Photo 1 of Big Bend/Terlingua, Texas Vacation Rental House


TerlinguaHouse offers a fantasic view of the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park while still having easy access and located close to the restaurants and outfitters of the area.

Terlingua House is a 4-room, 2-bath adobe styled property located 2 miles west of Terlingua, Texas between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend State Park.

Terlingua House consists of three bedrooms and a complete kitchen. Two of the bedrooms are equipped with queen-size beds, one also has a single bed with roll out trundle. The “Studio” has one double bed and 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 fourth room is the kitchen with a built in daybed on one end.

Terlingua House has a very quite 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, if your party is more than six, please contact us to discuss the details.

The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, outside gas grill, deep freeze, stove, microwave, dishes and silverware, but there is no dishwasher, if you want to cook but don’t want to wash dishes, please bring paper and plastic. 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.

Terlingua House is located about half way between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend State Park about 2 miles west of Terlingua Ghost Town. It is situated on an interesting geologic feature (cuesta) with an excellent view of the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park. On the southern line of the 15 acre property, just across Long Draw, is the shear 300 foot limestone cliff of Reed Plateau. On the adjoining property to the west you will find Long Draw Pizza (Wed-Sun, 5-9), where Nancy insists on making all of the pizzas herself to ensure the best pizza to go with the ice-cold refreshments.

Within approximately an hour’s drive of Terlingua House:

The River Road (Texas 170). Terlingua House is actually located on River Road, but an hours drive west up the river road gets you nearly to Fort Leaton (near Presidio) along the best road in Texas. Don’t miss the chance!
Big Bend National Park Headquarters – in the Basin Ross Maxwell Drive and Santa Elena Canyon
Boquillas Canyon

Within 2 Hours drive of Terlingua House:

Sauceda – The original ranch headquarters for the Big Bend State Park before it was a park. The trek up to Sauceda will give you a chance to try out your SUV and gate opening abilities. Don’t forget your permits from Ft Leaton or Barton Warnock Center.
Presidio and Ojinaga, Mexico – We recommend lunch at the Buckanerro in O.J.

Although Terlingua House has a two-night minimum, if you travel to Big Bend, no matter where you stay I hope you stay three nights to have at least two full days to take in the scenery and the culture.
