Overview

About the property

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 Marfa Home

  • 5 of 5

Windmill Retreat is super sweet. Fantastic sunrise views, ideal location, oustanding book collection, everything you need in the kitchen, lots of nice towels, a comfortable bed, lovely details throughout the house. It's easy to feel the love that went into the restoration of this home. We can't wait to return. Many thanks to Jon and Diane for sharing their beautiful place.

A perfect retreat on the quiet edge of town

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 3 nights at the Windmill Retreat! Such a relaxing spot to come home to after time at the Marfa Myths festival. We loved sitting on the porch watching the weather roll past in the distance. Also pleased to say that while the middle-of-the-night trains are an unavoidable part of Marfa, the Windmill Retreat was at enough of a distance that the noise wasn't a problem. Thanks so much for sharing your home, we look fwd to returning.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent the month of August in the Windmill House and found it to be perfect. So much thought was put into to making it most comfortable and user friendly for the renter. It's spare, in the positive Marfa kind of way, but all of the essentials are provided. Furniture and bed is comfortable, kitchen well equipped, WiFi excellent, air-conditioner efficient, linens high-quality. The house was impeccably clean on my arrival and very easy to maintain. And the view from the porch is magnificent! When I first arrived I was concerned that the house seemed to be located on the edge of town. But after spending a month there I realized the location is ideal. I'm female and spent the month alone in the house and felt totally safe. It's about a six minute walk to the main street of town and the advantage of the location is absolute quiet and unobstructed eastern views. I spent hours in the butterfly chairs on the porch just watching the sunrise, Texas storms rolling through, rabbits frolicking in the grass, road-runners bouncing around and Hummingbirds feeding on the flowers. The landscaping around the house is perfectly suited to the environment. The owners could not have been more communicative and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend the Windmill House to anyone who is looking for the quintessential Marfa experience.
