Let me see if I understand this now: 67 people read my post and there are 0 comments and replies! Now why is that? I have asked a valid question that I've been wondering about. What is the big secret? Surely someone knows what is being done with the Mansion! Any takers?

Time to say Gracias y Adios, dear Amigos! Due to upcoming maintenance and remodeling on this Old Rock Pile, Upstairs at the Mansion is closing it's doors May 15, 2012. The owner of the building, will be re-opening a guest facility here at the mansion sometime in the future. So, if you wish to experience historic simplicity among the ruins before the remodel project, send me a note and lets get you one of the few remaining reservations to be had in the Mansion ruin as we know it. I would like to say a Big Thank You you to all the wonderful guests and friends of the Mansion who have made the last four years so especially memorable for me. Gracias Amigos!
I think the intent of the accommodations might be misunderstood. The structure by large is not in 'horrible' condition, but then the intent is not to provide upscale resort-like accommodations, either. The intent is to reproduce the local ambiance and provide comfortable accommodations while retaining the 'feel' of the 'ghost town'. It was originally, afterall, a mining town. The Chisos Mining Company breathed life into this little spot of hot desert and Perry's Mansion was the odd-ball of the frontier town.The radio center has been relocated elsewhere and the arched patio nicely cleaned. It is a wonderful spot to relax and view the hub-bub of the store area and the Chisos Mnts. beyond. The renovated rooms (and there are now more than two) are quaint and comfortable, matching the friendly hospitality while still providing a rustic feel. The decor lends a quiet and smooth southwest ambiance and the bathroom is modern. If you wish for luxurious modern and pristine comforts, you might consider the resort at Lajitas instead.
