BIG BEND GETAWAY - VIEWS, COMFORT AND STYLE - 10 MIN TO POOL !

Lajitas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This custom adobe home is the perfect 'getaway' when visiting the Big Bend. Located on 20 acres and at the end of a long drive, the Big Bend Getaway provides seclusion and privacy. Furnished in a western style with modern flair, the house is built for comfort and relaxation indoors and out. Thick adobe walls and efficient heat and air keep it cozy in any type of weather. The large front porch and screened dining porch provide shade from the heat and protection from flying insects. The carport will protect your car from desert sun and storms. The main bedroom has a queen bed and its own AC and heater for a perfect night's sleep. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would typically need to prepare and serve most meals. Enjoy your meals in the rock floored dining room or on the dining porch. Relax in the comfortable living room, the semi-private den, one of the porches, around the fire circle, or on the double hammock. If you need a second bed, we'll fold out the queen size futon in the den. If you need a third bed for young children, we'll leave out the inflatable mattress and extra bedding.

We can comfortably accommodate four adults on a queen bed and queen futon. Dogs are also welcome. While we typically limit occupancy to four people, we can accommodate a slightly larger group if some are small children. Just let us know so we can make sure you will all be comfortable. If you have a larger group, consider renting the Getaway and the nearby Terlingua Ranch Retreat. The owners are good friends and we often arrange dual rentals. Just call or email us for details.

We recommend bringing a good book, or select one from our bookshelves, many about the Big Bend region. Just kick back and enjoy the solitude inside or out. Of course, there are lots of other activities to keep your stay busy and exciting. Watch the abundant birds, wildlife, and desert plant life on our twenty acres or as you walk, bike, or drive along the hundreds of miles of dirt and rock roads of the 200,000 acre Terlingua Ranch. Sign in at the Terlingua Ranch Lodge and hike along the remote and breathtaking trails through the Christmas Mountains. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool and inviting Terlingua Ranch pool (just six miles down the road). Visit Big Bend National Park (just 30 minutes to the west gate) or Big Bend Ranch State Park (just 45 minutes to the Barton Warnock Visitor Center). Enjoy meals, drinks, live music and more at the various restaurants and bars in the area. Sit out at night to watch the stars, tell tall tales, or enjoy a small fire. Drive along some of the most scenic roads in Texas. Raft or canoe down the Rio Grande. Enjoy a guided horseback ride or jeep tour through the rugged west Texas landscape.

With so many options, you can return home as relaxed or exhausted as you choose. Either way, you'll “getaway” from everyday life and bring back countless memories.

The owners and managers are friends--two couples--who live in Terlingua and Marfa and love the geology and plant and animal life of the area.

Janet E purchased this house in 2007

This is our second vacation rental in Terlingua Ranch. We have lived all over the world and found nothing like the Big Bend.

Quiet, quiet, quiet. Birds, deer, javelinas. Views, stars, walks and drives down the scenic Terlingua Ranch roads, hikes up Christmas Mountains, swimming in Terlingua Ranch pool, grilling out, relaxing on the porch, trips into Big Bend National Park, restaurants, bars & live music in Terlingua. Mostly, just relaxing and 'getting away' from day to day stresses and routines.

Contemporary, Clean, Secluded Getaway, nestled in the hills near Big Bend

  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2014

My high expectations are often let down. Not so with this Getaway vacation home. It is a beautiful, clean, comfortable house in excellent condition on a remote property in Terlingua Ranch (not Terlingua town, which is about half hour away.) My husband and I came for several days to get away from it all and visit Big Bend. We couldn't have asked for a better retreat and home base to unwind after hiking and exploring the park and surrounding areas.
It is literally out in the middle of nowhere in the foothills, with all the space and privacy you can ask for.

The rental is actually nicer than the photos, as some more decorating has been done in a cheerful, contemporary southwestern style. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything I needed to prepare meals, which we often ate in the screened in outside porch. The living area was a perfect place to kick back, second only to the front porch. The bathroom was clean, stocked with lots of fluffy towels, and worked well. The shower is small but we didn't mind. The bedroom is small but nice. The bed is very firm.

We found the owners to be pleasant and responsive. They were out of coffee filters and brought some out to us the same day. They thought of everything to make the place welcoming and enjoyable.

There are lots of outdoors activities and sightseeing in the area. We explored Big Bend National and State parks, hiked and did the scenic drives through Terlingua Ghost Town past Lajitas along the Rio Grande, BBNP was our favorite! Be sure to stargaze, it's amazing.

If you do not plan to make your own meals, I recommend Terlingua (new or Ghost Town) for meals rather than the cafe at Terlingua Ranch for casual dining. Lajitas and Marathon have excellent fine (aka pricey) dining at the resort/hotel.

We highly recommend the Getaway and hope to return.

Very clean house with well-outfitted kitchen (we cooked all meals) great secluded location. My boys (11 and 15) loved this place, climbed to the top of the hill behind the house, did some star-gazing, learned some water conservation and appreciation for desert-living. Central location for our Spring Break vacation, with travels to Ft. Davis, Mac Donald Observatory, Marfa, Terlingua, Big Bend National Park, and Big Bend State Park. We could only get this location for half of our stay, so rented a "cabin" in Terligua for the other half--no comparison! Will definitely stay here again!

Quiet, beautiful, airy cabin to escape the world

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. The utter quiet and peace helped us wind down from months of daily stress. The features of the cabins were just right; including the side screen porch for dining, all the books and guides in the cabin about area finds, the kitchen supplies and of course the fantastic views and hikes available right outside your doors. Very, very quiet at all times. What a great place to unwind and re-connect with one another. Proximity to Big Bend and the Fort Davis mountain areas were a plus. We'd definitely stay again. So quiet we thought we could hear the power running in the power lines to the house. Wonderful place to read, paint, think, or just be a couple again.

This home was exactly as described. I loved it...very clean, well maintained, isolated, providing quiet privacy yet it is an easy drive to park areas. It was a great place to come home to after exploring the local scenery. I would highly recommend staying here.

This is perfect for your Big Bend National Park stay! But you have a pretty terrific hike right out the front door, up past East Corazones peak, as far as you want to go, really. Great exercise and views.We limit the place to four adults, but with two adults and children, we can make exceptions by prior arrangement. Sorry, but absolutely NO HUNTING or TARGET PRACTICE!
