Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We came to the Big Bend from Austin in 2002, never expecting any visitors from our past. But we had so many visitors that we built a guest house for family, old friends, and new friends.

Why the Owner Chose Alpine, TX, USA:
From The Little Tin Guest House it's an easy walk to the golf course, the city park and pool, the grocery store, and restaurants. And it's walking weather in Alpine almost any time of year. If you don't feel like walking, The Little Tin Guest House provides 2 mountain bikes and helmets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Comfortable, open floor plan. Priced right. Perfect for 2 days or 2 weeks.
