Casa de Amigos (House of Friends) had been my home for the last 25+ years. She just got a "new dress" -- with new windows, Saltillo tile flooring and additional air conditioning/heating. She offers the unique local lifestyle in the Ghostown with just enough upgrades for a more comfortable experience . There are 2 separate bedrooms, both with Queen beds: the “master” is loft-like with very nice window views of the Chisos Mountains, the 2nd room is traditional mining style - cozy with small windows (walk-in). The private courtyard is the perfect space to sit back and relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and "TAKE IT ALL IN"...! It offers fantastic views for miles, has a fire pit area and offers excellent stargazing and sunrises. It's also great for outdoor cooking & dining. The private bathhouse has a 4-season fully enclosed outdoor shower with a window view of the Chisos Mountains peaking over a privacy wall (curtain available) and a "blue sky" flush toilet. There is both indoor and outdoor dining areas. The kitchen has a stove/oven, full size fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, dishes, basic cooking necessities and a sink. There is also a gas grill in the courtyard. Keeping in mind that there are several restaurants within walking distance for a cook-free vacation.

-The loft-like bedroom is accessed with a custom built slightly angled ladder. (Pictured)
-Ghostown mining ruins have notoriously low ceilings (7’ +/-) and door ways (6’ +/-).
-There are just a few flag-stoned steps from the house thru the private courtyard to the bathhouse. (pictured)
- We have completely enclosed the outdoor shower to make it usable year-round with heat in the winter. It still has that outdoor rustic charm with a window view of the distant mountains over a privacy wall; or you can simply pull a curtain closed if it makes you more comfortable.
-The "Blue Sky Potty" (flush toilet) is located in the roofless part of the bathhouse. You'll need to be prepared to take care of business quickly during inclement weather. That being said, our winters are generally mild and a quick trip is usually fairly tolerable. This is a feature that some love and others may not find suitable. (Pictured)
-There is a sink and mirror in the enclosed shower space for shaving/brushing teeth, but there are no plugs - so you'll need to go back to your room for a vanity area.
-We provide large "bath sheets" (no robes).

If you have a group of more than 4 - please see our other listing "Mamacita's Casita". It has room for 2 more and is next door with a quick walk over.

"Amigos" is easy to find - with a very short drive off the closest blacktop in the Ghostown (not on the highway). We are on the grid with WiFi, electricity & community water (tap water is fine to drink).

The Historic Terlingua Ghostown is the heart of Big Bend and is a short 10 minute drive from Big Bend Nat'l Park's west entrance for hiking, canoeing, exploring, photography, birding; and a 15 minute drive to the Big Bend Ranch State Park for the best scenic drive along the river, more hiking, exploring and miles of mountain bike trails.

We have made every effort to comply with the "Dark Sky" initiative and ask that all lights be turned down or turned-off when not in use. The community’s efforts in this manner will keep us one of the darkest skies in the U.S. and provide great stargazing from the courtyard and the recliner chairs in the fire pit area. Facing East, you'll also have fabulous views of the Chisos Mountains and a greater opportunity for terrific sunrises and sunsets.

We have single kayaks available exclusively for our guests (see pictures). Depending on the time of year and water levels, there are 3 to 4 sections of river that can be paddled half or full day. If you are interested, let us know.

"This house was an absolute delight for our stay! Once you overcome the trepidation about an outdoor toilet and shower, it is actually really great!! They had just installed a toilet seat heater that came in handy even during a winter storm, and their enclosed and heated shower room was one of the best parts of the place! We enjoyed every below freezing night around their fire pit because the view and ambiance is worth it! Thank you Lanetta and Jared for being so warm, welcoming and helpful during our stay!"

Où se situe le logement

Terlingua, Texas, États-Unis

Casa de Amigos is located in the Historic Terlingua Ghostown. Our little covey of homes is lovingly called “Barnesville” by the locals. As my father, "Barnes", was one of the first to make the Ghostown his home in the early 70s. We are very close to restaurants, entertainment, gift shops and art galleries, yet far enough away to provide a private space - while still being close to everything the Big Bend has to offer....!

I was raised in Big Bend and have lived in Terlingua, TX most of my adult life. My heart has always been in the Big Bend. My husband works as a river guide and has many river miles under his belt. Between us - we can help you plan a great stay in Big Bend!

Pendant votre séjour

Until current circumstances change, we plan to give our guests a wide berth. We prefer social distancing, but will wear a mask if you want. Check-in is super easy, no contact required. But we may pop-by for a quick visit to make sure you have everything you need (from a distance). Send us a message if you have a question or maintenance issue - we are not too far away. We do ask that our guests respect the privacy of neighboring residents. In time - we will return to our usual greeting and sharing of 45+ years of living in the Big Bend.
