Star Lodge on Terlingua Ranch is a contemporary custom-built solar home for up to six guests. Situated on 80 private acres with stunning mountain views and breathtaking night skies. You will have plenty of privacy and room to enjoy your stay. Two bedrooms. One and one-half bathrooms. Open living, dining, kitchen area. Covered parking. Expansive covered patios. And 80 private and pristine acres of Chihuahuan Desert wilderness. It is named “Star Lodge” because it is one of the best places in the continental US for enjoying views of the star filled sky.

This remote eco-friendly home has all the conveniences of a grid-tied home. The professionally designed and installed solar system features lithium-ion batteries, a large solar array, and state of the art power inverter and battery charging technology. Heat, hot water, oven, stove, and outdoor grill use clean burning propane gas. Water is harvested by rain-water collection and filtered and treated for purity. Bottled water is also provided for drinking, making coffee, cooking, and other consumption.

The master bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a bunk bed with a twin over a full-size futon that can be used as a bed or a sofa. Both bedrooms have smart TVs that can be used with your streaming services. Both bedrooms share a “jack and jill” bathroom with two sinks, a flushing toilet, and a tiled shower. There is also a second bathroom with a single sink and a flush toilet, accessed from the living room.

The home features and open concept living, dining, kitchen area that is ideal for spending time together. The kitchen is equipped a full-size fridge, double sink, gas stove and range, microwave, coffee maker, blender, and a full array of cookware, dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. There is also space for you to put away your groceries. Indoor dining is at a four-stool bar around the kitchen island or the living room coffee table. However, the best place to enjoy meals is at the table on the covered patio. The living room space has a comfortable sofa and chairs.

The outdoor space has two large, covered patios with lots of comfortable and stylish chairs, plus a table with benches that will seat six, and a Weber propane grill. There is a covered carport for your vehicle and plenty of room for several vehicles if a group of six arrives in separate vehicles. A walking trail and a private road leads to a scenic hill on the top of the property.

Relax around the home. Explore the 80 acres. Prepare your meals inside or outside. Drive to the Terlingua Ranch pool ($8 per person per day). Dine out and enjoy live entertainment at the nearby Bad Rabbit Café at Terlingua Ranch Lodge or the restaurants and bars in Terlingua, the Ghost Town, Lajitas, or in Big Bend National Park. Hike or drive (4WD recommend) up the rarely visited Christmas Mountains trail to the summit of Christmas Mountain for incredible views(register and get the gate key at the Terlingua Ranch Lodge). Explore Big Bend National Park or Big Bend Ranch State Park on foot, by bike, or by motor vehicle. Take a float trip through the stunning canyons of the Rio Grande. Go on a guided hike, horseback ride, ATV ride, or jeep tour. Bring or rent mountain bikes and ride on the Lajitas or BBRSP mountain bike trails or the roads around the property and in the parks.

Terlingua, Texas, États-Unis

TERLINGUA RANCH: Located between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park and including much of the town of Terlingua, Terlingua Ranch is a private subdivision of over 190,000 acres, divided into 9,500 tracts owned by about 5,000 individuals and crisscrossed by 1,100 miles of dirt and rock roads. Tracts range from five acres to several hundred acres. It is some of the most rugged and scenic land in Texas.

Back in the 1960’s, the Ghost Town and much of what later became “Terlingua Ranch” was owned by racing legend and car designer extraordinaire, Carol Shelby and some of his friends. The decided to promote the area by holding a chili cook-off in the then abandoned Ghost Town. That little stunt of a cook-off grew into CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International) which now hosts nearly 500 chili cook-offs around the nation and internationally, all leading up the championship cook-off every year in Terlingua. Shelby and friends later subdivided the Ranch and started selling it off to hunters and rugged naturalists. Over the decades, the area was reborn and an eclectic community of nature lovers, artists, musicians, adventurers, and folks just wanting to escape from “civilization” has grown and started to resettle this rough country.

People have come and gone. New buildings have risen while others have fallen, Dreams have been realized and others crushed. Through it all, the land remains. The harsh desert and vast openness encourages positive development and slowly swallows up and recovers from past abuses. The old cinnabar mine sites and ranching outposts persist as relics and ghost towns, some redeveloped, some carefully preserved, and others dissolving back into the desert. Abandoned dreams eventually become points of interests for those of us that stumble upon them decades later. Terlingua Ranch is a bizarre mix of old and new, good and bad, growth and decline, all completely unregulated. Modern homes with high values and stunning designs stand beside dilapidated do-it-yourself mistakes and abandoned ruins of the 1800’s and early 1900’s.

The landscape is even more varied than the people and the structures. Rugged mountains, deep canyons, wild arroyos, dry and wet creeks, peaceful valleys, breathtaking badlands, moonscape like mud flats, the remains of ancient volcanoes, and fossilized ancient seabeds. All of it nurturing a vast array of plant life and wildlife. Around every corner and over every hill lies new and unexpected surprises.

The Ranch is now home to a few hundred hardy souls. It is also dotted with a diverse array of vacation rental lodging options and campsites. Like the diverse land, they range in quality, style, value, and price. A few are amazing dream destinations. Some are good places to sleep. Others are the stuff of nightmares. (We don’t manage any in the nightmare category.)

Big Bend Vacation Rentals started out in 2007 and initially managed three of the first four vacation rentals in the Terlingua and Terlingua Ranch area. We now manage dozens out of a couple of hundred options. We represent dozens of property owners and have hosted tens of thousands of guests. You can trust us as managers, and you can rely on the properties that we manage. We have become very selective about the properties and the property owners that we add to our portfolio.

HELLO BIG BEND TRAVELERS. We joined Airbnb in 2020 but have been managing dozens of quality vacation rentals in the Big Bend Region since 2007. We would be proud to host you and will do our absolute best to earn your business and ensure your complete satisfaction. Janet founded what is now Big Bend Vacation Rentals in 2007. It all started when we sold a home we built to a couple that asked us to manage it as a vacation rental. That was the start of a new chapter in our lives. Since then, we have been honored to host tens of thousands of travelers. It brings us joy and pride to be able to manage dozens of vacation rentals for wonderful owners. Sharing their homes with others and creating opportunities for so many amazing people is a blessing we could never have imagined. Our joy comes from sharing our good fortune and helping others to experience the best that the Big Bend of southwest Texas has to offer. We have a team of professional housekeepers and a maintenance crew. All of us are dedicated to making your Big Bend vacation enjoyable and trouble-free. Let us know how we can serve you. We will do so with a smile. COVID-19 UPDATES: FULL REFUNDS for all COVID-19 related cancellations. Regardless of any restrictions or timelines on our normal cancellation policies, we have been, and will continue to, issue 100% refunds or credits for any reservation that is either cancelled or rescheduled due to concerns, closures, or travel restrictions related to COVID-19 or any future pandemic of similar proportion. We request that guests provide us as much advance notice as possible. We also request that guests consider rescheduling instead of cancelling. We are all in this together. We want our guests to make the safety of themselves, their family and community, and our family and community their highest priority when making or revising travel plans. CLEANING & DISINFECTING: We have always prided ourselves in providing clean accommodations. That commitment is now more important than ever. For the safety of our guests and staff, we are temporarily imposing a one-day vacancy between all stays. That extra time between stays is being used for extensive cleaning and disinfecting, including disinfecting all commonly touched surfaces and laundering all linens. Regardless of any actions taken by us, it is impossible to guarantee a risk-free environment. All guests assume personal responsibility for their own travel decisions and their own health.
