Dream Come True
It was perfect!!
This hidden mountainside retreat was an amazing property with all of the high end amenities yet the warmth of home. It had everything we hoped for. The views from each of the verandas were spectacular. The sunrise over the mountains... visible from every room. The fresh Fall air, open doors, nice breezes throughout were delightful. There were several comfortable gathering rooms... plenty of space to spread out and relax.
Garrick was amazing!!... more of a concierge that a property manager. His attention to detail is second to none. He greeted us, helped unpack, and give us the tour. He welcomed us with fresh fruits and vegetables from the orchard and garden on property. He was very responsive to questions. He made great recommendations on activities and restaurants! He even facilitated having Missy, a local chef, prepare delicious meals in house. Her preparation was superb. Presentation and service to the dining room was on point. The meals were spectacular... and she was just delightful. I highly recommend her tenderloin!
The location of this glorious hideaway was perfectly nestled between Fort Davis and Marfa. Access was easy in both directions. The sky was dark and stars prolific. The fire pit and outside dining area facilitated many lingering breakfasts.
I could honestly go on and on about this one.
We WILL be back!!
Thank you for this awesome review! This is what we strive to create for our guests and absolutely do hope you return again and again. We enjoy some of the darkest skies in Texas and in the USA thanks to McDonald Observatory, located in the Davis Mountains, and both Big Bend Ranch State Park and Big Bend National Park being designated as International Dark Sky Parks. And we generally have more moderate temperatures year round than any other part of the state. We also agree that Missy's tenderloin is the bomb!
Gorgeous Home and Views
We felt like we were living on top of the world. The views and cool breezes were incredibly relaxing. Property manager lives on property and was very helpful. Wildlife and beauty everywhere. Great location between Marfa and Ft Davis made it convenient to restaurants, parks, observatory and hiking. We had a great stay and didn’t want to leave !!
Guests like Ed & his family are what make us strive to make Mountain Shadow Ranch better... Let us do the same for you...
Gorgeous home! Incredible views. Excellent service. Garrick catered to our every need —reservations, hiking and outdoor adventures recommendations. Just enjoyed the tranquility and beauty of this home. Outdoor areas were very peaceful and relaxing. Great stay.
Thanks for the great review! We strive to make our guests stay as personal and enjoyable as possible & look forward to your next visit
The location is truly great as you are in close proximity to both Marfa & Fort Davis.
The house is located on the top of the hill. It gives the full privacy + the best views during the day with the best ”Marfa Lights” experience at night.
The house itself just breathtaking.
We felt as we were staying in a gorgeous castle.
The kitchen is fully equipped. It's was a pleasure to prepare a meal there.
Our lovely host Garrick greeted us upon arrival and provided the full house tour.
He was very attentive & responded immediately to any questions we had.
The cleanliness of the house was immaculate.
The host thought about anything we may need during our stay.
The attention to details inside of the house, such as fresh flowers, rare art books, local refreshments brought a really nice touch.
We spent time relaxing on the balcony during our stay.
We saw lots of wild animals, such as rabbits, deer, black wild pigs on a super safe distance.
We really enjoyed grilling out at the back patio & sitting around the outdoor fireplace having an after dinner drink at night.
If you are looking for a luxurious getaway in West Texas, this property is for you!
I would recommend it to everyone who is coming to the Marfa area to relax & to have a great time.
Thank you for the awesome review! It’s a pleasure when the guests are as wonderful as the place. Please visit us again soon! Garrick
If you want luxury and privacy, this is it!
This breath taking home sits on a mountain and has spectacular views. The house itself was incredible but what really made our stay special was the on property manager ( Garrick ). He contacted us before we arrived asking if we needed groceries, reservations, trip planning help, a cook, etc. The combination of the home, the views and personal service made this a very special, one of a kind experience for us. We did not want to leave the house even when the weather got bad. One night, Garrick arranged for a cook to prepare us dinner at the house. We ate in the courtyard under a beautiful sky--it was magical. Also enjoyed climbing the mountain on the property, the old barn and the orchard. Bring binoculars to enjoy viewing the pronghorn, javalina and deer that frequent the property. I'll be back! Thanks again Garrick!
Thank you for the great review! We are very happy you enjoyed yourselves and hope you come stay with us again soon.
