Sunset Ranch is an acre lot at the far southeast corner of Marathon, TX that backs up to the Combs ranch, facing the south, which allows for unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets from the 700 sf covered porch. The studio is well laid out for up to 4 guests. There is a queen size bed and two full size cots, which can be stacked as bunk beds.

Marathon is 40 minutes from the park entrance of Big Bend National Park, and it is a natural launch point to explore the true nature of West Texas.

The space
Your first experience of the studio is the large 700 sf covered porch with dimmable wall lighting and ceiling speakers for ambient music. The views from the porch are excellent for both sunrises and sunsets. Moving into the studio, the complete space is new construction with a mixture of contemporary and western. The kitchen has full amenities, including large farm sink, wood counter top, ample of cabinet space with dish and cookware, and new stainless steel appliances. There is a bluetooth receiver in the wall cabinet that controls the four interior speakers and four porch speakers independently (zones A/B), with a linked tablet playing Pandora radio next to the kitchen sink. The bathroom has a large sink and beautiful walk in tile shower. The bedroom has a custom mixed wood back wall with wall lighting and a very large sliding door closet, which would work well for longer stay guests. The living room windows are placed for a 180 degree panoramic view of the ranch land bordering the property to the south. On the porch, there is a bar with wet sink and gas grill. Around the back on the north wall is the utility closet with washer/dryer. (Keep the utility door open with drying clothes for proper ventilation.) Optional two full size cots, stackable as bunk beds, for additional guests and kids.

Guest access
You have access to the complete property which includes an acre of cleared land with local plants (and wildlife.) There is a large pipe fence on two street/alley sides and small ranch fence land adjacent to the Combs ranch.

Other things to note
There is also a full RV hookup on the property which you can add to your rental, and you can add additional guests for tent camping on the acre lot. Ask for a special quote for either. The 30/50 amp RV connection can be used for Tesla charging as well.

When you are at sunset ranch, you are on the edge of a very small town facing a ranch, i.e. you will feel quite secluded. It is an easy walk to "town," but I do not recommend walking at night with increased wildlife activity. I keep a set of binoculars by the door for star gazing (level 1 night sky, best you can get) and for bird watching in the morning.
