Casa Hermosa King Is The Perfect Spot For Your West Texas Getaway!

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

Comfortable. Well stocked. Convenient location

Excellent location in town. Generous amount of reference material for things to see and do within the Big Bend area. We enjoyed a long weekend here and will certainly return. Highly recommended.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This rental was so awesome. Amazing dark skies for astronomy and Casablanca Hermosa was perfect. We loved the great private patio. It was quite and so relaxing. We has the best time ever. It was clean and neat. The natural soaps/ dish soaps were a nice touch and the owners went out of their way to make us feel at home. Perfect for a getaway for couples with furry kidds. We will come back for sure.

Perfect Rental for Two People and a Dog

  • 5 of 5

Great location - able to walk the dog morning and evening around the immediate area. Plus, property is about half way between the observatory and Marfa, and close to the State Park and the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute. The rental itself was clean and efficiently laid out, requiring little effort to adjust to our temporary residence. Owner was friendly and helpful. Would definitely rent this property in the future.

Cozy, comfortable retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The King Suite was perfect for our stay at Fort Davis. Comfortable bed with soft sheets, great WIFI, and pet friendly. Kirk called our first day to check that everything was in order. We enjoyed sipping a glass of wine on our patio and relaxing in the big leather chairs to watch TV at night. It's an easy walk to the downtown area with shops and restaurants.

Cozy, quiet get away in Fort Davis

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay in Casa Hermosa & this time we rented both sides of the duplex (our adult kids stayed in the attached 2 bedroom/2 bath unit) and we really enjoyed our time here.

Pros: king bed is very comfortable and has extra pillows.

-quiet location with minimal traffic noise

-has kitchenette that is handy for quick breakfasts

-bathroom is spotless and has blow dryer, toiletries & very good water pressure

-2 comfortable chairs facing TV that were used often and appreciated

-convenient location to all the places we visited... Davis Mountains State Park for excellent hiking (8 miles), McDonald Observatory for star gazing (18 miles), Chiuanuan Nature Center (about 6 miles) for another great hike & look at the natural plants of the area, Fort Davis (1 mile) for a fascinating look back to the history of the area.

-Fort Davis General Store: great burgers!

-Stone Village Market: delicious sandwiches that are great for packing up for picnic/hike.

The only con I can come up with is the small TV but not a huge inconvenience since we weren't here to watch television (just caught the news each day).

Highly recommend this place for those who want a peaceful, private & relaxing place to stay. Kirk (the owner) is very communicative & easy to work with. I hope to return again!

A Comfortable Place

  • 4 of 5

This lodging is beautifully decorated and spotlessly maintained, although "suite" is a pretty grand word for the one-room, one-bath space, and "kitchenette" implies more than a cubby with a sink, refrigerator, and microwave (no stovetop or oven; however, an electric skillet and single plug-in burner reside in the bottom drawer and tv trays rest in the corner--no dining table inside). Quiet and comfortable, with a private patio (table and chairs there) and ample parking, this place is well managed and centrally located for outings into every part of far West Texas.
