Very cool, art-filled home that hits the Marfa groove just right

  • 4 of 5

Great house overall. Terrifically stocked with hard and soft goods. A few issues-- no dishwasher that functions is a drag (especially with such great dinner ware!), we had router problems with internet and having to receive key by UPS with signature was inconvenient. Location is great for all sites of value in Marfa and staying there was like being in a gallery! The main bedroom has no door and is very exposed to living space and there are no window covers on large picture window facing street. Very bright light outside dining room that was not switch-activated was unpleasant. Interactions with Bea by both text and phone were good/helpful.

Owner's Response: Update as of February 2017, the barn door has been ordered to close off the bedroom to the TV room, a new dishwasher has been ordered and will be installed in February 2017 The bright light outside of the dining room has been disconnected. Bea ************ Thanks for your feedback and observations about my Dallas House. Since I have to buy a dishwasher in Midland and obtain a truck to deliver the dishwasher, this is something that will happen this month. I will say that so much of my dinnerware is all hand painted and hand made in Marfa and is sensitive to detergents. I will be sure and add a switch to have the light outside the dining room be adjustable. I am going to have a farm door that slides to have more privacy in the master bedroom soon. Thanks a million! -bea

Fantastic home in Marfa!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying at the Dallas House while I was in Marfa. The newly renovated home was absolutely spectacular. Every room felt like I was staying in my own comfortable house. Plus being only two blocks from downtown Marfa was such a bonus!
