About Robert Bellamy

I own a landscape design company in Dallas, TX where I have lived my entire life. As an artist, I was drawn to Marfa because there is always something interesting and educational or musical going on in town. Being in the high desert it's warm and dry during the day...crisp and cool at night. I try to get to Marfa at least once a month.

Robert Bellamy purchased this bungalow in 2004

What makes this bungalow unique

The Hill House is the only property of this kind with a panoramic view of the city of Marfa and the surrounding mountains. You can see storms coming in from 80 miles away!

Great location, perfect for long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend at the House on the Hill for an annual girls trip, and everything was great! The location is perfect for walking everywhere in Marfa. The amenities were as described, and the house and its contents were very clean. Everyone had a comfortable sleeping space, and a few brave souls enjoyed the outdoor shower. We made a day trip to Big Bend National Park, and dinner in Terlingua. I would not recommend the house for families with children - there are lots of steps outside that line the beautiful landscape. It was a perfect setting for our group - would definitely recommend to friends looking for a west Texas get-away.

Beautiful, luxurious, cozy with great outdoor space and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all.

We could not have wished for better in Marfa.

The owner and house keeper were incredibly helpful.

It was freezing when we were there, so we couldn't enjoy the beautiful garden, which would be amazing in warmer weather.

My only suggestion would be: get some professional photos taken - these ones just don't do that house justice!

Magical mornings in the desert

What a beautiful home! The photos do not do this place justice, it's so much more beautiful in person! We loved our stay here and hope to return in the near future or maybe even yearly! Everyone we met was warm and welcoming! Any time we mentioned we were staying at the Hill House, we always got an enthusiastic response. It seems like the place to be, and for staying during such a busy weekend, we sure lucked out! We spent a lot of time in the lush garden downstairs which was always full of butterflies. We love everything about this place, it all felt so magical. The sunsets from the patio are amazing, the furniture and art is tastefully chosen, and all the living areas are comfortable and welcoming. We even met with some of the artists in person during the Chinati Weekend! It was a pleasure to come back to the home and view the work in a different light.

Thank you so much for having us!
