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.

Loved CASA Hermosa!

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!!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights in the one bedroom. ( studio) Very clean , cozy feel to it . Loved our own little porch . The kitchen was basically fridge , microwave and coffee pot , so not a place for doing a lot of cooking . Like a previous person mentioned , the mini split can make a lot of noise when the heater is on. But all in all we enjoyed our stay and really loved Fort Davis .

Great place to stay while you explore & relax!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Casa Hermosa King was enjoyable. The location gave us a great feel of the lifestyle in Ft. Davis, which is relaxing, slow paced, and friendly. Even though there's a school nearby you'd never know it, and we were there when school was going on. The entire area is very peaceful.

Everything needed is provided by the owners and they are extremely helpful with suggestions as to what to see and where to eat. (We were happy that Blue Bell ice cream was in abundance!)

A minor problem is the size of the TV; but then, we didn't go there for TV. In fact, the only reason we noticed was because we were there during the baseball playoffs and we're big baseball fans. Otherwise, it was not important.

Casa Hermosa is a really good place to relax, and to get a good sleep, after exploring all there is to see and do in the area...visit the fort (very interesting), take several scenic drives (learned a lot by stopping to read the historical markers), star gaze, and of course, visit the observatory (attended every viewing offered & totally enjoyed each one).

We would stay there again,

Fred & Linda
