The Hummingbird Cottage was perfect. Great proximity to the town, restaurants and shopping!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend the Hummingbird Cottage in a heartbeat. Very clean, and you have everything you need right there in the vacinity - groceries, restaurants, shopping - and the magnificent Big Bend just an hour and a half away! Jenny was very hospitable, and her dog Lynn is so sweet! We will be sure and stay again whenever we are in the area.

Ahhh...so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Hummingbird Cottage. Why did we come back and stay here? Because it's a FANTASTIC place to stay! Jenny makes it so cozy, inviting, and relaxing. It's a cozy little cottage with wonderful amenities, such as a kitchen stocked with pots and pans, plates, silverware, and more. Jenny provides you with the local coffee, Big Bend Coffee Roasters...so yummy! Did I mention there's a washer and dryer there? I love being able to wash my clothes if needed.

Hummingbird Cottage is located close to downtown - you can walk there! It's also close to Marfa, Fort Davis, Marathon, Big Bend National Park, and more! This is a beautiful part of Texas, one that everyone needs to experience. So, come stay at Hummingbird Cottage and enjoy your time relaxing here!

All the convenience of your personal Tiny House plus an awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We've been visitors in the area for a looooong time, and this friendly spot hit the spot. The cottage has a sensibly equipped kitchen space, so you can make your breakfast, store your lunch fixings, and even make dinner, if you want. Local, excellent coffee included. W/D. Plenty of outlets to charge stuff; cable TV for late night laxness; good internet to use to research local trails. And the host was delightful and helped us research local hiking spots. Comfy and appropriately priced when we were there, and super clean.

Loved This Cottage, Loved Alpine!

  • 5 of 5

Hummingbird Cottage is a great place for two people visiting Alpine. The cottage is well designed, super clean, and very convenient and private. The kitchen is well stocked, the bed was comfortable and we appreciated the off-street parking. Jenny was out of town during our stay, but we did meet one of her friends who was very helpful with recommendations. Alpine is a lovely little town with friendly residents and a laid back attitude. Alpine is worth the trip and is the place to stay in West Texas. We forget how dark skies can really be, but the night sky is incredible out there! It's easy to visit Marfa (doesn't live up to the hype but the courthouse and the Paisano hotel are worth a look) and Fort Davis (loved it!).

We loved staying in this peaceful little cottage. It was perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very charming and nicely decorated, it's very cozy and inviting. We loved curling up in bed after lunch for a quick nap and hearing all the birds chirping outside our window. Everything was working properly and we had everything we might need to cook.

The only downside to cooking is the very sensitive smoke alarm. It went off several times for no apparent reason, but if you leave the door open while cooking you should be fine.
