This home was built in 1950 by Dr. Walter and Jane Stover. He was a local physician who practiced in Marfa from 1948-1976. Besides being a housewife and dietitian, Jane became an artist. She and a friend were the first students of National Academy artist Frank Gervasi. Their four children (who now live in Alpine, Dallas, Houston, and Round Rock) decided to update their childhood home for their own use and for others to enjoy.

Lauren Meader purchased this house in 1950

Large corner lot with privacy fenced back yard. Space for special event hosting with all the kitchen amenities necessary like double ovens, dishwasher and serving space. This home has been enjoyed by our family for the past 63 years and we want others to create special memories here, too!

A group of six friends and I came through Marfa coming off of a backpacking trip in Big Bend.

The Stover House made our stay in Marfa easy and comfortable, and I would recommend for anyone with a large group.

I wish we could have stayed longer!

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Great 1950's feel with lots of room for entertainment - perfect for a larger group. I would definitely recommend the house to friends and family who are visiting in the area.

Plenty of room

Understated decor, with a vintage feel, so as not to assault too many senses. Nice things to read. Disappointed when basement toilet/bathroom overflowed after one use which then caused us to not want to use the den at all, which was going to be the highlight of the trip. Also, fireplace in den wasn't operational. Were told after the fact that the bathroom "does that", would be great to have know this in advance. Overall though, a clean place, and can fit a fair amount of people. Did not get a chance to enjoy outdoor area which might be a nice thing to do as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the plumbing problem and regret that you felt you could no longer use the den. The manager would have arranged for a re-cleaning had it been requested. The den bathroom has never had an issue before. To clarify, the den is a few feet lower than the rest of the house due to the slope of the property and is not a basement.

The gas fireplace in the den has been in consistent service. It is an older style, consistent with MCM heritage and its' operation may be unfamiliar to guests. Thank you for pointing out that issue; although instructions are explained in the onsite "House Mechanics" manual, we have posted instructions next to the unit.

We enjoyed our stay and plan to rent this house again on our next trip to Marfa. We were a group of 5, including one child and there was plenty of room to be comfortable. Having a coffee maker was helpful and the plentiful supply of pots, pans, utensils and tableware was perfect. We cooked dinner one night without any problems. The drive downtown was very quick, maybe 4-5 minutes and walking around the neighborhood was very nice. The owner and property manager have done a great job keeping this house in excellent condition. The photos are an accurate representation of the house and rooms. Highly recommend this house! Thanks for an enjoyable vacation!

Family fun in Marfa

  • 5 of 5

We love Marfa and have rented several VRBO's in town and this one was our favorite for a large group. 6 of us headed to our favorite town for a weekend of fun a few weeks ago. The Stover house was large enough to house us with plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The beds were all comfortable, air conditioning appreciated, and the outdoor space in back was heaven in the mornings and late evenings. We cooked a few meals and loved the 50's oven. We had everything we needed in the Stover house to make a wonderful family weekend beyond enjoyable. I'd recommend it to anyone from a romantic getaway to a small event, couples weekend, or family gathering.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your positive review and am happy to hear you and your group enjoyed Stover House! We think the ovens are great too and wonder why the design was ever changed away from the lift-up doors. I hope you will keep Stover House in mind and would appreciate any referrals to others you know traveling to Marfa.
