Come stay at our lovely home in Calamity Creek at an elevation of nearly a mile high in the most beautiful land in Texas. Enjoy breathtaking views from the hammocks on our wraparound porch of Cathedral Mountain, McIntyre Peak and Mount Ord. Located just 12 minutes south of Alpine, 45 minutes from Marfa, an hour from the McDonald Observatory and 2 hours from Big Bend National Park, there is plenty of exploring for our guests. Or stay put and enjoy the fresh breeze, sunny skies and starlit nights. Our home is pleasingly remote without a neighbor in view. The home is a half mile from the highway by way of a dirt road situated on 20 acres with several trails for hours of walking and hiking. We pride ourselves on our cool and refreshing, sweet well water. During your visit, you can take in magnificent sunsets and are sure to catch sight of wildlife from antelope and deer to javelina and birds. Depending on the season, the landscape is also full of butterflies, lizards, crickets and wildflowers. And if you’re lucky, you might even see the Marfa lights from the swing on the front porch. Really! We’ve seen ‘em!
The house itself has two bedrooms downstairs, one with a full-size bed, one with a queen, a bathroom, kitchen, and great room with vaulted ceilings and windows all around to take in the mountain views. Upstairs is a loft that can sleep two and/or be used as an office. There is a separate casita with an additional bathroom and shower, laundry facilities and a queen-sized bed.
