We've been going to the Gage for several years to enjoy Christmas. It's hard not to like: the town of Marathon has only 500 people and is in the middle of nowhere, bordering Big Bend National Park. The Gage has a fun bar and an excellent restaurant. Accommodations are very nice but not consistent. I'd recommend one of the rooms next to the patios of the hotel. We've tried the various houses, which are nice but always seem to be missing something. Most recently, we stayed at a new house that's part of the hotel and has 5 separate rooms. BE CAREFUL: the bathrooms for some of the rooms in that house were separate from the actual rooms, requiring guests to walk through the hallway past other guests to their bathroom--not good enough for the price that's charged. The staff are also a bit unwelcoming and treat guests like they're lucky to get a room. Still, the setting is hard to beat; we'll be back.
