Overview

About the property

1Bedroom /1 Bathroom Guesthouse-Sleeps 2

A newly-built guesthouse with the feel of the Old West.

We are located far enough out of Alpine to give you a rural feel, but in reality being just minutes from downtown, this studio guesthouse gives you the best of both worlds. This is our guesthouse, and sits approximately 30 feet from our house. The patio shown is part of our house. However, we are very respectful of your privacy, and all of the facilities are yours to use during your stay.

Sit out on the large covered porch and enjoy watching the quail and other wildlife, or visit with our own assortment of livestock. We are pet-friendly, and can even board horses for a small fee.

After you have enjoyed your day, relax around a fire in the fire pit, or soak in the hot tub while watching the sky for shooting stars and satellites. If you feel like cooking outside, there is a gas grill available, or you can BBQ over the fire in the fire pit.

Inside the guesthouse, you will experience the warmth of rustic and the comfort of modern from the custom-built cedar furniture and cabinetry to the knotty-pine vaulted ceiling, along with the wall of windows opening onto a fantastic view of Alpine against the mountains. The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, sink, cook-top, and pantry. It is equipped with a microwave, toaster oven, automatic coffee-maker, toaster, and cooking utensils.

The queen-size custom-built bed has plenty of storage space under it in case you want to stay awhile.

The television is a 32-inch flat screen with satellite service and a DVD player.

The guesthouse is climate-controlled with a whisper-quiet heating and cooling system.

The modern, spacious bathroom includes a large walk-in shower, and a vanity with plenty of counter space. There is also a hair dryer, and an iron and ironing board.

If we are booked, or you are looking for something a little bigger, please check out our sister property, listing #923603.

Come stay outside the box, and experience the true West Texas.

Lovely Days in Alpine

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts provided a super VRBO that we enjoyed immensely! It was updated, airy and very clean with a great bed. We loved being outside of town, but so very close, and the sunsets were awe inspiring. (We miss Shadow and.....the chickens, too.) We will return :)

Great 50th Birthday getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. Great weather while we were there. The cabin is very well built and furnished. We had a great stay; cooked several of our own meals(saved on eating out). We took in the Marfa Lights, Fort Davis, and we spent one day in the Big Bend National Park at the Chisos Mountains hiking. We want to say thank you to our host for sharing their property with us! They even provided us with farm fresh eggs to cook for breakfast! We did get acquainted with the animals. Very relaxing place and a million stars to look at each night.

Peaceful and gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lisa’s place and it’s absolutely gorgeous. 5 minutes outside of Alpine but you feel so much further. You have a gorgeous view of the mountains and when we arrived the chickens and goats ran up to see us (Behind a fence for anyone scared) which was a lovely welcome! The place is amazing, has everything you need and more importantly a hot tub that looks out to the mountwins, Lisa also left us wairy wine and chocolates which was a nice touch. In short, book this place you won’t be disappointed.

Car: necessary

Located on the Fort Davis Hwy., we are just minutes away from downtown Alpine, Sul Ross University, restaurants, and shopping, including boutique art galleries and gift shops. Alpine is the gateway to Big Bend National Park, along with historic mining towns such as Terlingua(famous for its annual Chili Cookoff) and the bordertown of Lajitas with its championship golf course. To the west of Alpine is Marfa, filled with many historic buildings and a growing art community. In between Alpine and Marfa is the famous Marfa Lights visitors' center. North on the Fort Davis Hwy., along the Texas Mountain Trail, is the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute, which features native plants of the Chihuahuan Desert located in a gorgeous canyon setting. Further down the road is the historic town of Fort Davis, just 20 minutes from us. While there, you can explore the actual Fort Davis, which is a National Historic Site. Fort Davis is filled with charming shops and restaurants that add to its Western flair. A little further up the road is the McDonald Observatory, where you can attend their famous Star Parties, or just take a tour. The Fort Davis Highway is used by both bicyclists and motorcyclists as a year-round scenic ride. There are so many activities to enjoy in this area, and we are located right in the heart of it all.
