When wie arrived at Terlingua (Ghosttown) and we saw the "Upstairs at the Mansion" we were really surprised. We couldn't believe that there are rooms. But how much was then the surprise when we got an overview about the Mansion. Two clean and comfortable rooms, a kitchen which we could use for our purposes. A huge porch to relaxing - the Mansion is a great place to stay!
It was everything available for us what we needed for our stay. Even a WIFI connection has the Mansion!! Kaci gave us necessary hints for our tour to the Big Bend Nationalpark, to Hotsprings, etc. and made our stay to an adventure.
Below the Mansion - 3 min to walk - is the "Starlight Theatre" the best place for dinner (Steaks or handmade burger,...) and sometimes they have live music.
But the best way to find out everything for yourself is to spent some days there.
I will come back to the Mansion but than with hat, boots, etc.
