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 Alpine

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.

Adorable

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling to Marfa for the weekend and were able to snag this guesthouse super-last minute. I was initially bummed about staying in Alpine due to the distance, but as soon as we got to the guesthouse we were ecstatic! This place is perfect for a small group and has a full kitchen that we used the entire time (we made nearly all our meals rather than going out).

The owner was super responsive and gave us all important information before I could even ask.

Also, the neighbor beside us offered us freshly grown pomegranates! I highly, highly recommend this place!

West Texas Charm

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Little Tin House. The owner's description is accurate. The house was just what we needed for our visit...walking distance to town and the grocery store, the right amenities for the kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and a quiet neighborhood. There was a major thunderstorm while we were here, but the house is well insulated so we did not hear the rain pounding on the tin. Adding to the charm was pomegranate trees in bloom. I would definitely stay here again.

Neat little house in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean house with everything you need. Minutes from the Sul Ross campus and a short walk from all the shops and restaurants of town. Modern house and amenities. Comfortably sleeps four adults with a full kitchen and bath.
