5 Star Setting - 2.5 Star House
Great location! The view off the front porch is stunning! The living and dining areas are nice. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms really need updating. These rooms with their design and amenities are bare basic - old and tired. If WiFi is important - it was out the vast majority of our stay. We have AT&T cell phone service which did not work at the house but did just up the driveway. For us, this was not a big deal. The screened-in porch is not an inviting space. But price is good and we had a great time.
Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay in Lajitas House. I apologize that it has taken me so long to respond Like most guests you enjoyed the beautiful view from the west porch. The night skies are stunning too, on a clear night, since the house is far from city lights.
You mentioned poor cell phone signal at the house. While it is true a signal from a cell tower is not good, folks with smart phones can set their phones to “WiFi calling.” However, since the electrical power was out for four hours in the area during your stay, WiFi was not available for a short period in the house. I don’t understand why you did not have cell phone service most of your stay unless a lightening strike had also disrupted the phone service. Perhaps that was the problem. When WiFi is available, as it almost always is, cell phone service is quite good,
You mentioned that the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen are in need of updating. During the last several years we have added new window treatments, area rugs, headboards and mattresses in the bedrooms. We have remodeled the kitchen with new counter tops, appliances, and flooring. Further, the interior of the house has been completely repainted with warm desert colors. The bathrooms are scheduled for remodeling in the near future. Rather than old and tired we think of our house as cozy and comfortable. But home décor is a matter of personal opinion, like music and ice cream. As for the screened in south porch, that is a storage area. We do keep a few chairs and a table out there for folks who want to enjoy the fresh air and shade when the sun is beating down on the west porch.
We appreciate your candid feedback. We want to know what our guests think about their stay in Lajitas House. We take all comments seriously. Thank you for writing about your visit. We hope that you will stay with us again if you return to the Big Bend area.
Nice, clean house with good layout for two couples. Enjoyed All areas of Big Bend National Park and restaurants in area.
Thank you for your review. We hope you will stay with us if you visit the Big Bend country again.
Perfect little casita!
This home was warm, impeccably clean, filled with art and so many loving touches, and a perfect fit for our family of 6. We enjoyed our time here very much!
Thank you for your kind comments. We are always thrilled when our guests enjoy the house as much as we do. Please stay with us if you return to the Big Bend country.
Great house that was cozy and comfortable with great views.
A perfect week of weather for hiking in Big Bend National and State parks! The National Park trailhead to Mesa de Anguillas is worth the short steep hike up to the Mesa. House could use a little more cutlery and a couple more wine glasses but other than that the place is first rate.
We are very happy that you had a good experience in the Big Bend country. And thanks for the heads up about cutlery and wine glasses. I will visit the house next week and replenish all the supplies. Hope you will stay with us again. Thank you!
Fantastic location, cozy home, we had everything we needed during our four day visit. And the view !
We enjoyed our stay very much!
Thank you! Hope you'll come back to Big Bend country.
Fantastic Place to Come "Home" To
My boyfriend and I were traveling with my Mum and a friend (the octeeens). We traveled to the Big Bend area to see the park. First of all, that park is phenomenal!! But having this lovely home to return to every evening was fantastic!! We live in neighboring New Mexico so this was a road trip which meant we could bring food along and we loved having a kitchen large enough for all of us to be in it preparing dinners. We enjoyed ourselves so much! The house was super clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. I'm a snob about towels and this house delivered!! Both bathrooms were well-stocked and spacious. The house sits up on a hill overlooking the river and the night sky is beautiful!! Everything was as described and we couldn't be more pleased with all of it. I highly recommend this house. If you are driving in from Alpine, I would strongly suggest you hit the grocery store there. The little store in Lajitas is very pricey.
Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. This kind of feedback helps us to ensure that our guests have a wonderful adventure in the Big Bend.
Lajitas House, with thick walls constructed of native adobe, sits on a hill on the west side of Lajitas. The west porch offers a view of the Rio Grande and, across the river, Old Mexico. Evenings offer spectacular sunsets and on clear nights the heavens are resplendent with stars.
Other Activities: Rafting, canoeing, ATV, jeep tours, and shuttle services are available in the area. Even wine tastings and gourmet trips. Outfitters in the area include Far Flung Outdoor Adventures, Big Bend River Tours, or Desert Sports. The Barton Warnock Center on the east side of Lajitas is an excellent place to learn about hiking in the area.
