Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbird Cottage was absolutely wonderful. It is cozy and intimate, but has everything you could possibly need! My wife and I came out to go to Big Bend, Marfa, and the McDonald Observatory. Alpine turned out to be completely awesome with incredible food and local businesses. The cottage is really in the perfect location to access all the sites.

The cottage itself was very clean and cozy. It’s in a quiet, safe neighborhood with very little traffic passing by the cottage. We liked having our own little private driveway, and started our morning off sitting on the front porch enjoying local coffee. Having a washing machine and dryer is a plus. The cottage has directv, a DVD player, a chrome stick (which will sync wih both android and iPhones), and really fast WiFi.

Everything about our experience was just perfect. We for sure will be back. We also felt that the price was very cheap and reasonable considering all the amenities and how well maintained the cottage is!!

Thank you for an amazing experience!!

We stayed 3 nights in the cottage and found it very relaxing and was well stocked for cooking in the full kitchen. Very comfy bed! Jenny was very helpful and responds quickly if you need anything. We will definitely go back!

This cottage is adorable - bright, cheerful, cozy, private. We felt totally at home.

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird Cottage is an enchanting getaway. There are lots of windows making the space bright with natural light and cheerful. And there are real hummingbirds. The owner, Jenny, has provided a hummingbird feeder on the covered porch. She has also planted sage in front which attracts the birds as well. There is a full kitchen and even a washer and dryer. The space is truly (I'll repeat myself) enchanting. Jenny is a sweetheart and will go out of her way to make your stay delightful. She responds very quickly to emails and even assisted me with an online booking hiccup (my fault) while she was vacationing in Europe. The only downside for us was dealing with the feeling of sadness when we had to leave.

The best kept secret in Alpine

  • 5 of 5

In one word - fabulous. Jenny has thought of everything. We had our own fully furnished cottage (spotless), and were able to bring our seven-month-old puppy to stay with us, too. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. The Hummingbird is perfect for a couple, close to downtown and a perfect home base to visit Marfa, Ft. Davis, McDonald Observatory and the Big Bend National Park. Thank you, Jenny, for making our stay so comfortable.
