A note from La Posada Milagro Guesthouse
Updated 05/20/20


#4 of 15 Specialty lodging in Terlingua
La Posada Milagro translated means The Miracle Inn and was established by Mimi Webb Miller in 2005 in Terlingua, Texas - just outside Big Bend National Park. The stone structures of the hotel follow the architectural footprints left when Terlingua was a booming mining town in the 1890s. Regional lumber, Ocotillo stalks, and stacked rock from its hillside were all used when rebuilding the property over the years. Today, the hotel offers visitors six unique guestrooms to choose from and stunning views of the Chisos Mountain Range and Big Bend National Park. All rooms are cozy with modern comforts and a touch of rustic Mexico. La Posada Milagro was named as "One of the Best Places to Spend the Night" by Conde Nast Traveler and in 2012 as "One of the 15 Best New Hotels in Texas" by Texas Monthly.

We stayed at La Posada for three nights and it was amazing. The guest house are set into a hillside in the Terlingua Ghosttown. The views of the desert and the mountains in the distance are incredible. The room (we were in Mimi's Guesthouse) was clean, warm (it was freezing outside every night) and well decorated. My only minor complaint is that the water didn't get very hot, but since this is the desert and I suspect normally this is not a concern, it didn't take away from the experience at all. There were little outside seating areas sprinkled through the property, with two right outside our room. I loved the bird feeders for bird watching and the star gazing was out of this world. Last great thing was the location. You're able to walk to the coffee shop and the Starlight Theater down the hill, which was a bonus after long days driving in Big Bend. Can't wait to go back one day!

Coffee shop has amazing food. Even in hot temperatures you can stay cool while you wait for your food with their lovely shaded area. I ordered the chicken quesadilla and it did not disappoint. They also are very COVID cautious so you’ll feel safe.

This is an unusual Coronavirus related review. My husband and I were planning to travel from Ireland to Texas in late March 2020 to visit our son who was on a 1 year contract there. We organised a visit to the big bend which we were really looking forward to. Unfortunately we weren’t able to travel due to the restrictions in travel from Ireland imposed in mid March. The Posada Milagro were super understanding and empathetic to us as we needed to change our reservations. I look forward to staying there when we visit when the world is back to normal.

Your review means a lot to us. As you can imagine, the global travel restrictions have hit us hard, but in the end we're still in the hospitality business, aren't we? We too look forward to when the world is back to normal and seeing you then.

My husband and I stayed at La Posada Milagro guesthouse in the Chisos suite (4 night stay). We just returned from the Terlingua/Big Bend trip last night (it was a January trip) and my husband and I keep remarking on how wonderful, quirky and just delightful La Posada was. The staff was top knotch and the guesthouse and the grounds were kept pristine clean. We had amazing views of the big skies in all directions. A short stroll down a small hill took us to the delicious coffee house/espresso restaurant. We enjoyed several breakfasts there--delicious burritos and eggs benedict and wonderful lattes. Part of the attraction there was to just sit on the porch, relaxing over breakfast, and talk to the interesting locals and tourists. So relaxing!!! The hotel was nicely situated for day trips into Big Bend National Park (and also one into the state park). Both my husband and I recommend Mimi's La Posada Milagro highly. (The owner, Mimi, is an interesting and accomplished woman). We travel a lot and this place beacons us to return.

We stayed in Mimi's room, which is off by itself with another room next door which was a bunkroom. Outside the room is a refrigerator, a lovely patio and around the corner a private terrace for the most wonderful stargazing you can imagine. Every morning we would open the blinds to see the most incredible sunrises. The main compound has a great terrace with a grill, fridge, and outdoor kitchen. Would be really good for groups. We would walk down the hill for coffee and breakfast every morning. And for anyone who needs GF options, they have gf bread/bagels. Hubby got a GFegg sandwich every morning. You can also walk down to Starlight Theatre (bring a flashlight) for dinner. Great homebase for the Big Bend. My only wish was that there was a coffee pot in the room.
