For guest accommodations – we usually recommend the cutest BnB 12 minutes away in Comfort. Their property has 32 rooms and many beds – some regular hotel rooms and some are actual homes onsite. That BnB also has another property nearby with 9 more rooms – a couple of which are remodeled airstream trailers! Meyer Bed and Breakfast & Camp Comfort.
