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)

Windmill Retreat

The Windmill Retreat was cozy, comfortable house that is a short walk from the center of town. We enjoyed our morning cup of coffee watching the sunrise from the patio. Would definitely stay here again!

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.
