Great getaway

4.6 on April 25, 2015

We stayed in the garden cottage. It is small but comfortable. We enjoyed the privacy and listing to the doves. The staff is top notch, They only serve breakfast but it was excelent every day. We saw some other rooms that were large and well appointed but we really enjoyed the garden cottage for it's privacy. We spent three full days there and found pleanty in the area to keep us busy. The wild flowers were worth the trip.

Veranda Historic Inn - a piece of heaven in Ft. Davis

Want to visit Ft. Davis? You must make a stay at the Veranda Historic Inn part of your experience! David and his staff will make your stay one of the best parts of your trip. The food was excellent, the rooms were so comfortable and cozy. They even made us a cheese/appetizer and dessert feast on Thanksgiving evening, knowing that we wouldn't be able to find anything open around town that night. Their thoughtfulness and attention to detail puts Veranda Historic Inn at the top of our list for places to stay in the future!

The most wonderful place to stay while in West Texas. My husband and I stayed five nights and were absolutely thrilled. The room was beautiful, very large, clean and the antiques were breathtaking. The grounds were beautiful. Best of all, Kathie Woods, the inn keeper/owner, was wonderful in every way. The food each morning was delicous and stuck to our ribs. We were rarely hungry for lunch. A great value that will not disappoint. We cannot recommend this inn enough! A great, great value!

Breakfast at The Veranda

4.0 on February 26, 2008

We have stayed at The Veranda in Fort Davis 4 times. Although we enjoy the accommodations, the breakfast is skimpy in terms of portions compared to the many B&B's we have stayed at. It would be nice to have a choice of non-sweet pastry instead of very sweet.

I stayed with a friend october 12, at the veranda, had a very nice room, the owner made dinner reservations for us, which was a perfect choice , the room was very pleasant with high ceilings, there was a soaking bathtub in the bathroom that was very nice and there was an abundance of hot water. the breakfast was outstanding. I would definitely stay there again bob
