Our first trip to Fort Davis and it was amazing! Called ahead on a Friday night as we left earlier than anticipated and asked if our room was available for another night! No problem, left the lights on for us! For 130 year old Inn it is in great shape, 12 foot ceilings, wood floors, our room had mostly antique items from 100 years ago. Breakfast is from 8-9:30 and was very good and lots of coffee and tea. 1 TV in the lounge, but who needs it here anyway. Even had a biker convention going on while we where there and it was still extremely quiet. We will be back when we get another chance for sure! Great Home base if you are visiting, Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis National Historic Site, Cities of Alpine and Marfa........too many things to see in a weekend! (Our only negative on this trip was the Government Shutdown!) Checked out the Terlingua, TX cemetery, kind of creepy, but different! If you are are GeoCache Freak like my wife, you will have a great time also!
