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.

The space

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!

Guest access

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.

Great location, nothing fancy , but very comfortable. If summer be prepared for air-conditioner to support only one room. Comfortable beds . Nice bathroom. Priced right . Will stay there again in the future.

The miller lite house was in a great location, we were able to walk to things like the starlight theater and local coffee hub. House was cute and spacious, definitely had bachelor/ party dad vibes ( in the most charming way). Sandi was incredible attentive to our questions and was a great host.

Outstanding way to stay in the Terlingua area. Our trip could not have been better. I will rent this house every time I come, if it is available.

The place is very conveniently located in the Terlingua ghost town. We were able to walk to a restaurant with great food and service. The place is in a very scenic area with plenty of views. The only issue was the constant odor that the restroom seemed to have due to lack of ventilation or other reasons. The place was rather not very clean in general, but this didn't impact our experience too much!
