About the innkeepers

Our family enjoys unique small towns such as Comfort and Marfa. Comfort has small town charm you can't help but enjoy visiting. From the Friday evening dominoes game on the street corner to gourmet cuisine to a weaving class to sampling the local wine...what's not to love! As for the hotel the structural beauty and charm is what lead the Treusdell family to purchase it in June of 2015. We vow to keep the historic aspect of the hotel even with the addition of modern features.
