Recent Big Bend Country reviews

  • Definite 5 Stars!

    "The Laughing Horse Retreat was more than we expected! The accommodations were excellent; everything we could possibly need was available. The retreat was clean, comfortable and very well stocked. Although we had a great time at Big Bend -hiking and exploring - we had just as much fun and relaxation on the Laughing Horse property. The view from the back patio was breathtaking. We are already planning and looking forward to our next stay."

  • Great location, comfortable

    "The house is within walking distance to the main places in Marathon. Very comfortable & mainly quiet. Janet met us & gave us the tour & history of the house. She also gave recommendations of where to eat."

  • Oasis in the Chihuahuan Desert

    "A disparate divergence from our typical car or tent camping in West Texas, we stayed at the Big Bend Getaway to escape the heat and do some mountain biking and hiking. This house is AMAZING, to the point that my girlfriend (now fiance) and I wondered (a) how could we buy a place like this, (b) why would we ever camp again (and perhaps we are getting old), and (c) will a positive review preclude us from ever renting again due to popularity. In all seriousness, this is an amazing, simple, and well-designed house with beautiful vistas and excellent porch space, sited on a wonderful property. In a vast landscape with long travel times, this property is perfectly situated between Alpine, Study Butte/Terlingua, BBSP, BBNP, and Marathon. The pool at the ranch house was great. Wonderful books and games at the house. We arrived via Alpine, stopping at Big Bend Brewing Company, traveled down to Lajitas, BBSP, Terlingua, and BBNP, and then departed via Marathon Rd. through Marathon for lunch and site seeing. Janet was wonderful to deal with and very responsive. Everything was great, and I cannot more highly recommend this place. I hope we will be back in the near future!"

  • A great value!

    "This rental was wonderful. It is fully stocked with all that is described and then some. We came for Big Bend NP and Mula Oso was a perfect base to explore from as it is located only a few minutes from the western gate to the park. I saw numerous new birds I had not seen before right on the property. My family and I also saw a rattlesnake, deer, quail, jackrabbits and we heard javelinas all from the front and back porches of the house. We sat on the front porch at night and saw the stars as you do not see them in populated places because there is little light pollution in the area, quite a show. The owners provided clear, comprehensive directions to and instructions for the home prior to our arrival. Big Bend is really a jewel in our National Park system and Mula Oso was perfect for our visit. We highly recommend La Kiva restaurant out near the ghost town as well."
