Fun adobe house for up to 4 guests.
Located on the western edge of Marfa this fun place has everything you need for a comfy stay in Marfa. This air conditioned and heated adobe house, with wifi, belongs to a private chef & art collector who carefully restored the adobe himself.
The house is wonderful for 2 -4 guests and sleeps up to 4 people.
1 Bedroom downstairs - Queen bed, sleeps two.
The bathroom is downstairs.
1 Loft bedroom upstairs - Full size bed, sleeps two.
There is a small sofa in the living room, but not best for sleeping unless you just have to escape that snoring husband/wife/friend/alien who happened into your bed!
Davis Mountain views from some parts of the property.
Courtyard with a unique, handmade, fun soaking tub. (This is a cowboy handmade tub, not a white shiny porcelain bath tub. It is an "ofuro" style tub with both hot and cold water. It is not a community hotel hot tub with seating for 20 people. Small, intimate tub, best for one calm, sane person.)
Concrete floors and fun art.
You’ll have the best of both Marfa’s: the town's events, restaurants, & music plus the magic of the high desert. While just a short distance from the center of downtown, you’ll be able to escape to spend the evenings stargazing in the back yard or courtyard, or ) On cool nights the back patio provides nice sunset views.
The train is an integral part of the town of Marfa. There would be no town of Marfa without it and you wouldn't have the privilege of visiting. You may hear it, you may not. This house is far quieter than most others in downtown Marfa and quieter than two of the four hotels in town.
The house is in a real, very safe Marfa neighborhood that has older and less manicured adobe homes, a cemetery at the end of the street and is "rustically" West Texas - not Beverly Hills.
Inside you’ll find:
WIFI, fully air conditioned for the hottest desert days, fully heated for those cold Marfa nights. Remote control air conditioning at your fingertips, one system upstairs, one system downstairs.
Full kitchen with gas convection range, microwave, concrete countertops, wooden butcher block and plenty of kitchen equipment.
Rain head shower inside full bath.
1 bedroom downstairs with queen bed with comfy sheets and choice of down or fiber filled pillows.
1 Loft bedroom upstairs with a full sized bed with memory foam topper offering fun mountain views over the tops of the studios to the north. If there are extra guests for the upstairs, please take a look at the stair pics.
Dining room with hand-made dining table also doubles as a great artist space, studio with fine indirect morning light.
Owners of well-behaved pets and children may discuss their approval.
Due to the recent city wide "burn ban", outdoor fires in the fireplace are prohibited at this time.
WIFI - There is wifi at the house.
Check-in time is 4:00 pm unless we have guests departing the same day as your arrival at which time check-in will be 5:00 pm.

About Terry Nowell
I bought an adobe ruin in Marfa in 1997 after locating the run-down shell of a house with the help of some friends. I've worked on it for quite a few years attempting to make it into a super comfy retreat at the edge of town in Marfa.

This rustic adobe artist's space allows you to experience the real feel of West Texas in an extremely comfortable dwelling.

Enhanced the feel of Marfa
Enjoyed the setting and the house.
Thanks for taking great care of the house Deborah and thanks for being prompt with your emails and texts when booking your stay. Please do visit again in the near future.
Mystical fabulous place
I’ve never been the type of person who chills at houses but this is one I enjoyed spending time in. Amazing desert dwelling. My only issue is that the main bed was not too comfortable (too much of a springy mattress for me). Otherwise kitchen is fully equipped. And the house is stunning.
Best place we've stayed in Marfa
This house is now our go-to place to stay in Marfa. We've stayed twice now, and will look for it first whenever we visit.
Lovely Marfa Getaway
The owner, Terry, was responsive and wonderful to communicate with. The house has a rustic Marfa feel and lots of character - it's clearly been a labor of love and is in a great location on the edge of town. We especially enjoyed the very well-appointed kitchen since we were there for Thanksgiving. This is a cozy house with little privacy (no master bedroom door, etc.), so it's better for a couple, or 3 - 4 if privacy isn't important.
Great spot, has everything you need!
Such a nice space overall. Super unique, and has everything you need to have an enjoyable stay in Marfa. Place is well thought out for the visiting person. House did have WiFi!
We would for sure stay here again.
The ultimate adobe home!
It was a pleasure having Jeanne and her friends visit. I would welcome her back at any time in the future.
