Excellent! Great location just a block off the main street in Fort Davis. Easy walk to the Limpia hotel and other nearby attractions. Proprietor is hands-on - checked us in, put out breakfast both mornings, even carved the Thanksgiving turkey at the Limpia, which he also owns. Breakfast served every morning near a large dining table great for meeting other... More

Despite ithe 100+ year building, the Veranda has the modern conveniences that you want. Spotless bathrooms with plenty of hot water, hotel-wide wireless, and coffee/tea/chocolate 24/7. Breakfast is spectacular. Great central location for touring Fort Davis. We walked to nearly everywhere in town. If you can live without cable TV in your room, this is the place to stay!.

Love this B&B. The Veranda Inn is adorable. We visited Fort Davis to attend a star party at the McDonald Observatory and didn't want to camp or stay in a rustic lodge. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Our "suite" had two bedrooms, a bathroom and tiny sitting room. It worked perfectly for three ladies traveling together. Breakfast was... More

Quiet, roomy, comfortable, and charming. We stayed overnight while visiting the McDonald Observatory, also in the Davis mountains. Go for the star party and the genteel rural atmosphere. If you can't live without cable TV in your room, look for something else.

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

David S, Owner at VERANDA HISTORIC INN, responded to this review

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
