We absolutely can't say enough good things about being there! Yes, it's a bit farther from the Big Bend National Park and that's the appeal. Built to look like a frontier town, it's a photographer's delight, miles of desert to roam from your front door, gorgeous views, comfortably sized rooms, front porches to enjoy and a feeling that the desert...

This unique ranch has 6-7 cabins built into an 1850s like old town atmosphere. The setting is at the base of a mountain and is absolutely georgeous. The water is trucked in and stored, the electricity is solar powered, and heat is propane fireplaces, no TVs. The hosts are very friendly and they serve a delicious breakfast daily. The area...

We stayed for 3 nights in September. Pros: Very, very clean and comfortable lodging; very friendly hostess; easy to access; breakfast each morning; hosts built a lovely outdoor fire one night; INCREDIBLE view. Cons: Morning coffee was instant only; walls were thin and we could hear our neighbors' every word, music playing, etc.

Well, thank you for the kind review. Let me mention that your coffee was not instant. I'm guessing you said that because there were some grounds in the bottom of your cup. In fact, given that we are off the grid (and try to save electricity) we ALWAYS brew our coffee the old fashioned way (over the propane stove in... More

Lovely place run by wonderful, super friendly people, Jennifer took really good care of us. We have never seen such star lighted sky's and such amazing sunrise before, peaceful and unique on all levels. Our stay at Ten Bits Ranch sure made our visit to Big Bend and outstanding experience.

This is an absolutely fantastic piece of property in an excellent and convenient location to Big Bend National Park. My son and I came here in February of 2015 and arrived late in the evening. The location is remote and we closely followed the directions provided by the owner - don't bother with GPS here. We made it through the... More

Ten Bits Ranch is certainly "off the beaten path", being 2 miles off the paved highway via a gravel/dirt road, but that only adds to its attractiveness. Rooms a well appointed and being in "The Old Schoolhouse" room we had a west facing sitting porch to admire the desert mountain sunsets. Breakfast was delicious. TBR is very remote and not... More

We were totally surprised by this place. It was very cool and we loved the rugged terrain, with huge rock formations all around. This grouping of cabins was well away from the touristy areas, and incredibly quiet all day (off the grid, so, no tvs, etc), It was absolutely beautiful under the full moon. We have never stayed anywhere that... More

This is simply the best location in the area - it's breathtaking and a real experience. The cabins are built in a superb funky yet authentic style. And the owners Jennifer and Steve offer just the right balance of friendly help and laissez faire. This is "off the grid "at its best. And if you want a camp fire just... More

I don't think you'll ever stay anywhere like Ten Bits. The pictures on their website don't do the breathtaking scenery justice - it's truly superb and worth being a bit of a drive down a well-maintained dirt road. The rooms are in themed cabins that are perfectly decorated to the ranch theme. Ours, the Guns 'shop', was flawlessly clean and... More

Ten Bits Ranch is very well located for several days of exploration in Big Bend National Park. Our room was spotless and decor was ranch chic cute. Beds were comfortable. We slept like logs - so quiet! Don't miss the nighttime stars, we were able to see the Milky Way. Jen had a delicious hot breakfast ready for us promptly... More
