About Kathy Bork

We came to the Big Bend from Austin in 2002, never expecting any visitors from our past. But we had so many visitors that we built a guest house for family, old friends, and new friends.

Kathy Bork purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathy Bork chose Big Bend

From The Little Tin Guest House it's an easy walk to the golf course, the city park and pool, the grocery store, and restaurants. And it's walking weather in Alpine almost any time of year.

What makes this house unique

Comfortable, open floor plan. Priced right. Perfect for 2 days or 2 weeks.

Welcoming, so perfect and private

  • 4 of 5

No surprises... the pictures of the place were true. We shared the house with another couple. The place had everything you needed to cook therefore we were very impressed. It was affordable and very nice to have a privacy fence to eat outside and plenty of space to park and close to town but yet felt like you were out of town. We set off the alarm several times when we used the oven broiler so don't use the broiler.

Simple, Affordable and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here comfortably as a family of 5 for our Big Bend/Ft Davis excursion. This place was the perfect fit and it is in a safe, quiet area of town. The owner has this property stocked with everything you would forget to bring and more! Great location with easy access to both Big Bend and Ft Davis. We will choose this property again on our next trip to the area.
