Overview

Lajitas House Rental Photos and Description

Main House has 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 shower, sleeps 6 to 8, Bunk house sleeps 4

This extremely comfortable three bedroom vacation rental house near Terlingua has excellent views, lots of room inside and out, and easy access to area attractions. The owners have Native American artifacts, an expansive rock collection, and locally inspired art displayed throughout the house.

We also have a bunk house with a queen bed and a bunk bed with two twin beds, bathroom with shower if needed at an extra $45 nightly.

Views include Christmas Mountains, Hen Egg Mountain, numerous rock formations, and many other hills and mountains.

Water and feed is provided for the abundant wildlife. Sit out on the front or back porch and enjoy the fantastic views while watching birds, quail, mule deer, aoudads, lizards, and lots of other wildlife. Enjoy the sights and smells of the desert plant life such as ocotillo, several varieties of flowering cactus, creosote, agave, sotol, yuccas, wildflowers, and native grasses. Take a walk around the property for a closer look at the desert.

At night, turn off the lights and be amazed by the Big Bend night skies. Cook out on the gas grill while enjoying total solitude and privacy. As a guest at a Terlingua Ranch property, you will also have access to hundreds of miles of dirt and rock roads across the 200,000 acres of Terlingua Ranch plus the pool at the lodge.

Inside the house, enjoy all modern comforts, including AC/heat, full kitchen, two baths, three comfortable bedrooms, cozy dining area, spacious living room, satellite TV in the living room and master bedroom, wireless internet, and a full sized washer and dryer.

Rancho Mula Oso is an ideal vacation property. Hang out in the comfort of the home. Enjoy the remote property with desert plant, wildlife, and views. You'll never have to leave the property. But, you'll probably want to check out the national park, the state park, the river, the ghost town, or just enjoy a scenic drive. Do as much or as little as you like. Either way, you will want to come back.

Due to concerns from neighbors and potential liability, we must prohibit discharge of any firearms on the property for any reason.

About Janet Eby

I have been retired for a number of years and wanted a place in the Big Bend since 1971 when I first visited at the age of 18. We purchased the property our home now sets on in 1981 and put up the house in 2007. We spend our time between our main home in Katy, TX, our sons home in San Marcos and out here. I love it out here in the Texas Outback. So peaceful, so calm.

Janet Eby purchased this house in 2007

Why Janet Eby chose Lajitas

This home site was selected from hundreds of acres and several other possible home sites to take advantage of the marvelous views, abundant wildlife, beautiful desert plants, easy road access, and privacy.

What makes this house unique

This house provides a perfect escape from the stresses of modern life, but is close enough to the highway and Terlingua to avoid being cut off from society.

My wife and two sons stayed at this property and can't say enough good about how wonderful our stay was at Rancho Mula Oso. The house is very clean and well stocked. The Black Jack Crossing Golf Course which is close by, is one of the best courses in the U.S. We will stay there again when we are in the area. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Artifact heaven!

  • 5 of 5
We had a medical episode that prevented us from doing much and extended our stay. BUT the amount of artifacts and books in this home made it much easier for my teen nephew. The beautiful outside area to walk with a provided walking stick A++. Sitting out in the chaise looking at stars. From the back porch we saw sheep , deer , rabbits and birds so even my husband that had become I'll was able to enjoy. Just absolutely cozy inside! We have stayed often in VRBO / home away and this property was the best stocked we have ever experienced. Only thing in entire process that I went hummm about was a fee for a service dog. I will assume it's a lack of knowledge so we paid it. In years and years of having a medical dog this was the first fee. But groceries at alpine and just enjoy. Hope we go back to the area and Janet is available

Best place to stay yet.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I visit Big Bend frequently and this was the best trip yet. Rancho Mula Oso is close enough to gas and stores but far enough out to give privacy and a great view. The detached carport is perfect for parking our motorcycles. Plenty of room to sleep our party. Nicely outfitted with reading material about the area and little artifacts throughout the house. The operators went over and above to ensure we had a great experience.

We'll be back.

Family Event

  • 5 of 5
This was truly an amazing "ranch"! My family spent 5 days at the ranch and enjoyed everything it had to offer. We were all able to spread out and have our own space. After a long day of hiking at Big Bend,(which was approx. 30-45 minutes, worth the drive) we had an amazing retreat awaiting us. Sit in the lounge chairs provided to watch an amazing sunrise and sunset! The kitchen is furnished with everything you would need and more. We will definitely return.
