Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The hummingbird cottage was a perfect getaway for us and a great place to have as a central hub to visit Big Bend, Marfa and all Alpine. The cottage is equipped with everything you would need or want. It is very cozy, comfortable and quiet!

We just loved our stay here and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. We appreciate cleanliness and the cottage was very clean and well furnished.

While staying in Alpine we were blown away by the Reata restaurant, and I have to say it was one of the best places we have ever eaten.

wonderful stay at the hummingbird cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cute and clean! Has full kitchen with complimentary delicious coffee. Using the laundry facilities was very convenient during our stay. Jenny was a great hostess and allowed my pet to join our stay which was nice. Would have loved to stay longer and will recommend to others.

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my stay was perfect. Very comfortable, very clean, very convenient. Jenny has thought of so many details. I especially appreciated the fantastic local coffee, the Aveda toiletries and Tom's toothpaste she provided. A very nice touch. Great neighborhood just 2 blocks from a park for running or walking or (in the summer) swimming. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We feel we found one of the treasures of Alpine, TX! The Hummingbird cottage was so much more than we expected. The owner, Jenny, has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. We forgot to bring our coffee and 1/2&1/2 and there was coffee provided and 1/2 &1/2 in the frig!!!

There is storage everywhere and a washer/dryer for longer stays. It has a nice size bathroom with a huge tub.

After exploring and hiking, it was a great place to return to and nestle in to watch anything we wanted on the direct TV.

We are so happy to have had such a great stay in Alpine!
