We recently stayed at the Veranda in Fort Davis. Our intent was to attend the star party at the McDonald Observatory. Arriving late at night our host accommodated our needs and left a key and instructions for us. Quickly unloading and running off to the observatory after 9 PM we arrived before 10 and found that the clouds were clearing! Great time was had by all of us.
Sleeping accommodations were good with two queen size beds. The breakfast the next morning was a good combinations of french toast, bacon, fresh baked zucchini muffins and breads. Eleanor was our chef and was a great conversationalist as well.
An old hotel from the late 1800's, lots of antiques and charm. Out back a pot bellied pig was a pet of their children and was cute. A great opportunity to enjoy the hospitality and comfort of the weather out here. This was our second stay in Fort Davis and we intend to come back again in the future.
