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.
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.
