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.

Top place to stay in Terlingua/Big Bend

  • 5 of 5
We were completely blown away by the attention to detail, the location, the house in general, the outside, the mountains. The total package leaves me speechless. Very easy to book, to arrive, to stay, and to leave. Easier than booking a cheap hotel. This was a five star accommodation at a 'too good to be true' price. But it wasn't too good to be true. This is on our return list many times coming.

Big Bend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property was a nice escape from the busy life in the city. The accommodations and service were great, the scenery fantastic, and the stars were out in force every night. I highly recommend the rental, and will very likely return soon.

What a way to getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a magical time at the Getaway. As noted by others, the photos don’t do justice to the lovely accommodations and the beauty of the desert, mountains and sky. The house was perfect for four (two couples). The stars and the night sky were amazing, topped by a very special moonrise. Our stay was short (weekend), and we knew the weather would be too hot for hiking, but the house was cool and the covered porches allowed us to sit and eat outside. Amazing place to escape and be absorbed by the West Texas landscape. Terlingua was a half-hour drive, so we included a visit to the historic cemetery and dinner at the Starlight which provided good food and local color. We will definitely be back!
P.S. Our Chihuahua was right at home, and our Pomeranian loved it too.

Hope to Return

  • 5 of 5
This place was just what we were hoping for: relatively secluded, quiet, clean, and ideal for reflection. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch and outside. We came during a time of year when the bugs aren't bad, but, being nature lovers, bugs wouldn't have really bugged us much anyway, no pun intended. When we're in the area next, we hope to find 'home' away from home here again.

Great Loved it

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great 5 night stay in Terlingua. The house was lovely, all amenities were great.
The outside area was lovely to sit for breakfast and watch the sunrise which were spectacular.
Terlingua and the Big Bend are amazing and the highlight of our tour around Texas. We walked in the Chisos Moutains which are stunning and canoed down the Rio Grande which I can highly receommend.

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

  • 5 of 5
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.

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!
