About Robert Spiegel

I bought this home in 2004. I've owned a few vacation rentals, and I travel a lot so I understand what is important when you are away from home! My home base is Houston, Tx where I have lived for 15 years. Prior to that I lived in Boston.

Why Robert Spiegel chose Marfa

I fell in love with Marfa on my first visit. This home is just the perfect getaway and I've enjoyed owning it. I've also met some of the coolest people who've been guests at the home.

What makes this house unique

This home is in a really great location in a quiet neighborhood. It is convenient to the center of town and all of the attractions in Marfa. There is ample parking, plenty of space, and this is not just some 'mediocre' vacation rental. It is a home that has been designer furnished and is so amazingly comfortable for your stay. Everyone who visits loves this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I’ve been meaning to tell you that we had an amazing time in Marfa. The house was PERFECT!!! We absolutely want to go back and will be hoping to stay at 608. Thank you so much for having such a great house there. Hope all is well with you.

Great house! 4 Spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large laundry/utility room. Kitchen was fully stocked, fenced yard made it suitable for pets. The house was clean and pictures are accurate. The owner was timely with communication and check in/out procedures. We will definitely return again soon!

Marfa weekend

  • 4 of 5
A great place to perch while seeing Marfa. Just far enough out of downtown but close enough to the galleries. Relaxed and smartly appointed hideaway. Owner has thought about guests' needs in nicely appointed baths and kitchen, but bathrooms are not en suite. Nice patio.

Great trip to SW Texas

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic fall weekend here. The house has plenty of sleeping accommodations and a big kitchen with everything we needed. Wi-fi, stereo and TV were easy to use. The decor is pleasing with a modernist sense of style. The weather was cooling down in the evenings and we enjoyed sitting out on the spacious back patio before dinner. All of the recommendations for restaurants and local activities were spot on. Don't miss the Chinati Foundation tour, Food Shark truck, and the great independent bookstore. Night owls should definitely visit the Museum of Electronic Wonders & Latenight Grilled Cheese Parlour - c'est si bon! This was our first visit to the area and we're quite sure we'll be back. Highly recommended!

Wedding weekend in Marfa

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful 3 nights at the Marfa Guest House for a wedding. The house is perfect for families, with 4 sizable bedrooms (one with twin beds for the kiddos). Big, well-stocked kitchen and big living room made for a great home away from home. Also a major plus, the house is as far away as you can get in Marfa from the train. My family members who stayed in downtown hotels were woken up several times by trains going by at all hours, while we slept soundly and peacefully. It is a short bike ride or nice walk to town. Highly recommend the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Melissa for staying with us. Many hotels and rentals in Marfa are much closer to the train tracks which can make for a "loud" stay. We think that being on the north side of town away from the tracks is definitely a more peaceful location in town! Hope to have you stay again soon. -Robert

Lovely House in the Heart of Marfa

  • 5 of 5
Our family travels to West Texas every summer and we always stay at the Marfa608 Guest House. It's perfect for a family -- we all have plenty of room and it's such a pleasant place to stay. It's in a quiet neighborhood, and is well appointed and furnished, with a lovely back patio. There are 2 baths, a very nice kitchen, and 4 bedrooms. It's sunny and open, too. Very pleasant. We once had to stay somewhere else, and grumped the whole time. We think of this as "our" place. It's that homey and warm.

Wonderful house with plenty of room, comfort and all the modern conveniences

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Robert is amazing to deal with. Secondly he made the entire check in and check out process very easy for us. All the bedrooms in the house are very comfortable. The sheets and the beds are excellent and the entertainment area keeps all of us feeling like home. There were plenty of towels and the showers are spacious and easily shared with other guests in the house. I can't say enough about all the useful utensils in the kitchen which made cooking super easy for us. I highly recommend the Marfa Guest House if you have a family or a group of people who wants a nice place to stay while exploring Marfa.
