We just spent four delightful nights at the Veranda Inn. The Inn is charming and filled with furnishings reminiscent of its early days in the 1880's. Wonderful home-baked breakfast treats each morning. Loved chatting with Dave and Eleanor! Great location to visit local attractions. Eager to return.

My wife and I enjoyed our two night stay at the Veranda. The visit was a respite on our cross country drive. The town and scenery are delightful in their austerity and quaintness. The Observatory and hiking in the Davis Mountains provide just enough to do for a short stay. So much better than a generic hotel on I-10. Dave...

Very comfortable and charming B&B. Rooms are large, tall ceilings, nice amenities, good selection for breakfast. The lobby and its antiques take you back to the 1800's when the Veranda was built. Off the main street, quiet, very restful. The hotel has a great porch for morning coffee and a beautiful view.

This over-100-year structure is wonderfully clean and beautifully appointed. I don't usually take pictures of the motels along our journey, but I did here. The inn and furnishings are antique yet set up in a way to enhance modern travel. We were in Suite 11, which sported an interesting pathway of left here, right here, take a door here, go...

This Bed & Breakfast comes with all the charm and style one might expect from a historic b & b. The room was nice and comfortable. A good strong WiFi signal was also a plus. Very disappointed however to discover the next morning that this bed and breakfast was dropping their home cooked breakfast, opting for a continental style breakfast...

We are glad that you found the inn comfortable. I am sorry that you were disappointed in our breakfast. You are correct that we have stopped serving hot entrees. However, we have found that most guests appreciate more variety in breakfast rather than a "take it or leave" single entree. Our buffet is quite extensive, with boiled eggs, a selection...

Hotel Limpia is nice, but the Veranda is special. How often do you stay in a hotel with thick adobe walls? We stayed in Room 10, which is isolated in one wing with Room 11. The room was quiet and comfortable. Great breakfast.

We had a three night stay in November, and enjoyed every day there. The rooms were well presented and the breakfast each morning was a delight!. The hotel is well situated for the main places of interest in the surrounding area or as we did just spend a lazy afternoon on the porch. Will try and make the trip out...

The Veranda was a stopover night for us on our way to Big Bend. We found the inn to be very charming, comfortable, and clean and would certainly recommend it to others and absolutely stay there again as we were very pleased with our choice. There is much to see and do around Ft Davis and if your travel plans...

We had never been to West Texas and the Veranda Historic Inn is a real gem in Fort Davis. Totally enjoyed our stay. Quiet and refreshing. We were 5 adults, so we reserved the Carriage House, which was perfect. Lovely, comfortable and very clean. A full kitchen equipped with dishes, glasses, pots, etc. should we choose to prepare meals. In...

Recently stayed in Fort Davis for two nights. Wish we had another day on this trip just to relax on the lovely front porch or hang out in the cozy sitting room. Place was charming and quaint, down to every little detail. Hosts were top-notch, gourmet breakfast was delicious, and the afternoon cookies/treats were a delight. Will definitely plan to...
