Directly facing majestic Sleeping Lion mountain, and an easy walk from downtown Fort Davis, the historic accommodations of Casa Hermosa Starlight provide the ideal home base for your west Texas adventures. We’re pet friendly, so bring the pooch.
Stretch out and relax with all the comforts. The Starlight Suite offers two bedrooms with one queen-size and one double bed, a full bath, a living area, and a full kitchen. Flat-screen cable TV, DVD, free wireless. Watch the light change on the mountain from your front-porch rocker!
It's the best of all worlds for your getaway. You're in town, 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 character of Fort Davis, 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.
Before you check in, you'll be provided with a unique combination for the electronic lock to access the Starlight Suite. Casa Hermosa is cozy and quiet. It only offers two suites--the Starlight and the smaller King suite.
We are always available to help with anything you need. You'll be provided with our contact information.
We request a two night minimum stay.
Casa Hermosa is non-smoking. If you choose to smoke outside, please be sure to pick up your cigarette butts.
Out of courtesy to our neighbors and our peaceful little town, we ask that guests refrain from loud or late partying.
My wife Donna Johnson and I are both authors. I write fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, and Donna is best known for her memoir Holy Ghost Girl. We offer our west Texas getaway, Casa Hermosa Suites in Fort Davis, Texas, on Airbnb. We visit west Texas often. On one visit we stayed at Casa Hermosa and fell so much in love that we bought the place.
