Why Tex Harrison chose Fort Davis
After their home was finished, they decided to share this beautiful spot with others and opened Casa Mano Prieto in January 2010.

Lovely peaceful location
We loved Casa Mano Prieto! From the star gazing to the animal sounds to the beautiful garden, Tex and Tom have done a great job with their slice of Heaven on earth. We will definitely go back.
We love to share our mountains and Casa and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We welcome you back anytime!
Should have spent more time...
A place with a soul. Beautiful views. With an opportunity to experience a West Texas dust storm. It was fantastic.
Unique West Texas Experience
A little haven of art and comfort in the vast spectacular setting of West Texas. Tex and Tom, the friendly owners, make you feel right at home and like you are staying with family. The house itself has everything that you could need in addition to homey touches and art every where you look. Not to mention, clean,comfortable beds. Your outdoor space is as far as the eye can see- wide open landscape and sky. A true get-away-from-it-all with some homey warmth thrown in.
We so enjoy it when someone falls in love with the beauty of West Texas. Each day brings another amazing landscape. Thank you for visiting and do come back!
Living with the star
Wonderful setting with a great view of the mountains. Star gazing was incredible and we really enjoyed the observatory and hiking in the state park.
Quiet Place and Star-Filled Skies
Homey bungalow with a well-equipped kitchen and lots of light. Great proximity to McDonald observatory, Marfa, and Davis Mountain State Park. Very relaxing experience!
Fantastic home in fantastic location
the location is awesome. the house is very spacious and absolutely beautiful. very well supplied kitchen, has everything you need.the artwork by the owners is stunnigly beautiful. owners were very friendly, yet unobtrusive.the only thing to be aware of is the dirt road leading to the property with potholes. unless you have a four wheel drive I would be very careful driving it at night.Ft Davis is a cute little town. the owners website doesn't do the place any justice. the place is much more beautiful.
We are so glad our Casa was better than expected! We actually do have a contract for our road to be fixed but everything takes a long time around here. No matter what, you do need to go slowly at dark watching out for holes and animals! Thank you for also enjoying our art collection. Hopefully you will return to the Big
