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.

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.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! My best friend and I enjoyed spending our Spring Break at this cute and charming place. We were able to relax, but also do some work because of the great Wi-Fi connection. We didn't want to leave because we were enjoying our time away from every day life. We'd love to come back and enjoy this little piece of relaxation and comfort.

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Casa Hermosa King was an enjoyable stay. The room was very comfortable, clean and convenient to surrounding attractions. The owner had some great recommendations for restaurants and activities. We had only one small minor issue during our stay (the coffee pot did not work properly) but once it was brought to the owners attention we received an immediate response thanking us for bringing the matter to his attention and assuring us the coffee pot would be replaced for future guest. We definitely would recommend this property to others as it is the perfect spot for travelers who come to Fort Davis.

Quiet and peaceful, yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Hermosa. I was surprised at first to realize there was a school across the street, but even though school was in session we never heard a peep. And the tall patio wall gave us all the privacy we needed. Loved the rocking chairs on the patio. The grill came in handy since we were there on a Mon-Wed when many of the restaurants in town were closed. We picked up some steaks and enjoyed a beautiful evening grilling on the patio. The inside was perfect for us; king sized bed and a nice seating area with big comfy leather chairs, plus a small kitchen area. We walked most everywhere and also brought our bikes and biked around town; easy riding since it is all flat and very little traffic. Great location, in a quiet residential area, yet just a few blocks from the main street of town. My husband said this was his favorite stay of our week long trip!
