The Holiday Hotel is conveniently located in the Terlingua Ghost Town -- the most famous ghost town in Texas.
(And it's definitely the best hotel in the ghost town.)
The Holiday Hotel is no franchise resort. It's perfect for raucous revelry or a romantic rendezvous, or both...
You'll find many things in the Ghost Town in the exact condition they've been in for centuries, and that's great for exploring, but at the end of the day you'll want air conditioning.
Just down the road a piece from the end of the earth is the Rio Grande Rock House. This is not some neo-cowboy fantasy replica. It's real by-God Texas history. Built in the early 19th century as a trading post for trappers and settlers from both sides of the border, it's still in the same family.
For years, only the hardiest locals inhabited the sturdy ruins, but recently a few insightful archeologists/visionaries began a spare-no-expense renovation that is repairing history.
The Owner's Shack
Candidly referred to as the owner’s shack among local residents, because this is where the present owner of Terlingua would camp out and enjoy the starry nights when all the other accommodations were rented. Originally this small one room rock casita was reserved for honeymoon couples during the early days of Terlingua. It was isolated from surrounding neighbors making for amazing memories. Surrounded by deep canyons on three sides and isolated from most of the town, this small casita was the perfect romantic getaway during the early mining era. Completely “off the grid,” you can relive the early mining days of Terlingua. This casita offers no indoor plumbing or electricity. Bottled drinking water is provided, there is an old fashioned out-house, and visitors have access to a local public shower. The small casita has room for 2 twin sized beds, with additional cots.
Casa Buena Vista
Reunite the family together by staying in this historical site. Casa Buena Vista is one of the few adobe structures left and has endured many years of harsh desert. It was originally built to house the mine foremen. You and your family will enjoy the wonderful view of the Chisos Mountain on the front porch. This Casa contains a master bedroom with one queen size bed and a double bed in the second bedroom. There’s a double bed on the screened in porch. You can enjoy a family meal with a full furnished kitchen. You choose to bathe in the antique claw foot bathroom or in the outdoor shower. The living room contains a hideaway sofa with a gas-log fireplace. Casa Buena Vista can sleep up to 7 people and is a dog free environment.
