A charming solar/rain-catchment adobe and stone cabin in a prime location, very peaceful and private, with an unbeatable view of the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park. A small off-grid/solar/rain-catchment cabin. Also available is a separate campsite with a raised 15'x15' tent pad, a picnic table and fire pit. And NEW as of January 2017! A double bed located on a separate shaded patio near the guest house.
*Turn off ALL valves in the shower area after use. (Clockwise is off for all the valves.)
*No cactus/plant digging or rock collecting anywhere on the property, Unless you're ok with me coming to your house and helping myself to plants and rocks from your yard.
* While I do accept children, I make an acception for very young kids. There are too many ways a little child can get into mischief or hurt themselves here. Thanks for understanding.
*Dogs are sometimes allowed (under 50 lbs.), but you must provide a crate for your pet, your pet MUST be crated when you are not there with him. (A damage deposit of $100- fully refundable- is required upon your arrival. Failure to crate your pet inside the house when you are gone constitutes a forfeiture of your deposit.) Poop patrol is also appreciated.
*Please, no smoking indoors. Ashtrays are provided on the porch for those who must smoke.
*This house is on a rainwater collection system, which means every drop of water used is either harvested from rain that falls on the roof, or is physically hauled to the property by means of a tank on a trailer (and that's a job!). Please try to be mindful of this; leaving the water running down the drain while brushing your teeth is a cardinal sin. Close ALL SHOWER VALVES after use.Thanks in advance for being considerate!
*Please turn off lights and fan - ANYTHING electrical -when you go out in the evening, so as to conserve the batteries in the solar/electric system. This is especially important during the winter, when daylight hours are short and we're more likely to have overcast weather. There are some outdoor solar path lights, but flashlights are a must to carry when you come and go.
*Please do not bring any of your own appliances such as fans, hair dryers, medical devices, or multiple electronic toys. A fan is provided during the warm months.
* There is a fire ring to enjoy, as long as Brewster County is not under a burn ban, and there's also a chiminea on the porch which you can use anytime. Whatever you burn in the chiminea must actually fit inside it; otherwise you run the risk of cracking the chiminea lip. You may want to bring firewood with you (it's a scarce commodity in the desert), or you can purchase bundles of firewood at our local grocery store.
*There's a charcoal Weber grill, and while I don't provide charcoal and lighter fluid, guests often leave behind what they don't use. Ask; chances are there's a supply.
* No firearms will be permitted anywhere on the premises outside of your personal vehicle. Thanks for your cooperation.
The BIGGEST rule is to make yourselves at home!

I've been a resident of Terlingua 29 years. I came here initially to paint - I'm a watercolor landscape painter mostly - but fell in love with this country and decided to stay. I'm a horse person and have guided horse trips up to 3 days in length here in Big Bend country. In the past I have worked for the trails division in the national park as a mule packer, worked for the Wind River District of the U.S. Forest Service in Wyoming as a wilderness ranger, and worked for a river company here for 9 years. I once rode solo 900 miles from the Rio Grande River to Santa Fe, N.M. (Solo as in with 2 horses and my dog...) I've been know to play a Martin acoustic guitar and write songs... I built the Leapin' Lizard a bit at a time, as we mostly do here in Terlingua. That's the best way to create a labor of love.
