  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Great modern space!

    "We loved our three days in Marfa at this bright, modern, airy house, easy to find, and the owner made it super simple to get in once we arrived. We came to see the Perseids meteor shower and the backyard was a great vantage point the first night. Unfortunately we got rain after that, but the screened porch was the perfect place to watch the storms come and go, eat meals, or just gaze at the lovely xeriscaped backyard. Clean, thoughtfully appointed, fun artwork perfectly scaled to the space, nice crisp linens, three options for sleeping - soft, medium, and firm. The ladder to the loft took a *little* getting used to---could be an issue for older travelers or anyone with an injury or other limitation. Rain showerhead wasn't the strongest water pressure, and does splash a bit so be aware of that before you step in. It's 25 mins to the Prada store, well situated for excursions to Ft. Davis, the McDonald Observatory, and Balmorhea. Right next door to a pho restaurant (Marpho, get it?), a two minute walk from a Mexican food restaurant. Close to El Cheapo liquor but their inventory is NOT cheapo, so I'd recommend bring your own if you want wine, beer or cocktails. Other things to note - if you're sharing space with people you don't know well, there's not a ton of privacy, but for two people or a family of four, was just right, especially as what you give up in having a bunch of rooms with doors, you gain back with the light and high ceilings, clerestory windows letting in plenty of sun. It is on Marfa's main street, so there's night traffic with 18-wheelers, and you can hear the train, but that is pretty much the case from Marathon to Valentine and beyond. Thanks so much; we hope to be back!"

  • Basic but all you need

    "We had all we needed, maybe a few more bugs than necessary but we lived with them. First trip to Big Bend Park area and hope to return soon. Watched a family of sheep on bluff above upper deck; 8 hour float trip through Santa Elena canyon WOW!! Big Bend River Tours 1-800-545-4240 James and Andy were great, they know the river, the plants and the wildlife. Hwy 170 Lajitas to Presidio was more beautiful on return(west to east). Had a wonderful lunch at a small dive The Bean in Presidio. All restaurants were small, casual and the food was good. I will make every effort to book Terlingua House for future visits. Lots of linens, beds were comfortable, kitchen was rustic but every thing necessary was there. FYI we never located a hairdryer"
