Welcome to the far west Texas ! Willow House Hotel, situated almost at the Mexican border into the Big Bend National Park, The 12 casita desert retreat on over 250 acres of private land.
Far-West Spirit at the Willow House
Willow House is a desert retreat located 6 miles from Big Bend National Park and just outside the center of Terlingua, Texas. A place to stay and unwind while taking in unobstructed views of the Chisos Mountain Range, it is the perfect location to relax and unwind in Far West Texas..
The hotel has cubist and minimalist architecture which is an interpretation of the original Far-West spirit. Raw materials and shapes and a simple and austere way of life, beside the contact with the wild nature, really remind us the pilgrims’ way of life. The Willow House is constructed with several concrete blocks that face the Chisos Mountains.
A calm, contemplative and beautiful place to stay.
Over the years, Terlingua has become quite the getaway, and more and more people are packing up and heading west for a change of pace. Now, Willow House is there to fuel the souls of those who are called by the mountains peace.

How to get there ?
Airports & travel time
All above mentioned airports have rental car providers. Book rental cars in advance as South Western road trips have become wildly popular. Midland Airport will likely have minimal rental car options and fewer flight options. The Willow House staff recommend flying into El Paso- it is a beautiful drive (especially if you take the Hwy 170 River Road) and it has more rental car options than Midland.
Grocery options: If you plan to cook during your Willow House stay, keep in mind there is only 1 small general store near the property- Cottonwood General Store. It is approximately 4.5 miles from site. Cottonwood General has a great selection of just about everything you would need. They are slightly limited in meat and fresh produce selections, so consider planning ahead if you are craving a specialty item for dinner.
For the widest selection, we recommend bringing a cooler in your car and stopping at Porter's on your way into town which is the grocery store in Alpine (80 miles from Terlingua) prior to arrival.
Wherever you are coming from, there will be a drive involved. However, driving through Far West Texas is one of the best parts about coming out here. Once out of the city you are traveling from, enjoy hours of beautiful open road.
