Pleasant, friendly, and has character! Would stay here again. Owners are friendly and informative. Atmosphere is relaxing and we enjoyed the desert mountain air. Great escape from city life. McDonald observatory 20 min drive, fantastic natural springs swimming hole up the road in Balmorhea, TX. Great breakfast and enjoyed visiting with the other guests. Main Street is 50 yards from...

Old, unassuming adobe exterior with large, very well decorated suite/room. Tasty breakfast with large portions. Excellent coffee. Also appreciated complimentary bottled water and k-cup all day coffee and tea. Hospitable, helpful, positive and friendly host. (Not too intrusive either which is always good.) Comfortable lounge with Directv. Large garden. Quiet area. Clean. Good value and fair pricing. Small issues: Shower... More

This B & B is a quiet, comfortable place to rejuvenate nestled in the West Texas mountains. You are no more than 30 minutes from Alpine, Marfa or the McDonald Observatory. You can be on the go or relax on the front porch, in the common room or in the garden area. Dave, the proprietor, was very friendly and informative.

Very happy with our accommodations. Historic hotel now B&B with lovely antique furnishings. The owner and staff were very knowledgable about the town and surrounding attractions. We stayed 3 nights and were very happy with our visit.

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
