_LANGRIDGE LODGE AND THE BLUE ROOM, CLEAN AND QUIET ACCOMMODATION IN
OUR CORNER OF ALPINE, WITH EVERY CHARMING AMENITY WITHIN WALKING
The Blue Room is our second charming quiet studio with a queen size
bed in the beautiful little town of Alpine. Clean, quiet and
comfortable, as pretty as we can make it, the room is a little
sanctuary out here in our far blue mountains. These are the Davis
Mountains, west of Marathon's Glass Mountains, part of the great Rocky
Mountain massif extending west and north into New Mexico and Colorado.
The Blue Room is located at the junction of Highway 90 and Cockrell
Street, on the very corner of Highway 118, which heads down south to
the Big Bend.
The fully-equipped shared kitchen is ready if you wish to cook on
site, store food/drinks in the refrigerator, help yourself to the
Keurig (pods are in your room), etc. Next to the kitchen is the
courtyard, perfect for your morning cup of coffee, breakfast, lunch or
dinner, or an evening cocktail; a firepit is there for warmth in the
cooler months. From there you can hear the bells from Sul Ross up on
We clean only with organic citrus cleaner; no chemicals are used on
the property. Our linens, rugs, etc. are laundered with organic soap
and then aired outside in the sun.
This time of year all of nature can tell that spring is coming: the
mockingbirds are back! Elk can be seen early in the morning in the
wide grassy slopes under the palisades near Fort Davis. Javelina
continue their weekly rounds here in town, looking for pecans; often
there are deer nearby in the early morning and evening. The
morning air is alive with dovesong; hummingbirds have returned. We
have a great new restaurant west of town, "Spicewood" . There will
be a list in your room of local restaurants and notable scenes and
activities around town.
Langridge Lodge and The Blue Room are about an hour from Big Bend
National Park, and already on the road (Hwy. 118).
Alpine's bookshop is within walking distance; just behind it on the
same street is Cedar Coffee, where you can get a good cup of hipster
coffee. Alpine has galleries where local artists, some
internationally known, exhibit, and unique locally-owned shops, most
within walking distance from each other and from our Lodge and The
An array of small restaurants and streetside venders offers a variety
of fresh interesting food in Alpine. Blue Water Natural Foods, just
south of town on Hwy. 118, is an organic-foods grocery; "Porters" is
a well-supplied locally-owned grocery store. Alpine has three or
four charming historic venues for cocktails and conversation, and
our Museum of the Big Bend is a four-block walk up the hill from our
Lodge. Historic Big Bend Saddlery makes real-time cowboy gear and
ships worldwide, as well as famous Spradley cowboy hats, still made by
hand next door to the Saddlery on antique French machinery from the
1800's. In Marfa (where you can see the historic Paisano Hotel (be
sure to walk all the way to the back, to the beautiful open-air
screened pool) you will see the restored Court House and a lot more,
bistros and coffee spots, a charming local museum, lots of galleries.
Fort Davis and Marathon are twenty-five scenic minutes away toward
the north and east. The weather in the Park is ideal just now.
You might like to know that proceeds from our two rooms help support
an orphanage and school in Pakistan, where child victims of religions
violence find refuge, safety and schooling. Our contributions help
pay for buildings, food and clothing, books and supplies, and
medicines, and support the teachers and staff..
