Recent Big Bend Country reviews

  • excellent, as usual...

    "my husband and i go to Huffman Pond to renew and recharge at least once a year. Our stay is always perfect and we have to drag ourselves out of there before they kick us out. the scenery is so peaceful, the cabin itself is comfortable and always clean, there is nothing you need that Janet and her husband have not provided for us beforehand. if you want to enjoy the peace and quiet among the raw natural beauty of Big Bend, this is the place to visit; in case you must have a connection to the outside world, you do have cell phone reception and internet services..."

  • Veru fun and neat place to stay in the Big Bend area

    "The retreat was very easy to reserve and Janet was very responsive to my questions. They provide a code just in case you're driving from somewhere far and get in late so you don't have to worry about late arrivals. I took my son to Big Bend and wanted to stay somewhere unique and really experience the beauty of the area. We drove to big bend each day and on the way had breakfast at a very good restaurant in Ghost Town. We also drove to the McDonald observatory to attend the star party event they do on certain nights which i highly recommend doing that and be sure to reserve in advance. The stars are absolutely beautiful with no light pollution and they have several telescopes for people to look at star clusters, other galaxies, etc. On the way back we had dinner in Alpine which is very neat town and was surprised by the type restaurants they had for such a small town. The house was very clean and i felt very comfortable on the first night which is huge for me to say because i typically have a hard time adjusting to hotels, even nice ones. The home has everything you need and even provide extra things that you may have forgotten for cooking so the owners go well and above making sure their visitors will enjoy their stay. All of the locals who live in the ranch area are very friendly and make you feel like you're apart of the community which was nice considering how some people treat outsiders from big cities. I plan making a second trip when my son is a little older so we can go on longer hikes and will stay at the same retreat. Janet, thank you for your hospitality!."

  • Best VRBO experience - amazing location, home, and owners

    "We've been staying in VRBOs for years due to our large family, and this was our favorite ever. The managers Janet and Daryl truly care about their visitors having a great vacation experience. They were responsive to all our needs and questions both before and during our vacation, and keep the home well-stocked with a lot of attention to all the needs and comforts of visitors. The home is comfortable, inviting, homey, perfectly located, and clean. All 9 of us were comfortably situated. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 75 (4 teens:), and every single one had a wonderful and memorable time - walking the property, enjoying coffee on the patio in the morning, watching stars at night (cannot compare to what you see in the city!), playing games and watching movies in the home, and venturing into Big Bend National Park. We visited Big Bend almost every day and even though this was our second time to Big Bend, want to return again to hike the trails and see the sights we didn't have time for. We also went into the village of Boquillas, Mexico at Daryl's recommendation, which we all loved. One more thing - the wifi in the house actually worked! (can't always say that for rentals) That allowed my husband to take care of business emergencies, and us to watch movies of our choice from netflix. We hope to return to Big Bend in future years and Laughing Horse is the place we will choose to stay. Thank you Janet and Daryl!"

  • Beautiful and Relaxing

    "Our family of four had a wonderful trip to Big Bend and this cabin was one of the highlights! We loved sitting on the porch to watch the sunrise and sunset each day while our two kids explored. It was the perfect jumping off spot for both the national and state parks or just staying at the cabin to escape the hustle and bustle of life. I would highly recommend this rental to family and friends and we hope to be able to stay again sometime!"
