Welcome to Milky Way Run, a tiny studio cabin located in the heart of the Chihuahuan desert. We are located 25 minutes from Big Bend National Park west entrance, and 25 minutes to Terlingua Ghost town.

Pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, and sit outside in your own private space enjoying unparalleled views of the Milky Way.

The space
We have a scenic 5 acre lot nestled in the foothills of the Christmas Mountains, and we are a 25 minute stress free (and gorgeous) drive to the west entrance of Big Bend National Park (it is a BIG park and you will have to drive more once you have entered - do your homework and plan accordingly). You are the only one on the 5 acres.

Drive Times:
* Study Butte (gas): 18 minutes (on the way to BBNP)
* Terlingua Ghosttown: 25 minutes
* Cottonwood Grocer: 20 minutes (on the way to BBNP)
* Big Bend National Park: 25 minutes to the west entrance
* Easily accessible with a standard 2wd vehicle


About Us:

Lots of amenities for outdoor lovers. We are located .7 miles on a dirt road off of the main Terlingua Ranch road. We do not allow pets at this time.

We DO have:
✔ WiFi
✔ Limited electricity
✔ Fans
✔ Shaded porch
✔ Outdoor propane cooktop
✔ Compost toilet
✔ Outdoor Shower with Solar Bag

✘ Bed linens, personal linens, pillows

Cleaning:
This is a self clean rental! Please do your part to keep this space super nice/clean and super affordable. We only charge a $10 fee to cover a property inspector (not cleaner). In return, you will need to clean up after yourself. We provide instructions in the cabin. This is about 20 minutes worth of work and saves you a lot of money. Help us make this world a better place, and leave *everywhere* better than you found it.

★ NOTE: Guests who do not self clean will be billed a $75 cleaning fee ★

Bathroom:
We provide a composting outhouse for your use. You will be responsible for disposing of your waste, but we provide a very sanitary, simple, and odor free eco-friendly bathroom. If this is not for you, we understand - there are plenty of other options available in the area. Please find something that suits your needs.

★ NOTE: Guests who do not dispose of their waste properly will be billed a $75 waste removal fee ★

Water:
You will need to bring your water with you. We do not provide water.

More Details:
✧ You will need to bring your own towels/bedding/pillows/sleeping bags/blankets/toilet paper/paper towels/dishsoap/dishes/water/charcoal/etc... Think of this as glamping with a hard sided tent. We provide a wonderful and comfortable space for your camping experience. You provide the rest.

✧ Bring a twin sheet set if using the bed as a twin, and bring a king set if using the bed as a king (it pulls out to a king size). Also, don't forget your sleeping bag! While we have enough heat to keep the chill out of the air, you will still need warm bedding for cold nights.

✧ We provide a large covered Pilot Rock charcoal grill for cooking.

✧ Outside the cabin is a small cooking area. We provide a 2 burner cooktop, fully hooked up to our propane tank (propane is provided for you).

✧ The covered porch offers either white lights, or red lights for better viewing of the Milky Way.

✧ This cabin is TINY (9x11)! Comfortable for max of 2 people.

✧ A propane wall heater is provided to keep the cabin comfortable on cold nights.





**SUMMER INFO**
- Summer in the desert is HOT.
- Our hottest months are generally May through August.
- The cabin does not have AC, and it will be hot in the summer.

Tips for summer bookings:
✱ Check the weather close to your stay. If it looks too hot, you may cancel your reservation for a full refund (view the cancellation policy on AirBnB)
✱ Check out the Terlingua Ranch Lodge pool - $8/person/day. This will cool you off. We have provided a picture of the pool in our listing for reference. It’s about a 15 minute drive from the cabin, You can also get food there at the Café, ice, and take showers. Call the Terlingua Ranch Lodge for hours and information
✱ Summertime is monsoon season in Big Bend. The cabin has all weather roads so access will not be a problem. Rain is an amazing thing to witness in the desert; if you’re lucky, you may get to watch a storm roll in with a beverage in hand, sitting under the covered porch. The rain will cool the temps drastically in the afternoons.
