About Kathy Bork
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.
Kathy Bork purchased this House in 2012
Why Kathy Bork chose Alpine
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.

Just what we needed...
My family of four stayed here last weekend as part of the Marathon2Marathon run on Saturday. It was just as described- a great place to relax and enjoy the weekend. The house is fully stocked with cooking supplies and amenities, but also close to several great spots in town for breakfast, coffee, etc. It was clean and comfortable!
House very clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Shower water pressure was a little weak. Would recommend staying.
Perfect Little House!
Kathy is very quick to respond. Alpine is wonderful. The house is clean, nicely located, and well stocked.
We really enjoyed staying here during our visit to Alpine. The location is perfect, and the house is very cozy and inviting. Looking forward to staying again!
Exactly what I needed!
Just a few blocks from the University, my son was able to stop by whenever time allowed to eat a home cooked meal, an easy feat with a fully stocked (pans / utensils) kitchen. We even enjoyed grilled fajitas outside in the patio after his scrimmage. Neat little compact home away from home. Will definitely stay there again!
Great place for a family to stay long term. You can cook at your leisure. Close to everything that you need. Not lacking anything.
