West Texas Mountain Get-a-wayThe Veranda offers you a quiet, restful get-a-way filled with the song of birds, the vision of gardens , the rhythm of rocking chairs - all under the clearest skies in Texas! Our mission is to offer the best of West Texas hospitality to all our guests by providing you with elegant but comfortable accommodations, excellent food, and all the local information you need to make your trip to the Davis Mountains enjoyable.
Porches, Courtyards and Gardens Nestled by The Davis MountainsThe large front porch (or veranda) faces due south. Patrons frequently spend cool evenings there watching the brilliant display of stars for which the area is famous. Gazers often are treated to the spectacle of falling stars and speeding satellites. The Milky Way is so bright at night that it is regularly mistaken for clouds!
The grounds include two secluded, walled courtyards. One is on the east side of the building and contains two large Honey Locust shade trees, lilac bushes and iris. It has two covered porches, lots of outdoor chairs and tables, and is shaded all afternoon.
The west courtyard is smaller and more intimate. Its entry is guarded by a beautiful red bud tree and is spectacular in the early spring. The old, rock-arched entry is constructed of local stone. The entire grounds occupy most of a city block and are dotted with gardens and fruit trees.
