Big Bend lodging recommendations?
« on: January 12, 2006, 03:32:39 PM »
I plan on traveling to Big Bend via Balmorhea and Indian Lodge in Ft. Davis in early March.  I've stayed at the the Chisos Mining Company and the Lodge in Big Bend which were both good accommodations.  Any other suggestions for affordable, similar type lodging for a solo traveler in Terlingua?  Maybe the "Ranch"?  

Thanks for any input.

Jim

Lodging in Big Bend

We have always stayed in the Basin lodge or the stone cottages in the basin during all of our trips each summer (and plan on doing so again this summer).  You cannot beat their location and the ease by which you can get to the other areas of the park.  Terlingua and Study Butte each have some nice facilities as well.  But...our preference has always been the basin due to it's central location.

The Ranch has cabins and a restraurant, but you're looking at a good 45 min. drive back to the park.  Big Bend Motor Inn/ Mission Lodge in Study Butte is the closest and is somewhat cheaper than Chisos Lodge, cleaner than Chisos Mining Co..
