This historic home is a treasure for those seeking the classic charm and character that comes with original wood floors, spacious rooms, classic tile, and other special touches.
This home is a quaint mixture of original furnishings and updated bathrooms and full kitchen. In addition to the formal dining room the house includes a separate breakfast nook, plus 2 living areas to spread out in and enjoy- a formal living room and a den/TV room. Each tiled bathroom is very large, and one includes a separate tub and tub/ shower combination. 2 families can easily afford to spread out here! In fact, your property managers will be happy to provide an extra air mattress to accommodate extra guests. In addition, porches on the front and back of the home allow visitors to relax and enjoy those great, wide-open West Texas skies.
A short stroll will take you to the heart of Alpine where you can enjoy dining, shopping, art galleries and more. Or walk a few blocks East to Sul Ross State University, home to the Museum of the Big Bend. If you feel like a day trip, Marfa, Fort Davis, and Marathon are each only half an hour away, while Big Bend National Park is a comfortable hour and 15 minute drive from Alpine.

The house was very clean, well maintained in the interior, and a great price. It would be greatly improved by having a regular bed in the 3rd bedroom instead of a futon and if one of the couches were a pull out instead of a blow up. We had no problems once there, but none of the links Ginger sent to us before hand worked, and the tone of email conversations with her were short and she seemed annoyed. We enjoyed the house, but with a large group of adults in the future I would look for a place with 3 full beds and an agent that appreciates the business.
This was a comfortable, spacious house - we had two families (with 4 teenagers and 2 small children) and appreciated the blow up mattress. We would definitely stay here again. It is a well-cared for home.
Had a great time! The property was as described, was clean and Ginger was very helpful...brought us extra keys. Outside was not very well maintained, however it may be during summer.
The listing description was accurate, and the place was charming and quite spacious. It was exactly what we needed after several days of staying in small hotel rooms near Terlingua. Ginger, the owner/manager, was extremely helpful in answering questions; she also called the day before our arrival, to make sure we made in to Alpine in spite of the recent ice storm, and to apologize for the downed tree limbs in the front yard. The instructions for using the home's amenities and for cleanup/check-out were very clear and straightforward - a plus. The house and surrounding property were clean and well-maintained (except for the aforementioned tree limbs - not the owner's fault she couldn't get anyone out the week of Thanksgiving to clear a few tree limbs). The bathrooms and kitchen were very clean and well-appointed. Alpine is a great town, and the surrounding areas of Marathon, Marfa, Big Bend Ranch State Park, and of course, Big Bend National Park, are just spectacular. Well worth the trip. Restaurants in Alpine: Try Reata and Guzzi Up; avoid the Century Bar and Grill.
This was our second stay at the Alpine Rock House and it was as great an experience as the first time despite the winter storm that came through. The location is convenient, the home spacious and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. One note, the home has beautiful hardwood floors throughout and I would suggest having a rug of some sort inside the front door specifically for times like this when the walkways are covered in ice and snow. Also, having rock salt stored in the home would be advantageous to travelers who are not prepared to deal with these kinds of conditions in the morning!
