Whether you are continuing on to an adventure in the Big Bend National Park, making a day trip to the nearby towns of Marfa and Alpine (each only a 20 minute drive), or just staying right here in Fort Davis, home to the spectacular Davis Mountains and Fort Davis Historical Site or visit the amazing McDonald Observatory - you may find yourself extending your stay or returning again and again to take it all in. The guest homes of A Thousand Miles From Nowhere further add to the fascinating possibilities when planning your journey. And remember we are pet friendly!
The Webster House was a summer home, built in 1898, by the Spencer Gregg family. It was purchased in 1917 by John Webster and has remained in the Webster family for three generations. This incredible home has a lovely porch, perfect for enjoying the evening scenery.
The Desert Willow has a wonderful 30-foot covered porch, pillow-top beds and a great patio for grilling or just relaxing.
Blue Agave Bungalow is a lovely stucco home with a private walled courtyard. There are two patios with pecan and cottonwood trees offering a great shade-filled experience while relaxing outdoors in your rocker to enjoy the view of Sleeping Lion Mountain.
Groups can be accommodated for family reunions, etc. Along with nightly accommodations we also offer the option of extended stay and short term rentals.
Every house has a fully equipped kitchen that has everything from wine glasses to a mountain view. Although we are not a bed & breakfast, we do provide coffee, filters and coffeemaker so you can enjoy mornings and evenings on the porch without having to leave the comfort of your retreat.
All linens are provided so just bring your personal things and a sweater, because mornings and evenings are often cool here in the highest city in Texas.
