We call it Ranch Water because it is our favorite cocktail -- a mix of tequila with lime juice and Topo Chico mineral water -- made famous by the Lost Horse Saloon here in Marfa (and later picked up by Martha Stewart).
The house has two bedrooms -- a king bed and a double bed -- and one bathroom, and is perfect for 3 people, but can sleep up to 5. There is central air and heat, so the house is always cozy.
Master bedroom - king bed
Second bedroom - full/double bed
Living room - daybed (upon request)
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with Belgian linen duvet and down-alternative pillows. There is also a writing desk and an armoire.
The second bedroom has a more spartan full-sized or double bed with Pendleton blanket and cotton duvet, an armoire, and a decorative wood stove.
The bathroom has a tiled walk-in shower and ample counter space. **Please note that the bathroom is off the master bedroom, so guests have to pass through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.
The living room has a kiva fireplace with fire logs for your use and a daybed for lounging with lots of cozy textiles. The daybed has a twin mattress and can be used as a bed on request.
The brick-floor library has interesting books, games, and a radio for listening to Marfa Public Radio or connecting your own music. The dining table has seating for six, and the table can be expanded with the built-in leaf.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to entertain. You are welcome to use the provisions such as olive oils, salt and pepper, and the like. We also stock a supply of Big Bend Coffee for you.
The house is sited on a large lot with a great front porch and a patio on the east side. Watch the sunrise or sunset from the porch in the hammock or the Cast and Crew patio chairs.
Ranch Water is located on the east side of town near Garza Marfa, and is walking distance from Highland Avenue and the center of town. Surrounded on both sides by adobe ruins, this house is the perfect home camp for your stay in Marfa.
We include a book for your stay with maps and info on area attractions and museums, shopping, and dining. Let us make your stay special!
