Lajitas House is in the historic Lajitas Resort area just 30 minutes from the beauty of the Big Bend National Park and 1 mile from the Big Bend Ranch State Park. Both parks have a variety of hikes and some truly spectacular scenery. Be sure to visit the local Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center on the east side of Lajitas for information and interesting exhibits.
Afterwords, relax in the shade of our front porch, enjoy the pristine view out across the shimmering Rio Grande River into the majestic mountains of Mexico or walk down the hill and sit by the river. Enjoy the peacefulness that underlies the Lajitas experience.
Lajitas House is within walking distance to the Lajitas boardwalk which offers shopping and a full service spa. Walk to the historic Lajitas Trading Post, which includes a deli, or to the Candellia, an excellent restaurant on the boardwalk where you can enjoy a meal in rustic elegance outdoors or in. The Thirsty Goat Bar offers a variety of libations in a comfortable and richly decorated environment.
A twenty minutes drive east and you are in the historic Terlingua Ghost Town. The world famous Chili Cook-off Championship occurs annually early in November. In Terlingua you can enjoy dining at The Starlight Theatre Restaurant and Bar and shopping at the Trading Post.
A short drive west from Lajitas House on the spectacular River Road (Texas 170) takes you through the magnificent vistas of Big Bend State Park and past historic Fort Leaton to the official border crossing at Presidio. On the Mexican side is the city of Ojinaga, site of the historic Battle of Ojinaga between the rebel soldiers of Pancho Villa and Mexican Federales.
Recently the crossing into Boquillas, a small Mexican border town on the Rio Grande Mexico became a reality. If you choose to make this adventure part of your Big Bend experience, you must have a passport. Boquillos is on the east side of Big Bend National Park. Remember: You must have an unexpired passport.
My husband and I loved sitting on the porch drinking our morning coffee. The views are spectacular. The house is clean and comfortable; so much better than a hotel. The owner was quite helpful and informative regarding nearby restaurants and things to do in the area. We had our grandkids with us and they enjoyed the stay. We will certainly stay here again.
We loved staying here! It was very relaxing and spacious for two couples, loved our front porch view! We will be back! Thanks so much for sharing your property.
This looked like a nice place inside, and it was. I made the statement several times before we arrived that I expected it to be a duplex, (I have no issues with a duplex) because of the outside picture that represents the property. I would say this property deserves someone taking pictures of the outside front and across the view. Great place with a huge porch for sitting out. Beyond the porch lies a view of the stars like never before seen. If I ever return to the area, I would love to stay there again.
This property worked out great for our party of 4.
We spent the days exploring Big Bend, and enjoyed the sunset from the porch.
Everything was in order, and communication with the property manager was great.
Wonderful property. It is a small home very, very close to Lajitas Resort and you can use all the amenities at the resort for the same price as resort guests. The view from the porch was beautiful. It overlooked the river and the mountains showing a side of Texas that we should all see. The home itself was very comfortable and clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all amenities for a short or long stay. And having wireless and Direct TV was a lifesaver for the teens and anyone who needs to stay in touch. I would most highly recommend the home and location. We are a family of 4 total ( 2 are teenagers) and we need and or prefer a much larger space on vacation than one or even two small hotel rooms so the home was perfect for that and saved a lot of money over 2 hotel rooms at the resort. Thanks for a great place to stay in Lajitas!
This was our second stay in this home. The views are breathtaking. If you do nothing more than sit and look out over the Rio grande or watch the big horn sheep up on the plateau, your stay will be wonderful. Clean home with all amenities you need. I would not waste time eating at resort. Bring in your own food or go to Boquillas and enjoy the restaurants. Try Pesado Milagro or Long draw pizza in Terlingua. A raft ride on the Rio Grande is a must as well as a visit to the Big Bend Park up in the Chisos Mountains. This home is a perfect resting place at the end of every day. Get prepared to watch shooting stars and the milky way every night! Can't wait to return.
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.
