chilaquiles to name a few. The room was as advertised. We stayed in the the big suite and it was room enough for four adults, with one bathroom. Also included a small fridge , a microwave and a sink a the bar.

Nancy and Bill were the true gem of our stay in Ft Davis. They are fully integrated into the community and a wealth of knowledge about the history of the entire area. Their B&B is extremely clean, lots of light, comfortable beds and beautiful kitchen/dining area. Nice piano, too!
5 on October 07, 2011
Nancy, We talked about the "puddle pads" that I make and the ladies neck ties. Please contact me if you are interested in me sending you some. I would like to send you a picture of the ties. We loved our stay and look forward to coming again. Love in Christ, Warren & Mary Ann Hart

Best time ever the staff and place was fantastic. I well we will stay there again.

It was such a treat to stay at Davis Mountains Inn. We were in the area for the Cyclefest bike ride, and Nancy and Bill were most helpful with a very early-morning DIY breakfast on Saturday. After the ride, we were able to relax on the back porch while watching a storm roll in - such a beautiful sight! The breakfast the next morning was excellent as well, complete with homemade bread. The heavenly smell of it wafted through the house as we awoke. We will return!
5 on September 22, 2011
We stayed in the Fisher Hill Suite for 5 days. It exceeded all our expectations. The grounds were so relaxing and the views were amazing. Nancy and Bill were there when we arrived and made us feel completely at home. In the mornings we were greeted by Angela who gave us so much usefull information along with a fabulous breakfast everyday! We wanted to relax and enjoy the sites. Before breakfast I especially enjoyed hot chocolate on the private porch. We are looking forward to returning. We also enjoyed going to the Drug Store (also owned by Bill and Nancy).

The Davis Mtns. Inn is a wonderful place to stay during your forays around the Ft. Davis, Marfa and Alpine triangle. Two of the suites are very large and the other rooms are comfortably sized. With six bedrooms sleeping up to 14, the Inn would be a good place for a gathering of family or friends. There are two living areas, one part of a two bedroom suite, and the main living room, a common area. The kitchen is also very large and in the common area. The Inn was in immaculate condition for our stay. The landscaped grounds in the back are lovely despite a very hard summer and the fires that surrounded the Inn only 5 months earlier. Take a look at their website. Unlike the websites of many other B&Bs and inns, their website photos accurately portray the accommodations. Two final points: 1. The room rate is a bargain. We stayed in the Sleeping Lion Suite and recommend it. It's huge. 2. The Inn is immediately adjacent to an RV park. This creates an unfortunate first impression when approaching the Inn. But the park is small and clean, and the seniors occupying the RVs didn't seem to be hard core, late night partiers as we never heard any noise.
5 on September 14, 2011
Beautiful place and excellent breakfast! We felt very welcome here. We would definitely stay here again!

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Davis Mountains Inn. Fort Davis was the most beautiful town compared to Marfa and Alpine that we visited, especially considering the mountain backdrop. The rooms were clean and were given a key for our to lock our belongings as we explored the area. The beds and especially the pillows were the best we had on our 6 day excursion through the area. The only drawback was that, in the Sawtooth Ridge Room, the shower in the bathroom was quite small and when you opened the door there was no way to prevent the showerhead from spraying water out onto the floor. The owners were very nice people and gave us great detailed information about the area as well as pleasant conversation. As for the breaskfast, this might have been the biggest disappointment. After spending $100 on a room, we were served only eggs, bacon, and coffee/juice. The bacon was overcooked for my tastes as well. I would have appreciated some toast/biscuits and maybe some potatos or hashbrowns. The inn itself was very pretty and had great views of the surrounding area. However, don't be misled by the pictures, because on the right side of the house is an RV park. Despite this, there was no noise or anything of the sort from it. I bring this up to merely point out that it's not as secluded as it looks. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. I'm not sure if I would return primarily because the breakfast is one of the primary reasons I stay at these places. For the price we paid I feel as though we could have found something better at the other places in Fort Davis.

Beautiful property with very clean rooms. Breakfast was good and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

The manager and staff were wonderful. The back yard was hard to leave. The house was amazing and well decorated. I felt safe there. I wished I had it for my back yard. The town was friendly although go with the idea of taking your time getting served at local cafes.

Absolutely no complaints. Extremely pleasant inn keeper and cook. The breakfasts were outstanding. I highly recommend the Inn

We've been coming to Fort Davis for years and only this past year parted from our routine to discover the Davis Mountain Inn. The hospitality of the owners, the service, the rooms and the great breakfast make this a delightful place to stay. We love being just outside of town for the views surrounding the house. It's great for a biking trip - easy access to good riding. We've been there twice now and will not go back to any of the other hotels if Davis Mountain Inn is available.
5 on July 10, 2011
This was the first time we had ever stayed at a bed and breakfast. We did not really know what the expect. We were totally blown away! Bill and Nancy made us feel like family, and we forgot we were staying at a Inn. The room was awesome, breakfast we great all three days.. Bill and Nacy also own the Drugstore in Ft Davis which also gets 5 stars for food and service.. We are already planning our next stay at our new vacation home in Ft Davis... :)
5 on July 07, 2011
Awesome Bed and Breakfast. The owners could not have been more helpful or pleasant. It was like being at home. Nice and comfy!
5 on July 05, 2011
Bill and Nancy made it a point to visit with us most mornings in their beautiful resort. Even when they were not there, Angela made us feel totally at home. We found the food at their "Drugstore" to be the best in town even though it is very reasonably priced. Our son-in-law chef compared it favorably to the Riata in Alpine and Maiya's in Marfa. But it was not until we checked out and headed back home that we found out how special Bill and Nancy really are. Our car broke down a couple of miles out of town. The tow truck could not accommodate all four of us so out of desperation we called Bill and Nancy. They not only rescued us from the side of the road, but they let us hang around the Drugstore until we found out that the car would take another day to repair. We stayed the night at their Drugstore and enjoyed their company even though they were hard pressed for time because of all the people pouring into town for the 4th. I would recommend Bill and Nancy to anyone headed to or through Ft. Davis.

My daughter and I stayed for four days and by the third day, we were family!! Bill and Nancy were like old friends, so friendly, so warm, so welcoming, so accomodating. The rooms were beautiful, so comfortable, homey, and I slept like a log every night. I even enjoyed an evening downstairs in my pajamas watching a movie wrapped up in a blanket, and even played the piano! Angela and Paige were so friendly and warm and also made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was over the top!! Thank you all so very much. I will be back!!

Our stay was pure pleasure. The great service started with the reservation process. She was able to accurately describe the inn,rooms and outdoor space, so we could choose the right accommadations for our stay.The inn was true value. The room was very large and quite comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful and different each of the 3 mornings we were guests. The innkeepers, Bill and Nancy, along with Angela the housekeeper added so much to our stay. Their knowledge of local points of interest enhanced our experience. It's rare to find innkeepers with so much love for what they do. We have stayed at many B&Bs and this was one of the best.

Bill, Nancy, and Angela were warm, friendly, and fabulous hosts. Having breakfast with them each morning added to our experience and allowed us to learn so much about Fort Davis and the surrounding communities. The house was immaculate, and the outdoor areas were beautiful. We are already planning our next visit.

I just can't say enough positive things about the Davis Mountains Inn. The wife and I went back to Fort Davis, the town where we grew up, to attend our 25 year Class Reunion. The owners allowed us to use the Inn as our 'Head Quarters'. It was outstanding and a very memorable experience.

I had a thoroughly delightful visit! The room was perfectly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was different everyday – all of it delicious. The Inn is in a great central location for many sites and activities – McDonald Observatory, Davis Mtn State Park, Ft Davis, CDRI, several scenic routes, Alpine, Marfa, etc. Both front and back decks have great views of the night sky. The Innkeepers Holly and Nancy were very friendly and a joy to share stories with over breakfast! I especially enjoyed the ‘sneak peek’ of the new gallery. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We arrived only 3 days after a fire had burned through the area leaving the property green in a sea of black. This probably accounted for most of the rough edges. The breakfast was outstanding but the recommendation for dinner was average at best.

We stayed at Davis Mountain Inn the night of the Mumford & Sons concert in Marfa. It was an amazing experience. The service is spectacular. The owners were very hospitable and enjoyable to talk with. Great overall value!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Davis Mountains Inn. Bill and Nancy are great hosts and made us feel welcome in their home. Our room was clean and comfortable and the house was cozy. We appreciated a home-cooked breakfast instead of the breakfast vouchers that are so common these days. We would definitely stay here again!

Upon arrival in this quaint West Texas town, I was immediately impressed by the friendliness of everyone we met. The folks at the Davis Mountains Inn were there for our arrival, showed us our gorgeous suite, and oriented us to the house and the area. Everything was incredibly clean and cared for, the property is a lovely place to relax. Angela cooked a tasty, and unique, breakfast every day and those cookies in the afternoon were more than a temptation! From the moment we booked our reservation, through to our departure, every exchange was friendly, caring, and efficient. We will return!

The place extremely nice. Amenities aplenty. Bill and Nancy are very friendly and know the area well. Great for visitors. We had a great honeymoon experience in the Slepping Lion Suite, and would recommend the Davis Mountains Inn to ANYONE passing through the Ft. Davis area! Thank you and we want to return because the country, hospitality, and friendliness of the area, and TDMI is just so comforting! Love the floats at the drug store too!!!

Oasis of West Texas. Oh so Beautiful! Quiet, comfortable, beautiful, huge bathroom with jetted tub and stone shower, private entry, only to awake to a gorgeous sunrise and a wonderful breakfast. The Davis's and Angela were so warm and friendly. We left relaxed, refreshed and not wanting to leave. We will be back for sure!!!!

This Davis mountains in was a welcome respite after camping in the Big Bend wilderness for four days. Lovely rooms, charming hosts, peace and quiet, and a short bike ride from the quaint Fort Davis downtown. We look forward to visiting again!

I thought it strange for a B&B that the owners never showed (in fairness they were working on a new business, but they did not live at the house). a very nice lady fixed breakfast, but while adequate it was not very good. Except the home made bread which was wonderful. The whole place needed a bit of cleaning and sprucing. And the upstairs bedrooms were very inadequate as far as natural light. However, I am not complaining. It was afine place to be for a couple of nights, and I enjoyed it.

We enjoyed our one night stay. The innkeepers were very nice and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I spent our first anniversary at the Davis Mountains Inn and had the most relaxing, comfortable vacation we could have hoped for! Bill and Nancy truly made us feel right at home. We loved our morning chats over breakfast (which was always delicious!) and their abundance of suggestions for sites to hit around town. The room was spacious, clean, and extremely comfortable - we felt like it was our home away from home. Absolutely can't wait to come back with the family!
We very much enjoyed you both. Remember we have a job for you if you want to live in the country! Blessings.

Of the Pollocks, 17 members came from far distances to attend the Bencomo wedding and stayed at the Inn. It was indeed the "ultimate experience in B&Bs." We found our hosts welcoming the family, beautiful setting and everything promised on website. Lovely weekend! Thank you Nancy & Bill! Bobbie Mueller

We had a wonderful time staying at the bed and breakfast. It was a quiet getaway from all of the demands of daily life. We especially enjoyed walking down the road to take pictures of the sunset both evenings. Bill and Nancy were amazing! They both are very friendly and we enjoyed sitting at the table sharing stories and laughing. We would gladly go again and would encourage anyone else who just needs a calm, quiet retreat to go there also. It was one of the best weekends that we have had in a long time.

We stayed at the Inn while visiting the McDonald Observatory: great hospitality, great advice, and great location. A perfect little vacation.

Had a great time, loved visiting with Bill and Nancy. Good breakfast and a really great location. Will visit again in the fall, before winter's freeze has set in. Thanks to the Davis's for a great time!

Location is convenient but not overly picturesque as it is adjacent to a vacant commercial property and operating RV park. House is clean and comfortable.

My husband and I stayed at the Davis Mountain Inn for our anniversary and it was an amazing experience. We were a little nervous since this was our first time at a B&B, but Bill and Nancy made us feel right at home. They were perfectly gracious hosts and are the epitome of southern hospitality. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations over breakfast, much more than I ever anticipated. I cannot wait to return and have already recommended this place to several of our friends. Make sure you ask Nancy to play the piano for you - she is amazing!!!!

We were a military couple moving from one assignment to the next. Davis Inn was our pitstop enroute, but felt like a mini honeymoon! The Lion suite was fabulous! They even accommodated my special dietary needs (as requested when reservation was made). Breakfast the next morning was soooo yummy! Best of all is the great conversation with Bill & Nancy - they are genuinely nice people -- we felt (and hugged) like old friends by the time we departed. We cannot wait to return -- with our children too!

A great place to stay. Very affordable and the owners were great! Loved your garden in the backyard, got some great butterfly pictures. We will definitely be staying there again! Carol Ramirez Midland Texas

The inn is in a beautiful setting, the hosts and the house are charming. The garden is still a work in progress, but it will be really inviting. The room we stayed in could use some storage, like a small piece with drawers, and better lighting in the suite's sitting area. All in all we were quite satisfied.

This was our first stay at a B & B and we are already planning our next trip back. Bill and Nancy are great host. Can't wait to get back.

My wife and I were married at the Davis Mountains Inn in October 2010 - the first wedding the inn had hosted. Bill and Nancy, the proprietors, rushed to finish the little wedding spot they were building, complete with a brook, flowers, benches and a fire pit. It was beautiful. I can't say enough about Bill and Nancy's hospitality - we've never felt more welcome at any place we've ever stayed ... and I doubt we ever will again. They are the warmest hosts you can imagine. And they were incredibly kind to our three kids, ages 8-12, pulling out the croquet set and other games for them to play. They also suggested a couple of local attractions that we all loved. Last but certainly not least, they cooked some of the best breakfasts we've ever had. They were both hardy and healthy. My wife and I can't wait to go back in the spring and ride our bikes around Fort Davis and the mountains. If you're visiting Fort Davis, you could not hope to stay in a nicer place.
Thanks for letting us share in your very special day. What a terrific family. Truly the pleasure was all ours. Can't wait to see some photos.

This is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Very quiet, great views of the sunrise/sunset, dark skies for stargazing and three of the friendliest cats you'd ever want to meet!

Davis Mountain Inns was beautiful. The owners and friends were lovely and friendly. The in room two person jacuzzi tub was delightful. The only thing that could be changed was the hand held showerhead needed to be unclogged,not too bad of a down fall. A mini fridge for late night drinks and snacks would be good. We will return and stay 2 nights instead of just one so we can take in all of the local flavors.
Thank you for letting us know about the shower head. The mini fridge idea is great. We will pick one up at our earliest convenience since there is plenty of space in that room. Thanks for the suggestions and yes, absolutely, you need to come spend longer next time.

We had a fantastic stay. We stayed in the Sleeping Lion suite. The room was quaint and spacious, the bed was fantastic and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in other then our own. The bathroom was HUGE and the shower and jacuzzi tub dreamy. The breakfast was punctual, and hot every morning, the scrambled eggs to die for. Our stay was soooo relaxing and each day envigorating. We could not have asked for a better place to have stayed. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
4.6 on August 26, 2010
Loved this B&B! We found sharing the upstairs bathroom with another room to be a little awkward, so we would book a different room next time. However, if a family needs to book two rooms, the upstairs would be perfect. Book in advance - seems to be popular! If we are ever going to be in the Fort Davis, Marfa, Alpine area again, we will definitely stay at the Davis Mountains Inn.

If you want to make the world go away, get to this place. I had to decide whether to retreat to my amazingly comfortable room or enjoy engaging conversation in the kitchen. Maybe it was because we were exhausted and stressed when we arrived, but the place almost has a healing touch. I would definitely stay here again. Radical Hopitality!!!!

My husband and I were on vacation, destination New Mexico but due to extremely bad weather and thunderstorms during July 4th, 2010 we made last minute changes to our plans. We searched the internet and headed back to Texas to check out the Fort Davis Mountains, the McDonald Observatory and other local attractions and also came across Davis Mountains Inn. I quickly made a reservation and to my surprise found out this was a bed and breakfast. This was the first time we'd ever been to a bed and breakfast and it was perfect. We were able to celebrated our 32 years of marriage at this quiet and peacefully serene home. I remember Nancy the Innkeeper asking what made us decide on this location and I told her it was her website indicating," that I could sit on the porch and stare at the mountains." We were able to spend some time on that porch overlooking the Davis Mountains which were breathtakingly beautiful as well as our entire visit at the Inn.

What makes this Bed & Breakfast so nice is the people that run it. They care about your stay and go out of their way to make you feel at home. I would love to visit again. Highly recommended!

Nancy couldn't have been more accomodating. I felt more like I was at home than at an inn. I would recommend staying here to any and everyone.

Davis Mountains Inn was one of the best bed and breakfast places ever! The Fisher Hill Suite was beautifully decorated, comfortable and inviting for two couples. Bill and Nancy truly give their guests Southern hospitality in every way and every morning you will be served the most delicious breakfast ever, especially the pancakes. We look forward to returning to the Davis Mountains Inn and are telling our friends to come with us.

From the moment we got there we where in love with this place. It was so nice and cozy and the owner's where so wonderful. I have stayed at a few other places in Ft. Davis, but will stay here from now on... Love, love, love this place!!!!!!

We recently visited Ft. Davis, and looked for a spot to stay in which we had not stayed at before. This inn was the former residence of the owner of "POPS GRILL" and it is a beautiful house. The Breakfast is superb. The grounds need attention, and the innkeepers were occupied elsewhere. We chose not to use the grounds for a picnic we had planned, and think that the price of the place does not equal the service we got. The innkeepers need to remember that repairs should not be done while the inn is occupied, guests go to other places to "get away".
I am so very sorry that your experience at the Inn did not meet your expectations. We have lived in Fort Davis for 20 years and this has been the coldest winter that we have had, therefore in March the lawns definitely were not yet green and the trees had not leafed out. Last week, I did get my spring planting done and the lawns and trees are coming right along with Springtime. Some repairs must be done when the Inn is rented, however, we do try to respect our guests rest and perform the "extras" when our guests are off premises. Hopefully, you will have a better experience on your next visit with us.

This home was our favorite SPOT during the 7 day, six night spring break vacation visiting beautiful West Texas & Hill County. The home was updated, large rooms, nice tiled bathrooms, SUPER clean! And the BED was the most comfortable-awesome mattress, down comforters, egyptian cotton sheets-SO SOFT-WOW-the Best rest we had on the road! We felt right at home and enjoyed the company tremendously. I highly recommend this new Inn for one and all traveling in the area!
Thank you very much for the nice review. It truly is our goal to offer comfort for our travelers. We very much enjoyed having you as our guests. Please come again!

We just spent a wonderful night at the Davis Mountains Inn. Nancy warmly welcomed us upon arrival and made us feel right at home. Everything was very clean and the decor was tasteful, clean, modern, and welcoming. The room was lovely, and there were a few information packets already in the room to help us enjoy the most of Fort Davis. The bed was incredibly comfortable and eased us into sleep. Breakfast included some of the best pancakes we have ever had, and it was a pleasure to sit and chat with Nancy, Bill, and the other guests. Nancy and Bill are gracious hosts and are a wealth of information for things to do in Fort Davis. We would love to visit again, and will certainly recommend it to friends and family!
Thank you for reviewing the Davis Mountains Inn. We have met THE NICEST people in this B & B venture. Thank you also for the recommendation, please do come again.

Davis Mountains Inn is a fabulous bed and breakfast. It is clean, large, new, quiet, easy to get to, and comfortable. Bill and Nancy Davis are wonderful innkeepers. They catered to our every need and the home made breakfast delicious. The conversation with them was fun, engaging, and enlightening. Our stay at the Davis Mountains Inn was truly a high point of our trip to West Texas.

This was the first time my boyfriend and I had the chance to experience a bed and breakfast. We were very impressed with the house layout and service. Justin was very helpful and welcoming. We plan on going back with some friends in the future! A great place to relax and take in the beautiful landscapes! It felt like we were visiting with family!
Thank you for your kind words. We really enjoyed getting to know you. Please tell your friends and come back and see us. Remember that you get a 10% discount as a return visitor! Blessings on you.

The Davis Mountains Inn was overall an incredibly good experience. The Innkeepers were so kind, helpful and informative. The fact that we were able to take pottery lessons while we were visiting was a GREAT added bonus. I honestly can't think of anything that would have made our visit to the Davis Mountains Inn any more enjoyable than it was.
What a fun day of creating! Thank you for submitting your review of the Inn and the services that we offer. We want you to come back again.

Most enjoyable stay. Very beautiful, peaceful place on the outskirts of town. Warm, family atmosphere made us feel comfortable and so welcome. The beds are heavenly! Breakfast was excellant and homemade goodies were there around the clock. We will be back!
Thank you for the excellent review of the Davis Mountains Inn. We hope to have you return for a visit. More goodies await!
