Originally built in 1898 as a summer home by the Spencer Gregg family, the Webster house was purchased by John Webster in 1917 and remained in his family for three generations. Even today, it still has the original fireplaces and wood floors. The spacious bedrooms, high ceilings, and over-the-door transoms give the house an open, welcoming feeling, and it can easily accommodate a large family or group of fellow travelers. You can relax on the front porch under century-old pines, or enjoy desert plantings in the garden while sitting on the bench looking over Sleeping Lion Mountain. Explore the Davis Mountains State Park, just down the road from the Fort Davis Historical Site, and on the way to the amazing McDonald Observatory where the views are great, the skies are dark, and the stars are stunning. Fine dining and interesting shops are all within a 2-block stroll of the house, and the nearby towns of Marfa and Alpine are each only a 20-minute drive away.
Please note that the Big Bend National park is a good 2 hours drive away so makes for a very long day if you are planning to get down and explore or hike and back.
