This cottage is adorable - bright, cheerful, cozy, private. We felt totally at home.

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird Cottage is an enchanting getaway. There are lots of windows making the space bright with natural light and cheerful. And there are real hummingbirds. The owner, Jenny, has provided a hummingbird feeder on the covered porch. She has also planted sage in front which attracts the birds as well. There is a full kitchen and even a washer and dryer. The space is truly (I'll repeat myself) enchanting. Jenny is a sweetheart and will go out of her way to make your stay delightful. She responds very quickly to emails and even assisted me with an online booking hiccup (my fault) while she was vacationing in Europe. The only downside for us was dealing with the feeling of sadness when we had to leave.

The best kept secret in Alpine

  • 5 of 5

In one word - fabulous. Jenny has thought of everything. We had our own fully furnished cottage (spotless), and were able to bring our seven-month-old puppy to stay with us, too. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. The Hummingbird is perfect for a couple, close to downtown and a perfect home base to visit Marfa, Ft. Davis, McDonald Observatory and the Big Bend National Park. Thank you, Jenny, for making our stay so comfortable.
