Nestled at the foot of Sleeping Lion Mountain, this historic adobe home is a true lesson in West Texas Hospitality. The perfect mix of old-time tranquility and modern comfort, the Old Schoolhouse Bed & Breakfast is the ideal escape for any guest. Whether its business or pleasure that brings you to Fort Davis, let the Old Schoolhouse show you why you should stick around! Built in 1904, the spacious adobe building served as the schoolhouse for the children of Fort Davis until the 1930s. Over the century, the building has gone through several renovations, including the addition and removal of different wings. The most recent renovations have brought the historic structure up to date with completely modern electrical and plumbing systems. But the 22-inch-thick adobe walls, bead board paneling, and ceiling-high windows still convey the traditional beauty and soundness of the original construction. Fort Davis boasts a wide array of attractions and activities for visitors. Whether you're an amateur astronomer, a nature lover, a history buff, a shopper, a cyclist, or a bird lover - there's something here for you!

In April we enjoyed a stay at the Old Schoolhouse B&B. The web site pictures accurately convey how it is set in the middle of a large inviting yard dotted with pecan trees. The Kennedys were gracious and interesting hosts who made a point of talking with us each morning (which we really appreciated). Breakfasts were great and nicely varied. We stayed in the large, high-ceilinged Reading Room. It has a private entrance and elevated outdoor sitting area. The sitting area looks out at the gravel parking area (not a problem) and spacious yard. We had great weather and loved sitting outside at the end of the day with our binoculars and bird watching from comfortable chairs. We peeked into the other room when it was empty and it would have been very comfortable also. We went to a star party at the McDonald observatory, easily accessed by good highway, and highly recommend that experience in this dark sky area. The Fort Davis area itself is wild and scenic and well worth days of exploration.

We stayed at the Old Schoolhouse B&B in early January 2014. It was a great experience. It was super cold out, but the inn was cozy. The decor was very old Texas which made it feel very authentic. The new R&R suite we stayed in had a private bath and study area. It was a great value. The owners were very kind and made a great breakfast for us. If you are in the area stay here!
Well, as the first guest in our newly formed R&R suite, we are glad to hear that it was a good experience. We feel this new configuration will allow people more room to spread out and relax. And the private bath should be helpful as well. Thanks for taking the time to post, and please come back.
