3BR House Vacation Rental in Terlingua, Texas

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Oct 6, 2019

Terlingua House (Big Bend Area's Original Guesthouse)

Located in: Terlingua
Terlingua House is located in the heart of the desert mountain country of West Texas. For the price of a nice single hotel room, this unique guesthouse is like having your own personal lodge for your trip. It is a three-bedroom, two-bath, adobe-style property with full kitchen; each located in a separate building. This unique layout enables you to socialize and dine together and retreat to the privacy of your own separate rooms for some solitude. It's almost like renting a small resort rather than just a vacation home or hotel room.

Although most come here to get away from it all, Terlingua House has all the comforts of home:

* Fully stocked kitchen with full sized fridge, stove/oven (apartment sized), microwave, dishwasher and all the dishes, utensils and cooking requirements one would need.
* Washers/dryers - exploring and adventure means you may need to do laundry
* Wireless Internet, cable TV (including big screen TV) - when you want to plug back in to the real world
* An upper level deck for mountain viewing and star gazing
* A beautiful, covered lower courtyard connecting two buildings; complete with 2 grills for cooking and dining outside
* An outdoor sitting area with fire pit (bring your own wood).

Stroll up the hill on the property and view the changing colors of the Chisos Mountains during the spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

Bedroom layout:

Gin Room - King and Futon with its own bathroom
Fairfax Room - Queen and two full beds
Studio - Two Full Beds
Fairfax and Studio share a bathroom

We find this property most comfortable for 6 people - 3 bedrooms, 3 couples. We have arranged the bedding so that we can accommodate up to 12 in beds and 16 if you count the futon and day beds in the kitchen. Note that there is a price increase beginning at 7 or more guests age 10 or over.

Value - For two guests this entire property is about the price of a nice hotel room in the city, if you are not on a strictly tight budget, you will be happy you are here. Dining out is expensive in the area, If you make use of the kitchen at all, you will likely find this makes up the difference. For four or more people you will find this is by far the best value in the area. You are on 15 acres, great views, TV, Internet, fire pit, great upstairs deck, city water, direct access to TX 170 highway. You are NOT confined between the tents, trailers or pre-fab "cabins" that have popped up in the years since we began this project. As they say, location is everything - we have a great location, all the amenities and reasonable pricing.

Terlingua House is located two miles west of Terlingua, Texas between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. This safe and secure 15 acre, semi-secluded property with easy access, has a grand view of the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park while still being only minutes away from restaurants and local river rafting, hiking, biking and jeep tour outfitters. Terlingua Ghost town is a couple minutes drive down the road. There's even a pizza place at the bottom of the road - an easy walk for dinner and drinks.

If you like Big Bend I am confident you will like Terlingua House. We strive to keep it cool, fun, functional and clean. After 14+ years we have many repeat customers, many recommendations and about once a year - a whiner! If you have never been to Big Bend, it is truly one of the most unique and fascinating areas in Texas, and the country for that matter - hence the national and state parks. It is also one of the most vast and remote areas in the country. It is - an adventure. Whether you stay with us or one of the other lodging accommodations in the area, go with the understanding that you will be, and we are working in, an area that teeters between the 21st century and the 19th century. This is part of the fun, part of the adventure - part of the allure of Big Bend.

The same applies for 'rent 2 get 2 free'. Also note that there is an additional per person charge for groups over 6.
