About the property

2 person occupancy in a fabulous bungalow down the hill from the Hill House

The “Hill House Canteen” is a new addition to the House on the Hill VRBO listing # 196194. 150ft and 53 steps down below the main home sits this concrete block structure……… Privatized by an arc of pine trees this area has outdoor covered seating, a stucco banquet and an entertaining area with smoker and grill. The canteen features 13’ ceilings and large rolling metal and glass doors which help monitor light and air flow … which also, when opened, creates an open air atmosphere of “camping out”.

The Canteen sleeps 2 on a very comfortable fold out sofa. High quality bedding is stored for easy access when you decide to “turn in” for the night. An Isokern Fireplace adds to your comfort on chilly Marfa nights and mornings. The complete kitchen is equipped with a gas cooktop, electric stove, Fiestaware dishes, cooking utensils, and coffee maker. There is a small powder room and just off this room a fabulous sexy outdoor shower with hot and cold running water.

Reserve this spot for $195/ night …. Or reserve the entire compound (Hill House and Canteen) to sleep 8 people comfortably …..perfect for catered events!! Two separate listings.

Damage to the property, including but not limited to guest rooms, fixtures, furnishings, artwork, décor or linens, will result in the guest being charged.

About Robert Bellamy

I own a landscape design company in Dallas, TX where I have lived my entire life. As an artist, I was drawn to Marfa because there is always something interesting and educational or musical going on in town. Being in the high desert, it's warm and dry during the day...crisp and cool at night. I try to get to Marfa at least once a month.

Charming and unique

  • 5 of 5

The home was a very artsy, comfortable space, well-appointed and with wonderful outdoor areas (seating, pergola, lawn, fire pit) and very hot water in the charming outdoor shower. It is a convenient walking distance to the main town. The only thing I wish I had known is that it is close to the highway (Rt. 67/90), though there was no disturbing traffic during the night. I'd definitely stay here again if I'm in West Texas!

First time in Marfa (won't be the last)

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I drove out to Marfa for our anniversary, and the trip was absolutely amazing. The Canteen was a huge part of that. The outdoor area is perfect for hanging out in the evenings, and for star-gazing at night. The design (inside and out) was really nice. It also happens to be within walking distance to most things in town (no more than about a mile), including Pizza Foundation, which is a great place across the street.

This was a beautiful getaway for my husband and I, we spent our anniversary here, it was truly a magical experience. We loved the artwork, and the love that was put into the design of the home even to the smallest details. Robert is an excellent host! Thanks so much Robert. We leave tomorrow from this beautiful place and I'm sure we will come again in the near future. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
