'Artsy' Studio dtown Alpine by Marfa 3 beds/1 bath

Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Alpine, Texas
The dog and child friendly Alpine Studio is located downtown in Alpine on historic Murphy Street (and approx. 20 minutes from Marfa:), within easy walking distance of everything in Alpine, 1/2 block south of the Amtrak station (there is some train noise so I supply individually wrapped earplugs for sensitive sleepers:).
Everything is 'turn key' and 'low key.' The entire house is yours. Key is in the lock box by the mailbox - please remember to put it back :)There is an additional lockbox by the back door if there is a key 'mixup.' There is a flashlight in the mailbox in case you get in after dark.
There is a king size organic Talalay latex and cotton mattress in the main room and a full size bed in the 2nd bedroom...the 3rd bed is an antique Portuguese twin bed.

My dog and I stayed here for two nights recently. The studio is rustic, but charming. Hard to explain. I stood there with a "wow this is different, completely different than my life, I can do this, this is fun". You won't be serving dinner...More
