Such a great gem in the desert. Clean, quiet and perfect for a getaway! Cabin was immaculate and comfortable. Recommend for a family vacation or romantic jaunt. Odd number cabins overlook the uninterrupted desert and mountains. Amazing!

We had great correspondence with the owners before we stayed for 1 night. We were booked into the star party at the Mcdonald Observatory and didn't arrive at the Lodge until about 9:30. As promised there was info on the office door telling us which cabin we had. A very small point was that the porch light was not left... More

Cabin was very clean and simple with comfortable beds and standard amenities; heater kept the place warm enough, though took a while to warm up during the bad cold snap while we were there. Best...

Scott & Jenny are wonderful and well informed hosts to this great Retreat in the Davis Mountains! Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you need except a hair dryer. Homemade breakfast starts your day perfectly...so many things to do in the area or just kick back and enjoy soaking in the beauty of this West Texas town and... More
