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.

Always a great visit, I’m a frequent guest at The Ranch. Glad to have the wood stove as it was 21 degrees overnight. Very warm and cozy with the wood fire.

The bungalow is very clean, cozy and stylish. The kitchen is stocked with all the tools you need to whip up a meal. The bed is comfortable and despite the colder temps, very easy to warm up and stay comfortable. The wrap around porch offers great west Texas sunrise and sunset…

We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Ranch! It was a fairly short walk into town, which was nice, but also far enough out to give us our own space. Would love to stay here again next time we are in Marathon.

the most the most relaxing restful BMV we've ever stayed in. On the south end of marathon overlooking field and mountains oh, and at night it's almost as if you could touch the Stars! This quaint little tiny house is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy
