Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay in the house. It's a wonderful place to stay in Fort Davis. Our favorite part of the house is the front porch where the whole family can sit and talk. I'm sure we'll be staying there again soon.

I did not expect this house to be as beautiful as it was. Everything was provided for us so that he had q comfortable stay. It's the perfect place to get away with your significant other and relax. The bathroom in suite 3 is to die for. We will be coming back for sure..:)

Beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this lovely house justice! Staying here was like stepping back in time, but with modern creature comforts. We really enjoyed the beautiful, bright kitchen, the shady porch that was cool and pleasant even in the middle of a July afternoon, and the natural scenery that surrounds the home. Mary could not have been a better hostess; she answered emails and phone calls immediately, and was waiting on us upon our arrival. Excellent experience!

The worst part about this place was having to leave! Clean, quiet, relaxing, beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute trip so hotels were all booked up for spring break. I called Mary and had us a place booked in minutes and reasonably prized! Our 8 & 10 yr olds were content to just stay there climbing on the rocks and rocking on the porch. Beautifully decorated to match the era of the home, clean, and VERY spacious suites made it much more comfortable than any hotel room could ever provide. Mary was attentive to our arrival so not to miss us, and checked on us during our stay! She was honest and informative about our room and it's amenities as well. Located close enough to walk to the main drag of town and just a short car ride to the entrance to the Natl park entrance. Perfect location to have it all! We truly hated to leave this beautiful place and can't wait to return again soon!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The Trueheart Home is an exceptional place to stay. It is the perfect choice in Fort Davis for lovers of historic homes like myself. Stained glass, lovely lighting, wood floors, and huge windows compliment the house. The suites are roomy and beautifully decorated. The entire home is spotless. One cannot ask for more fabulous grounds - wrap around porch, patios, and awesome boulders in the large yard. It is one of my top 10 enjoyable retreats. We cannot wait to visit again. Mary is a great hostess and extremely accommodating.
