"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!"

"I stayed for a week at Tarantula Ranch and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I have visited the Big Bend area many times and stayed many places and this one is my favorite. It is very quiet and peaceful. The cabin has a rustic charm and beautiful views from every room, especially the bathroom!!! I loved the company of the burros and meeting all of the dogs. Curt was an amazing wealth of knowledge about the area and landscape and all sorts of things. I really enjoyed our conversations. The next time I go back to Big Bend (which will be soon) I will definitely be staying here again!"

"Our family had a wonderful time at Big Bend Getaway. The location can't be beat if you're looking for privacy and a quiet, beautiful landscape. The home was clean and well-appointed and had everything we needed. We loved having breakfast on the screened porch with a beautiful view. Our daughters enjoyed swimming in the lodge pool a few miles away, and we enjoyed dining at the Starlite Cafe in Terlingua Ghost Town. We saw jackrabbits, a snake, roadrunners, and javelinas. We look forward to staying again sometime!"
