My one room house is quiet and isolated with amazing views. Just minutes from the Terlingua ghost town. We live off the grid, with compost toilet, solar power and water catchment. There is a double bed and a single hide a bed, with a good sized closet/store room. Outdoor cooking on a propane grill or propane stove top with cooking tools only, please bring paper plates etc. we have a small refrigerator and several water and rodent proof cabinets. We have, DVD player and dvd's to enjoy during the time you're not having a blast outside.

The space

Off grid living is not that bad!
The compost toilet isn't bad either, it's simple, it doesn't stink(if you follow the rules on the wall) I think you'll be surprised and it can be re-freshed daily if needed as well.
The house is not finished, but it's comfortable and clean, we have upgraded to a queen bed!
The solar is the only tricky part. If it's cloudy, you will have enough power to keep the fridge running, but you have to be careful with the power to not damage the batteries.
Water is captured from the roof and stored in a tank. I also haul water as needed, so I assure you there will be water but please be careful not to waste it. There is a shower but it may be cold. Hot showers are available at the BIg Bend Resort for a couple bucks. And really this place is about relaxing, enjoying yourselves, you'll be out enjoying the outdoors anyway, come back clean and enjoy the rest of your evening any way you want to.
There is a fire pit, a cool pool (for when it's hot) outdoor cooking and an amazing night sky without the lights of the ghost town. Youll be alone in you're own little piece of Awesome! getting here after dark can be tricky! Please plan to get here before dark, or make special arrangements with me.

Very tucked away in a gorgeous part of West Texas. The night sky was delightful and the lightning storm was unreal. Very comfortable, and I loved the outdoor shower. Travis was incredibly helpful and kind. Thanks again.

What's unique place. If you want an experience you just can't get by booking into a regular RV park or hotel then this is it. We loved our stay. The setting is just stunning and you'll feel like the only people left on the earth.

This was a very special place to stay with a 360° view with just beautiful nature. It was easy to find! Good directions! First night we slept in the car instead of the house because there was a large scorpion in it and that felt unsafe. The next day by daylight we discovered it was a fake one on the wall..... Shower was perfect. Restroom with amazing view! Thanks... we will remember this place forever.
