5 minutes from anywhere in Presidio, La Casita sits on 5 acres bound by the City on the North and the defunct railroad tracks on the south. Two other residences on property, this is a very private little estate. A cute little piece of history!
“Todd was an incredible host. The casita itself is beautiful with all the amenities we needed. We had just come down from Big Bend around 9pm and Todd was available to help us check in even thought we didn’t notify him until 10 minutes before we got there due to lack of service. Todd’s recommendations led us to visit Ojinaga, which wasn’t part of our plan at all. The area itself is quant and beautiful. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Big Bend (both State, 30 min, and National, 2 hours) and Ojinaga.”
Old historic adobe church 100+ years old, 5 individual rental units plus great room, communal kitchen, dining and living areas. Ten minutes from the entry to Big Bend Ranch State Park and 1 hr. from entry to Big Bend National Park, located in the historic ghost town of Redford, Texas.
“Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 12 & 10) rented Unit 1 and 2 downstairs which was perfect for us. There was another guest upstairs and we could interact with them in the communal space if we wanted, but we were able to have our private space as those units are separate with their own bathroom and a small kitchen. It was such a unique experience to stay in a church built in 1914 and it has so much character. Definetely rustic with creaky floors but that is what we were looking for! Charie was a great host and our kids feel in love with his dog, Sissy, who likes to come over and greet you! He gave us great tips on things to do and we used his company Angel Expeditions to canoe the Rio Grande... which was the highlight of our trip!!!! There is Wi-Fi at the church but we rarely used it as we really were there to disconnect, and you are able to do that at Charlie's place. We loved spending our evenings outside by the fire pit or the dock. It's about 45-50 minutes to Lajitas, but it's a beautiful drive through the State Park. I don't think we would have had the same wonderful experience staying anywhere else. Once seeing "town" we were happy we were off the beaten trail, even though we had to make the drive daily to get either to the National Park or to enjoy the restaurants in town. It would so fun to stay again with a big group of friends and rent the whole church! Thank you Charlie for helping us create one of the best family trips we've ever had!!! The Whistler's!!!”
One of three isolated campsites on a private ranch. Sleep under the light of a billion stars and awaken to a perfect sunrise over Agua Adentro Mountain, minutes from Big Bend Ranch State Park. Improvements include a 32” fire ring with cooking grate, shade structure and plenty of space to roam. You are in the midst of a property that spans from the Rio Grande across Alamito Creek and then across Casa Piedra. The roads are improved and accessible by sedan, if driven carefully.
“We stayed in our camper trailer at Rio Bravo ranch for two nights and loved it! The ranch itself is beautiful, and full of surprises. We had our trailer parked at a flat spot just up from the RB1 campsite, which sits atop some steep cliffs overlooking an arroyo. While we didn’t use the tent pad, we definitely enjoyed cooking dinner over the fire pit and hanging out at the picnic table under the shade structure. Charlie and Lauren were full of helpful advice, from detailed driving instructions to tips on where to visit. They pointed us towards a STUNNING spot on their ranch to watch the sunset while overlooking the Rio grande and Mexico., which was an early highlight of our week long trip to the area. The ranch is also located very close to Big Bend Ranch State Park, which we spent one day exploring. Our visit to Rio Bravo Ranch was a great way to start off our week in the Big Bend region, and we can’t wait to return! Thanks y’all!”
