  • 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!"

  • Very nice

    "This was my 5th trip to Terlingua/Big Bend. This was easily the nicest place I have stayed in the area. The accommodations are nice and clean, the price is affordable, and the owners are pet friendly. I will stay again in the future."

  • Excellent!!!

    "I was worried about accommodating 4 adults- especially in the kitchen. However, this place had everything one would need to simply have a fantastic time. A blender and margarita salt were among the things I was very suprised to find in the kitchen. The place was very thoughtfully designed and clean - even in the bathroom the host provided us with earth friendly body care products. It is also in a great location. Though you are literally in the middle of nowhere with Internet connection at your fingertips, in less than 30 minutes you can get to a nearby town that has a grocery store that carries even vegan and gluten-free products, a couple of restaurants, and a gas station. We can't wait to go back there again next year!"

  • A Thanksgiving to Remember

    "Thanks to Ellie and Casa Riata, we had a home away from home where two families had a blessed Thanksgiving with their Fort Bliss soldiers and their battle buddies who were unable to go home for Thanksgiving! It's a bit of a drive to Fort Bliss, but it's very easy and well worth every mile! The house is very clean and well stocked, and we were able to provide a full Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings for 13 as well as many other meals throughout the week. There is plenty of room inside and out for fun and relaxation! Thank you so much for giving us a Thanksgiving we will never forget! PS - Don't miss Cattleman's Steakhouse while you are there!"
