A charming place with a super friendly staff. It's actually nicer and more picturesque than it appears in the photos. We stayed three nights, and each breakfast was different and absolutely delicious. And don't miss the free yummy treats in the lobby every day!

This is a bed and breakfast, the oldest inn in West Texas. David, the proprietor, was friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was a great start to our day. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Fort Davis, and would stay there again if we went out that way.

We booked a suite and a room at Veranda Historic Inn because we were attending a Star Party @ McDonald Observatory. While the Inn is not fully historic in terms of furnishings and decor there are lots of historic aspects and many of the furnishings were very historic (while not period specific). The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and... More

My wife and I have stayed twice at this historic Fort Davis inn. We have found it a pleasant and relaxed place to stay. This time, we stayed in the carriage house behind the inn, and it was a true home away from home. The owners are casual, welcoming and helpful. The members of the hotel staff, especially the breakfast... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Veranda- it is such a pleasant, peaceful place. We felt very well looked after and comfortable. The breakfasts were great, tea and coffee available at all times, and it was a pleasure to meet the other guests. There is plenty to do in the area and David was helpful in suggesting... More

We stayed here back in April 2015. It's a quiet little B&B in a quiet little town, but central to Marfa, Alpine, the McDonald Observatory and activity around Fort Davis, of course. The owner was most helpful helping us get a room even though we were a walk in (walk-in's aren't usually accepted). Remember, this is an old hotel with... More

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.
