We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We feel we found one of the treasures of Alpine, TX! The Hummingbird cottage was so much more than we expected. The owner, Jenny, has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. We forgot to bring our coffee and 1/2&1/2 and there was coffee provided and 1/2 &1/2 in the frig!!!

There is storage everywhere and a washer/dryer for longer stays. It has a nice size bathroom with a huge tub.

After exploring and hiking, it was a great place to return to and nestle in to watch anything we wanted on the direct TV.

We are so happy to have had such a great stay in Alpine!

Perfectly Alpine

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, perfect for two. We enjoyed being close to the Artwalk action without being right in the middle of it. We eat a very low crab, ketogenic diet, so being able to cook a couple of meals in was helpful. Big love to Blue Water Co-op, where we shopped—an amazing selection for a town this size! The bed was very comfortable and the Aveda toiletries were wonderful. The cottage was clean and everything worked great. And anyone who provides a pad of paper and sharpened pencil has my loyalty! Many thanks to our wonderful host.

The Hummingbird Cottage was perfect. Great proximity to the town, restaurants and shopping!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend the Hummingbird Cottage in a heartbeat. Very clean, and you have everything you need right there in the vacinity - groceries, restaurants, shopping - and the magnificent Big Bend just an hour and a half away! Jenny was very hospitable, and her dog Lynn is so sweet! We will be sure and stay again whenever we are in the area.
