“Darrell and Pam Mayhew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

The cabins are very clean. It is so quiet there if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The breakfast is a home cooked and very good and plenty of food. The owners are very polite and very friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a very nice and quiet place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back have the best view.

When we were looking for a place to stay in Fort Davis, Mountain Trail Lodge was last on our list. But we booked 2 cabins there, coz of its reasonable rate with breakfast. Now, after spending 2nights there, I'm sure that we made the best choice.

We booked 2 cabins there. The cabins we booked had 2 queen size bed with 4chair dining. The cabins were neat, clean and cozy. The place was slightly outside of Fort Davis and was very calm. The view from our cabin was great.

The breakfast was awesome! It’s like having home food in a lodge. They had freshly baked Biscuits, crispy potatoes, scrambled eggs and Chowder made of meat and sausage. They also had a bunch of cereals with Milk, juice and all. The chowder and the biscuits are the best I've had so far. You can see Jenne in the front desk. She is very warm and sweet. She'll come to every table to greet you and to get used plates from you (even though she has staffs working). I love this place and I'll stay here if I go to Fort Davis again.

This was a great and relaxing place to stay very relaxing and the rooms were cozy. Great view if you like to star gaze on your back patio and the BEST breakfast I had on my trip :) I would stay there again.

I've stayed here numerous times...just haven't yet written a review. I absolutely love coming here. Scott and Jenny are truly amazing hosts (friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and great cooks). The cabins are comfortable and sit underneath a beautiful night sky. I so enjoy going to visit – and get that way whenever I can. The Mountain Trails Lodge has become my home away from home

We enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Mountain Trails Lodge. The owners were friendly and helpful. The cabin was nicely furnished and very clean. The beds were very comfortable, and the wi-fi worked well. We had everything we needed and more. The views from our back porch were great (see picture). We enjoyed starting our days with the delcious home-cooked breakfasts and ending our nights with spectacular views of the starry night skies. I highly recommend this place!

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.
