The Indian Lodge is the best kept secret in the Davis Mountains! It is located in the Davis Mountains State Park with wonderful landscape and views of the Davis Mountains. The lodge dates back to the CCC, who built the original section of the lodge. It is a state of the art hotel with large rooms, nice pool, and hot... More

Beautiful room with chairs to read and great view of park. Clean and spacious. Took a bit to get hot water, but plenty once heated up! Restaurant on-site and easy access to hiking, national historic site, and observatory.

We stayed here in order to be close to McDonald Observatory for a star party. The rooms and bathrooms are good-sized and clean. Depending on which way your room faces, you could have an amazing view of the mountains. We sat outside our room in the morning and watched the sunrise over the mountains. We also enjoyed a dip in...

We stayed in a junior suite (#119) for 2 nights. In general, this is a wonderful base camp to explore the area - easy drive to Marfa, Fort Davis, McDonald Observatory, Scenic Drives, etc. About the room: two rooms with a door between (great for putting our toddler to sleep on the fold out couch; each room was small, but...

This was our second time to stay at IL and it is just a price performer. The location is perfect for the start of a west Texas vaca. I recommend staying here for two nights and exploring the hiking, Balmorhea, McDonald Observatory Star Party and then move on towards Big Bend. The rooms in the historic section are super cool...

What a treasure this place is! Set back in the mountains, nestled in the hills, this place is just beautiful to look at and was so enjoyable to stay in. We were just there for one night but would love to go back. The room was clean, comfortable and had a terrific view of the hills. The staff were friendly... More

We only could get one night, the hotel was fully booked. We loved the room from the moment we entered it. Three windows in two directions, massive wooden furniture, fireplace from old times, quiet AC or heating system and refuge ambience. The room was a perfect blend of modern amenities in bathroom and rustic, seldom seen furniture. The bathroom seems... More

Our room in the historic portion of the lodge was beautiful and cozy despite the frosty weather outside. A special treat was enjoying the fires in the lobby area of the lodge. On our last day at the Indian Lodge we hiked up the hill side immediately behind the lodge and saw the Aoudad sheep hanging out, watching us!

Although I have lived in Texas over 60 years, I had not been to the Davis Mountains and was pleasantly surprised at these beautiful mountains in Texas. Even more impressive was the Indian Lodge inside Fort Davis State Park, which provided us with all the needed amenities inside a State park. Our room had 2 queen beds, a sitting area... More

Stayed here one night on a visit to the observatory. The adobe style buildings set against the backdrop of the Davis Mountains State Park was very scenic. It was even more picturesque when huge snowflakes started falling after we checked into our room on Dec 27. Stayed in room 220 which is a two queen unit. The room was spacious... More
