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. If you don't feel like walking, The Little Tin Guest House provides 2 mountain bikes and helmets.

What makes this house unique

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

You thought of EVERYTHING in The Little Tin House. Great easy access, so close to town, anything and everything we could need in the kitchen and bath. Thank you. We loved our stay!

Great place to stay

The place is very private, quiet, and has all of amenities which you can desire: two bedrooms, nice bath, full kitchen and living room, WiFi, and satellite television. It's a perfect place for a weekend or an extended stay.

very happy

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with this little house. It's in a quiet area of town, AWAY from the train tracks (which will wake you up overnight if you're too close). Most of the neighbors had privacy fencing, so the house feels somewhat secluded even though it's in a residential area. The bikes were really useful, as a car is not needed within Alpine. For my boys, being able to bike to the store added to the novelty of the whole experience. We borrowed a 3rd bike from a friend so we could all ride together. The property was impeccably clean, and had all the kitchen / bathroom amenities needed. This will be my first choice house in the future.

Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean home in a perfect location. The process was easy and Kathy was always very responsive. Alpine is a great launching point for many day trips. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely stay in the little tin home again. Thanks Kathy.
