The lodging options in Fort Davis are much like the town - small and eclectic. With a 12-year old in tow, our choice was, of course, based on the tv and the pool. After narrowing the list, positive TA reviews and the charming pictures on the website won us over. Upon our arrival, both the owner (Raymond,who lives on premises) and the pool/patio area won us over.

Room choices include ones in the "modern" section next to the road and rooms (camp and regular) further back in the original 1930's building, 18 in total. The stones of the in the older section have hardwood floors and ceilings, stone walls, ceiling fans (and heating/ac), decent sized flat screen tvs, and a nice long front porch with scattered adirondack chairs and friendly neighbors. We chose one with 2 queens and a separate kitchenette. Each room is unique, but all are clean and cozy with comfortable beds, although there are a few signs of age. Open windows provide ample cooling for all but the hottest few times a day. Free wifi is available, but we had some connection problems. Toiletries are good quality.

However, few people stay in the rooms as the outside beckons. The shaded patio with lovely flowers and hummingbirds calls for relaxing with a book and your beverage of choice. Aaaahhh, who needs an expensive spa treatment? What a break from big city life and a nice step back in time.

The smallish pool is well kept and fine for splashing and cooling off. Towels are provided and regularly refreshed by Raymond, who is always just a step away - frequently pauses to chat. The natural market/deli is just steps away and offers complimentary good quality to guests. We frequented it often during our stay and everyone recognized us. Probably SV's best amenity, next to the overall hospitality.

Stone Village felt small and intimate and is cozy, but not upscale. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

Stone Village is like camping in some ways, in which you will get to know the other guests on the porch or by the pool or the evening campfire. Rooms are uniquely styled. We usually stay in a camp room. Breakfast and lunch tends to be at the adjacent grocery/deli, starting with great coffee. The owners live on premises and are very good at keeping guests coming back. You wont find yourself sitting in an air conditioned box watching tv on vacation at Stone Village.

Myself and 2 other girls spent 4th of July weekend here and had a great time. Our room was priced very well, really comfortable beds, flat screen TV, and microwave and a mini fridge. Unlike many other hotels in the area Tourist Camp also has a small pool (they lay out towels for you) which is great way to end a day of hiking in the area. Plenty of parking in you can walk to everything else in town. The owner is really friendly and made sure we had a great time. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: They have different styles so be sure to check the website to look at the different types before you book.

We rented a suite with a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and coffee pot. We were there during a VERY heavy rain and the first room we in had a roof leak that was over the bed and woke the hubby up at 2:30 am. We reported the leak to Randall first thing in the morning and within a couple of hours we were in a different room. The suites are cozy and clean. The tv's were a little small for entertaining the kids but did serve the purpose. The people working there were very friendly and helpful. Has a pool but it rained the entire time we were there so the kids missed out on that!

Thank you very much for your kind review! You guys were troopers all the way and I really felt
bad that you could never get out of the room. We get these monsoonal rains about every other year, so that's how we find any roof leaks. I wish it had not been over your bed, but I believe we took care of that problem.

I appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to seeing you and your family again!

We rented a suite/room in the historic Truehart Neill house, managed by Stone Village, over 4th July weekend because literally everything else was booked up. I wouldn't stay there again if I had full range of options in Ft Davis, but it was comfortable enough, and much more private than I'd feared, sharing a kitchen and living spaces with two other suites (we hardly saw the other occupants). The house is old & while some features are nice, others need real attention or replacement. Randall could not have been nicer, and he manages these in addition to running the SV tourist camp and store. For having just a room, the SV proper (or other local options) would be preferable to me. But for a private rental for a longer stay w/a kitchen, etc, I'd definitely consider renting the free-standing Carriage House behind Trueheart---it was built new after the 2011 fire and looks fantastic, head and shoulders above the historic house, while still in same pastoral setting. The pictures currently online don't show the Carriage House as it is today.
