The Teacher's House

Unexpected luxury in the Terlingua Ghost Town
in the shadow of the Chisos Mountains, where great stories begin

Seating on the porch.


Teachers know a lot and they have a lot to get away from.

So, it's not surprising that the Teacher's House is a great getaway retreat (although the walls of the original schoolhouse are right in front of you).


This is a great house, but the greatest feature of all is its front porch, which is just outside the soothing comfort of the teacher's bedroom.

This porch offers an everchanging view that outshines any television or computer screen.


There is a second sleeping area that includes a nice sitting area.

The second "bedoom" is also sort of a living area that connects to the kitchen.

The Teacher's bathroom is a one-of-a-kind, hand-made example of the stone-worker's art.

Study the kaleidoscopic cloudscapes from the restful shade of the porch.

Imagine the good times and the heartbreak of the long gone town.

Or, just pour yourself another stiff drink and blot out the problems of the past and present.
