Recent Marathon property reviews


    "I am a city girl who laughs hysterically at the idea of living so far away from... well my comfort zone. Spent the whole time hiking big bend and touring surrounding areas finding myself saying I could honestly live in Marathon all because of this flippen house. SHEEEYAT! I even digged the boots. Loved waking up drinking tea in the dining area while a good friend of mine sat on the porch doing stuff on her laptop as I updated my facebook status... ja ja ja or was that pinterest? Point is, I am in love and speechless about this place. My 13 year old wasn't even bored in finding something to do. I bow to my knees in knowing this house was restored and exist. THANK YOU .. THANK YOU... THANK YOU!"

  • Casa La Vista

    "Casa La Vista is a true beauty. The house is just as it looks in the photos and you are provided with everything that you need. The house is clean and well-maintained and you will leave wishing that you didn't have to. The sunrise and sunsets are magnificent and the night skies are breathtaking. I highly recommend spending an entire week there if not more. My family was there for a week over New Years, second year in a row, and hope to continue the tradition."

  • Great Place to stay in Marathon

    "We stayed in the Rancho Villa for a week between July 14- and July 21. We had the most amazing weather for July (overcast and 75 oF for the entire week). The house is neat and very tastefully decorated.The photo on vrbo are accurate. There is 3 bedroom, two with large queen size bed and the third one with 4 bunk beds for kids. There is a folding baby playpen/beds. The house was very clean. The back patio and the outside dinning area are very pleasant. We had a few game of horseshoe in the back at sunset. The outdoor shower is a plus! It was very easy to communicate with Laura, the owner. Overall a great experience. We'll definitely stay again there soon."

  • perfection

    "This house was our headquarters for a motorcycle tour of the Big Bend. So comfortable and welcoming. The house was absolutely charming but our favorite spot was the front porch on the east side. We spent many hours out there planning the next day's ride. Thank you, Janet, for being such a great hostess and caretaker of this home. It really was perfect for us."

You can then visit these locations, including the Old Water Tower, Roping Arena, Marathon Cemetery, and Post Park, the abandoned ruins of a fort. They're all within minutes of your Big Bend Country lodging.
