Title: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: iCe on August 30, 2009, 12:11:13 PM
A few weeks ago I made a last minute decision to head for the park for a day. As usual I didn't want to leave the second that I got there so I called the lodge to see if there was a cabin available. I've been wanting to check the cabins out for some time now and I figured this was a good chance to do that even though I was solo. I called the lodge and all that they had was the VIP cabin and at 10am it was only a maybe. I called back at 3:30pm (they said 4 but by then I really wanted to stay and I didn't have any camping gear since I was technically on a work trip so I was getting antsy) and the cabin was available. They looked at me funny when I said it was just me  :icon_smile: Hey! I like me. I'm a big boy... I know how to stay by myself  :rolling:

First impressions- Holy crap... this would be a great place to come for a weekend getaway with my girlfriend. It had "romantic" written all over it... which of course did me absolutely no good at the time. It's an old school cabin. Very clean. Cozy. If you are a coffee drinker bring your own coffee maker... what they supply is standard motel fare where the coffee is in a packet made from a filter. I'm one of those people that grinds their beans fresh every day so take the suggestion with a grain of salt. I improvised by using regular coffee filters and some ground coffee that I had with me. That's about as nit picky as I can get. I found the entire experience there to be wonderful... Very relaxing. It had a very private feel although it was a short walk back to the lodge. I almost tried to stay another day... Please understand... it's not Hampton Inn or Omni nice... it's rustic. The floors are stone. The walls are ??? rock/adobe/brick? Don't know really. But... the cabin is clean and it has an ambiance that is not describable in words. It is a couples retreat imho and I highly recommend it.

I'm sorry to say that I only have one image of the cabin and it's an outside view. Not the best either.

I agree... I thought even the regular cabins were pretty nice... here's a few inside shots I took of the one I stayed in back in Feb:

Lets try this again... What is the largest cabin size? Do you know? I could see taking some friends there sometime. It's like pulling teeth to get people that have never been there to go... They think it's a desert wasteland  :willynilly:
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: dkerr24 on August 30, 2009, 01:24:59 PM
I'm not sure what the largest sized one is... the one I had was definitely one of the smaller ones as it was along a row - it wasn't a separate cabin by itself.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: iCe on August 30, 2009, 02:55:23 PM
Considered where it is... I would say the accommodations are pretty decent.

By the way... the let's try this again start to my post was related to me typing something stupid and then coming back and editing it  :icon_biggrin: I just wanted to clarify that because it sounded kind of odd to me when I read it just now.

During our first trip to BIBE in 2003, we stayed in one of the Casa Grande rooms.  We enjoyed it.  The next year, we booked one of the Roosevelt cabins (as noted in the pictures, above) and absolutely enjoyed it.   We were there in the summer and they do not have air conditioning, but even in July, you do not need the A/C.  It was so cool to hear the wind blowing thru the trees once dark set in.  Since that time, we have always stayed in one of those cabins.  My wife does not really enjoy camping...but she loves our trips to BIBE when we stay in the cabins.

BigBendHiker's wife and my wife are cut from the same mold.  She loves being in the Park, but likes that shower at the end of the day.  And I like being there with her. Staying in the motel or cabins enables me to get a quicker jump on the day than I would have were I camping.  My back definitely appreciates it. I do miss the camping though.

Luckily, my wife's willing to do what it takes to make early reservations that gets us cabins sometimes.  We were fortunate to get a cabin (#101) over Spring Break.  Our friends were in 102.  Both those cabins had 2 double beds in the large room and a small side room with an additional double bed.  The side room had a curtain that could be drawn. Good for me staying up reading and planning the next days hikes while the kids slept.

If I'm not mistaken, the cabin you've pictured, iCe, is the cabin located just south of the motel units, just barely down the road leading to the cabins.  The carpeted floor differed from the stone floors in at least 101 and 102.  Those cool stone floors felt mighty good on my bare feet after a long day of hiking.  They are also remarkably efficient at shattering dropped wine glasses.

We've also stayed in the adjoining cabins up the hill, but it was 10+ years ago and I don't recall it too well.  I like that 101-103 are stand alone units.

Yep. That's the cabin. They called it the VIP cabin. Perhaps because they could up the cost by $30.00. :icon_smile: It had stone floors. The main area is a bedroom. Small bathroom to the far right and a small "sitting area" to the near right. That's it. It seemed to me to be perfect for someone wanting to get away to themselves or even better, get away with their wife or girlfriend.

When I checked in the girl excitedly told me that my room had a tv  :icon_lol: I rarely watch tv at home... I think it was in the armoir... I don't know  :icon_lol:

That cabin is great for seeing wildlife.  Deer and javelina will come up that little ravine and wander right up to the porch in the evening.  Just sit quietly and wait.

We stayed in #101 last year. It's a nice cabin and quite cool.

(http://www.texbrick.com/photo/bb_sept_08/9443.jpg)

The only catch is that there's a house-sized boulder blocking the view towards the Window. However, if you're willing, just climb up on top (it's relatively flat up there) and have a seat. It's probably the best view of the Window in the whole Basin :icon_lol:

Yep, we've stayed in #103 too, it is simply amazing, the best view by far!  The cabins are great, we usually bring a stove and set it up somewhere outside (watching it closely) and just have a great time.  Bring your own blender, make margaritas, and watch the sun set!

Any pictures posted anywhere of the Stone Cottages 101, 102, and 103? I believe I stayed in 101 once after arriving and founding out that our reservations had been overlooked for 14 men so they scattered us thru out building B and C and one stone cottage. I am more interested in #101 than the rest.

No I missed that, thanks. I am beginning to believe we stayed in the Guest Cottage, which I believe isn't being rented anymore due to restaurant manager living there? I also noticed that none of the stone cottages show up available on the online reservations with Chiso Mountain Lodge website, and that other online reservations site is higher in price as is the Chiso site.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: CactusFlower on April 23, 2010, 07:14:05 PM
1badk, I'm not sure what website you looked at but at this one:

http://foreverlodging.com/lodging.cfm?PropertyKey=73 (http://foreverlodging.com/lodging.cfm?PropertyKey=73)

the cottages are listed as Roosevelt Stone Cottages, currently $137, with a note that they will go up to $144 in 2011.  They sure are getting expensive.

Post by: presidio on April 24, 2010, 02:42:41 AM
they will go up to $144 in 2011.  They sure are getting expensive.

It's a supply and demand thing, except here it works in reverse.

As visitation goes down due to any number of factors....fees, general economic conditions, or just fewer people willing to spend the money, they have to keep raising the price to offset the lost business and keep their profit margin up. Of course, even if every room was filled every night of the year, they don't lower prices they've raised.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: CactusFlower on April 24, 2010, 12:46:31 PM
Presidio, you are exactly right.  The other thing that works in their favor is lack of competition close by.  I generally don't mind them charging whatever they want to (as long as they don't change it once you make the reservation, like we heard about on the other thread) because it does come down to, how important is it for you to have a bed/bathroom/heater?  Sometimes I go, it is important, other times and more often, not so much.  I'll see if I can dig out some of my pictures to post from cabin #103.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: fc7cuda on April 24, 2010, 10:26:05 PM
I've stayed/seen all 4 cottages and would recommend any of them, each has it's own slice of BB pleasure.  103 has best window view, 101 and 102 have the boulder that the kids love to climb, at great views of the basin, window, and Casa Grande.  #100 is more secluded and romantic...plenty of wildlife sightings, too.

Cost has risen on the cottages over the years, but depending on your group size it's not too bad.  More flexibility to enjoy your stay than in a motel room. 

Worth it for me to stay in a cabin, unless we're back country camping... :icon_smile:

Here are a few promised pictures: sunset from #103, my dad making homemade ice cream on the porch and, finally, what the interior looks like when you are sharing with 5 (adult) family members!  Sure helps to make the cabins more affordable but gets just a little on the tight side at times.  Thank goodness the porch is spacious

I have stayed in all 3 of the stand alone cottages 101, 102 & 103 in the last 2 years so do not believe the prior posted link is any of those which all have 3 double beds.  Cottage 101 faces the ravine between the motel and the cottages with the huge boulder to the west of the patio area blocking the view of the Window. This looks like what may be cottage 100(?) which is along the road between the motel units and the cottages.  I had been told it was not leased as a staff member was residing there when I inquired at some point.

I stayed is Stone Cottage 100 (VIP cabin, etc) in April. I've stayed there 4 or 5 times prior. It's not easy to get and it's pricey but it's my favorite

Which cabins are not duplexes?  I.e., stand-alone cottages?
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: Flash on March 20, 2014, 11:31:00 AM
101-103 are standalone.

104 and 105 are the duplex.

I have the roosevelt #101 cottage for the weekend.  Bringing my jeep unlimited and will want to take off the doors once I arrive.  Anyone know how far away the cottage is from parking or a place I can pull my vehicle up to?  Those doors are heavy and I'll have to carry them in.  Other option would be to move a Rio Grande room (there's just 2 of us) but seems like it would be a big downgrade.  Opinions are appreciated as this will be my first time in the area!
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: Quatro on May 15, 2014, 01:12:26 PM
Parking is no more than 20 yards max.  Might be 5 yards closer at Rio Grande.  NO WAY would I switch.  Cabins will have more room to store a door also. Cabins are far superior. But I did break a wine bottle in 101 about 5 years ago, so beware!

Steelfrog is correct about 103 having a much better view.  Switch if offered the chance.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: Don H on May 15, 2014, 01:12:55 PM
The parking spaces for 101 are at the most no farther than 25 yards to the porch and door to the cabin.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: Don H on May 15, 2014, 01:15:26 PM
Ya beat me to the gun quatro, but yea, not too far to carry them.  Cabins definitely beat the alternative!

Post by: beth_hrgem on May 15, 2014, 01:35:49 PM
Perfect!  Thank you so much for the quick response and tips on #103.  I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this forum, it's been so helpful, entertaining and has definitely gotten me pumped up for the trip...you guys rock!    :13:

Worst case scenario: pull up in front of the cabin and remove doors, then go park.

And for reference:
Here's the Chisos Mountains Lodge map  they have at the front desk that shows the locations/names of the various lodgings.

In Richard's photo above, the closest/best place to park for 101 is where the black truck is.  The pathway to the door goes around the left side of the cabin to the (back) where the door is.

For those of you familiar with Cabins 102 and 103, the consensus seems to be that the view is better from 103, but on GE the patio area of 102 looks relatively huge and the view from there (the patio) seems to be equal? Yes? No? Does 103 even have a patio? Could someone familiar with both contrast the differences for me us?  Thanks.
Title: Re: Chisos Mountain Lodge- Cabin
Post by: iCe on May 15, 2014, 06:31:52 PM
100 has it's own parking area. I usually call the front desk and ask for it when I stay there. Again, it's pricey, but if it's a special occasion or you just want something separate it's a good choice

102 has a side view of the window and does have a very nice porch.  103 has a smaller porch on its north side (towards 103).  I haven't been inside 103 but it has a dead on view of The Window.  There's no shade I don't think though so on a summer stay that's something to think about.  Pretty sure there is no AC in the cottages.

There isn't. I've stayed in 101 and up on the hill (106?) in July and August and I didn't need AC... I keep my AC thermostat on 77 at home in the summer though...

From 103 you sit on the porch to see The Window.  The porch at 103 is not as nice as the patio at 102 but the view of The Window is perfect.   I've got reservations next year for 102 and 103 with friends. I plan to sit on the porch of 103 to watch the sunset and on the patio of 102 visit with my friends.

FM, you can see the edge of the gigantic rock in Richard's satellite view above, where it lies between 102 and 101. If it blocks the view at all, it does so for 101 only. That big rock is pretty fun to scramble up for a great view of the Window while sitting on top.

Giving a heads up to friends here on BBC that due to a family crisis, I will be cancelling my reservation to Cabin 101 (Pet Friendly) for the upcoming 3 day Memorial Day Weekend..... So check the Chisos Mountain Lodge website Tuesday morning (05/20) and you may be able to score the cabin.   I am very disappointed that DH & I have to cancel. Hopefully someone here that loves Big Bend like we do will be able to make the trip and give us a great trip report.  Hopefully someday in the future, someone else may give us the same break. 
Good luck and have a great time if you are so lucky to be heading to Big Bend soon.

Ah.... yep, sorry. My mistake. The cabin that does NOT have a direct view of The Window is #101.

I dug back to my original trip report:

http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/members-only-photos-and-reports/third-time%27s-a-charm-trip-report-%28sept-5-8%29/

So, 101 is really nice due to the heavy shade it gets in the late afternoon. Keep that in mind if you go in the summer. There's no AC.

If you walk out the back door of 101 (heading north), take a left turn and walk up to the boulder that sits parked between 101 & 102, and then climb that boulder (not difficult), the views from the top are really nice and you see the Window in its full glory.

The VIP cabin is apparently now available for reservations, on a limited basis.

only room on our property with satellite TV.


I remember when they put the sat tv in. I was not happy... they closed the north window on the cable and I couldn't open the window for cross ventilation. I don't go to BiBe to watch a stupid television and in the summer that cross breeze through the window is necessary.


I've stayed there a few times. It's a nice cabin... tad pricey though

I'm guessing that it can only be reserved by phone, as it didn't show up as available for any of the nights of the dates listed on https://reservations.foreverresorts.com/ReservationCalendar.do?propertyKey=73#

Or maybe I should have read the disclaimer.  :icon_rolleyes:

I always just call the front desk and ask if it is available. I do that for any reservation.
