Overview

Marfa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Windmill Retreat is a fine example of authentic adobe architecture situated on a hill in Marfa's northeast section with lovely views of the Fort Davis mountains and a short walk from Marfa town center.

This charming 100 year old adobe has been recently renovated, integrating modern conveniences while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture, including an old wooden windmill structure on the property. Minimally yet comfortably furnished, the one bedroom, one bath home features a queen-sized bed, a full sleep sofa, and a large gourmet kitchen with new modern appliances and accessories, ideal for cooking and entertaining. Hanging on the walls is contemporary art by established local artists from galleries in Marfa.

The east porch is bathed in beautiful morning light, and features a table that comfortably seats eight. The enclosed west garden affords privacy off the Master bedroom, comfortable Adirondack chairs, and small copper fire pit/grill, as well as indigenous blooming flowers and aromatic plants.

Windmill Retreat offers privacy with mature Pinon trees, and a peaceful surround...perfect for writers, artists, designers and creative people. (Three Night Minimum)

Great trip to Marfa

  • 5 of 5

This home was delightful, with all the amenities, including a washer and dryer. Well-stocked kitchen, plenty of towels. (I would add more trashcans but apparently, Marfa is so full of goodness, trash is not a byproduct.)

This was my first time to Marfa and it was an unforgettable trip. And this sweet, lovely house made it all the more memorable. I felt like I could really relax and get away.

Thank you for providing such a pleasant stay. I will never forget it and will stay again.

SoTasteful and So Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and beautiful home is extremely clean and comfortable, very tastefully decorated, and bathed in natural light. I loved the art, the kitchen, the patios, and the wonderful books that are on display on the living room coffee table. This is the best home away from home I have ever had! I can't wait to go back!

Undoubtedly the Best Place to Stay in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

Diane,

Wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the place in Marfa.

We arrived Friday night at 9, just in time to pick up a pizza, and found the house lights on, everything was immaculate. Really amazing! You even had an the Giant DVD for us to watch!

Really amazing, have never had a better vacation accomodation experience.

This house compliments Marfa's culture, peace and attitude perfectly - the whole place is one big art installation. I've been to Marfa a dozen times, and now I would not consider returning without staying in your house.

Thanks again!

We enjoyed an amazing stay at the Windmill

Retreat. From the moment we drove onto the

gravel driveway and marveled at the concrete work,

the galvanized metal gutters, wonderful aluminum

table and chairs, things just kept getting better. We

loved the enclosed courtyard and saw a number of

sphinx moths and a hummingbird enjoying the red

honeysuckle. A pair of white wing doves claimed

the windmill and kept a watch on us as we enjoyed

afternoons on the eastern facing porch. I prepared

nearly all our meals in the well planned and

supplied kitchen. The weather was cool in the

evenings and mornings and pleasant during the

day. The quietness and peacefulness in the house

gave us time and inspiration for writing and

reading. We loved the artwork in the house and

attention to detail that made us feel at ease and at

home.

We loved staying at the Windmill Retreat in Marfa. The house had absolutely everything we needed and was a great combination of efficient, comfortable and hip! The two patios just off of the kitchen and bedroom provided great extra living space for us. We'll stay again, every time if we can!

A nice retreat to experience all the delights Marfa has to offer--wonderful art, food & people. The private garden off master is a great spot for enjoying your morning coffee or tea. Jon and Diane have done an excellent job in creating a comfortable and pleasing clean-lined space. In all, its a perfect place to enjoy the ‘magic of Marfa’! We had a great time!
