Perfect setting for family get together.

We stayed over Labor Day weekend with our grown children. It was the perfect getaway. The house is very spacious with lots of private spots to curl up with a book or join the rest of the family in the comfortable living area. The kitchen had everything we needed and was plenty big enough for several cooks at the same time. The propane grill was ready to go our first night there. We did lots of cooking and especially enjoyed shopping at the organic grocery in town. We enjoyed all our meals on the screened porch. Lots of comfortable seating, especially the glider, and the large picnic table had room for all of us.
The house was everything the description implied. It had a very comfortable, homey feel. Beautiful views and cool breezes through the open windows. We seldom needed the evaporative cooler, but when we did it cooled the house quickly.
We drove to Marfa for the Marfa Lights Festival and to the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory. Both were just a short distance away. We felt peaceful and secluded at Hope's Ranch but could be in Fort Davis in just a few minutes. We will definitely return to Hope's Ranch.
