About Robert Spiegel

I bought this home in 2004. I've owned a few vacation rentals, and I travel a lot so I understand what is important when you are away from home! My home base is Houston, Tx where I have lived for 17+ years. Prior to that I lived in Boston.

Why Robert Spiegel chose Big Bend

I fell in love with Marfa on my first visit. This home is just the perfect getaway and I've enjoyed owning it. I've also met some of the coolest people who've been guests at the home.

What makes this house unique

This home is in a really great location in a quiet neighborhood. It is convenient to the center of town and all of the attractions in Marfa. There is ample parking, plenty of space, and this is not just some 'mediocre' vacation rental. It is a home that has been designer furnished and is so amazingly comfortable for your stay. Everyone who visits loves this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I’ve been meaning to tell you that we had an amazing time in Marfa. The house was PERFECT!!! We absolutely want to go back and will be hoping to stay at 608. Thank you so much for having such a great house there. Hope all is well with you.

Comfortable home base while in Marfa & surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed for 3 nights and found the property to be very clean, well stocked, and the beds comfortable. It was family-friendly and even had games to appease the kids. The location was on the edge of a neighborhood and a quick drive to anywhere in Marfa or to hop on the highway to explore other nearby towns.

  • 5 of 5

Whether you aim to remember history or forget it, live at large or only get away for the weekend, write your novel or just find a great place to read one , Marfa|608 Guest House is the place to stay. The list description with accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner went above and beyond when we had questions or any issues with the property. I would recommend Marfa|608 Guest House to anyone looking to visit Marfa and take it all in.

Our wonderful stay at Marfa's Best-Chic and Comfortable guest house

  • 5 of 5

My son, grandsons and I had a great time in Marfa and Big Bend. Between our adventures, we relaxed and enjoyed Robert's guest house. It provided us all the comforts of home. We loved sitting around the fire pit in the back yard and star gazing (a gorgeous moonless night that showcased a canopy of stars over us). Since my grandsons are now in college, the experience helped bond us as they spoke about all their new adventures. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts at Squeeze Marfa and Marfa Burrito. Of course, we were thrilled to see the Pizza Foundation back in business! Robert's home provided us with all we needed for a trip filled with memories. Thank you, Judy Furche

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

This house was just as described. It was a perfect amount of space for 8 people without feeling crowded. The beds were very comfortable and overall the house was perfect for what we needed. Robert was great to work with on getting everything set up and answering all of our questions. Thank you!
