Overview

Marfa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Windmill Retreat is a fine example of authentic adobe architecture situated on a hill in Marfa's northeast section with lovely views of the Fort Davis mountains and a short walk from Marfa town center.

This charming 100 year old adobe has been recently renovated, integrating modern conveniences while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture, including an old wooden windmill structure on the property. Minimally yet comfortably furnished, the one bedroom, one bath home features a queen-sized bed, a full sleep sofa, and a large gourmet kitchen with new modern appliances and accessories, ideal for cooking and entertaining. Hanging on the walls is contemporary art by established local artists from galleries in Marfa.

The east porch is bathed in beautiful morning light, and features a table that comfortably seats eight. The enclosed west garden affords privacy off the Master bedroom, comfortable Adirondack chairs, and small copper fire pit/grill, as well as indigenous blooming flowers and aromatic plants.

Windmill Retreat offers privacy with mature Pinon trees, and a peaceful surround...perfect for writers, artists, designers and creative people. (Three Night Minimum)

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Windmill Retreat! The house was perfect for two and felt like our own home away from home. We enjoyed spending nights on the porch and having breakfast in the courtyard. One thing I was worried about was the bathroom (only because there weren't pictures), but it was great and up to the standards of the rest of home. This place is so charming and really made our stay in Marfa that much better! We unfortunately had some rainy days, but having this house to cozy up in was just perfect! I would highly recommend!

Charming and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Windmill Retreat. The house was perfectly tidy and exactly as advertised on the site. Hosts have excellent taste in furniture, books and art. House had everything we needed; full kitchen, clean towels, great shower. Very convenient to have a washer/Dryer too. It was perfect.

The east porch is fantastic to experience the sunrise and the sounds of the neigbor's goats is a bonus. Perfectly located just at the edge of town , yet walking distance to everything. Our Hosts were quick to answer any questions . Highly recommended!!! Thank you.

Refreshing and lovely

  • 5 of 5

Simple, imaginative, attractive, efficient. We found it just as described in the listing. This beautiful place is super clean, yet has the warmth of a home. The owners have perfectly channeled the Marfa vibe in their choice of furnishings, books, landscaping and attention to detail. It is aptly called a retreat, for though it is in town it feels remote when you are sitting on the porch, surveying the landscape and listening to the peaceful sounds of the wind and the birds. We came to Marfa mainly to see the Chinati collection; this lovely bungalow made it a seamless experience.

A perfect place to stay in Marfa.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Marfa at the wonderful Windmill Retreat. Everything was perfect- just as shown in the photos. The house has been lovingly restored, is very comfortable, and has everything you would need. We so enjoyed our "porch time" - the view of the mountains Is wonderful. The house has an amazing library, and the location was perfect. It was home base for us as we explored Marfa, Ft. Davis, Alpine, Big Bend and all points in between. We will definitely come back to the Windmill Retreat.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable home! My boyfriend and I were in town for the Marfa Film Festival and loved every minute of our stay. The house is perfect for two people - we had everything we needed and more; not to mention, it was spotless. We loved watching the sunrise from the porch every morning. The location is easily within walking distance to most everything if you're not lazy like us (we drove everywhere for the most part). Thank you so much to the homeowners for such a wonderful time!
