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.

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a nicer place to stay or nicer people to have as owner/operators. You have just about everything you need under one roof.

Convenient, very clean and functional

We enjoyed our stay here. It's a great choice if you're interested in exploring Big Bend National Park. There are a variety of nearby attractions. We especially liked Ft Davis, McDonald Observatory and the Museum of the Big Bend at the University. Kathy, thanks for sharing the Little Tin House.
