Located in the heart of downtown Alpine, Texas, this separate, diminutive cottage (1 room and bath) was a teeny office (168sf) back in the day! The bed is only a 3/4 bed( wider than a twin, but lass wide than a double)! This space is tiny and, yes, was photographed with wide angle lens to get the whole room in! It situated downtown, behind the locally owned salon and barber shop, Americana. Enjoy the Backyard, adjacent to the Dragonfly Cottage!

The dragonfly cottage was small as stated, but it was okay-- It was nice to have a mini fridge that kept things cold--The train did not bother me at all.

What a wonderful place! It’s a small one-room cottage, but it’s bright and airy and all I needed to explore Alpine for a couple of days. Place was clean, and it’s RIGHT in the center of town. Check out the restaurant at The Holland Hotel next door and order a chicken fried steak…

I have lived in Alpine for 12 years and LOVE this area! I love hiking in Big Bend, cycling on our open roads and enjoying our beautiful weather, wildlife and all the things that make Alpine a truly unique place. I hope you enjoy Alpine and the Big Bend as much as I do!
