Terlingua lodge description

Terlingua House is located in the heart of the desert mountain country of West Texas. For the price of a nice single hotel room, this unique guesthouse is like having your own personal lodge for your trip. It is a three-bedroom, two-bath, adobe-style property located two miles west of Terlingua, Texas between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park.

This safe and secure 15 acre, semi-secluded property with easy access, has a grand view of the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park while still being only minutes away from restaurants and local river rafting, hiking, biking and jeep tour outfitters.

Pricing is based on two factors: (1) occupancy - how many of you there are; and (2) season - the time of year. For 6 or more people during high season this runs about $50 per person per night before taxes. For 4 people it is under $75 per person per night. Please see specials below for discounted pricing.

The base price for Terlingua House is $245/night with a two-night minimum for up to 6 people. For groups over 6 add $45 per night for each additional person 10 years old and older. There is an additional one time cleaning and restocking fee of $100 up to 6 plus $15 for each additional occupant. This includes all three bedrooms and the kitchen. Chili Cookoff week (first week in November) is $300/night base price with a 5-night minimum. This is a little over $50 per person per night for 6 before taxes. Sorry, no pets, horses, firearms or ATV's.

Specials:

One Free Night: In January, after the New Year's Holiday, February, May, June & July with every two-night rental, you get one night free. This equates to about $33 per person per night for groups of 6 or more and about $50 per person per night for 4 people - all before taxes.

Two Free Nights: In August, September and the first two weeks of December for every two nights you rent, you get two nights free. For 6 or more this is about $25/person per night. For 4 people it is under $40/person per night, again all before taxes.

For exact pricing and reservations please call. Reservations more than a year in advance are always welcome.

Please visit our Availability Calendar (link to the right) and Web Site at TerlinguaHouse for more information. When ready to make reservations please call 325-473-4400. Normal business hours is prefered.

Go and enjoy!
