Unique miner's casita in the GhostTown. Basic and organic: built by loving hands a hundred years ago, but comfortably updated. Enjoy the kitchen or stroll the neighborhood for dinner out. Porch has award-winning views. Mountains! Stars!

The space
The house was dubbed "Boystown" by Oregon river guides living here in the 80's, and the name just stuck. This stacked limestone cabin can comfortably fit one or two people. It has a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom. Please note that the bathroom is separate from the house, but only a few steps out the back door. The patio, the porch and the yard all offer stunning views of the mountains and badlands of Big Bend National Park. Not to mention the night sky with stars from horizon to horizon. Float the river, enjoy world class biking or hiking only minutes away at Big Bend National Park or Big Bend Ranch State Park.

I've lived in Terlingua for nearly thirty years. I first came to Big Bend to go on a rafting trip, and I fell in love with the landscape. When I finally moved here, I bought three dilapidated mining ruins, and I've worked on restoring them over the years. I have managed a bookstore in the Ghost Town for the past 13 years, but when I got here I worked as a river guide. I've also worked as a field biologist all over the western United States. I've released peregrine falcons, California condors and aplomado falcons into the wild, and have studied other endangered species as well. My work took me to Yosemite National Park, the Channel Islands, Montana's Centennial Valley, Rocky Mountain National Park, Big Bend National Park, and the Grand Canyon. I love to hike and bird and boat and travel with my dog. I'm happy to share my knowledge of this beautiful desert with you.

During your stay
I live nearby and would be happy to share my knowledge of Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park as well as the Terlingua area itself.
