  • Perfect remote off the grid escape

    "Hoffman Pond Cabin is a perfect off the grid cabin setup. Perched up high on the back side of a mound to catch a perfect breeze. Veiws are awesome and the night is dark for great star gazing! You do need a high clearance vehicle and if it rains it does need to be a 4X4(trust me on that one). Only thing we missed was not having was a fire ring and the ability to enjoy an open fire at night. That aside, look forward to our next stay."

  • A retreat to recharge!

    "You want solitude and peace and quiet? This is absolutely the place! This was my 2nd visit to the Retreat and I will be back for more, for sure. The location is wonderful and the views morning and night are spectacular. The cabin is well-appointed with dishes and cooking utensils. Hit the Cottonwood store (if coming from Big Bend Nat'l Park) and you can stock up on groceries for the full-size fridge and freezer. We grilled hamburgers and enjoyed the open porch watching the sunset. You are off the grid, but there is Wi-Fi. It is just a wonderful oasis in the desert. Thank you for opening up this lovely escape for others to enjoy!"

  • The desert and the big sky.

    "Tarantula Ranch provided an amazing backdrop for a great family adventure in Big Bend National Park. Fantastic panoramic views, in an isolated, quiet, peaceful and calm setting. A rustic slice of desert overseen by an incredibly gracious and accommodating host with a love of animals and a tale to tell for every occasion. Clear dark skys at night and regular visits from Maggie and Billy, (resident donkeys) and Curt (the owner), provided the topics for conversation and observation. We started planning our return visit before our time at the ranch was over."

  • Great unexpected stay

    "We never actually planned to come here but heavy rain at the beginning of our stay meant we could not access the LTM house and we were offered this as a replacement house. whilst not as aesthetically beautiful the house became an excellent base for exploring big bend national park.We enjoyed breakfast and sunrise on the veranda enjoying making waffles with the machine provided, we also enjoyed a sunset BBQ. The birds, deer and jack rabbits provided plenty of entertainment and we had the bonus of enjoying some of team GB success at the Olympics as we had the TV. this was a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay and although we left to try out the LTM ranch when the weather improved we could easily have remained here. in a way we ended up with the perfect mix of the two houses. a wonderful stay in Terlingua and many thanks to Janet & family for advising us to adapt our plans and checking that we were having a great stay at both properties."
