    Crystal Mountain One: Custom Built in 2019. Secluded and Private. Seven Miles From Pool

    Historic vacation home in Alpine
    Crystal Mountain One was custom built in 2019. Relax inside or outside and enjoy the mountain views. Built to accommodate four guests in comfort and style. Rent one home or two. The listing is for one home. If you have a larger group, consider booking Crystal Mountain Two, that listing is for this same house PLUS another home next door. The second home is for overflow only and never rents out separately. You will never have to share your space or the 65 acres with anyone other than your own group. Crystal Mountain One on Terlingua Ranch is the ideal home base for your visit to the Big Bend Region. Modern design will set the perfect tone for your Big Bend adventure. The surprising seclusion will provide ample privacy and solitude. Relax inside or outside. Lots of space, large windows, covered decks, a large stone patio, and 65 private acres provide lots of options on where to hang out. At night watch meteors fall and satellites fly overhead as you marvel at the Milky Way. Relax around the campfire with a refreshing beverage, maybe even a sausage on a stick, or better yet, some s’mores. Whatever you eat and drink around the fire ring, will go well with campfire stories, some songs, or whatever else you want to do. It’s just you and your partner, or family and friends, under a starry Texas sky. During the day, head into to park, down to Terlingua, or to the Rio Grande, or just enjoy the home and the secluded 65 acres of Chihuahuan Desert habitat. At the property, relax inside or outside or go for a hike around the rugged and scenic property. Wildlife and diverse desert plant life and abundant and varied. The living room and kitchen are open concept with lots of space and amazing views through large picture windows. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, cookware, utensils, a large fridge, glass top stove and oven, dishwasher, and all the basics you would expect in a large kitchen. The bedrooms have king bed in the master and a queen bed in the second bedroom. The bathroom is spacious and stylish with two sinks and a large shower. Terlingua Ranch Lodge, just ten minutes away has a great pool plus the Bad Rabbit Café for great food, cold drinks, and frequent live music. The lodge office is also the place to register if you want to explore the Christmas Mountain conservation area. Terlingua and the western entrance to Big Bend National Park is a short 35-minute drive away. Adventure outfitters located in Terlingua offer river trips, horseback riding, jeep tours, ATV adventures, Jeep rentals, guided hikes, and mountain bike rentals. The famous Terlingua Ghost Town is just 40 minutes away. Both the Ghost Town and the Terlingua/Study Butte area offer shopping, dining, drinking, live music, art galleries, and more. Heading another 15 minutes west from Terlingua will take you to Lajitas for more upscale dining options, a few great shops, and the chance to meet Clay Henry, the beer drinking goat that happens to be the mayor. Big Bend Ranch State Park (the national park’s wild and rugged cousin) is right there as well. Stop in at the Barton Warnock center just before you get to Lajitas for an overview of the park, museum, and a terrific book shop. Alpine, Fort Davis, Marfa, and the McDonald Observatory are also within easy day trip range. Come on down. Enjoy the Big Bend. Do as much or as little as you like. You’ll have a memorable time and will likely start planning your return trip before you even leave. That’s great. We’ll love to have come back over and over. In fact, that’s how the owner of Crystal Mountain became the owner. He came out here so often and enjoyed staying at other Big Bend Vacation Rental properties so much that he eventually decided to acquire his own properties. He now owns Crystal Mountain One and Two and Crystal Valley, just a short drive away. He was very deliberate and considerate in incorporating all the things he enjoyed the most at other rentals, plus adding extra touches to create the ultimate Big Bend vacation home base. Now, he’s eager to share it all with you.

      This place is AWESOME! Brand new, super, super nice. Very secluded, and the views are amazing! The online pictures are nice but don’t truly show how wonderful this place is. Go ahead and push the “Book Now” button. You will not be disappointed in this beautiful rental.

        Nothing short of Sublime

        This property is exactly as described - if not better. I highly recommend working w/Janet and Daryl. We've stayed in other properties they manage and also had excellent experiences.

          Great place to get away! Amazing view of the stars.

          This is exactly the remote experience we were looking for. The house was exactly as pictured and described. There is very little light pollution at this location. Keep in mind the last mile is fairly rough dirt road, better for a high clearance vehicle. Thanks for a great stay!

            Beautiful views

            We loved our stay here. The property was new, clean, and would be great for small families or a small group of friends. The location is very secluded, with mountains surrounding the property (the pictures do not do this property justice). The property is about 30 min from big bend’s park entrance, which we found very convenient. We had a great time and will definitely stay here again the next time we want to visit big bend and are already telling all our friends that this is the place to rent.
