McGonagill House offers one of largest, if not the largest, homes available in Marathon; two of the 3 beds are kings. Please enjoy our local ranching family's historic 3BR/2B family home, built in the 1940's by the owner's local ranching family, and owned by their descendants. It is a curious mixture of the historic and the new, creating a peaceful spot with lots of room for privacy.

IMPORTANT: Local Brewster County tax (7%) is not collected by Airbnb and will be collected upon guest arrival.

The house was charming. We were in the area to see Big Bend National Park and Marfa. The house was the perfect location to give us access to both. It was furnished with everything we needed and was very comfortable. Check in and out was easy. Would love to stay again.
