Welcome to Casita Agave, your anchor to the Texas Big Bend Country in Alpine, Texas, where mountains, high plains, and the Chihuahuan desert meet. At nearly a mile elevation with a decidedly temperate climate, visitors will enjoy balmy days and cool nights in this custom-renovated cottage.
Casita Agave’s cozy setting offers a peaceful refuge from big-city living, with all the amenities you need to relax in West Texas style. This adobe cottage sits just four blocks south of Sul Ross State University and within walking/biking distance of stores, restaurants, groceries, and boutiques downtown. A fully stocked kitchen and gas stove await the adventurous cook, while a beautiful back porch features mountain views and great sunsets.
A Texas-style shower will refresh any weary traveler, and the cozy bedroom with cool, blue walls and smooth, hardwood floors welcome you to relax. If cooking isn't your style, you can literally go around the corner for some great Tex-Mex food, or down the street for some more elegant fare. And just for fun, the Murphy Street Raspa Company offers the best choices of ice cream, raspas, and Mexican sodas and candies.
Alpine is located within 30 miles of Marfa (west) and Marathon (east) on Texas 90, and within 30 miles (Hwy 118 north) of Fort Davis, home of the McDonald Observatory. This cozy cottage is 100 miles from the heart of Big Bend and just over an hour’s drive to the Texas-Mexico border.
Whether you’re in the market for hiking, shopping, eating great food, just relaxing in the high Chihuahuan desert, this adobe house is the perfect spot for your getaway.

A home away from home
A home away from home
This cottage is truly a home away from home! We stayed only a short while, but loved how cozy and comfortable this property was. The cottage was tastefully decorated and the kitchen supplied everything we needed. We wondered what a 'Texas style shower' included, and were pleased to find a clean shower with unique style and an excellent shower head. The best part of this cottage was definitely the bed...most comfortable bed I'd slept in (besides my own). I'd definitely recommend this cottage!
