Indian Lodge

Indian Lodge Fort Davis TexasIndian Lodge, located a short distance from the Fort, 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. Indian Lodge was voted the #1 accommodation in Texas by readers of Texas Highways magazine in 1992.


The Elevation is 5,200 ft. and Weather at this mile-high altitude offers cool summer weather and crisp nights. Winter visitors may be treated to an occasional snowfall over the scenic landscape.

There is a hotel Restaurant located in the hotel and has really great food, especially the steaks.

The room that I try and get whenever I visit the Lodge is room 7.  It over looks the valley below from the balcony and the vista is breath taking!
