I must admit I did not do a very good job of vetting this place in advance. It is literally out in the middle of nowhere and at the end of a very dusting 3 mile non-paved road. Accommodation itself was okay, but no TV. I guess that's what I deserved for trying to avoid paying the high cost of lodging within the Big Bend NP. The guy that runs the place was very nice and understanding when I said we would have to cancel the 2nd nights stay.

I had a good stay here, the cabins are clean and comfortable. Average day was Get up and have breakfast Head out to Big Bend Park and do a couple of hours of hiking Come back and relax in the pool. Have supper Go back to cabin sit outside sipping wine and watching the sun fall. The restaurant is good, and does a good job. Limited selection but enough of a range that unless you have a very strict diet you will be ok. Cabins have a firepit outside so if remember bring some wood, lighter and paper to start the fire. Then bring the ingredients for smores and a bottle of wine. Noise around the place is was not bad, could not hear the crickets when in the cabin. Did overhear some people at breakfast mentioning the coyote howling. The only reason I would have with not staying

I'll be honest I didn't stay there, not regretting it but only because my stay was awesome. I visited the Ranch to use the Christmas Mountain trail. The team at Terlingua Ranch was so friendly. They helped me with such pleasure and then when I finished and was leaving gave me great advice on other places to travel. Would seriously consider staying here in the future with how accommodating they were. Thank you Terlingua team!!

The facilities were clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. It was as advertised, somewhat remote but comfortable once you are on property. A real get away after a lock down year. It was what we were hoping for.

Nothing fancy here but comfortable and clean. The rooms are in 4 unit cabins. A bed and bathroom and air conditioning! No TV which was fine. Several nice pieces of artwork on the walls. Our friend booked us into the supposedly haunted room 47... no ghosts appeared but, I did have a nice ghost dream. The restaurant is nothing fancy but the food and service was good. The pool was refreshing in the heat of the day. There are only a few chairs and loungers but there was a shaded area by the pool.

The ranch is very relaxing. The rooms are small and offer little amenities. However, it’s directly between big Bend and Alpine. Long story short everything there is to do or eat is 90+ minutes away. Pros: - It’s a perfect spot to stargaze. - There is a pool to cool down on a hot day. - Cafe on the property and the food is pretty good Cons: - It’s a long drive to nearly everything. - Gas prices and other stuff from the markets are marked up because there aren’t other choices. - thin walls with neighbors

To put it mildly, this series of cabins (no lodge) is way out there. It is an hour and a half drive to the basin at Big Bend NP. Even "town" is at least 20 miles away The office is only open 9-5 so you pick up a key if you check in late. There are few amenities (we did not try the pool as it was April and cool). The rooms are clean and comfortable with double beds. Outlets are limited and WiFi spotty. Sitting on the porch and taking in the view is restful, but not all that entertaining. They feed the birds in front of the office and there is a cafe we recommend attached to the "ranch".

We booked a week’s stay in January for April. When we realized we were not able to travel, I called to cancel. I called dozens of times. No one ever answered the phone nor did they return my call. I left a detailed voice mail on March 11 with name, date and request to cancel. No response. I sent a detailed cancellation email on March 13, with no response. On April 6th they charged me over $1,000 for the full stay. I requested a refund, no response. I understood the first night was non refundable, but there was no other cancellation provision. Beware before booking.

OK so first off, understand that this is not a big chain hotel with 24 hour service and TV and such. This lodge is WAY off the beaten track. The last few miles are on gravel road. Front desk hours only 9-5, but they left a key out for us Cabins are reasonable size. 2 double beds and a decent bathroom. The room was clean There was no TV, microwave, or phone, but our room did have a functioning fridge. They advertised Wifi, but it didn’t work at all the first night, but the second night we had mediocre signal. there is Zero cell service in the area. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the air conditioner worked well There weren’t a lot of outlets, but we were able to charge phones and cameras The views from the porch were quite nice- mountains were nice

Great place right off the main road. Not far from big bend national park. Quick drive, easy to find. I love the night sky, you can see every star, even the Milky Way. If stargazing is what you’re after, this place is great! The pool is amazing and the restaurant on the grounds is awesome. The employees are super nice and the food was good. We had an amazing time here and would return. Only complaint is how you can hear everything from the room next door. The walls are thin, we could hear phones going off, people walking, people talking, basically everything. Super grateful we had an older couple as neighbors and had no issues, but would not be happy if it was loud neighbors.
