Historic Gem in Marathon

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to Big Bend and decided to stay in this historic house rather than a hotel. The property was easy to locate and well lit. It was a cold evening and all the gas heaters had been lit before we arrived. The house was well maintained and beautifully decorated. Kitchen was well stocked with everything necessary although we did not do much cooking while we were there. Neighborhood was quiet with an occasional train passing several blocks away but not loud enough to be disruptive. Walking distance to the Gage Hotel restaurant for an elegant dinner as well as a nice coffee bar next door. Overall the house was cozy and a perfect option for exploring the Big Bend area.

Perfect as a base for exploring Big Bend area

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this very well furnished and welcoming house. we arrived to a house that had been prepared for us 9heaters on) on a chilly afternoon in December to find some coffee beans and a grinder ready for us to make Pecan roast coffee. the light coming through the living room windows was magical, and we went for a sumptuous dinner at the Gage hotel. next day was spent exploring marathon (great French Grocer's), and going on a trip to Big Bend and Boquillas Del Carmen. checking out the Dinosaur Dig, and Sam Nail's ranch. We enjoyed cooking our breakfast and dinner in this very well appointed kitchen. just perfect for our family. the boardgames kept us entertained in the evening. there is also star gazing equipment but we didn't get to use it. The many books on the area and local points of interest were handy reading. We explored Marfa and the Chinati foundation the next day.

Wonderful stay!

Excellent place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Nice little home for a vacation. They have taken care of all the details that are needed for a pleasant stay and had all essentials stocked up. Not too far from big bend, location is perfect with a little grocery store close by. We enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to stay again.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the blue green house! It was in a great location close to big bend and it's lack of technology along with the abundance of board games gave us a refreshing break from technology!
