About Barbara Tennant
Owners are architects and builder of the property. While new construction in Marfa is a challenging undertaking, the result is well worth the effort.
Barbara Tennant purchased this House in 2005
Why Barbara Tennant chose Marfa
We fell in love with Marfa on our first visit and traveled back to the town from Houston two weeks later to purchase land and begin our project. The sun is dependable in Marfa. Days are always bright and nights are cool in the summer. The landscape of this area includes broad vistas that inspire artists and photographers.
What makes this House unique
Our home, situated at a highpoint outside of town offers an amazing view of the surrounding plateau. The home is cozy and has everything you may need for a comfortable stay. A Rumford fireplace in the living area adds to the relaxing atmosphere in the winter. The 14' adobe walls keep the home cool and comfortable in the summer months. Sit in the middle of the south courtyard on a moonless night and ponder the Milky Way.

A terrific house, in the perfect location for resting the eyes & the mind. Though we didn't meet, Barbara is wonderful. We arrived in the area in the dark, got a bit lost, and Barbara patiently gave us directions over the phone. We loved this place. And Marfa ain't bad either.
A tranquil respite!
Tastefully appointed, this beautiful high desert retreat offered us the chance breathe in stars, sunsets, and sky. We were thankful each day to return from our adventures to this tranquil respite. We’ll be back, but, next time, we will plan to stay longer.
This is a one-of-a-kind experience
I understand that people generally want to stay right in the middle of town so they can walk to everything, but this is only a few miles from the center of town (5 minute drive, at most) and has some of the best views you will ever see in your life. There is no other house available for rent that will provide something similar. Pictures do not do the landscape justice. Anyone visiting Marfa should seriously consider this house. The owners are flexible and super cooperative.
Quite, peaceful, serene.....i loved staying here. The climate....the home...the rabbits!
A quite peaceful home minutes from downtown marfa....shhhh dont tell anyone..;)
Great peaceful stay in west Texas desert.
We had a wonderful, albeit short, family vacation, full of evening cookouts and star gazing. The house made it seem longer than a 3 day weekend. The house is close to Marfa, but still far enough away to feel like you're in the middle of the desert. The views from the patio are fantastic. The house is nicely designed and comfortably furnished, with lots of great artwork. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. The patio with new Weber grill made our evenings, as we were able to cook outside both nights.
Beautiful house, wonderful experience
Just a few minutes outside Marfa but with the full exquisite silence of the desert, antelopes, jackrabbits.. Very comfortable and beautiful property and experience. Thank you!

The sun rises and sets an hour later than regular CST because we are at the edge of Mountain time. Wonderful place to relax and get away from it all!
