Terlingua House Rental Photos and Description

Main House has 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 shower, sleeps 6 to 8, Bunk house sleeps 4

This extremely comfortable three bedroom vacation rental house near Terlingua has excellent views, lots of room inside and out, and easy access to area attractions. The owners have Native American artifacts, an expansive rock collection, and locally inspired art displayed throughout the house.

We also have a bunk house with a queen bed and a bunk bed with two twin beds, bathroom with shower if needed at an extra $50 nightly.

Views include Christmas Mountains, Hen Egg Mountain, numerous rock formations, and many other hills and mountains.

Water and feed is provided for the abundant wildlife. Sit out on the front or back porch and enjoy the fantastic views while watching birds, quail, mule deer, aoudads, lizards, and lots of other wildlife. Enjoy the sights and smells of the desert plant life such as ocotillo, several varieties of flowering cactus, creosote, agave, sotol, yuccas, wildflowers, and native grasses. Take a walk around the property for a closer look at the desert.

At night, turn off the lights and be amazed by the Big Bend night skies. Cook out on the gas grill while enjoying total solitude and privacy. As a guest at a Terlingua Ranch property, you will also have access to hundreds of miles of dirt and rock roads across the 200,000 acres of Terlingua Ranch plus the pool at the lodge.

Inside the house, enjoy all modern comforts, including AC/heat, full kitchen, two baths, three comfortable bedrooms, cozy dining area, spacious living room, satellite TV in the living room and master bedroom, wireless internet, and a full sized washer and dryer.

Rancho Mula Oso is an ideal vacation property. Hang out in the comfort of the home. Enjoy the remote property with desert plant, wildlife, and views. You'll never have to leave the property. But, you'll probably want to check out the national park, the state park, the river, the ghost town, or just enjoy a scenic drive. Do as much or as little as you like. Either way, you will want to come back.

Due to concerns from neighbors and potential liability, we must prohibit discharge of any firearms on the property for any reason.

About Janet Eby

I have been retired for a number of years and wanted a place in the Big Bend since 1971 when I first visited at the age of 18. We purchased the property our home now sets on in 1981 and put up the house in 2007. We spend our time between our main home in Katy, TX, our sons home in San Marcos and out here. I love it out here in the Texas Outback. So peaceful, so calm.

Janet Eby purchased this house in 2007

Why Janet Eby chose Texas

This home site was selected from hundreds of acres and several other possible home sites to take advantage of the marvelous views, abundant wildlife, beautiful desert plants, easy road access, and privacy.

What makes this house unique

This house provides a perfect escape from the stresses of modern life, but is close enough to the highway and Terlingua to avoid being cut off from society.

Great unexpected stay

  • 4 of 5

We never actually planned to come here but heavy rain at the beginning of our stay meant we could not access the LTM house and we were offered this as a replacement house. whilst not as aesthetically beautiful the house became an excellent base for exploring big bend national park.We enjoyed breakfast and sunrise on the veranda enjoying making waffles with the machine provided, we also enjoyed a sunset BBQ. The birds, deer and jack rabbits provided plenty of entertainment and we had the bonus of enjoying some of team GB success at the Olympics as we had the TV. this was a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay and although we left to try out the LTM ranch when the weather improved we could easily have remained here. in a way we ended up with the perfect mix of the two houses. a wonderful stay in Terlingua and many thanks to Janet & family for advising us to adapt our plans and checking that we were having a great stay at both properties.

A great value!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was wonderful. It is fully stocked with all that is described and then some. We came for Big Bend NP and Mula Oso was a perfect base to explore from as it is located only a few minutes from the western gate to the park. I saw numerous new birds I had not seen before right on the property. My family and I also saw a rattlesnake, deer, quail, jackrabbits and we heard javelinas all from the front and back porches of the house. We sat on the front porch at night and saw the stars as you do not see them in populated places because there is little light pollution in the area, quite a show. The owners provided clear, comprehensive directions to and instructions for the home prior to our arrival. Big Bend is really a jewel in our National Park system and Mula Oso was perfect for our visit. We highly recommend La Kiva restaurant out near the ghost town as well.

Awesome property, couldn't have asked for anything better.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome property! Very well equipped/stocked with all of the essentials. It was better than I had expected in every way (i.e. better than a lot of other vacation rentals that I have rented over the years.) Couldn't be happier with our experience.

Great

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Wish there was a pool closer,and would have love to see some wildlife. I don't think a mouse counts, although we did see a rattlesnake. Would go back for sure. Lajitas golf course is beautiful.

Best place to stay at Big Bend!

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Mula Oso has everything! Location, great outdoor sitting areas, well stocked kitchen....the list is endless. We enjoyed the gas grill and being able to cook meals as eating out in the area is limited. The house is very comfortable with all you need for a short or long stay.

As stated the location is great as the house is 15 minutes from Big Bend park and 10 minutes from Terlingua.

The owners make is easy as they email you directions and instructions before your arrival.

We were totally pleased and would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend it.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with Rancho Mula Oso...it exceeded our expectations! The home was beautiful, spacious and filled with paintings, sketches, arrowhead and rock and book collections. The kitchen was well stocked, the living room and bedroom furniture so comfortable. The front and back yards were huge with pretty scenery, rock formations, and all kinds of cactus plants. The parking area was big and accommodated our truck and motorcycle trailer.

We enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets from the front porch and several sitting areas around the front and back yards.

Our dogs loved the property, too!

Before our arrival, we received an email with directions and information.

We were totally pleased and would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend it.

Happy Campers from MS
