The adobe is perched high on the edge of Jack Eden Mesa in the Chihuahuan Desert. The rustic adobe overlooks the historic Comanche Trail and is built near an ancient Indian campsite as evidenced by metate's, stacked rocks and a petroglyph. This is a very remote location and will provide you with a unique, wild west experience not available many other places. The one room cabin has 4 twin beds. All water is captured rainwater and must be used conservatively. There is limited cell phone service.

Le logement
The mailing address is Alpine, but we are 85 miles south of there in Terlingua Ranch. This is NOT in Terlingua Ghost Town. It is almost an hour from there.
This home is remote and off-grid - about a 20 minute drive from the paved road. The road up the mesa is rough, but my wife makes it just fine in her Honda Civic. It is about a 50 minute drive to Terlingua Ghost Town and an hour drive to the west entrance of Big Bend National Park. This is a unique place for an adventurer to really get away and get a taste of the area. It will be a rustic experience - much better than camping, but still rough-cut. It is very quiet here if you like that, or you can make as much noise as you want. There is no one nearby!

The adobe features 4 twin beds, cushioned window seats, a table and 4 chairs. There is an indoor bathroom and a kitchen area. Linens and towels are provided. The shower is solar heated, so there is not much hot water available---none in the winter. The kitchen has a refrigerator (no freezer) and a gas stove top (no oven). It is stocked with cookware, plates, glasses and flatware. There is a stovetop percolator and a kettle. Coffee, tea and hot cocoa are provided. We also provide a "Mesa Mini Mart" box stocked with things people often forget and can purchase economically for their convenience.

There is a wood burning stove that keeps the adobe very cozy in the winter. We have plenty of scrap wood available to burn. In the summer, we have a couple of rotating floor fans that help. The adobe walls are 14" thick and provide a passive thermal mass for heating and cooling.

We are members of the Terlingua Ranch Lodge nearby (14 miles) where you can swim and take showers for $5 a carload. They have a restaurant that is open selected times. You can also take a shower at the motel in Study Butte (Big Bend Resort) for $2. This is right on the way to or from the National Park.

All water in the adobe is captured rainwater and is in limited supply. There is an indoor shower, but showers must be very short so there will be water available for other guests. We only get about 8" of rain a year.

We have filtered water for drinking, but if you are not comfortable with that, you might want to bring your own drinking water. Bring your own food. The nearest grocery store and gasoline is in Study Butte, about 45 minutes away. Also, you should fill up your car in Alpine and get last minute supplies there. The closer you get to the National Park, the more expensive everything is!

The house has solar power for lights and a CD player. You can charge your phone with our inverter. Your cell phone may not work in the house - but it might work outside in some places. In fact, once you drive south from Alpine, your service will get more and more sporadic. There are no TV, DVD or other electric appliances. We do have cards, poker chips and dominos.

If you have extra guests, we have 4 additional twin beds in a trailer near the adobe. It is very simple accommodations, but has a commode, sink and lighting. You can also charge a phone in the trailer.

Où se situe le logement

Terlingua Ranch , Texas, États-Unis

This site has amazing 360 degree views including the Chisos and Rosillo Mountains in Big Bend National Park and Nine Points Mesa and Santiago Peak to the north. Be aware that if you are bringing children under 10, this place is dangerous because of the cliff near the house! When we say it is perched on the edge, we mean it. We do not recommend climbing the rocks near the edge. One small step and you have about a 90 foot freefall before you hit the cactus and roll an additional 500 feet to the desert floor! Of course, there are rattlesnakes and other biting, stinging things. We are 1.5 hours from the nearest hospital.

I've been out in Terlingua Ranch off and on for over 11 years. My wife, Karol, and our kids helped me build an adobe house on Jack Eden Mesa and we also have a land art installation with VW vans and campers in a henge shape where we have primative camping.
