Very nice stay

Very clean, well kept, and charming. We had a brief, one night stay. We would definitely stay there again next time we visit Fort Davis.

B&B in far west Texas

We stayed at the Davis Mountain Inn during Spring Break (March 2017). The home was beautiful and very conveniently located to many destinations and activities. Our room and connected bathroom were clean and had what we needed (even shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and a hair dryer). Breakfast was served each day between 8:00-9:00. There was always a variety to choose from including yogurt, fruit, toast, jellies, and hot choices (eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits/pancakes). Checking in and out was very convenient. Room assignments and keys were left on the foyer table. Instructions for locating rooms were easy to understand and rooms were easily located. There were always fresh baked cookies available in the kitchen for guests as well as hot tea, cocoa and coffee.

We stayed in the Sleeping Lion room. It was comfortable, just the right size, and OMG, the bathroom is to die for!! The snacks in the afternoon hit the spot after hiking at Fort Davis, and the breakfasts are magnificent. Very quiet, relaxing, and we cannot wait to go back. If you're heading to Fort Davis region of Texas, this is THE place to check out!!

Beautiful mountain view

This was our second stay at Davis Mountains Inn. It is very convenient to local sites of interest. The breakfasts are wonderful and the ladies who are the caretakers and cooks make you feel at home. They are very welcoming and warm. I would recommend this B&B to everyone.

Loved it

We did not have on site dining at our location, but did have a fully equipped kitchen. Our stay was quiet and relaxing, which is just what was needed! We would reccommend!

They have cookies

The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing. And, they had an afternoon snack.

great breakfasts

The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was surprisingly good. There were cookies, banana nut bread, and lemon bread as afternoon snacks the three afternoons we were there. I'd say it's 'THE' place to stay in Ft Davis.
