Interaction with guests
Happy to spend as much or as little time offering advise on area as they desire.
Other things to note
This is a remote location very safe and picture perfect. You do need high clearance vehicle to take pinto canyon road 2810 route south from Marfa or to Ruidosa the right or west for 4.5 miles house is on the right box 12481. Take note the drive down pinto canyon is worth the extra cost of larger high clearance vehicle if your renting but we do not advise taking it at night no danger it's just nerve racking and the point is the views. Otherwise the drive is a state highway all paved From Marfa take 67 to Presidio then 37 miles west on Farm road 170 to small town of Ruidosa proceed 4.5 miles to sign saying MARFA LAND and CATTLE CO. On your right. The river road is a great drive out most likely will see game and roaming cattle and horses and native inhabitants. You can book day use of a pool in Ruidosa as well hikes, river rafting, Jeep tours thru. Angell Expeditions(URL HIDDEN)WE DO NOT RECOMMEND DRIVING PINTO CANYON ROAD AT NIGHT )
Be nice. We also ask that due to the remote location you please take your trash with you. Both Presidio and Marfa have large community dumpsters on most ever street so it's very simple to drop it on the way out. Thank you kindly.
