  • Rustic and Rurual

    "This is a beautiful piece of property in Big Bend close to the national park. Kurt was a wonderful host, very friendly and very knowledgeable on anything you need to know about the area. The cabin was definitely rustic but had everything you would need and Kurt was always helpful. It is not a five star hotel so if that is what you are looking for as a previous poster said you might go elsewhere. Beware Arachnophobic's!!! You might want to think twice if you are... we had several spider visitors at night. The property is peaceful and serene. I was there to photograph the Milky Way and was able to get fantastic shots from his property. The night sky is incredible. There is spotty cell service. We have Verizon and would occasionally get one bar but it was unusual. The road to the cabin can be traveled with a regular car but it's definitely better if you have a high clearance vehicle. Without high clearance it's slow going on the road to the cabin and can take as much as a 20 minutes to get to the main road. This is a wonderful place if you are looking to get away from it all and Kurt was a wonderful gracious host. My husband said he wished he had a whole day just to spend talking to Kurt. We hope to return sometime soon."

  • Excellent rental in a beautiful setting

    "This place is fantastic and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going to the Big Bend area. My wife and I stayed over labor day weekend and had a fantastic time. The house is great, up-to-date and very functional. They have everything you might need including a mean looking telescope which I could not figure out. Super easy logistics getting in and out of the place. We'll be back."

  • 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."

  • 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!"
