The SpaceSunny, spacious, pine-paneled home cantilevered on a slope in the high desert, 80 miles north of Big Bend National Park and eight miles south of college town, Alpine, TX. The lodge-style house is on eight acres up against thousands more acres of ranch wilderness. Inside, there are oak and pine floors with Persian area rugs throughout and many rooms have fine-grained pine paneling and two story ceilings. There are a total of seven rooms plus three full bathrooms including three bedrooms with king-size bed, double bed, and double foldout couch respectively. In the living room, a wood-burning stove with glass front warms chilly winter evenings. An endless supply of firewood is just outside the door. A large gas grill with mesquite charcoal is on the porch. There is central heat and A/C throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with Calphalon & stainless cookware, Mikasa dinnerware, a Kitchen Aid food processor, toaster, electric crock pot, blender, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, and a complete array of seasonings and condiments. Outside is an herb garden. There is a 60 x 12 foot covered porch and smaller porches on three sides of the house with outdoor furniture. There is plenty of closet space, bed and bathroom linens, down comforters, and a washer and dryer. In addition, there is Wifi and computers for your use along with two large desks. Outside the front door is a pond stocked with Koi fish and pond lilies. During the rainy season (late summer), a mountain brook flows near the house. The home is located near friendly Alpine, TX, home of Sul Ross State University with theater, concert and sports events open to the public. Twenty-five miles from Alpine lie the three small, arts-loving towns of Marfa, Fort Davis, and Marathon. Each offers fine dining as well as cheap, good eateries and multiple music and art venues. McDonald Observatory in the Davis Mountains is an hour away with public events held several times a week. There is also the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute (CDRI) with guided nature walks and, of course, spectacular Big Bend National Park. A must on your itinerary is Terlingua Ghost Town, a unique venue for nightlife and nature fun near Big Bend. FYI: There is a small, shy, barn (outdoor only) cat on the premises which I ask you to feed once daily while you are a guest. Guest AccessGuests have access to the house and 8 1/4 acres surrounding the house. Interaction with GuestsI like to get to know guests a little before I accept the reservation and then communication proceeds as requested or needed. The NeighborhoodThis is a rural setting in the Double Diamond Ranch meaning it is rural but there are neighbors each having 5-20 acre plots. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation. You need a car to get around. However, there is bus service from Alpine to the Midland Airport and some of the neighboring towns: All Aboard America bus line. Every other day, Amtrak stops in Alpine on the Sunset Limited route. The Sunset Limited goes between New Orleans and Los Angeles and connects to other Amtrak routes that branch to the north. Other Things to NoteThis house is situated in the Chihuahuan Desert in a spur of the Rocky Mountains. We are nearly one mile above sea level. The mountains here are between 6,000 and 8,000 feet high, but they don't seem so high from such a high starting point. There is a lot of wildlife here: mule deer, gray fox, wild turkeys, javelina, jack rabbits, cottontail rabbits, racoons, skunks, ring-tailed cats, coyote, bobcats, mountain lions, red-tailed hawks, and other predatory birds, song birds of all sorts including painted buntings, Scott's orioles, western tanagers, juncos, grosbeaks, towhees, etc.

The SpaceThis is a little bunhouse attached to our woodshop in the backyard--it's recently remodeled and (in our humble opinion) quite nice. Currently has a set of bunkbeds, a queen bed, and a couch. Guessing it could sleep 4 adults or a couple and 2 kids. We live in a quiet neighborhood w ample street-side parking. Unfortunately, there is no restroom out there. Guests will be able to use the guest bathroom with easy access in the main house. There is a shower in the house and we do have a few clean towels (we usually have some travel bottles, but you should bring your own soap and shampoo). There is air conditioning and heating in the bunkhouse. To reach the bunkhouse, park in front of the house and walk through the gate on the left side of the house. The bunkhouse is in the back left corner of the backyard. If I know you're coming and I'm in town, I will leave the lights on for you. Call or Text message works better if you need something the day of your arrival (or urgently), as we don't check our email that often. Checkin: Show up and walk in!! There is no key to find or procedure. It's always nice to get a text message reminder that you're coming and what time you expect to arrive. Checkout: place any used sheets and towels in the house in the laundry room. Sweep the floor and take the trash out to the dumpster behind the bunkhouse in the alley. It helps us avoid a cleaning fee and keep costs down if folks pitch in to keep the place ready for the next guests. Guest AccessAdditionally, we have a gazillion (gazebo + pavillion) that folks are welcome to use as well as a gas grill and a fire pit. We only ask that you buy your own firewood or reimburse us for ours if you want to make a fire. There is a mini-fridge in the bunkhouse. We do have a kitchen in the main house, but would not routinely have guests cooking in there. If you needed to prepare food for grilling or wash a few dishes, we could probably work out something on a case-by-case basis. We do have password-protected wireless internet available (netgear94, unevenboat967). Interaction with GuestsWe're kind of open either way. The fact that you will use the guest bathroom in our house, means we'll probably be crossing paths at some point. This space is best used by independent people who just want a little more local flare than a generic hotel would provide when they stay somewhere. We're friendly, outgoing folks and will happily give you tips for enjoying this area, but please don't confuse us for a Holiday Inn. If you build a fire and hang out, then we'll prob hang out a little too--especially if people are picking music. We are also happy to help you plan your trip and local adventures. We're pretty well-versed with the local attractions (Big Bend National Park, Terlingua, Marfa, Marfa Lights, McDonald Observatory, Balmorrhea--pronounced Bal-More-Ray). The NeighborhoodNice, quiet neighborhood close to the center of town. Some of the same things we love about Alpine in general. Getting AroundNo public transportation. It's 0.8 miles, a flat, 16 minute walk, from the Amtrak station downtown. Can easily get around on foot, bicycle, or car with ample streetside parking everywhere. We're 26 miles from Marfa, 26 miles from Fort Davis, and about 80-100 miles from Big Bend depending on the part of the park to which you're going. Other Things to NoteWe have 2 pet turtles, a little free library, and we love music (Katie plays guitar and I play banjo).

The Alpine Bottling Works* was founded in the early 1920‘s by Basil Matthew’s father and uncle, Walter Matthews. It was the original Alpine bottling plant, “...next door to Thain’s Studio, a little garden and then the bottlin’ plant alongside it....the plant was about 60 feet wide and maybe about 100 feet long. It had a porch with a loadin’ dock out on the north side...facin’ the depot, the railroad tracks...there was no sign...people just knew. There was no street signs in Alpine and everybody knew everybody..”* This original plant, The Bottling Works, was the hand bottling kind that used to be called a foot (URL HIDDEN) the machine that has no electricty, no power. The power is all in your feet and in your hands...the bottles had to be taken off the bottle (washing) machine, put on crates and carried over to the bottlin’ machine. We’d have a stack of clean bottles here and then (we’d) bottle them. It was just a one man operation....well, (URL HIDDEN) man runnin’ the washing machine and one doin’ the bottles.. our trucks couldn’t carry but about 50 cases in them, those ol’ Model T trucks..just me, my dad and my brother...of course, one of us would be there all the time...but we didn’t run the bottlin’ process every day...about 2 days a week, you’d bottle up enough for that week .....Basil Matthews p.22 -24 “..we ordered extract from these extract companies..and we’ld mix it with sugar and (URL HIDDEN) of our biggest expenses was the sugar..the extracts were strawberry, lemon, lime, vanilla and Delaware Punch...and at times we’ld run Orange Crush...but it didn’t take much carbonation and we had trouble with the yeast forming in (URL HIDDEN) not having the carbonation, it tended to get bad and formed this (URL HIDDEN) made sort of a wave, it looked like a piece of paper floating in there...” “(In (URL HIDDEN) mother drank some Dr. Pepper up there in Waco and she just insisted on it...we just hounded the Dr. Pepper company to start it here..they finally sent a man out here...and he told me, ‘Well, now you’ve got to put Dr. Peeper signs on your trucks and you gotta git a new bottlin’ machine.’ We was using a foot stomper. Used to be, you did a bottle of beer with it (laughing)...The Coca Cola plant was in Marfa...Coca Cola was the leadin’ drink then and eventually Pepsi-Cola caught up with it...we made the first Dr. Pepper ever in West Texas here!...the first wood barrel of (Dr. Pepper) syrup came to Alpine...we mixed our own syrup on everythin’ else.. At that time, we didn’t have refrigerated water system. So I took a barrel and put a copper coil in it and put a 50 lb block of ice in there to cool the water that was goin’ to the machine.

The SpaceThere is a Baby Grand piano in the library for those who love to play or just pretend. The hacienda is on an acre of land with a surrounding rock wall and several mature 100 year-old White Oak trees on the front lawn; perfect for weddings, festive events, family reunions, or exclusive R&R Guest AccessThe Milky Way can easily be seen on clear nights. Pure well water from underground springs will fulfill your basic needs along with fresh air and a bundle of complimentary Oak firewood. Interaction with GuestsYou are pretty much on your own out there. I will call to see if everything is okay and we also have long distance telephone service on the telephone in the Master Bedroom. The NeighborhoodHi there and I want to welcome you to a very unique experience. My ranch house has a long history. It was first built by Mr. Haley in the 1880's. When Mr. Haley died in 1917 he left the place to my maternal grandfather Mr. George A. Brown. You will see pictures of him around the house. Mr. George A. Brown married my grandmother Augusta West Linn in 1923 and a year later my mother was born in 1924. They christened her Mary Linn Brown and she was actually born in that house. The oldest part of the house has 15 feet ceilings and foot thick walls. The kitchen, dinning room, living room, library and very pink bedroom are the original part of the house. The hallway or telephone room, middle bedroom and back bathroom and bedroom were built in the 1930's. "The new room" as my grandmother would call it was built in the 1960's. That's where the washing machine and dryer and Master bedroom and bathroom are at. Do you see where I'm leading you? No? Well let me explain. The house does not have all the modern conveniences. We do have T.V. so you can watch VHS, and DVD. We do not have central air and central heating. We are working on getting central heating on part of the house and hopefully we'll have that by this winter. We do have fans all over the house. So yes it can get a little warm in the summer and yes it can get cold in the winter but we do have four fireplaces and we do have gas heaters through out the house. My house is out in the country. That means that some times the electricity goes out and we do not have a generator at this time. It does get very dark there at night but you can see all the stars in the sky and if you bring a telescope you'll be pleasantly surprised. You got this far you might as well read the rest. My place is truly unique. You could get stuck one night without the electricity. You could happen to open a drawer and see a mouse (they're country mice so don't worry). You might see spiders, bats, squirrels, skunks, and all kinds of animals. And if your truly lucky you might even get to see Mr. Haley. And one final thing before I forget, the ranch road is a long 5 miles. It's rocky so you must go slow. We are approximately 45 minutes from town. Getting Around18 miles SSW of Alpine. A standard sedan will do just fine on these county maintained country roads. Other Things to NoteA land line and Wi-fi is provided; cell phone reception is non-existent. We do have long distance on the telephones in the master bedroom and kitchen. The house is old and far out in the country. There are all kinds of things that can go wrong. But it's livable and very beautiful so I can't give any refunds.

Mi Casa Es Su Casa! Our custom built spanish style home is a nice blend of Mexican Ranch and Southwest desert. The location is perfect for exploring the Big Bend National Park, stargazing at McDonald's Observatory, or perhaps a strolling through local art galleries and a night out dancing at the RailRoad Blues. we are centrally located to Marfa, Marathon, and Ft. Davis and provide a perfect stopping point for guests looking for a relaxing, art filled space to settle in for the night.The Peach House features work by local artists, a flagstone stone shower, a really comfortable king bed and an outdoor area to enjoy a fire and gaze at the stars. The Peach House is set in a residential area with some open lots around it. There are mountain views to the west and the house is about a mile from downtown Alpine.

The Alpine Bottling Works* was founded in the early 1920's by Basil Matthew's father and uncle, Walter Matthews. It was the original Alpine bottling plant, “...next door to Thain's Studio, a little garden and then the bottlin' plant alongside it....the plant was about 60 feet wide and maybe about 100 feet long. It had a porch with a loadin' dock out on the north side...facin' the depot, the railroad tracks...there was no sign...people just knew. There was no street signs in Alpine and everybody knew everybody..”* This original plant, The Bottling Works, was the hand bottling kind that used to be called a foot stomper. “...it's the machine that has no electricty, no power. The power is all in your feet and in your hands...the bottles had to be taken off the bottle (washing) machine, put on crates and carried over to the bottlin' machine. We'd have a stack of clean bottles here and then (we'd) bottle them. It was just a one man operation....well, actually...one man runnin' the washing machine and one doin' the bottles.. our trucks couldn't carry but about 50 cases in them, those ol' Model T trucks..just me, my dad and my brother...of course, one of us would be there all the time...but we didn't run the bottlin' process every day...about 2 days a week, you'd bottle up enough for that week .....Basil Matthews p.22 -24 “..we ordered extract from these extract companies..and we'ld mix it with sugar and water..one of our biggest expenses was the sugar..the extracts were strawberry, lemon, lime, vanilla and Delaware Punch...and at times we'ld run Orange Crush...but it didn't take much carbonation and we had trouble with the yeast forming in it....by not having the carbonation, it tended to get bad and formed this yeast ....it made sort of a wave, it looked like a piece of paper floating in there...”“(In 1929)..my mother drank some Dr. Pepper up there in Waco and she just insisted on it...we just hounded the Dr. Pepper company to start it here..they finally sent a man out here...and he told me, 'Well, now you've got to put Dr. Peeper signs on your trucks and you gotta git a new bottlin' machine.' We was using a foot stomper. Used to be, you did a bottle of beer with it (laughing)...The Coca Cola plant was in Marfa...Coca Cola was the leadin' drink then and eventually Pepsi-Cola caught up with it...we made the first Dr. Pepper ever in West Texas here!...the first wood barrel of (Dr. Pepper) syrup came to Alpine...we mixed our own syrup on everythin' else..At that time, we didn't have refrigerated water system. So I took a barrel and put a copper coil in it and put a 50 lb block of ice in there to cool the water that was goin' to the machine. Because the gas will not mix unless you've got cold water.... .It was a one man job..we'd set a case of empty bottles down there and just pick one bottle at a time. ...*Oral History, Basil Matthews Murphy Street is artsy and funky and folks are super friendly. Parking on the street by the front door is easy and super safe - as is all of Alpine. Dog and family friendly neighborhood.The Historic (and beautifully/comfortably restored) Bottle House is located next door to the Alpine Studio (our other bnb) and 2 doors down from several fun shops and restaurants where you can dine on tasty mexican food (Jalape単os), enjoy delicious coffee/internet and slurp icy rasps (Raspa Co.) and shop for gifts and treasures (Brown Dog Gardens, Patti Hildreth Studio).

      The SpaceCome stay at our lovely home in Calamity Creek at an elevation of nearly a mile high in the most beautiful land in Texas. Enjoy breathtaking views from the hammocks on our wraparound porch of Cathedral Mountain, McIntyre Peak and Mount Ord. (Yes, there ARE mountains in Texas!) Located just 12 minutes south of Alpine, 45 minutes from Marfa, an hour from the McDonald Observatory and 2 hours from Big Bend National Park, there is plenty of exploring to be had. Or, stay put and enjoy the fresh breeze, sunny skies and starlit nights. Our home is pleasingly remote without a neighbor in view. The home is a half mile from the highway by way of a dirt road situated on 20 acres with several trails for hours of walking and hiking. We pride ourselves on our cool and refreshing, sweet, well water. During your visit, you can take in magnificent sunsets and are sure to catch sight of wildlife from antelope and deer to javelina and birds. Depending on the season, the landscape is also full of butterflies, lizards, crickets and wildflowers. And if you’re lucky, you might even see the Marfa Lights from the swing on the front porch. Really! We’ve seen ‘em! The house itself has two bedrooms downstairs, one with a full-size bed, one with a queen; a bathroom, kitchen, and great room with vaulted ceilings and windows all around to take in the mountain views. There is also an upstairs loft with a queen bed and plenty of office work space. We offer free wifi and have a telephone. There is a separate casita with an additional bathroom and shower, laundry facilities and a queen-sized bed. We make up the beds with only the finest 100% cotton sheets and 100% down pillows and comforters. We also have plush bath linens and local handmade soap. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove and oven, a large fridge with ice-maker and a microwave. And it is well stocked with all the cookware, dishes, spices, oils, and condiments you could need for your mountain vacation. Outside is a large, barrel grill with charcoal at the ready for grilling out. Our heirloom dining room table is set for six but can easily be expanded for a dinner party of ten. And we're stocked with candles and white table linens to step it up a notch -- or to create the romantic dinner for two. One of our favorite things to do is to sit out on the porch with a crackling fire in the chiminea while enjoying the cool night skies. And, of course, the little ones love to roast marshmallows! Speaking of kids, or kids-at-heart, we have lots of books and games for both young and old. Staying at our home in Calamity Creek (not an actual town) is a true escape and a step back in time. An honest-to-goodness retreat. Unplug. Breathe. Listen. Relax.
