3 Bedroom, 3 Bath And A Loft With Mountain Views
'On the Rocks', our mountain getaway, is located just southeast of Fort Davis on top of a scenic bluff overlooking beautiful Muzquiz Canyon and Mitre Peak of the Davis Mountains. There are porches on all four sides of the house, each with its own view of West Texas. We are less than 10 minutes from the history of Fort Davis, 25 minutes from the art galleries of Marfa, and 20 minutes from Alpine, making it easy to explore what makes each town unique.The master bedroom has a king bed with its own fireplace and bathroom. One guestroom has a king bed and the other a queen, each with their own bathroom. There is also a loft with two twin beds with access from the west bedroom.
Hardwood floors, cedar ceiling and non-mortared rock construction with a basement dug into the side of the bluff on which the house sits, make for a very comfortable stay throughout the year. Central a/c and heat were added early 2012, along with all new stainless appliances.
The house offers two fireplaces, both gas ignited, along with full amenities. Trophies of magnificent elk, audad sheep and deer adorn the walls. 360 views, porches at every bedroom.

About Stormie McEntire
The house was built by my father, Dr. Royce Read, in the mid 1980's as a second home away from Lufkin, Texas. He gifted it to me in 2012 and my husband and I have been updating it since. John and I live in San Antonio, Texas with our 2 children, Cuate and Ada. It is our hope that others can enjoy our west Texas hideaway as much as we do.
Stormie McEntire purchased this House in 1983

Great property. Comfortably furnished. Spectacular view day & night!
We enjoyed the many nearby adventures and were always happy to return to our getaway "On the Rocks".
Great Cabin and really comfortable. Outstanding views of the Fort Davis Area!
Check in and check out were really easy!
Exceeds expectations by bringing breathtaking views indoors
Perfect space for three couples to enjoy Ft. Davis! My husband and I brought both sets of parents to visit West Texas with us. The house is easy to access and has rewarding wildlife and dessert-scapes (is that a word?) from every single side of the house. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and patio access. Deer and bird watching replaces the need for tv. BUT if it's, for example, an important sporting weekend, the house has satellite tv with excellent picture quality and a stunning number of channels for every sport ever. The porch is relaxing, the star gazing is incredible, and the house is inviting. I cannot recommend enough.
Gorgeous & extremely peaceful
This home was the perfect place for a quiet getaway. This is a lovely house with amazing views. We very much enjoyed relaxing on the patio in the morning with our coffee & in the evening with a glass of wine. During the day we enjoyed exploring Marfa & Big Bend National Park (which is well worth the drive). I believe my favorite part of the house though, was watching the family of deer that visited the front yard every morning. My only complaint is the lack of window coverings on the doors in the master bedroom. It’s extremely dark around the property at night & having those windows open was just a little unnerving.
Loved the views from both front (sunset) and back porch sitting on rocking enjoying sunrise
A great stay while attending my son's wedding in Fort Davis.
A great property!
We enjoyed our stay in the "Cabin on the Rocks". The views from both sides were great! Every day began and ended with time in the rocking chairs on the back deck. The house had all that we needed and more. Great layout, beds and fully equipped kitchen. We visited Ft. Davis, Alpine and Marfa during our stay - this house was perfectly situated for that. Any thing that came up in our stay was quickly addressed by the rental agent. We would highly recommend this property! It was the easiest "check out" of any VRBO property we have ever had.
In the vicinity is Davis Mountain State Park, Big Bend National Park, and Balmoreah State Park lending access to most of what West Texas has to offer. CAUTION: Due to drought there is a burn ban in effect, so please no open fires.
