  • 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!"

  • West Texas Thanksgiving

    "What a beautiful home in charming Marathon, Texas! My husband, parents, and I had a wonderful four night stay over Thanksgiving. The views were amazing and we spent a lot of time on the large covered patio taking in the sights. The home is well designed, very clean, and the kitchen has ample area in which to cook if you are so inclined. Our two small dogs also loved the house and the outside areas. The house is sited in such a way as to give guests maximum privacy, but is close enough (for walkers and runners) to easily get into town without a car. We loved the proximity of this house (and Marathon) to Big Bend, Alpine, and other nearby areas of interest. Finally, I would be remiss if I said nothing of Tom and Klemie, our hosts. They left a handwritten letter and delicious local coffee for our arrival, communicated promptly with us during the rental process, and made themselves available for assistance during our stay. If we are in this area of Texas again, we would love to return!"

    "Great house! 4 Spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large laundry/utility room. Kitchen was fully stocked, fenced yard made it suitable for pets. The house was clean and pictures are accurate. The owner was timely with communication and check in/out procedures. We will definitely return again soon!"

  • 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!"
