Best bang for the buck. Jenny and her husband are gems.We are already planning on going next year! The cabins are modest but comfortable. The beds were great, slept like are rock with the windows opens. The pavilion at the lodge was comfortable which allowed us to cook out every night. Jenny cooks the best French toast and omlets. We rose early to view beautiful sunrises and went to bed late to see bright shining stars. Must sees:Fort Davis Historical Site and McDonald Observatory. The drive on the way is breath taking, we captured great pics from the highest point on the mountain-6000feet! When in town visit: the fudge shop inside drug store, Fort Davis nut company, Murphy"a Pizza-there is a live tree standing in the middle of the restaurant! Balmorhea Springs is a must! It rained during our trip there, we had fun none the less. Word of caution-due to the algae take swim shoes or wear skele-toes the bottom is slippery. Finally on the way in you have to stop in Pecos at the "West of the Pecos Museum". This is for those that love the Wild, Wild West gun fighter era.
