Based on the referral of another lodge owner we decided to stay one night here passing through Big Bend National park. The newer cabins are very nice and spacious. Great rockers on the front porch to relax. A courtyard with grills, tables and chairs to cook out. The rooms have large bathrooms and a nice kitchen area with coffee pot, toaster,microwave,frig and all utensils, cups, plates, bowls..etc.
If you decide not to cook there is a restaurant next door you can walk to and several up the road in Terlingua.
A storm came through and the back up generator did not start for a few hours overnight...so our room got warm. But it came back on and all was good again. Due to the storm they needed to put gravel in a few places...so early morning tractor sounds are not fun when you are trying to enjoy your coffer outside. The owners did come by and offer a apology for the noise. Keep in mind that you will pay a $10 additional fee for any children over 12. Our son is 14. I am not a fan of such fees. 14 is not a adult.
I did not like the 10 am check out time. I felt rushed. Perhaps they will consider extending the time to 11. That one hour makes a big difference.
But..having said that...the views are gorgeous and the owners have put in a lot of work and effort to have a nice, well maintained place. Staff is warm and friendly. Thank you Randy for cabin 10. It did have the best views.
They also have outdoor adventure tours down the river and on land to explore the area. We will be back to spend more time and take in those gorgeous views of the mountains. Very nice place.
It is located a few miles outside Big Bend National park west entrance.
