Beautiful Indian Lodge

A perennial favorite in our region is the historic Indian Lodge in Davis Mountains State Park!  A quiet place to relax during a trip to the mountains, travelers enjoy this beautiful adobe structure, which was built by Civilian Conservation Corps workers in the 1930s.

From the Lodge's website:

"Indian Lodge is a unique inn located in Jeff Davis County northwest of Fort Davis within the bounds of Davis Mountains State Park. Built in the 1930s, it was opened to the public in 1939. The historic section of the lodge was constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and features the original interiors and furnishings. In 1967, a major construction project was completed, including renovation of the original structure, which has eighteen-inch adobe walls, hand-carved cedar furniture, and ceilings of pine viga and latilla. It resembles a Southwestern Native-American-style, multilevel pueblo village." 

The Indian Lodge is one of our region's best historic hotels, as you plan your next visit to the Texas Mountain Trail region, consider staying in one of them!
