Crystal Mountain One: Custom Built in 2019. Secluded and Private. Seven miles from pool.
• Modern Home on 65 Private Acres
• Large Livingroom and Kitchen
• Patios and Decks with Mountain Views
• Fire Ring for Campfires & S'mores

The space
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 the Bad Rabbit Cafe; 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.

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.

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.
