About Lorri Kershner

I have owned my houses in Marfa for eight years. I love it. I am a designer from California, and I can't get enough of Marfa:

the landscape, the art, the culture, the people. Most people who come for the first time return again and again.

Lorri Kershner purchased this house in 2007

Why Lorri Kershner chose Big Bend Country

Marfa is peaceful. It's the perfect retreat. I have made lasting friends here; the people I have met are incredibly creative, hospitable, interesting, and intelligent. Many writers, artists and film makers have stayed in my house and enjoyed an abundance of creative energy, as I do when I come to Marfa. I am at once stimulated and relaxed here.

What makes this house unique

I love hearing doves when I wake up in the morning. Marfa Coffee Roasting makes delicious coffee. If I walk to breakfast I will always see someone I know. Morning walks always bring up antelope, javelinas, hawks, vultures, and many birds. Everything is within five minutes.

Great stay at Marfa Casita

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great stay at the Marfa Casita. We spent four days here over Thanksgiving. The kitchen was well outfitted so that we were able to fix a nice holiday meal. The weather was fairly cold when we were there and the wall-mounted gas heaters kept us toasty warm throughout the entire home. Marfa Casita is a good home base location for enjoying Marfa and as well as for making day trips to Big Bend and Fort Davis. Highly recommend!

Casita Bonita

We had a great getaway at the best casita in Marfa! Wine on the porch was the perfect start to our exploration. So much fun, so comfortable and the owner is so gracious.....we will certainly return.

Perfect Marfa Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this Casita over Labor Day and had the best time! The house was perfect for the two of us, and was in close proximity to all that Marfa has to offer. We absolutely loved it!

There is not central AC, but the window unit and fans were perfect for the Texas heat. If you have a couple of more friends joining you, there is plenty of room to sleep 4 comfortably.

Wonderful casita

  • 5 of 5

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.

This experience was everything it was advertised to be. The house has an atmosphere that is pleasant and peaceful. Dealing with the owner went so well. We would definitely rent this home again. Loved Marfa!

Enjoyed this Marfa Casita!

  • 5 of 5

Refreshing and striking ... we enjoyed our sojourn off the beaten path (state highway 90 is a respite taking you away from I-10!) in Marfa. The art (Chinati was the highlight, but so much more to heighten the senses) was breathtaking, the West Texas landscape stretching into infinity allowed expansion of lungs. Whew. My sister and I hope to return to Marfa and to this comfortable casita. As mentioned, it is refreshing and striking. Clean, amenities as described, as pictured but much more ... the artwork, the thoughtful touches, the colors ... all you would need in the kitchen and a shower that nicely defied our doubts when we looked at what we wrongly felt was odd plumbing; felt great! Great, easy, comfortable communications with the owner ... clean, maintained ... recommend highly! We were 2 sisters, over 59 ... just what we needed. The Casita is not right downtown but definitely within many walking paths en route to downtown, etc. Shake it up, see different things coming & going! You could even easily walk to Chinati though we drove over ... saw some folks biking around town and ... possibly providing bikes would be a crowning touch? But still perfect without ... thank you, for having the lovely foresight to refurbish this adobe casa ... much to say ... stepping into its physically & artfully decorated cool interior from a warm day & the road was refreshing! We'd love to return ...
