My two friends and I really enjoyed our stay here! The Old Country Store was just as described, and we loved having a flush toilet & hot shower & comfortable beds & AC while staying in the desert! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Mike and Keri's place was exactly as described. They made sure to give through instructions prior to arrival for us to be able to enjoy our time in Terlingua/Big Bend area without unexpected issues. As Mike noted there was no cellphone or cellular internet service but we had no problem getting to the place following the easy instructions given by Mike and Keri. It is close to Big Bend National Park and the surrounding cities with only West Texas can offer. We enjoyed our time at the old county store and exploring the outdoors while our 3 dogs were safe back in the doggy room in Mike and Keri's house. We felt safe and loved the backyard and staring at the stars at night. There's plenty of drinks and quick breakfast items in the house but we highly recommend prepping/bringing your own food (we packed our meals in our cooler for the 2 nights we stayed) since there isn't any restaurants for quick bites unless you go to local small restaurants. You'll enjoy your stay at this place for sure!

What a wonderful place to stay at for my visit to Big Bend...everything that was listed on the description (which is a lot) was surely included during our stay! Also it is fairly a 15-20 min drive to the Big Bend National Park, Ghost Town, grocery store, and gas station. Great distance and a scenic drive! Also make sure to stargaze on the front porch...truly amazing!

Omgosh! Where to start. This house is fantastic. As a mom traveling with her 3 kids I felt totally safe in this house. The "store" actually provided TONS of unexpected fun for my 3 kids who played cashier with the Monopoly money for days! The fenced in yard geared towards pets made a safe desert exploring area, that I felt totally comfortable with my kids in (2 - 7 year olds and a 12 year old) alone while I made dinner. Although the area outside was absolutely fun to explore too!! Who would have thought a toaster type oven could make so much! The detached bathroom was not an issue at all and the utility sink outside with a hose attachment was a secret blessing after a VERY muddy day at the Santa Elena Canyon!The Country Store was certain quiet and fun, the ranch itself yielded more wildlife then the short drive to Big Bend. The Stars were AMAZING! The pool was spotless and we often were the only ones! Although every single person we encountered on the ranch was so nice! A short drive puts you in Terilingua! Big Bend, Aloine or Marfa! The stocked fridge was awesome after a longer day on the road than thought and everything you could need was there. The only downfall? I wish would have stayed longer! The Country Store is one of those homes that makes you fall in love with big skys and warm breezy nights and you find yourself driving slower by for sale signs!

We enjoyed our stay at the Old Country Store. It is very conveniently located near Big Bend NP, has a great outdoor grilling area, and comfy beds. Would definitely return to stay here again!

Full-time I live off grid in a solar & wind powered cabin in the desert mountains of the Big Bend with my wife and pet dogs & cats. I enjoy building with the natural stone, feeding the wildlife and growing food in my greenhouse. Big Liverpool FC fan & vegetarian.
