Ahhh...so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Hummingbird Cottage. Why did we come back and stay here? Because it's a FANTASTIC place to stay! Jenny makes it so cozy, inviting, and relaxing. It's a cozy little cottage with wonderful amenities, such as a kitchen stocked with pots and pans, plates, silverware, and more. Jenny provides you with the local coffee, Big Bend Coffee Roasters...so yummy! Did I mention there's a washer and dryer there? I love being able to wash my clothes if needed.

Hummingbird Cottage is located close to downtown - you can walk there! It's also close to Marfa, Fort Davis, Marathon, Big Bend National Park, and more! This is a beautiful part of Texas, one that everyone needs to experience. So, come stay at Hummingbird Cottage and enjoy your time relaxing here!

All the convenience of your personal Tiny House plus an awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We've been visitors in the area for a looooong time, and this friendly spot hit the spot. The cottage has a sensibly equipped kitchen space, so you can make your breakfast, store your lunch fixings, and even make dinner, if you want. Local, excellent coffee included. W/D. Plenty of outlets to charge stuff; cable TV for late night laxness; good internet to use to research local trails. And the host was delightful and helped us research local hiking spots. Comfy and appropriately priced when we were there, and super clean.

Loved This Cottage, Loved Alpine!

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbird Cottage is a great place for two people visiting Alpine. The cottage is well designed, super clean, and very convenient and private. The kitchen is well stocked, the bed was comfortable and we appreciated the off-street parking. Jenny was out of town during our stay, but we did meet one of her friends who was very helpful with recommendations. Alpine is a lovely little town with friendly residents and a laid back attitude. Alpine is worth the trip and is the place to stay in West Texas. We forget how dark skies can really be, but the night sky is incredible out there! It's easy to visit Marfa (doesn't live up to the hype but the courthouse and the Paisano hotel are worth a look) and Fort Davis (loved it!).

We loved staying in this peaceful little cottage. It was perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very charming and nicely decorated, it's very cozy and inviting. We loved curling up in bed after lunch for a quick nap and hearing all the birds chirping outside our window. Everything was working properly and we had everything we might need to cook.

The only downside to cooking is the very sensitive smoke alarm. It went off several times for no apparent reason, but if you leave the door open while cooking you should be fine.

Jenny is VERY accommodating. Her little cottage is clean, quiet and has everything you could possibly need. Thank you, Jenny, for doing a couple extra things to meet our needs.

Fun Times

  • 5 of 5

The area was quiet, never saw another person. The neighbor dogs never barked at us, but the mailman was a different matter (heh). The dwelling was comfortable and clean, perfect for a couple like us. It was fully furnished as well, including the kitchen, as we were able to buy groceries from the local markets and cook complete meals without needing to get any utensils or cookware of any kind. Climate control was effective and we were comfortable the whole time despite the highs and lows of the temperature outside (weather was everything from hot to raining cold). The location was a few short blocks from Alpine's main street area, easy to get to, way to find, and the sheltered driveway only added to the feeling of privacy. I recommend this rental very highly, and we will certainly be using it again!
