We loved the location and adorable cabins. Inside there were really comfy beds (nice comforters and towels too!) and everything we needed was there (a mini fridge, microwave, table and chairs and two armchairs). We walked around and it's a beautiful picturesque setting, surrounded by mountains. Very good location to Marfa and McDonald Observatory. We reserved the cabin for two...

Really nice, quiet place to stay just outside of Ft. Davis (less than five minutes) Bed was comfy, room was cozy, wifi was a plus, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would absolutely stay there again for quality of room and staff.

These great rustic cabins are perfect for those needing a place to crash after a day of exploring the Davis Mountains. Our family of 4 stayed in the 2 bed cabin. All have a little kitchenette with a mini fridge and coffee maker. Perfect for storing sandwich fixings and breakfast needs. It also has a small bathroom with a potty...

Came late in day so never had a chance to meet owners who had left key in the door for us. Room was very clean and simple with all the furnishings you need. Beds very comfortable and Heating/AC worked fine. The only reason this is not a 5 star is we had a bit to much noise coming from whoever...

We booked a few nights stay at Mountain Trails Lodge when the weather was too cold for tent camping. The cabins easily accommodate a family of four and the use of the common space grill and kitchenette made for a camping like feel. Cabins were clean and comfortable. The lodge is only about a ten minute drive to Davis Mtns...

Mountain Trails Lodge is always great. Very simple cabins but extremely clean and comfortable. Quiet and close to Fort Davis and a 30 minute drive to either Alpine or Marfa. Sit outside at night and view the amazing sky. Give Mountain Trails Lodge a try you will not be disappointed.

Very impressed and loved this place. Very nice and quite location. Room was well cleaned, bed was comfortable, room was cooled down prior to our arrival, and had our basic necessities. Bathroom was small and it was actually nice not having a TV in the room. It was nice to sit on the porch and enjoy the beauty of nature....

Quieter than expected considering close to road. Didn't have neighbors on other side of duplex cabin so can't comment on that. All in all decent place to rest after active days hiking. Liked having fridge, coffepot, microwave and storage. Bathroom VERY small. Only sink in kitchenette area. If you like to sleep late don't get east facing room. Upon arrival...
