Lajitas Recreational Vehicle Rental Photos and Description

1970 31 ft Airstream Travel Trailer

Stay with us and see what Grandma was so thrilled about, located in the heart of the Historic Terlingua Ghost Town, 1/4 mile off Hwy 170, our 1970s Airstream travel trailer, we call Josephine after a Great Aunt, is all decked out for your visit. With a complete kitchen and bath, all the linens, an extra cozy hand made Afgan and an antique down comforter for the full size bed, any utensils for cooking you could need, or perhaps you would like to use the outdoor gas grill ( located in the Hobbit House Pavilion ) to whip up a juicy steak. Sit in antique outdoor rockers by your fire pit and feed Quail and Dove morning and nite, walk up to THE PORCH for a cool drink and listen to live music or dine in the Historic Starlight Theater. our Airstream is comfy and handy.

So head to the most unique vacation rental around, rustic and ready for you.

You and yours will have room to stretch & lot's to do.

With many dirt roads to walk you don't have to be a hiker to see it all. Just pack your bags and some groceries, ( bring your own fire wood/ or you can purchase from us.) we will provide the rest.

Why Danilea ( Dani ) Bottenfield chose Lajitas

We, like so many, moved here because we fell in love with the folks ( nun friendlier anywhere) and the wonderful motoring roads. Great Views and handy location to it all. We came to visit and just couldn't leave.

What makes this recreational vehicle unique

With wonderful views of the Mountains of the Big Bend National Park in the East and long stretches of open land all around, fall in love just as we did.

Four nights in an Airstream

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I've been in an Airstream. Once I got used to the space I found it comfortable. The trailer is clean, the bed was good, and everything worked. The owners are warm and welcoming, I enjoyed my time with them. I'll take this opportunity to thank them for their kindness.

Great location, great hosts, clean digs. Watching the birds and bunnies frolic in the yard each day added to the relaxing atmosphere-would definitely stay with Dani and Sam again.

The Airstream worked as advertised and the town of Terlingua was just plain fun. The owners took care of us very well.

Best place to stay in Terlingua!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay for our Big Bend adventure! Everything about it was a fit for our needs. You had everything you needed in the airstream but it still had an outdoor camping feel with the firepit and beautiful view. I was even able to hang my hammock and sleep outside under the stars. I will be using this place for every trip to Big Bend!

Charming stay in Terlingua ghost town

  • 4 of 5

The description is accurate and we would recomend the property to those who like a little adventure. It's not for everybody but if you don't mind a place with character this is for you.

The good:

Wonderful caring owners (Sam & Dani) who make your stay a joy

Close to all the activity in the Ghost Town

Sam and Dani left us a special gift at our arrival

Beautiful views of the surrounding area

The challenges

The cold desert nights overwhelm the heater. Be prepared for 50 degrees at night

Making dinner is real tight inside. We should have made use of the Hobbit House

Overall:

We love the charm and will return.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice words! We really enjoyed your visit, and promise to have a better furnace set up for the next. Yes RV kitchens are small, but the H.H. is there for just such a need. Can't wait to see you again. Dani

The Terlingua Ghost Town offers a central jumping off point for hiking, biking, motor cycling, horseback riding, shopping , galleries, live music, or watching the sun set in the east. This is an old mining town that offers, an insight into West Texas's past, our church has been restored and is often used for weddings. We love wandering the entire area and taking in the sights.
