"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!"
