We launched our Big Bend road trip at the Gage, and for an authentic restoration of an old TX hotel, I haven't experienced better. We had one room (with bath) in the original hotel that looked so authentic, we expected Miss Kitty from "Gunsmoke" might be lounging on the bed. We had another room in the adobe annex -- spacious and charming -- with a kiva corner fireplace, lantilla thatched ceiling and chaps on the wall. The bartender told us the owner had bought out a museum in WY with some 200 pieces, which are presented dramatically around the property. Don't miss the taxidermy lurking in every room -- like the mountain lion in the front meeting room and, of course, the giant white buffalo head in the saloon. Hats off to the owner for having preserved and restored this gem of the good old days when steam engines stopped here for water. Real time travel!
