"We had wonderful stay for a long weekend getaway. We were really surprised to find such a great place in the middle of the dessert. The property is inviting and private. The front porch has incredible views and a great place to enjoy meals and the sunrise/sunset. There is plenty of nice hiking on the property. The trip to Terlingua and Lajitas for dinner is short, as is the entrance to the National Park. There is lots of room in the kitchen and the bathrooms and the kitchen has all the amenities you could need. The rooms are all very clean with comfortable beds. I can't say enough nice things about the place!"

"We had a girls weekend hiking Big Bend and relaxing at the Getaway. The location is great; it's a bit of a drive to the park, but coming home at the end of the day, showering, and sitting on the porch relaxing and watching the sunset, then stars, then sunrise, was great. The house is furnished very comfortably; I was very happy that the AC units had been turned on before we arrived! It was a wonderful place to spend the weekend and we would all love to return. Thank you!"

"My husband and I love this home. This was our second stay at Calamity Creek and won't be our last! Well kept home just 10 minutes outside of Alpine - very private and the scenery is breathtaking.
We trailered our Harley Davidson's out to the Big Bend area and this property provides a wonderful "home base" after a long day of riding. Kathryn and her husband are wonderful hosts. Upon our arrival, there were local eggs and apples in the kitchen and the peach tree on the property was loaded down! Advice booking ahead - this was our third year to come to the area and it was already booked for the dates we desired in 2014."
