Terlingua House consists of three bedrooms and a complete kitchen. One of the bedrooms is equipped with queen-size bed and two full-size beds. One has a king-sized bed and a futon, and the other has two double beds.

The “Studio” has two double beds and a sitting area. The Studio is the “honeymoon suite” of the property with a beautiful view looking onto the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park.

The "Fairfax" room consists of a queen-sized bed and two full beds. This room has a sitting area with a loveseat and several chairs to enjoy getting away from it all, but with all the comforts of home. This room shares a bathroom with the Studio.

The "Gin" room, across from the kitchen, has a beautiful king-sized bed and futon, as well as two very comfortable chairs for relaxing in and taking in the amazing artwork. There is also a desk that doubles as a makeup table with lighted mirror. The Gin room has a large attached bathroom. The fourth room is the kitchen with a built in daybed on one end.

Terlingua House has a very quiet, secluded feeling for one couple, while still being only minutes away from the best restaurants and local activities. It is equally comfortable for two or three couples.

Although normal occupancy is two to six people, for families, extended families or small groups, Terlingua House is great. Terlingua House can easily sleep up to eight. Up to six people is preferred.

The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, outside gas grill, deep freeze, stove, microwave, dishes and silverware. We also have installed a dishwasher and new front loading washer and dryer. Complete linens and towels are also provided.

The property surrounding Terlingua House consists of 15 acres, including a great lookout point and a section of Long Draw running across one side of the property. It is easily accessible and easy to find along the River Road (TX 170).

The night sky is absolutely gorgeous, almost as nice as sunrise over the Chisos Mountains. You will find a telescope on location to enhance these spectacular views, but don't forget your binoculars.
