***READ CAREFULLY, ANY QUESTIONS ASKED THAT ARE LISTED HERE WILL NOT BE ANSWERED*** I work as a guide in the Parks so my access to phone service and email are limited, you must contact me a week in advance for key/access info. Small rustic 1br cabin 7 miles from the Mexican border, isolated and safe, within walking distance to the Chinati Hot Springs resort, but with the privacy of your own house. Situated on 40 acres, with it's own landscaped hiking/mountain biking trail and 100 mile views into the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico and the Chinati mountains of Texas, an HOUR-PLUS drive south of Marfa near Donald Judds' ranches,a great place to get away from the busy world. NO PHYSICAL ADDRESS! For directions go to Map and click 'Read More' NO CELL PHONE SERVICE, no internet access, and none of the other things that comp... Read more
