The perfect getaway to enjoy magical Marfa! This 2 bedroom, 2 bath, fully furnished and painstakingly updated historic Adobe home is situated on a large quarter acre lot in the heart of downtown Marfa. The location is perfect for walking everywhere - leave that car in the driveway and walk everywhere! This tastefully decorated historic Adobe home sleeps six. The over-sized yard is ideal for entertaining groups large and small. Bring the gathering inside, the table seats 8. Just bring your food and drink, the kitchen has everything you need. The large master bath features the original antique claw foot tub and a large newly added walk in shower. All towels and linens are provided. The living room has comfy furniture including a queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen TV, DVD player and small DVD library. Washer/dryer is located off the Master Bedroom. Iron and ironing board provided.

Relax on the generous wraparound porch, surf the net on the wifi, or buy a book at Marfa Book Company and read while enjoying Marfa's amazing weather.

Day trips might include rafting on the Rio Grande, star parties at the McDonald Observatory, a jaunt to Prada Marfa, hiking in nearby Ft. Davis, spending time at the galleries in town, shopping the shops at the Hotel Paisano right down the street. And don't miss those mysterious Marfa Lights!

Marfa has wonderful dining options at Maiya's, Cochineal, and Future Shark to mention a few of the options.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I love Marfa and can't believe how lucky I am to own a home there. It is incredibly special! My main residence is in Houston, but I spend as much time out there as possible. Managing this property is my full-time job, along with my 5 kids and 3 dogs.

Why the Owner Chose Marfa:
I fell in love with Marfa 20 years ago. I am from Arizona originally and I guess there is a part of me that just loves that high desert climate. The climate in Marfa is amazing, the summer temps even in the hottest part of the year still drop into the 60s at night. The light in Marfa is beautiful. The sunsets, sunrises, the clouds - it is easy to see why artists have been drawn here. It's remoteness is a huge part of the appeal for me and my husband.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is just such a classic. It has beautiful bones, with high ceilings and wonderful windows. The porch is so welcoming. The wood floors are original - worn but with character and beauty. It is cozy yet open and spacious for it's size.
