Trek Southwest - Hiking and Camping the Desert Southwest

Hideaway in Dell City, Texas – Near Guadalupe Mountains

in Guadalupe Mountains Area

If you’re planning a trip to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park and you don’t want to camp in a tent or stay at the tourist trap in White’s City, Dell City, Texas is a good option. It’s almost an hour drive (everything is an hour drive) from the main entrance to the park, but it’s a beautiful drive.

We stayed at a little rental property in this quiet little farming community, and loved every minute of it. You can see more details or book it here on VRBO.

It’s not a five-star hotel, but it’s all you’ll need after a long day on your feet.

 

The building looks like an ancient adobe structure that has been renovated to become a small bed and breakfast. We stayed in the larger blue building. There’s another small building on the property that has a laundromat if you need it.

The rooms aren’t all that big, but the 14 foot ceiling will keep you from feeling boxed in. The shower was very nice and roomy with great water pressure. The toilet area leaves a bit to be desired with the only thing separating you from the bedroom being a curtain, but it’s manageable.

The courtyard area was nice, especially with the dining table outside on the porch. Morning was great sitting there in the cool air and reading a book.

Dell City - Graves in the back yard

Graves… Interesting, but I’m hoping there aren’t people in there.

One of the best surprises when we stayed in Dell City was the local cafe, Spanish Angels.

I grew up in West Texas, and I like to think that I know good Mexican Food when I see it. This is some of the best I’ve had in some time. It takes them a little while to serve it after you order, but good food ain’t quick.

You’ll see their little restaurant on the right side of Main Street on the North side of town. They open early and serve late seven days a week. Tip well, these ladies work hard.
