Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This place really has to be seen to be believed. The photos don't do it justice. The minimalist design makes it the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries in West Texas. We took the short walk into downtown Marfa to explore and eat a couple of times.

The ladder to the loft might be a struggle for some, but it's fun. Well equipped kitchen, and nice open yard.

Sets you in the Marfa Vibe under roof and 4 walls.

  • 5 of 5

Great House and compound well suited to taking in Marfa and Big Bend Country. 4 males on a Christmas Ritual “Manaway” survived here spectacularly. Well appointed Kitchen keep our group of 4 feed st breakfast and evening snacks. We opted for fine dining experiences in Marfa and Terlingua for dinners. Fans on eclectic southwest architecture mashed with minimal modern overtones will appreciate this space. Extensive Private outdoor area with protected screen porch invite you to lounge outside. 2 60 year olds, 1 50 ish and a near 16 year old give this a thumbs up and would do it again.

The Elders allowed the near 16 year old the privilege of the loft bed area.

Immerse yourself in a Marfa Experience stay at La Mistica. Jon from Palo Pinto

Wonderful Place to Stay in Marfa!

We had a wonderful visit to Marfa staying at La Mistica. The property is centrally located and provided a perfect place to stay. Lauren was very kind and helpful in working with us to make sure everything was set. We would definitely come back and stay here again!

Nice modern house.

  • 4 of 5

We went to Marfa to see Big Bend and explore. The house is equidistant from the State and National parks but still a significant drive. It has a very nice kitchen and laundry area. It was less than one mile from Porters grocery store. Having only one bathroom was tough with 5 people. The ladder to the loft is not very ergonomic and might be a tough descent for a sleepy person at 3 AM. Our internet did not work and the blow up bed was very uncomfortable so we left early. The realtor was repsonsive to our needs. I think a Murphy bed would help this house be more comfortable.
