TWIN SISTERS RETREAT - CENTRAL TO THE BIG BEND AREA

Alpine Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Davis Mountains Views From This Three Bedroom Ranch-style Home

This spacious three bedroom, two bathroom house at the edge of Alpine is a perfect place for gathering with friends, spreading out with family, or finding solitude! The dwelling includes one room with a queen-size bed and private bathroom. The other bedrooms share the second bathroom. With a full-sized bed in one and two twin beds in the other, the floor plan is conducive to a variety of sleeping arrangements.

Wood floors and Western-decor welcome travelers to the house, but the highlight is truly the breath-taking West Texas vistas. With a climate that is generally lovely, guests may be hard-pressed to decide whether the landscape is best enjoyed through one of the many living area windows, from the front porch, or on the back patio. At night, the star-gazing is stunning, especially toward the southern sky.

The large, fully-stocked kitchen and outdoor gas-grill enable visitors to prepare home-cooked meals between trips to the many outstanding local restaurants. On Saturday mornings most of the year, a discerning chef can even find local produce at the Farmer's Market on Murphy Street. The dining room table can accommodate a romantic dinner for two or be expanded to seat eight or more people.

Whether a vacation in the Big Bend Region includes relaxation in comfortable surroundings, exploring small-town shops and restaurants, or excursions to remote West Texas locations, the Twin Sisters Retreat is flexible enough to meet most visitor's needs.

Tate and Tallie: Both of us are native Texans and have lived in and around Alpine for the past 25 years. We enjoy outdoor activities and jeep-touring, past-times abundant in the Alpine area. Tate is a rancher and saddle-maker and Tallie is a local school teacher.

Tate Altgelt purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

We love Alpine for the friendly people and relaxed atmosphere. This particular property is special for its proximity to town, but it is situated in an open pasture with a terrific view of the surrounding mountains. We enjoy staying in rentals like the Twin Sisters Retreat when we travel, therefore we tried to set up the ranch-style house so guests will feel at home.

QUICK TRIP

  • 5 of 5
On the spur of the moment, my daughter decided she wanted to visit Sul Ross U to see if she wanted to go to school in Alpine.

We looked on line and found this place. Since it was needed the next day, I thought I should call. I called and talked with Tate who was very accommodating. He worked with us and got everything worked out.

This place is very nice and has everything you need. My daughter said it was nice enough that she wouldn't mind living here while going to school.

The only changes I would make would be to add a deck overlooking the twin peaks, and plant a couple of pine trees to shade it.

You can't go wrong here. The people are very nice, & the house feels like your home away from home.

One other thought - you are only about 20 minutes from the Marfa lights.

OUR BIG BEND VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The home was exactly as described and is located in a peaceful area of Alpine. It is very spacious and clean with everything furnished imaginable. The owner was helpful and answered all of our questions. I would recommend this property to others. We visited the Railroad Blues bar to watch ESPN NCAA sports, we visited Big Bend several times and the drive is kind of far if your main trips will be Big Bend. We ate at Gussi-up a few times and the pizza was really great. Magoos has awesome breakfast. - There is a gun range next to the property so be prepared to hear some "bangs" while you are sitting on the porch. It isn't bad - just be aware you don't need to fire back and you are not under attack : ) - The neighbors are very quiet but were incredibly nice and helpful when they came over to introduce themselves. They gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to do. It was one of the best vacations we have had in a while.

PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We went out with a small group of friends (about 6) and had a great time. The house fit us all comfortably. Alpine was great and it was close to Marfs where we spent New Years, highly recommended.

FANTASTIC ALPINE CHATEAU!

  • 5 of 5
This warm, inviting 3 bedroom 2 bath rental was a perfect place to spend the holidays with friends and family as well as being situated in a perfect location to see the sights in the area and relax and enjoy the wonderful views surrounding the property. We had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible, and the owners were so welcoming and did everything possible to make us feel at home. The house is fully equipped with all amenities needed to ensure a home away from home atmosphere, with the utmost attention to cleanliness as well as being tastefully decorated. There was plenty of room for everyone to gather together and enjoy a family meal, watch TV, just visit and the house has enough space for the guests to retreat to their rooms and have some quiet time reading or catching up in cyberspace. It's a great place to watch sunrises/sunsets or for incredible stargazing views. I would highly recommend this house to others who wish to stay in the Alpine/Big Bend area, it's a great place for a romantic getaway or a family adventure.
