We arrived in Fort Davis after spending a couple of days in Big Bend. The hotel is easy to find and located in a neighborhood, but very close to the main street where restaurants and shopping are located. We were able to walk to dinner each night where we checked out the Blue Mountain Bistro and the Ice Cream Soda... More

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... More

Great little place. Quiet and restful. Each room is unique and furnished with antiques. Front porch is a fabulous spot for an afternoon nap or quiet conversation with other travelers. David the owner is nice and knowledgable about the surrounding area. Just ask and he will give you suggestions for things to do. There is only 1 TV in the... More

We enjoyed an excellent weekend at The Veranda on our first trip to Fort Davis. The lovely house itself is welcoming and warm - comfortable old fashioned decor, rocking chairs to settle into on the front porch, nice open seating areas for gathering or just reading a book, and great breakfasts and afternoon goodies! Our room was also comfortable, clean,... More

This was our second stay at the wonderful Veranda Inn in Ft Davis and it didn't disappoint again. Honestly, this might be one of my favorite B&B's. The website accurately portrays all the rooms and cottage so pick what works best for you. We have stayed in rooms 5 & 8 which are king suites in the front (street side)... More

Spent one night at the Veranda and it was outstanding! Comfortable, historic room and welcoming staff. We enjoyed everything about our visit to Fort Davis and The Veranda was icing on the cake. Also, I managed to leave my Ipad in the room and was too far away before they called to tell me they had it. If I left... More

Close to several area attractions, like McDonald Observatory, old Fort Davis, and Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center. Eleanor the cook made us a fantastic breakfast and was very friendly.

We spent 2 nights in suite 4 and enjoyed the relaxing nature of the inn. Nice to not have a TV in the room since it keeps the family wanting to get out and do something during the day. Loved the conversation and breakfast with people from all over. David made sure everyone was satisfied the whole time.

Just spent 3 nights at the Veranda Historic Inn and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We stayed in Suite 5, which is a two-room suite with a private bath.

I had the large room at the back end of the house. Very comfortable. Very enjoyable. I did not have the breakfast or interact w the owner, so I cannot comment on those aspects, but I would definitely recommend the Inn.
