Last week, I embarked on a West Texas adventure with some girlfriends during Viva Big Bend Music Festival. This was my second time in the region and wanted to try lodging options other than hotels. I was SO IMPRESSED with Indian Lodge! Check in was a breeze then we walked to our room, adorable and perfectly equipped. Two beds: queen... More

We weren't sure we were taking a summer vacation this year so we booked very late in the season. For a family of 5 there were only three rooms left so we took what we could get. We had a double queen with a rollaway ($10/night extra). I have to say, we fit just fine. It was a decent sized... More

This was an amazing retreat up in the mountains. We went to Fort Davis for star gazing at the McDonald Observatory and it was absolutely amazing. This lodge was about 10 miles from the observatory. The rooms are very well kept and very clean. The grounds are very nice. The swimming pool was well kept. The restaurant at the lodge... More

Wife and I took a last minute weekend getaway to Fort Davis, our first trip here, and will not be our last. We had no reservations and were surprised they actually had a vacancy. Nice rustic place, great room, we had room 114 in the historic section. We thought it was a great price as well, compared to big city... More

Indian Lodge is like stepping back into the past of the West. The setting is spectacular; the historical aspects interesting; the rooms neat and clean. We looked out our window and saw a beautiful DOUBLE rainbow arcing across the valley. Quiet, nice pool, good hiking, FUN!

The hotel itself is nice. It's run by the state so making a reservation is only by phone Monday through Friday. That's a pain in the butt for last minute. Also the restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday. That's ok, it's not very good anyway. Now that all of that is said the hotel and rooms are clean and... More

We loved our stay at Indian Lodge. The price we paid for the room can't be beat and we enjoyed friendly service, a clean room and beautiful scenery! We can't wait to go back. One of the prettiest spots in Texas for sure! There is a restaurant at the lodge and fun places to eat in town too. A must!

Be sure to book early and request an original CCC room, although all of the lodeg's room are very spacious. No mini bar / refrig (who cares), comfortable beds, very nice Texas park service staff, including naturalist /historian whose two lectures we sat through. The lodge public rooms are architectural delights.

Tucked away in the spectacular, this lodge features breathtaking views, clean and comfortable rooms, and stunning architecture. Built during the depression by the CCC, the thick adobe walls, Pueblo revival structure, and the quirky mission style furniture feel much more like a Santa Fe resort than a West Texas locale. The ideal location offers a great headquarters for numerous day... More
