This was our second stay at the Veranda. A excellent way to start a 8-day Big Bend road trip. Comfort and West Texas hospitality are the watchwords here. LARGE rooms with an nice mix of antiques make for a restful stay. Eleanor's tasty breakfasts make you wish you could stay for just one more! The must be the place you... More

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Cottage of the Veranda. We arrived just after midnight and didn't have any trouble finding the main building to pickup our welcome letter, which directed us to the cottage. We stayed there three nights and loved the privacy of the cottage as well as the location on the gardens. It was the... More

We found this place on the Internet after finding the nearby Indian Lodge fully booked. Glad we found it. Charming place. Many of the original 1880's features are still there - doors, hardware, floors, exterior look. But the bed was comfortable (firm) and the bathroom and bedroom were spotless. I will say that everything seems a bit dated but not... More

Great amenities, friendly staff, and yummy breakfast. Despite the age of this location (1800s), the quality of the rooms, furniture, and overall location has been well preserved. The rooms are spacious and it's very quite (3 rooms on my hall! Much better than a busy hotel). Loved this one-of-a-kind, vintage BNB.

We recently stayed at the Veranda in Fort Davis. Our intent was to attend the star party at the McDonald Observatory. Arriving late at night our host accommodated our needs and left a key and instructions for us. Quickly unloading and running off to the observatory after 9 PM we arrived before 10 and found that the clouds were clearing!... More

The Veranda Inn is a cute old fashioned home style B&B. The rooms are filled with older styles of furniture though the walls were quite bare and could use more artwork perhaps. Two hummingbird feeders give one occasional views of the nature around. We emailed the staff trying to get clarifications on how to check in as we were going... More

We are truly sorry that his guest was not satisfied with our service. In all of my years of inn keeping, I have never asked a guest to leave the inn until encountering this person. He simply would not take "yes" for an answer and continued to badger me and my staff about our not answering the phone on the... More

This building is over a hundred years old. You must keep that in mind when booking this inn. The staff was very nice, even sending us off with a bag of sweets. They could use a better shower rod in the bath room. Ours was very rusty and the shower curtain had pink mold at the bottom. It would be... More

We are glad that the guest enjoyed their stay overall and received excellent service from our staff. I was concerned to learn that you found the room less than clean. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the inn and take complaints seriously. I personally inspected the shower on your suite and found that the rod is a little rusty... More

Beautiful for those who love historic places. Extremely clean with great high ceilings, wood floors, antiques in room. The owners are wonderful and a very restful place to stay. Be advised there are no TV's in the rooms but there is one in the common den.

Great big old room with high ceiling, creaky wooden floors, with modern bath, in room wifi, but TV only in the group room. Cookies waiting in the lobby upon arrival. Delightful place. Dave is a most gracious host, who clearly delights in living away from the big city stresses he dealt with until just a few years ago. Great breakfasts... More

The city is a very comfortable place. The Inn was hospitable and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again. The small home town atmosphere and the folksie relationship with staff and other guests was enjo0yable.
