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!

This was our first stay in a B&B and we look forward to a return trip. The hosts were warm and welcoming and our room and adjoining bath were charming and clean and very comfortable. The breakfast meal was delicious and nobody could finish all that great food! We met lovely and interesting guests. It was quiet and private and exceeded our expectations.

My partner & I stayed here for a night. The room was very nice looking and had plenty of character. Which is why one stays at a B&B, right? Plenty of extra quilts for the cold night air, but I guess the house is insulated so well that the temperature indoors was perfect without any cooling or heating. The hosts were pleasant company over breakfast. (Which was served on the dot; that's really my only nit: some flexibility there would have suited my morning habits.) The B&B is at the edge of town with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The neighbourhood is pretty to walk in but unlit so do your walking during the day: it's pitch black at night. If we'd stayed for another night, we would have enjoyed sitting out in the large yard with the house.

From the beautiful grounds to the superb hospitality of the owners, the thick white bath towels, and the sense of historical presence, the Old Schoolhouse B & B is the most delightful and comfortable B & B I've ever experienced. It would make Ft. Davis a wonderful destination ll by itself. I can't recommend it highly enough.
We're delighted that he hit all the marks with you. That's our goal. Please come back anytime you're out our way.

The Old Schoolhouse was a wonderful stay in the small town of Fort Davis. A beautifully kept home and property, it was a serene and friendly place to stay. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with Steve and Carla, and liked the unusual breakfast options. Brian Bourgeois

Our night in the 'riting room was comfortable & enjoyable. Though the room was not large it was tastefully decorated. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast out on the deck in the lovely backyard. Our host & hostess were pleasant to visit with & informative about the area.
