  • Great "Home Base" for Big Bend Family Vacation

    "This vacation home was the perfect fit for our family vacation in the Big Bend Area. It's a pleasant <10 mile drive south of Alpine and just enough off the road to give spectacular views and peace and quiet. We had everything we needed for the retreat that we were looking for--quaint, spacious, updated house with beautiful features and very nice touches, close enough to sites and shopping, but far enough away for quiet and stargazing (or moon gazing) at night. During our week, we visited the Museum of the Big Bend (at Sul Ross State University), the observatory at Ft. Davis, the swimming hole at Balmorhea, Marfa (of course), ghost town at Terlingua, Lajitas (with the goat mayor), Big Bend State Park, and Big Bend National Park. Alpine (closest town to the house) is plenty big for everything we needed (groceries, drugstore, etc.), and has its own charm and character as well, with plenty of local favorites (CowDog!) and interesting sites to see. We were pleasantly surprised to see not only fresh-picked flowers put out for us at the house, but also fresh eggs from Marfa. We felt like we had been welcomed into a friend's home, not some anonymous hotel. We made plenty of use of the games, books, and cookware provided (and learned to wonder how we had made it this far in life without a cast iron griddle). We would return to this retreat in a heartbeat, and are already trying to figure out when we can make that happen!"

  • Comfortable and beautifully decorated

    "Lovely old house with wonderful decorations at every turn. Kitchen was well equipped and clean. The grounds were lovely. The only suggestions I would have would be to provide more surfaces in the bathrooms to put cosmetics and toothbrushes, etc. We have to use the window sills and borrow a table from the entryway. Also, it smelled dusty inside...probably due to the many small decorations that collected dust. Uneven floors kept us on our toes! All in all, we had a great time in Alpine and Big Bend."
