EXTRA FEES MAY APPLY. These might not appear in quote and will be added if applicable.
Extra Guest Fee: $20 nightly for the 8th & 9th guest.

This listing is recommended for groups of six to nine, or small groups wanting extra space
Smaller groups might consider Turtle Mountain One (this same property without the 2nd house).

Turtle Mountain Ranch is available for small or large groups renting the whole ranch and either one house or two. This listing is for BOTH houses. The property is ideal for families or groups wanting for a luxurious home, or two, away from home in the Big Bend. Guests can rent the large stone house, or the stone house and the smaller cedar house together. The cedar house is only available to families or groups that are also renting the stone house. To assure privacy for all guests, the cedar house does not rent out separately. Guests have exclusive access to 143 private acres, including a massive bluff and the western half of Turtle Mountain, you’ll have ample seclusion and plenty of land to explore and enjoy.

The stone house sleeps up to five and the cedar house sleeps an additional four, for a maximum occupancy of nine. The base lodging fee is based on four guests. There is an additional charge for each guest over four. Groups of six to nine must rent "Turtle Mountain Ranch TWO for both the Stone House and the Cedar House. TMR ONE is also available at a lower cost for smaller groups that don't need the second house.

The large stone and glass house was custom built by a wealthy oil man as a private retreat and a place to host parties and entertain guests. It is now available as a vacation rental for visitors that are looking for someplace truly extraordinary. The main house sleeps five, with one king, one queen bed, and one twin bed. Every room has one or more sliding glass doors opening onto a wood deck or stone patio with breathtaking views. Spacious living areas, extensive stone masonry, fifteen sliding glass doors, vaulted ceilings, large porches, and southwest furnishings combine to create an elegant home base for your Big Bend adventures.

The smaller cedar house has two large bedrooms and a large bathroom. Each room has its own wood-burning stove, small fridge, coffee maker, and spacious closet. Clerestory windows and large glass doors provide wonderful natural light and great views. Exposed wooden beams, artisan tile floors, southwestern style wooden furniture, and high-quality bedding provide comfort and a welcoming atmosphere.

The stone house features a very large and open kitchen with plenty of room for cooking family meals or hosting parties. The dining room and living room surround a massive wood burning stone fireplace that opens to both rooms. The dining room has a massive table for shared meals or games. It also includes a large wet bar stocked with stemware and glasses (BYOB and mixers). The living room features a competition sized pool table that was handmade in Mexico and a large semi-circle leather sofa. The master bedroom has a king four poster bed and opens onto a large covered deck. The original library space has been converted into a separate sleeping area with a queen sleigh bed, twin day bed and access to a large covered deck. There is one bathroom, with a large shower, tub, and even a bidet. While it does sleep up to five, some groups of three, four, or five prefer to add the cedar house for extra space and an additional bathroom. Let us know if you would like to add the cedar house.

As extraordinary as the home (or homes) is, and “extraordinary” is no exaggeration, the real attractions are the land, the wildlife, the views, the solitude, and the wild and rugged Big Bend region. Adventurous guests will want to hike up onto Turtle Mountain and explore the canyons and hidden seep spring. Be warned though, the hike is challenging and some routes require rock climbing. Both mountain lions and black bears frequently inhabit and raise cubs near the base of the bluff up behind the house. They are rarely seen, but the mountain lions are often heard. The property is also home to mule deer, javelina, aoudads, coyote, foxes, bobcats, red-tailed hawks, peregrine falcons, quail, and many other species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. No hunting or discharge of firearms is allowed.

The drive to Turtle Mountain Ranch includes about 2.2 miles of dirt/rock road. This road is normally passable by a typical passenger vehicle. However powerful rains can occasionally cause minor washouts that may make a high clearance vehicle such as a truck or SUV recommended. Contact us about driving conditions if you are uncertain or concerned. Drivers that have never been off the pavement may be a bit intimidated, but the drive is quite easy once you slow down and adjust to it.

With all there is to do on Turtle Mountain Ranch and in the area, you’ll have a hard time fitting it all in. That’s okay. We’d love for you to come back again and again.

Terlingua, Texas, Verenigde Staten

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.
