Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 2

Your Casa Hermosa King Suite provides efficient luxury for the single traveler and a cozy, romantic nest for a couple. You’ll enjoy a comfy king-size bed beneath a cathedral ceiling, a full bath, a kitchenette, private parking, and a view of Sleeping Lion Mountain from your easy chair! Just out the door, take advantage of your own flagstone-walled patio. You’ll find a flat-screen cable TV, DVD, and free wireless. And we’re pet friendly, so bring the pooch.

You're an easy walk from downtown Fort Davis, so you're not subject to being stranded in a remote location if the elements turn against you. You can stroll and dine and shop and soak up the unique charm of our town, and you're a quick drive from Texas' most dramatic mountain vistas. Fifteen breathtaking miles from the McDonald Observatory. Twenty miles from the art Mecca of Marfa. Thirty-two miles from a refreshing swim in the spring-fed mountain pool at Balmorhea.

You're surrounded by history both inside--in a past life, Casa Hermosa served our country as a barracks for Army Air Force pilots during World War I--and outside--the rocks on our mountains are 500 million years old, and once served as hiding places for Apache and Comanche warriors.

You'll find Casa Hermosa King the perfect home base for your west Texas adventures. If you're looking for larger accommodations, check out Casa Hermosa Starlight.

Meanwhile, if we can answer any questions, please let us know. We look forward to making you welcome.

Nice and Quiet Break!

  • 5 of 5

It was an awesome stay. Very comfortable and relaxing. We travel to Fort Davis and Alpine on camping and day trips quite a bit, and it was a nice break to just breath and relax! The room was just the right size, very clean, and awesome private porch area. Of course, you have to visit the Big Bend Brewery in Alpine as well. I love this area.

What a great place to stay in Ft Davis! Had a great view of Sleeping Lion Mt. inside and out. Enjoyed our pot of coffee each morning that was provided for us. And the owner was very helpful and gave us info about the area.

We really enjoyed our stay..the room was very clean and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Hermosa King was especially clean. The king bed was comfortable with really nice linens. We had a small refrigerator and microwave with a sink. There was so many good restaurants in the area that we didn't eat at room too often.

. Kirk, the owner, was so helpful. He always answered right away if we had questions. He wrote us information on places to go for recreation and restaurants. We took his advice and went to Alpine and ate breakfast at Bread and Breakfast and it was good. Ft Davis is convenient to go to Alpine, Marfa, and Marathon plus the McDonald Observatory. The weather in October was wonderful!! Come and enjoy this part of Texas!!
