About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Casa Mano Prieto, a 1350 square foot home, is nestled beneath the Puertacitas and Mano Prieto Mountains with long range views of Blue Mountain and Mount Livermore.

The enchanting setting is perfect for any getaway plans - exploring, birding, hiking or just watching the jackrabbits, quail and deer. Peace and quiet are the norm. Near by are the McDonald Observatory, Davis Mountains State Park, Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center and Fort Davis National Historic Site. Views outside all windows display the vastness and beauty of West Texas. The lighting changes the views all day long. Night brings the darkest, brightest, starry skies for the star gazer in you. It is a perfect spot to set up your own telescope.
