Location

Terlingua, Texas, United States

The only amenities that the dome is in walking distance to are the natural features of the Chihuahuan desert, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and one of the best locations in the world to see the unobstructed night sky.

A large grocery store called "The Cottonwood" with everything from organics to vices is in Study Butte and is about 20 minutes away by car. They are open until 9 PM.

The entrance to the National Park is about 25 minutes away, and the Chisos Mountains in the National Park takes about an hour. There are some great trails up there. If you like hot springs, there is a great one near Rio Grande Village in the National Park. It is a good way to rest the muscles after a good day hike. Give yourself an hour and a half to get back to the dome from the hot springs.

Terlingua Ghost Town has a great restaurant called the Starlight Theatre. There is music there almost every night. The closest restaurant to the dome is called Tivos. It has great authentic Mexican food and I think is only open Thursday through Saturday nights. Service can take awhile because they make everything from scratch.

You are welcome to try an outdoor solar shower at the dome, but your best bet are the showers up at the Terlingua Ranch Lodge (13 miles up the road from the dome), or the $2 coin showers in Study Butte at the Big Bend Motor Inn. The $2 showers are on your way to and from the National Park and there are multiple showers. The Terlingua Ranch Lodge has a great swimming pool that costs $5 per car, which includes a bath house with showers as well. Bring your own towel.

I am a touring musician who is back and forth between two self built homes in the tiny towns of Terlingua, Texas (Big Bend National Park) and Thomas, West Virginia (Monongahela National Forest). It is a great pleasure to share these spaces and places with the Airbnb community when I'm not living there myself. As my guest, you are also helping to fund these projects, as well as to serve as an exchange when I travel and tour to other unique spaces and experiences. Thanks for being my guest. - Trevor

During your stay
I will not be on site. Your reservation will be set up as a self check-in check-out deal with a coded keyless entry into the dome. Your bed will be ready for you with clean linens before your arrival, but won't be refreshed during your stay. Though I will be offsite, I will be available by phone, email, text, and though the Airbnb messaging center. I have a couple point people in the area who can help in case of any urgent need.
