A woodsy weekend escape in a historic lodge setting.
This rustic lodge was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Its architecture resembles a Native American adobe pueblo. Much of it was rebuilt in 1967 to reinforce the adobe walls and preserve the hand-carved cedar furniture --- the historic section still displays original construction and furnishings. Blues and whites accent natural wood furniture in the spacious guest rooms. Amenities include central air and heat, cable TV, telephones and full maid service. Morning coffee is complimentary. Facilities range from a full-service restaurant to an outdoor swimming pool. This is a perfect place for both out-of-state tourists and those from nearby cities to get away from it all. Local attractions include a 72-mile scenic loop drive through the surrounding Davis Mountains, the ghostly Marfa Lights, the McDonald Observatory, and the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute and Visitors Center.
