Property description

Stay with us and see what Grandma was so thrilled about. We offer a little more for a little less. Located in the heart of the Historic Terlingua Ghost Town, 1/8 mile off Hwy 170, our 1970s Airstream travel trailer, we call Josephine after a Great Aunt, is all decked out for your visit. With a complete kitchen and bath indoors, as well as a conveniently located bath house, all the linens, an extra cozy hand made Afghan and an antique down comforter for the full size bed, any utensils for cooking you could need, or perhaps you would like to use the outdoor gas grill ( located in the Hobbit House Pavilion ) to whip up a juicy steak. With heat and A/C you will be warm or cool as desired. You can sit in an antique outdoor rocker by your fire pit and feed Quail and Dove morning and night, our bunny's love flour tortillas by the way. Walk up to THE PORCH for a cool drink and listen to live music or dine in the Historic Starlight Theater. Our Airstream is comfy and handy.
So head to the most unique vacation rental around, rustic and ready for you.
You and yours will have room to stretch & lot's to do. With many dirt roads to walk you don't have to be a hiker to see it all. Just pack your bags and some groceries, ( bring your own fire wood/ or you can purchase locally.) we will provide the rest.

Car: Recommended

The Terlingua Ghost Town offers a central jumping off point for hiking, biking, motor cycling, horseback riding, shopping , galleries, live music, or watching the sun set in the east. This is an old mining town that offers, an insight into West Texas's past, our church has been restored and is often used for weddings. We love wandering the entire area and taking in the sights.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband and I have been living in the Ghost Town for 7 years now with our World Famous Terlingua Racing Chihuahua, Buckwheat. I am an Artist Specializing in birds and wildlife, my husband is a semi retired Veterinarian, he was born and raised Texan, and yes he's Aggie thru and thru. I'm a transplant from up north. My dad was in the army, so I grew up all over the country. Yup I'm an Army Brat. Buckwheat was born in Zapata TX. and has been with us for almost 15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Study Butte-Terlingua, TX, USA:
We, like so many, moved here because we fell in love with the folks ( nun friendlier anywhere) and the wonderful motoring roads. Great Views and handy location to it all. We came to visit and just couldn't leave.

The Unique Benefits at this Recreational Vehicle:
Stay with us and experience the Past, Present and just maybe your future home away from home, just as we did. Sit on your patio enjoy a cool drink and watch the world go by. With wonderful views of the Mountains of the Big Bend National Park in the East and long stretches of open land all around, fall in love just as we did. Stroll to 4 local restaurants and bars, hike the parks, or cook up something special in our outdoor kitchen ( The Hobbit House ) If you are here during one of our movie nights, or a Tween Party, please join in the fun. Every one is welcome.
