Star-gazing at the Indian Lodge in the Davis Mountains | West Texas

All we needed was one night, but I could have stayed forever.

Indian Lodge is positioned perfectly within the Davis Mountain National Park. I booked a stay at the Indian Lodge based off of google photos, unaware of what I was in for.  All I can say is this place far exceeded my expectations.

We arrived late at night, when the temperatures had dipped pretty low. Even though the sky was black, we could tell that this place would be breathtaking by morning.

We couldn’t help but notice the amount of stars in the sky as we walked across the property. The sky was glittering with stars. It was just insane. So of course, we grab my blanket and headed to a rooftop to stargaze. 

Within 5 minutes, we saw 3 falling stars and 1 shooting star. I was SO hype! haha. Never in my life had I seen a single shooting star, let alone 3. We saw galaxies, clusters, and twinkling stars. This is sight that really put things into perspective. 

In the morning, we wandered around the grounds and were amazed at our surroundings. I honestly haven’t seen Mountains in Texas so this was such pleasant surprise. 

The white adobe at Indian Lodge reminded me so much of Greece, without the water of course. And I loved it. The morning was quiet and peaceful, which made me so grateful to be there. I’d recommend getting there asap and booking early! We absolutely loved it! They have a couple of hikes & its worth the stop before heading to Marfa!
