This unique home was professionally designed (by a Terlingua resident) for this specific spot in the Terlingua Ghost Town and completed in 2015. It is the personal home of a Terlingua bachelor who is out of town at various times of the year.
Full glass wall in front for an excellent view of the Chisos Mountains for sunrises and sunsets, 3 restaurants and 3 bars within easy walking distance, 10 miles to Big Bend National Park entrance, 800 SF of living space plus 500 SF of porches, unbelievably comfortable king size bed in main bedroom, king size bed in 2nd bedroom, sofa/futon in living room, the most unique bathroom in Terlingua (with a large rain shower, a floor to ceiling window to the outside, a privacy wall outside of about 3 tons of rock, and a stripper pole (for decoration purposes only!), WIFI access, pool table, dart board, disco ball, and cots outside for sleeping under the stars! Kitchen has 2 small refrigerators (no freezer), microwave, toaster oven (no full oven), 2 Nuwave induction cooktops, ice maker, coffee pot, BBQ grill, and complete kitchen utensils. There is no TV and never will be - watch the Chisos or Sky channel!
You will have access to the entire house (only the main bedroom has air conditioning) There are ceiling fans and space heaters for the rest of the house. Cross breezes are abundant with the doors open.
Interaction with guests
I will be available for anything you may need during your stay. Feel free to contact me.
Other things to note
There are several Sports Illustrated Swimsuit calendars and similar pictures throughout the house (the home belongs to a bachelor).
Terlingua is in the desert. There are rattlesnakes - watch where you walk and use a flashlight when it is dark. There are also all sorts of interesting bugs to sting you, and flies can be a real nuisance at certain times of the year - always keep screen doors closed. If you are bothered by dust, you may be more comfortable at the Holiday Inn in Alpine.
Guests must be 21 or older
NO CHILDREN OR PETS ($100 FINE FOR UNAUTHORIZED PETS)
Smoking is allowed inside
NO FIRES OF ANY KIND (WE ARE UNDER A BURN BAN)

I've lived in Terlingua for 15 years and am a river guide, hiking guide, waitress and birder. I love this area with all my heart. If you have any questions, please let me know!
