The Blas Payne, named after its original owner, is a 100+ yr. adobe home. Blas Payne was written up by the Houston Chronicle as "the best cowboy in West Texas.
Over the year the home has been lovingly rennovated. All the ceilings have been raised and some of the corrugated metal was reused from the roof of the home. The redo on the 2nd bedroom now allows guests to see the original exposed adobe walls. The bathroom has been totally reconfigured with a beautiful slate tile shower and all new fixtures. A feature of the home is art from local artists showcased throughout the home. The outdoor slate patio and deck are a great place to see the sunrise and sunset and the darkest skies anywhere. There is a family of hummingbirds that visit the property due to the many heritage plants that have survived over the years and give beautiful blooms in the yard.
The Blas Payne is within walking distance to the downtown area of Marathon and 5 miles from the post park.
Marathon is only 39 miles from the entrance to Big Bend Park.
The Blas Payne has all amenities necessary for guests to enjoy cooking, catching up on email and just relaxing. There are many books for your reading pleasure and Marathon has a wonderful library where you can check out books, check the local activities and immerse yourself in the small town atmosphere.
