Lajitas House is in the historic Lajitas Resort area just 30 minutes from the beauty of the Big Bend National Park and 1 mile from the Big Bend Ranch State Park. Both parks have a variety of hikes and some truly spectacular scenery. Be sure to visit the local Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center on the east side of Lajitas for information and interesting exhibits.
Afterwords, relax in the shade of our front porch, enjoy the pristine view out across the shimmering Rio Grande River into the majestic mountains of Mexico or walk down the hill and sit by the river. Enjoy the peacefulness that underlies the Lajitas experience.
Lajitas House is within walking distance to the Lajitas boardwalk which offers shopping and a full service spa. Walk to the historic Lajitas Trading Post, which includes a deli, or to the Candellia, an excellent restaurant on the boardwalk where you can enjoy a meal in rustic elegance outdoors or in. The Thirsty Goat Bar offers a variety of libations in a comfortable and richly decorated environment.
A twenty minutes drive east and you are in the historic Terlingua Ghost Town. The world famous Chili Cook-off Championship occurs annually early in November. In Terlingua you can enjoy dining at The Starlight Theatre Restaurant and Bar and shopping at the Trading Post.
A short drive west from Lajitas House on the spectacular River Road (Texas 170) takes you through the magnificent vistas of Big Bend State Park and past historic Fort Leaton to the official border crossing at Presidio. On the Mexican side is the city of Ojinaga, site of the historic Battle of Ojinaga between the rebel soldiers of Pancho Villa and Mexican Federales.
Recently the crossing into Boquillas, a small Mexican border town on the Rio Grande Mexico became a reality. If you choose to make this adventure part of your Big Bend experience, you must have a passport. Boquillos is on the east side of Big Bend National Park. Remember: You must have an unexpired passport.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, everything about the property was as advertised. Fantastic ride on hwy 170 west and through Big Bend NP! Be sure to stop by to visit with the mayor.
This property has been home base the last two years. Perfect if you want to enjoy the golf course just down the road, but want to stay up later than the resort stays open. Or, just enjoy the view overlooking the river and star gazing at night. Thanks again for another fantastic stay.
Really lovely place to kick back and enjoy the peace and stunning views.
Lajitas House is a gem. Beautiful home in a stunning location. We felt very much at peace there and could spend hours relaxing on the porch or looking at the amazing sky late at night. And everything you could possibly need is provided. The owners certainly have the rental business down pat! We hope to return.
Great space, wonderful porch, all amenities in place! Will be back, as this part of TX is one of our favorite getaways.
3 Nights for a weekend with my Brother and sister. The house is easy to get to, right in Lajitas, the front porch and living room were fantastic. We had a great stay.
Lajitas House, with thick walls constructed of native adobe, sits on a hill on the west side of Lajitas. The west porch offers a view of the Rio Grande and, across the river, Old Mexico. Evenings offer spectacular sunsets and on clear nights the heavens are resplendent with stars.
Other Activities: Rafting, canoeing, ATV, jeep tours, and shuttle services are available in the area. Even wine tastings and gourmet trips. Outfitters in the area include Far Flung Outdoor Adventures, Big Bend River Tours, or Desert Sports. The Barton Warnock Center on the east side of Lajitas is an excellent place to learn about hiking in the area.
