About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Wonderful home, built in 2017, nestled into a gentle valley bordering the Christmas Mountains. Get away from everything with incredible, always-changing views in all directions, while still enjoying many modern amenities and easy access to Terlingua Ranch Headquarters, the surrounding towns, and Big Bend National Park.

Sunrise Ridge is designed to be open and welcoming, maximizing comfort and offering multiple outdoor spaces that connect you with the magic of the Chihuahuan Desert. An enormous covered porch with stunning views of the Corazones Peaks often offers a breeze even in the warmest months, inviting you to relax in a rocking chair or nap in the double hammock. French doors lead to a cozy screened porch in back with lovely views into the Christmas Mountains. Inside, high ceilings, Saltillo tile floors and exposed wooden beams in the spacious living room provide an attractive space to sit and socialize or simply relax and read when you're not out exploring the area. Central air-conditioning and ceiling fans keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Across an amazing granite-topped island, the modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher. And it's fully stocked with all the equipment you need, whether putting together snacks for a hike or cooking dinner for everyone. An outdoor gas grill is also available for use.

Two bedrooms occupy the back of the house, each with access to an outdoor porch. One contains a queen bed and the other has two twin beds, all with Tuft and Needle custom foam mattresses. In the living room is a sofa bed for an extra sleeping space. Like the living room, each bedroom has its own individually-controlled central A/C and ceiling fan to keep things comfortable. A Jack-and-Jill bathroom offers privacy for each bedroom's residents, with a large Saltillo tile shower in the middle.

A mile away from the closest neighbor, Sunrise Ridge offers sublime quiet and solitude. From the moment, the sun comes up over the eastern ridge of the valley, which has a pristine view of the Chisos Mountains and Big Bend National Park, the desert valley comes alive with wildlife and color, and there's enough space for hours of hiking to enjoy it all. As evening approaches, enjoy magnificent displays of shifting color and light as the sun sets on the other side of the valley, making way for a night so bright with stars that the Milky Way literally lights up the desert.

From Sunrise Ridge, you are well-positioned for day trips across the West Texas area. To the North, you can drive to Fort Davis and the McDonald Observatory, Marfa and the Chinati Art Foundation, or Alpine and Sul Ross University's Museum of the Big Bend. Drive south and you'll find Terlingua Ghost Town, the south entrance to Big Bend National Park (about 50 minutes away), and the Big Bend Ranch State Park. Closer to home, about two miles from the house, is Terlingua Ranch Headquarters, where you can cool off in the swimming pool or grab some grub and maybe some live music at the Bad Rabbit Cafe, before retreating back to the valley and the quiet of your desert home.

Being isolated doesn't mean being out of touch, though, and Sunrise Ridge has wifi internet and a land line phone service to keep you plugged in, should you need it when you're not taking in all the other marvels that the Chihuahuan Desert and West Texas have to offer. We welcome you to share in the wonders of this unique and restorative place.

A peaceful desert retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The area is sparsely populated, and the natural beauty of the area makes the drive worth it. The house is immaculate and very well designed for guests. I had a hard time cleaning the cookware since I'm used to non-stick pans, but the kitchen is great and there is ample counter space to work with. The home is very comfortable, and the decor is both attractive and practical. I really appreciated the amount of effort the owners put into gathering information for guests. The packet I received before the trip was very detailed and provided guidance about how to handle the logistics necessary for staying in such a remote area. Planning ahead is key to a successful trip and they provide the tools so you can do it effectively.

Amazing house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sunrise Ridge. The house is perfect with every detail covered. Thankful that the property is dog friendly. Our 2 pups loved to explore the area around the house. We watched every sunset from the front porch. We'll stay here again next time we're in the area. Thank you!

Great Property for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped house in a beautiful location. Well off the beaten track and I agree with other reviews that it's best approached the first time during the day. It's about an hours drive to Big Bend NP, but we felt it was worth the drive to stay in such a nice home for a few days. In fact our favorite day was when we just hung around, walked the property, and enjoyed the views.
