Tranquility in beautiful Ft. Davis

3.4 on March 24, 2015

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


It was great!

5 on March 15, 2015

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.


Very enjoyable experience!

Wonderful hospitality, good food, very comfortable accommodations.


AWESOME!

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!


What a Gem in a Very Isolated Area

5 on January 13, 2015

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.

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...


Dark Skies in Fort Davis

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.


Superb in Every Way

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


Still loving the place

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.
