LUXURY HUNTING CABIN 'ON THE ROCKS'

Fort Davis House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath And A Loft With Mountain Views

'On the Rocks', our mountain getaway, is located just southeast of Fort Davis on top of a scenic bluff overlooking beautiful Muzquiz Canyon and Mitre Peak of the Davis Mountains. There are porches on all four sides of the house, each with its own view of West Texas. We are less than 10 minutes from the history of Fort Davis, 25 minutes from the art galleries of Marfa, and 20 minutes from Alpine, making it easy to explore what makes each town unique.The master bedroom has a king bed with its own fireplace and bathroom. One guestroom has a king bed and the other a queen, each with their own bathroom. There is also a loft with two twin beds with access from the west bedroom.

Hardwood floors, cedar ceiling and non-mortared rock construction with a basement dug into the side of the bluff on which the house sits, make for a very comfortable stay throughout the year. Central a/c and heat were added early 2012, along with all new stainless appliances.

The house offers two fireplaces, both gas ignited, along with full amenities. Trophies of magnificent elk, audad sheep and deer adorn the walls. 360 views, porches at every bedroom.

The house was built by my father, Dr. Royce Read, in the mid 1980's as a second home away from Lufkin, Texas. He gifted it to me in 2012 and my husband and I have been updating it since. John and I live in San Antonio, Texas with our 2 children, Cuate and Ada. It is our hope that others can enjoy our west Texas hideaway as much as we do.

Ginger Turner purchased this house in 1983

WOWZA!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot stress enough just how MUCH we loved our weekend at "On The Rocks." Each room had their own beautifully-appointed bathroom, and the decor was both beautiful and comfortable simultaneously. And the beds, oh the beds -- so comfy! What a treat: large beds with comfortable mattresses and soft sheets! Such comfort and amazing beauty. We highly recommend this for girls' weekends, couples' weekends, and weekends with kids!

This is one of the few properties I've rented that was far superior to the description and pictures. The house was immaculate and stocked with everything you could possibly need.

stunning Davis Mountains getaway

  • 5 of 5
Three families with children spent four nights over the Thanksgiving holiday here, and we can't rave enough. First, the location is amazing - a short drive from Marfa, Fort Davis and the McDonald Observatory, and an easy day trip to Big Bend. The house sits on top of some amazing formations, and the kids spent hours exploring and climbing the nearby rocks. Honestly, we think they enjoyed that part of the stay as much as anything.

As it sits on the rocks, the house has a feel of a high-rise condo in the middle of West Texas - something you would never see! The house is also VERY well appointed with quality kitchen utensils and dishes. There are plenty of towels and comfortable bed linens. While the description clearly said that the loft was accessed through the west bedroom, we didn't catch it and one of our couples had to take one for the team. Other than that, it was absolutely perfect!

My only hesitation in raving about this house is that it may become hard to book, and we plan to do so again and again in the years to come!

Girls Weekend to West Texas

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with this house. We loved the porch on back the most. Had 8 ladies and we do think the loft is not one of the things we could ever do, but the rest of the house was great. Not far from Fort Davis, the kitchen fully equiped, large eating area for all, great for playing games on also, lighting not a problem at all, we loved it and will return

Perfect location for a peaceful, getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and two other couples thoroughly delighted in the comfort and seclusion of this property. The photos perfectly reflect the well-appointed and well-maintained cabin. The bedrooms were spacious, and we all agreed we hadn't slept so peacefully/comfortably in some time! The view of the mountains from the rocking chairs on one of 4 porches is wonderful - especially at sunrise. When it got too chilly, relaxing around the fireplace was the perfect ending to the day. The owner and manager were very helpful in answering questions and giving directions. The Stone Village Market - just minutes away - has a good selection of fruits, cheese, wine, etc. and a great little deli. Curry tuna is awesome! Blue Mountain Bistro beside the Limpia Hotel was good for dinner. The "star party," the nighttime program at the McDonald Observatory, is a real treat on a clear night. Dress warmly! (You can see the mountaintop observatory from the front porch of the cabin.) In Alpine, the Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross is excellent! Check out the Cow Dog food truck for lunch and Reata for dinner. Murphy St. Raspa Company is a wonderfully quirky place for teas, coffees, raspas, or ice cream. Of course, don't overlook Big Bend National Park. In Marfa, check out the historic Paisano Hotel, which was the headquarters for the cast and crew of the movie, "Giant." Try the Food Shark (food truck) for lunch - great Middle Eastern menu! No trip to Marfa would be complete without a nighttime trip to the viewing site for the Marfa lights alongside I-90. We actually saw them!!! I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking for peace and quiet and "off the beaten path," interesting things to do!
