wonderful stay at the hummingbird cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cute and clean! Has full kitchen with complimentary delicious coffee. Using the laundry facilities was very convenient during our stay. Jenny was a great hostess and allowed my pet to join our stay which was nice. Would have loved to stay longer and will recommend to others.

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my stay was perfect. Very comfortable, very clean, very convenient. Jenny has thought of so many details. I especially appreciated the fantastic local coffee, the Aveda toiletries and Tom's toothpaste she provided. A very nice touch. Great neighborhood just 2 blocks from a park for running or walking or (in the summer) swimming. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We feel we found one of the treasures of Alpine, TX! The Hummingbird cottage was so much more than we expected. The owner, Jenny, has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. We forgot to bring our coffee and 1/2&1/2 and there was coffee provided and 1/2 &1/2 in the frig!!!

There is storage everywhere and a washer/dryer for longer stays. It has a nice size bathroom with a huge tub.

After exploring and hiking, it was a great place to return to and nestle in to watch anything we wanted on the direct TV.

We are so happy to have had such a great stay in Alpine!

Perfectly Alpine

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, perfect for two. We enjoyed being close to the Artwalk action without being right in the middle of it. We eat a very low crab, ketogenic diet, so being able to cook a couple of meals in was helpful. Big love to Blue Water Co-op, where we shopped—an amazing selection for a town this size! The bed was very comfortable and the Aveda toiletries were wonderful. The cottage was clean and everything worked great. And anyone who provides a pad of paper and sharpened pencil has my loyalty! Many thanks to our wonderful host.
