Recent Big Bend Country reviews

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful property near Big Bend

    "We stayed for four days in August and had a great time. The house is exactly as described and has lots of room - for us four it was hard to decide where to sleep first :-) The little town of Terlingua has much more to offer than we first expected - no need to bring a lot of supplies unless you want to save money: the local grocery store is of course a bit more expensive than a big city supermarket."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect Escape

    "La Esmerelda exceeded our expectations! I just wanted to curl up on the screened porch and read a book on the rocking lounge. It was too warm to build a fire, but in cooler temps that would have been a must! The kitchen comes equipped with all the basic necessities plus more...the french press made my day! The beds were cozy, the bathroom had plush towels and a variety of toiletries. The book collection met the interests of my music loving husband and my outdoorsy, inquisitive 7 year old! We can't wait to stay again. We're already planning our next trip to Marathon and La Esmerelda."
