We stayed at The Veranda only one night as we were on our way to Big Bend National Park. It is very near Fort Davis, which you can tour if you wish. It is also near the road leading up into The Davis Mountains and the McDonald Observatory, where we attended a Star Party one evening (I highly recommend that... More

We loved everything about this inn. Our room was charming and spacious. There was a complimentary breakfast that was delicious. The grounds are beautiful. The mattresses were very comfortable. There is a Keurig coffee pot and tea available any time, plus complimentary bottles of water.

We were only here one night but loved our short stay. The room was nice and big. Comfortable beds, nice unique antique-y furnishings and objects. The bathroom was a little quirky and awkward, but chalk it up to character. Plenty of hot water and clean towels. We were in room 11 which was off in the back. Great to be... More

We stayed here in one of the large and well-appointed rooms. The breakfast was not up to the usual B&B standards - it was just OK. I thought the price at $125 plus tax was on the high side for what was offered in this very small town.

Pros: Fine victorian B&B in a good location within walking distance of other restaurants, etc; great breakfast Cons: Its a B&B. Without A/C on a hot day and there are many in West Texas, could get pretty hot.

We enjoyed our night in Ft Davis, in large part because of our stay at the Veranda. The owner, David, was welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean, though it could use a coat of paint and a piece of art or two on the walls. The building and furniture is great - lovely antiques that legitimise how long people... More

We had originally booked the Garden cottage but when we arrived and saw the inside rooms we asked to change. They were a bit more roomy, and we liked the feeling of being at home in the lovely main house. David, the proprietor, very nicely made the change and we settled in. We caught up on American Idol in the... More

Old, historic, rustic and well managed by David and his staff. We really enjoyed our stay in Fort Davis and the Veranda Historic Inn. The floors creak, the doors creak, yet the room was very spacious with a large bathroom. Breakfast is out of this world. Chef is a very conversational German lady who knows how to cook. Lots of...

We stayed at this B&B as we drove through west Texas. We let the owners know that we were running a bit late, so they left our checkin information handy. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, which is separate from the main inn and has a lovely view of the garden and the Davis Mountains. We sat on our porch... More

We, unlike the majority of reviewers, found The Veranda quite a disappointment. We were a group of 4: a couple and two single people. The singles stayed in the room 5 and the Garden Cottage respectively while the couple stayed in the Carriage House. Room 5 was a nice room but going out the back door to the Garden Cottage... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Veranda. I feel that I must respond to several inaccurate comments in your review. As to the quality of the breakfast, we served a buffet all three days of your visit, with different entrees featured daily which have always been popular – I always check with everyone at... More
