Tiny Terlingua is just minutes from the historic Terlingua Ghosttown, conveniently situated between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park. This solar powered house is tucked away privately on the corner of five acres with plenty of room for enjoying a campfire, viewing the night sky and watching an amazing sunrise. Come experience tiny house living powered by the sun.
“Tiny Terlingua is awesome!! The property is well thought out with shaded areas throughout the day. The landscaping makes you feel you have found an oasis in the unforgiving desert. The house cools down very fast, even during the hottest part of the day. The dirt road that you use to access the property is rough, however any vehicle can be used without any worry. Carmen has done a fantastic job of providing all the amenities in both main house and the bath house. Terlingua is about 15 minutes from Big Bend and the town offers everything you need for your trip. Carmen left a book with detailed instructions on how to make the most of the off grid/solar powered house. Follow those guidelines and you will have a wonderful, relaxing experience.”
Update: I am blocking out the day before guests arrive and the day after departure. This gives the Caravans a good rest period of 24-48 hours between guests Along with a deep clean before you arrive I take my temperature, wear a mask at all times when inside cleaning. I'm staying home with very limited contact with the world. I take every precaution to make sure the Caravans are safe for you. A fully equipped kitchen offers everything you need to cook all your meals. You never have to leave!
“Fabulous location with great views of other camps that make you feel like you are living in another time. The caravans are situated just outside the ghost town but close enough to walk to restaurants and the sights. Everything on the property was exactly as described, and we were very comfortable during our stay. Kym is extremely responsive and helpful. On the day we arrived, the national park suddenly announced it would be shutting down until further notice. She let us know immediately that if there was something we absolutely wanted to see, to get out there that evening before the lockdown went into effect....then provided us with plenty of ideas to keep us entertained for the next few days. Big thanks for that heads up. Santa Elena Canyon was a stunner! If you want a quiet weekend away where you can truly disconnect, this is the place. Make a campfire, ignore the wifi access, and just breathe in the fresh desert air while taking in the mountainous surroundings. If your stay happens to fall during a full moon, don't miss the opportunity to watch it rise up into the sky from "behind" the mountains in the distance. Truly incredible. I would definitely stay here again!”
Step back to a simpler time in this comfortably updated authentic ruin in the heart of the ghost town. Built by miners a hundred years ago, its spacious porch affords the best view of the Chisos Mountains and Big Bend National Park.
“Wow, is literally all I can say. Such a quaint little spot with breathtaking views. Far enough away from neighbors that you feel pretty remote, but in town so it’s easy to get to the things around it! It was a little warm for the outdoor bed while we were there, but hello— it was July. We still spent SO much time outside, enjoying the back patio and the seating space in the outdoor bedroom. The desert breeze was perfect. It’s an old house, so it gets a little warm when you cook— but not uncomfortably so! There’s plenty of fans to use if you need on top of the super quiet AC. We had the best week relaxing and enjoying the beauty that this corner of Texas has to offer. We look forward to coming back in another season to see what more there is to experience in that time ☺️”
