Took my hubby here for his birthday. Lovely historical inn. Quiet location. Room was wonderful with comfortable antique furnishings and a private bathroom with a nice shower/tub. No AC, but not needed at all. Had homemade cookies waiting in the lobby each day. Nice hot breakfast each morning. Walk the grounds around the inn, they're very nice. We had reservations...

Thank you for your review! We look forward to your next visit. By the way, all of our rooms are air conditioned. Our central A/C is very quiet!

There are basically two places to stay in Fort Davis, Texas-- this B&B and the old hotel Limpia. We usually prefer B&Bs, so chose this, but we think we would have done better in the hotel. The B&B main building is historic, and interesting for that reason, but we thought the separate cottage would be great for us as a...

I am sorry that you did not enjoy the Garden Cottage. Ironically, it is consistently one of our most popular rooms. The furniture is actually antique (except for the leather lounge chairs), and the building is the original converted bath house for the inn. We like to think that the private porch overlooking Sleeping Lion Mountain makes up for the...

My wife and I stayed here July 26 for one night. David , the host , was very prompt and courteous showing us to our room, and made good recommendations of restaraunts in the area. The room itself (#7) was large, nice, and clean, with a very comfortable king-sized bed and antique furniture. The bathroom was almost standard hotel fare,...

This is a historic inn filled with antique furniture and very relaxing. It had special touches that made it worth the stay. The amazing breakfast in the morning is home cooked and delicious. I was impressed. The homemade cookies put out in the afternoon were awesome. I was excited each day to see what kind they would be. When we...

First, let me tell you that I recommend the Veranda as the best place to stay in Fort Davis. It is centrally located near all the stores and restaurants right across the street from the historic court house. Beautiful old inn (built in late 19th century) that is well appointed. Complete with original flooring that talks to you when you...

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would recommend the Veranda. I would like to address a few of your points. Although you were not greeted personalty, most of our guests are. You arrived on a Wednesday which is day I try to partially take off, since it is the slowest day of the week for us. (Even...

We had a great stay at the Veranda and really enjoyed taking in Fort Davis. We were able to book the Garden Cottage so we had a little more seclusion which was nice. Very charming and peaceful out here. My only negatives would be the dog that lives on property and the cheap toilet paper, but that's just me being...

The Veranda Inn is a quiet small inn. The room was comfortable. We had Suite 8, which is on the west end of the building. It has its own small window unit AC. It provided adequate cooling on a very hot day. There were ceiling fans in both rooms. It was comfortable. The other parts of the building have central...

Four generations of our family stayed in this charming bed and breakfast, and found it to be a very nice place for all ages. The younger members enjoyed watching the stars from the garden appreciating the very clear sky, and we all thoroughly appreciated the delicious breakfast and going away treat bag.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this historic inn. The furniture is antique and our room was spacious. The inn has central air and the temperature was comfortable. Breakfasts were outstanding and the afternoon cookies were delicious. Coffee, tea, and water were always available. Restaurants are within walking distance. The owner offered suggestions which were very good. We might return...
