"We stayed here for three nights while we explored Marfa and the surrounding areas. This casita is wonderful, everything we'd hoped for and more. The furnishings are great and the owner has chosen wonderful art pieces. Good hot shower, comfortable bed, good lounging living room. It was cold outside, but we stayed cozy. I would definitely stay here again."

"The house was perfect for us! Great location - easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and galleries. Very clean, comfortable and well decorated. We really enjoyed hanging out in the courtyard and cooking together. Genevieve was a joy to work with! We can't wait to come back for another visit to Marfa and the Colomo House."

"This house was GREAT!! I rented it because we had a lot of family coming into town for my son's graduation from Sul Ross and because I needed a kitchen so that I could do some baking and cook a meal for the reception. The house was a perfect place for everyone to gather at. Plenty of room in the house. The place was nice and clean. The owner was very nice and accommodating. I loved the "old" feeling about the house. The only recommendation I would make to the owner is; it would be nice if you put a regular bed in the third bedroom and put the futon in the large bedroom, or upgrade your air mattress. Luckily I brought my own air mattress. Other than that this is a great place to stay."

"We visit west Texas frequently, usually staying in Fort Davis and Marathon. This time we had only a few days, but a great need for peace and quiet. The McGonagill house gave us that. Although just off the highway, it was mostly very quiet and private. My wife grew up in a house by a railroad tracks, so the occasional train was an enjoyable reminder of childhood. The shady porch, off a large yard with mature trees and shrubs, was lovely place to sip tea and read or watch the birds flitting through the sprinklers. The AC-cooled interior was welcome in the heat of the July afternoon. In cooler seasons, the screened doors and windows could be opened for good ventilation. The kitchen provided the basics we needed to prepare meals (we brought our own blender for smoothies), and we could watch the hummingbirds at the feeder outside the kitchen window while we ate. We used the master bedroom, which has a comfortable king bed. Showers worked well in both bathrooms.
In the cool of the morning and evening we rode our bicycles around town, stopping to take in the wide mountain/desert vistas from the high points on Avenue D. At night the stars blazed against the dark sky; Scorpio was particularly beautiful.
Thanks to Janet for her friendliness and concern for our comfort, and for sharing her lovely home."
