Located in the heart of downtown Alpine, Texas, this separate, diminutive cottage (1 room and bath) was a teeny office (168sf) back in the day! The bed is only a 3/4 bed( wider than a twin, but lass wide than a double)! This space is tiny and, yes, was photographed with wide angle lens to get the whole room in! It situated downtown, behind the locally owned salon and barber shop, Americana. Enjoy the Backyard, adjacent to the Dragonfly Cottage!

The space
Hidden right in the middle of downtown, these guest cottages were formerly the secret hideaways of various owners, luminaries, celebrities, and occasional scalawags.

This guest cottage is the smallest of our available units and is best for those looking for a great budget friendly alternative! The cottage sleeps two very friendly folks, or a single. This unit was actually the old doc's private, stand alone office behind his home and next to his hospital(the home is now Americana Salon, and the hospital is a fourplex apartment with other 4 more Airbnb rentals)...best trip to the doctor's office you will ever have, possibly! Note that the cottage IS tiny, and has a 3/4 size bed! The bath has a generous size shower! And yes, we used a wide angle lens to shoot the room picture!

You have access to everything in the unit as well as the large courtyard outside adjacent to the Lofts accommodations...look for the orange door to the east as you head down the alley!

Other things to note
The train rolls through town a few times a day. It can be a bit noisy, but ear plugs are provided with each stay for those who are light sleepers!
