Super cool, comfy Loft (at the Lumberyard) in Marfa, at the center of everything. Shares complex with Do Your Thing coffee, across street from The Get Go Grocery, near bars, restaurants, convenience store. Artistic touches, nice linens, deluxe queen bed, balcony view. Special.

The space
From Texas Highways Magazine:

"[In Marfa] signage is more often a reflection of the creativity of the business than a guide for the lost or curious. One such place is The Lumberyard, a collection of studios for painters, artisans, woodworkers, and fashion designer Ashley Rowe ... The happening compound is also home to the Do Your Thing coffeehouse ... "

The Loft at the Lumberyard is a unique and uniquely Marfan place to stay right smack in the middle of everything in town.

Though the balcony faces the courtyard, the Loft door is hidden down a private alley by another gate (you'll have this key, too) to the main alley which is a half a block from the drag and directly across the street from our gourmet natural food store and wine shop, The Get Go Grocery, as well as Ballroom Marfa, one block from The Pizza Foundation, The Lost Horse Saloon and Marfa National Bank, and within two blocks of Cochineal Restaurant, City Hall, Marfa Hardware Store, Stripes Convenience Store, and much more -- it really is the ideal location in town (make sure to check addresses of listings that say "walking distance").

The space was one half of the lumber storage building at the old Corder Lumberyard and Hardware store that existed for decades in Marfa, The stylings inside, like the whole Lumberyard, are minimalist-industrial. The spine (the ceiling joists, loft structure) was built around instead of removed. You can see where the racks were pulled apart and the wood re-purposed (for the balcony and the Do Your Thing kitchen counter, for example). Many of the fixtures and touches are built with black pipe from the Corder Lumber and Hardware store. The large metal casements windows are from the site. The tables where built on site. The red Mexican cement tiles in the bathroom and shower were on site. And all of the art was created in Marfa, most on site. The mattress is a brand new all-natural memory foam and the linens are excellent. The couch is a fold down if you have an extra guest. There's a speaker system to plug your iPod or computer into and a record player with a few records. The WIFl is robust*. You have your own private entrance in the alley and you can unload directly in front of the unit.

Currently there are three painters, a fashion designer, an architect, an interior designer, a writer and a filmmaker using workspaces in the Lumberyard compound. Your balcony is over the courtyard where they come to work and from it you can see Cathedral Mountain to the SE and far across the McGuire Ranch South towards Mexico.

Again Do You Thing coffee is operates out of The Lumberyard and is just a few steps away. Symphonic, ecstatic, coffee.

The giant courtyard and shade structure can fit hundreds for events, making The Lumberyard an all-inclusive place to meet, eat, throw a party and sleep right in the middle of town.

During your stay

The Lumberyard complex is right in the middle of town but perfectly quiet for guests. It's a long-time popular, welcome and trusted place to stay.

There's another rental on site called "Adobe Room at the Lumberyard." If you rent both you'll pretty much have the run of the place:

My wife also has a great little airbnb rental up the street called "Adobe Chi:" Thanks!
