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.

Wonderful base-camp for Big Bend-area adventures

  • 5 of 5
My son and I had the great pleasure to stay for three nights in "the Bachelor" while our travel companions (2 adults and 2 kids) were in the Airstream over Thanksgiving weekend 2012. Dani and Sam were wonderfully attentive and gracious hosts. The unit was clean and full of features: a full kitchen (with office-sized fridge, stovetop & oven, coffee maker, sink, plus pots, pans, plates and bowls and all utensils); a fold-away table; and TONS of storage, including a closet with lots of drawers and a rod for anything you'd want to hang. The adjacent three-piece bath house (toilet, sink and shower) was far more spacious than I expected.

Honestly, the location can't be beat. All the "big" Terlingua sites (including the Starlight, cemetery, and shops) are just up the hill. The western entrance to Big Bend National Park is less than 30 minutes away, as is the eastern entrance to Big Bend State Park (and the magnificent River Road from Lajitas to Presidio).

Can't wait to book another visit!

Terlingua Retro Style!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was top notch retro style in the classic Airstream accommodations. The Views from our front door and out every window are spectacular and the hosts are first class. We very much enjoyed their hospitality. Their suggestions for fun to be had in the area were spot on. From the stables at the Lajitas Resort, dinner and live music at the Starlight, to Marcos Paredes the pilot who flew us over the National Park... everything was tip top. At night you could see a million stars crystal clear with shooting stars being common place while the Coyotes were yapping and howling in the distance. The coffee,the coveys of quail and the cactus wrens were a great way to start your every morning and there are several great hikes/bike rides right out the front door. The hosts have a couple of tenants who are very much worth your time to visit with if you happen upon them, especially Larry, great conversation and fellowship. The historic cemetery and the recent community garden is all spitting distance from your front door. The Hosts also run one of the best Veterinary clinics west (and east for that matter) of the Pecos and also one of the most unique art galleries in all of Texas. As far as culture, conversation, ambiance, nature and even shopping.... one need look no further than the Retro Airstream Experience in Terlingua!!

Great visit to Terlingua

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful visit to Terlingua. We enjoyed our stay in the Airstream. It was sparkling clean with a comfortable bed and everything we needed. The owners, Sam and Dani, were very friendly and helpful with any needs and with local information. It was such a convenient location. We could walk to ghost town Terlingua to tour the town and go to the trading post and the Starlight Theater for a refreshing drink. The restaurant at the Eldorado is also within walking distance and we had some great hamburgers there. Big Bend National park is only a short drive away and was beautiful. The drive past Lajitas along the Rio Grande is also very scenic. This location is convenient to both chili cook-off sites. One is only about 1 mile away and the other only about 6 miles away. We enjoyed the evenings sitting outside and watching the beautiful night sky. A good camping experience without having to drive a trailer out there. I would definitely stay again when visiting Terlingua.

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.
