West Texas Charm
Submitted: January 13, 2013
Stayed: April 2012
My husband and I stayed at Casa Vida in April of 2012 and really enjoyed our stay there. The West Texas/Mexican style of the adobe home was so charming with its Talavera decor. We have stayed in bed and breakfasts all over the country and found this one to be exceptional with so many amenities, such as three tv's, Bose radios, Western CD's, and magazines and books about the area. It is a picturesque setting with climbing roses blooming in the yard and a patio for sitting outside.The house was very clean and well maintained, and even had a washer and dryer for longer stays.
We enjoyed having breakfast at the bakery/coffee shop on the main street and really enjoyed dinner on two evenings at the Reata Restaurant. The Reata has great West Texas decor and really good food as well. When we are in Alpine we always walk in the park which has good birding. The museum at Sull Ross University is excellent with information on the history of the area, in particular the many petroglyphs found in the Big Bend area. We would also recommend going to a "Star Party" at the McDonald Observatory which we did a couple of years ago, and the birding nearby at the Indian Lodge State Park is excellent.
This was our 13th trip to West Texas in the past 12 years so you can tell that we really enjoy it there, and we plan on another stay at Casa Vida. We would definitey recommend Casa Vida to friends.
