About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Casa Mano Prieto, a 1350 square foot home, is nestled beneath the Puertacitas and Mano Prieto Mountains with long range views of Blue Mountain and Mount Livermore.

The enchanting setting is perfect for any getaway plans - exploring, birding, hiking or just watching the jackrabbits, quail and deer. Peace and quiet are the norm. Near by are the McDonald Observatory, Davis Mountains State Park, Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center and Fort Davis National Historic Site. Views outside all windows display the vastness and beauty of West Texas. The lighting changes the views all day long. Night brings the darkest, brightest, starry skies for the star gazer in you. It is a perfect spot to set up your own telescope.

About Tex Harrison

The amazing beauty and peacefulness brought Tom and Tex Harrison to this particular spot in West Texas from western North Carolina. They lived in this casa while they built their home and observatory.

Tex Harrison purchased this house in 2006

Why Tex Harrison chose Big Bend Country

After their home was finished, they decided to share this beautiful spot with others and opened Casa Mano Prieto in January 2010.

What makes this house unique

Every day offers different looks of the desert. It is ever changing and always peaceful and beautiful.

Great location and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I loved this property! It's remote enough for great stargazing and silent nights, but conveniently close to Marfa, Fort Davis, and Davis Mountains State Park. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

My family and I loved this trip. Nice house and property in the countryside away from city lights and traffic. Great location with easy access to Big Bend and the McDonald Observatory. We hope to go back and spend more time in the area.

Spectacular 360 degree views, well supplied with hospitality, furnishings,

  • 5 of 5

Nice getaway fully stocked with necessities beyond what I am accustomed to with VRBO. I've had very good VRBO accommodations worldwide, and this one is highly rated due to the ease of relating to the owners and their very comfortable, clean accommodations. Wonderfully surprised with the art sun porch where enjoyed playing with paints, the well-stocked beautiful kitchen, and amazed with the second bedroom...it was much larger than I imagined. I hope to be back to this lovely place soon!

Wonderful weekend with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Harrisons for a great place to stay! Our party of 4 had plenty of room to relax and enjoy a weekend far away from the city. Perfect location near Marfa, we drove in for a music festival and loved coming back to our secluded house each night to enjoy time under the amazing West TX sky! We will be back!
