“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

This is a fantastic place. Cozy, warm room on a 20 degree night in Fort Davis. Very easy access to the McDonald Observatory. Steve and Carla were very kind and engaging to our 8 year old twins. The breakfast was hearty and had us raring to go for our trip to Big Bend. We will stay there again next time we visit the area.

We loved this very small and cozy bed and breakfast in a historic old schoolhouse. It is in a convenient location, close to many activities for the family. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic.

...an easy way to get into the history of this west Texas town. The old schoolhouse was well appointed, and breakfast was great! Carla and Steve certainly enjoy what they are doing, and were a good resource for exploring the "tri-county" area. As two couples, we used the larger room and one of the two smaller rooms - Can't go wrong with either.

Room Tip: Large room has separate door to outside - easy access.

We stayed in the Reading room at this wonderful bed and breakfast on a recent trip to Big Bend. The room was spacious for our family of four and the owners were accommodating and gracious. Staying at the Old Schoolhouse was a highlight of our trip!

My fiancé and I stayed in the Reading Room at the Old Schoolhouse B&B for one night while we were in the area visiting the McDonald Observatory. In addition to the comfy memory-foam-like bed, the room included a couch, coffee table, dresser, hutch, private bathroom with a spacious shower, and private patio/entrance. FYI - the other rooms (the 'Riting and 'Rithmetic Rooms) would share a very lovely common bathroom with a tub/shower. There is a Common Room that includes a coffee table, dining table, couch, and kitchen accessories (sink, fridge well-stocked with beverages, counter). There was ample reading material available, including information about local restaurants and activities. It was great meeting and chatting with the inn keepers Steve and Carla. They want their B&B to feel like "visiting your favorite aunt," which is precisely the vibe that I felt while staying there. They certainly succeeded in making us feel welcome and relaxed. The breakfast was fantastic! We had fresh fruit, oatmeal, juice, and tea (we don't drink coffee but it was of course available). The setting was beautiful with the mountains in the background and plenty of trees! We even saw a deer in the yard, less than 100 feet away! I would definitely recommend staying at the Old Schoolhouse B&B the next time you're near Fort Davis, TX.

This is a great place for couples to spend a few days in West Texas. Very close to the Davis Mountain State Park and National Historic Site. Owners are very warm and friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. My wife and I went with my brother and his wife for our first time to Fort Davis. We really enjoyed our stay and especially appreciated the hospitality of Steve and Carla. We would definitely recommend the Schoolhouse B&B for anyone who wants to visit Fort Davis.

Room Tip: If its a busy weekend try to stay in the larger room with the in-suite bathroom.
