Terlingua recreational vehicle description

Stay with us and see what Grandma was so thrilled about, located in the heart of the Historic Terlingua Ghost Town, 1/4 mile off Hwy 170, our 1970s Airstream travel trailer, we call Josephine after a Great Aunt, is all decked out for your visit. With a complete kitchen and bath, all the linens, an extra cozy hand made Afgan and an antique down comforter for the full size bed, any utensils for cooking you could need, or perhaps you would like to use the outdoor gas grill ( located in the Hobbit House Pavilion ) to whip up a juicy steak. Sit in antique outdoor rockers by your fire pit and feed Quail and Dove morning and nite, walk up to THE PORCH for a cool drink and listen to live music or dine in the Historic Starlight Theater. our Airstream is comfy and handy.
So head to the most unique vacation rental around, rustic and ready for you.
You and yours will have room to stretch & lot's to do.
With many dirt roads to walk you don't have to be a hiker to see it all. Just pack your bags and some groceries, ( bring your own fire wood/ or you can purchase from us.) we will provide the rest.

Car: Recommended

The Terlingua Ghost Town offers a central jumping off point for hiking, biking, motor cycling, horseback riding, shopping , galleries, live music, or watching the sun set in the east. This is an old mining town that offers, an insight into West Texas's past, our church has been restored and is often used for weddings. We love wandering the entire area and taking in the sights.
