Description

The space

Nothing else like it in marfa...located on HWY 90 at the corner of Dean and San Antonio, Corte del Norte was home to the 'mother of West Texas Tex-Mex' according to Robb Walsh in his book, The Tex-Mex Cookbook. From 1887 until 1987, the Old Borunda Cafe served both locals and movie stars alike, including James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor during the filming of Giant. Now home to the corner stores including Cobra Rock Boot Company, Smilebooth and Cast & Crew. Corte del Norte is a great location.

Corte del Norte has been designed by Jamey Garza and Constance Holt Garza of Garza Furniture.

The love house has two bedrooms one bath along with media room, lounge and a kitchen. Sleeps 5 (daybed, 2 queen beds).

The property also offers a dining shed, pergola, fire pit, and stock tank pool. Event fees apply for parties of 10 or more.

This is a great place for groups/weddings/events. Inquire for event pricing.

Three night minimum for holidays and special event weekends.

Please take a look at our Corte del Norte site for more details.

Did you know Marfa has highs in the 80s and lows in the 50's in August? Come see us in the the only cool place to be in Texas!

The neighborhood

Below is a random list of fun facts.

Lunch:
Food Shark – a food truck (excellent food for lunch).
Other food trucks are available
Pizza Foundation is fantastic but only open on weekends.

Dinner:
Make reservations now at both Cochineal, Stellina and LaVenture in the Hotel Saint George or Jetts Grill in the Paisano hotel.

Tours:
Book the short (2 hour) guided Chinati tour – worth it to understand marfa. The Judd “block” tour is fun (judd’s home) every afternoon. Book in advance: Chinati through Chinati Foundation and the Block through the Judd Foundation. They both have a variety of tours. These are just my personal favorites.

Shopping:
Freda (tiny and funky)
Mirth (almost everything from Japan - exquisite...some local artists work too)
Garza Marfa - (furniture and textiles)
Cast & Crew - mid century modern furniture
Marfa brand soap
Cobra Rock Boot company – they are in Levi’s boutiques
El Cosmico and Thunderbird have tiny, cool gift shops

Galleries:
Just walk around. Don’t miss the $40Million worth of Andy Warhols (down the street from Mayias). High quality minimal art go to 2D gallery and Inde Villis. Wrong is a great gallery as well. Artist will often open their studios if you want to buy.

Random:
Many movies have been filmed in Marfa: Giant, There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, Dancer Texas, etc. However, one is a must if you want to take the #1 National Geographic drive. It¹s Kevin Costner¹s first movie. Fandango. It¹s a coming of age movie about a group of friends that graduate from UT and the next morning they leave to go dig up the bottle of DOM they buried after High School graduation out in West Texas. It's an hour and half drive there. I highly discourage you from going across the border. The drive through Pinto Canyon (FM 2810) is amazing. If you go far enough (2 hours) you'll make it to the Hot Springs - fun!

We have a miniature whole foods called The Get Go. It¹s essentially across the street from Corte del Norte. And a liquor store (used to be called El Cheapo and then they sold it and renamed it). I refuse to call it anything but El Cheapo. It's now called Celebration. The best coffee is across from The Get Go in The Lumberyard it¹s called Do Your Thing Coffee. And they have toast in the a.m. too.

Other things to note

We try to keep you stocked with Big Bend Coffee Roasters coffee. Even though we try to keep our pantries and fridges empty we know it's hard to buy for just a weekend so help yourself to any food or beverages in the house. The outdoor light switch is on the outdoor wall of the Love House.

This is a great spot for events however we do require special arrangements including an additional deposit and fees. Arrangements are to be made in advance.

No smoking.

We love animals however, we recently had a problem with a visiting pet and no longer allow pets. It's unfortunate that one spoiled the fun for others.

The love house has many qualities. It has all the important things such as great beds, towels, kitchen ware, but also very tasteful choices in terms of general esthetic. We loved the choice of materials and colors, from the rugs to the curtains. This is the real deal and felt very authentic. The location is great. walking distance to everything. Jacqueline was super helpful and responded to emails very quickly.

Such a great house with beautiful decor. We had everything we needed and really enjoyed just staying in, cooking and hanging out in the beautiful backyard. We were able to walk everywhere and have a nice warm bed to come home to. Absolutely wonderful stay all around and can't wait to come back again!
