Wonderful "home base" to explore Big Bend and share great family time!

  • 5 of 5

Nice property with a full kitchen and plenty of space for 6 people to sleep and relax. We enjoyed being able to rest, have a family meal and play games after the day together in Big Bend. We had two spectacular days of warm temps and hiking in Big Bend and finished our time by ringing in the New Year together as the temperatures dropped into freezing.

Everything was ready when we arrived an we jumped in to making a meal together and eating as a family around the table.

We drove in after dark -although that was not our plan :)- and I will say that I don't recommend it. The directions you will receive after you pay for your stay are very detailed and good but the roads and last leg up the driveway would be better traversed on the first day, in the light.

I also want to give a shout out to the folks who manage this property... let's just say they go above and beyond the call of duty... they are available to answer any questions and give you room to enjoy your family time.

Thanks for a great place of rest! Big Bend... breathtaking awe of the Lord's creation!

Perfect family getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Extremely thankful the owner is willing to rent out this eclectic and remote home. It was perfect for our family of six and made for a memorable trip. This was our 8th trip to the area and one of the best locations (if you aren't camping in the park.) There are three large areas to hang out (living room, gameroom and kitchen) as well as the amazing porches. Somehow I didn't see the gameroom in the pics so it was a surprise and the perfect way to encourage kids off their phones and to hang out as a family. The views are amazing and the remoteness a gift. Everything is there for birding and wildlife watching as well. If the weather was warmer, I would have been tempted to sleep on the porch under the stars!

Tips:

Since two twins are in the living room, we brought a camping cot so we could put three people in the twin room so they could go on to sleep and not be kept awake by the late nighters.

We were there during a cold spell so we brought small heaters for the rooms so we wouldn't overuse the house's heater.

The house has more information on Big Bend than you will have time to look at!

We had a truck so the drive not a problem. It takes about 30 mins to get from the house to 118. Everything in the Big Bend area is spread out so it didn't bother us at all and TOTALLY worth the time for the unique remote West Texas experience.

Great place to stay so close to Big Bend!

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying here! All the comforts of a house with AMAZING views of the region. Wildlife, clear night skies full of colors and stars, and peace and quiet made this a great getaway from city life.

A interesting place to visit!

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice, the last 300-400 yds getting there are rough, but beautiful once you top the hill. The house was very comfortable, clean and had everything needed. All the instructions were a great help, lots of information about area and the park. I spent a lot of my time there watching the birds as I do at home, saw a few new ones. A red racer was a visitor one morning on the front porch. Thanks for the memories,

About Janet Eby

We don't own LTM Ranch, but we wish we did. Janet and I run Big Bend Vacation Rentals and manage several vacation rentals -all listed on VRBO. Janet takes care of all the reservations and customer inquiries. Daryl handles maintenance, websites, and facebook pages for all our properties. We both handle the cleaning and often have help from our sons, Josh and Zack. If someone drives up to the house while you are here, it will most likely be us. If you have questions or concerns while you are here or while planning your trip, we'd be glad to help. We truly love our business and enjoy helping our guests.

Janet Eby purchased this house in 2000

Why Janet Eby chose Terlingua

LTM Ranch is simply amazing, inside and out. The rock house, the property, the views. They are all much more than can be describe. You'll have to check it out for yourself.

A high clearance vehicle is recommended to get to and from the LTM Ranch.

What makes this house unique

The large game room with various games, pool table, darts, and a stereo system is the social hub of the house. The large sun room has huge picture windows overlooking the southern patio and bird feeder. Birdwatchers will stay busy recording several species. The views are simply spectacular in all directions.
