Guadalupe Peak, an ancient ocean reef, and the highest point in Texas, rises sharply to the east. Laura is a local, and knows all the hidden gems to visit in this remote place of wide open spaces. Her properties are lovingly restored, and the perfect respite from the Chihuahuan Desert and surrounding mountain ranges.

What a lovely room. Very quite and comfortable. The patio outside overlooking the Guadalupe Mountain is breathtaking.

Wonderful desert oasis to stay at for work or pleasure...great location relative to National Parks, El Paso, and Carlsbad.

Laura's location in Dell City is perfect for hiking Guadalupe Mountains National Park. It’s a 45-60 minute drive to Pine Springs or McKittrick Canyon Visitor Centers/trailheads, but the drive to/from is a scenic view of El Capitan and Guadalupe Peak, which is awesome to experience at different times of the day (sunrise, sunset, afternoon, etc.) and never gets old. Since camping in the park campgrounds cannot be reserved, is first come, first serve, and may have nothing available when you arrive, you can’t do better than Laura’s places in Dell City for hiking Guadalupe Peak out of Pine Springs. Dell City is a quiet farming community – very relaxing and refreshing after a day of hiking, with views of the mountains for sunrise/sunset off the porch. You can’t get a better host than Laura, who went well out of her way to check in on us and make sure we had everything we needed. Our room was very well decorated, relaxing, and made a nice romantic getaway for my wife and I. The locals in Dell City will know you’re from out of town and likely staying at one of Laura’s places, so they are also very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. AT&T cell phone service works, but not much else. Plan your food out in advance, as many restaurants are not open in the evenings except on certain nights of the week, and none may ever be open past 6:00 pm. When all else fails, there is still a grocery store in town with surprisingly good fresh made pizza and hot subs.

Laura's place/location gives an experience that is quite unique to the vacationing public: a small very rural authentic farm community. It felt miles away from Guadalupe Mountains NP and Carlsbad Caverns NP. We enjoyed meeting the locals at Seven Angels restaurant. Laura's place is functional, a place to come home to after a day of sightseeing.

Response from Laura:
Hello Joe, as disappointing as it was to read your review, I will be adding another lamp. I have several properties on airbnb that DO have fully stocked Kitchens. Those cost a bit more and you elected to rent the most economical of the lodgings, advertised on the site with no kitchen. Also listed on the site is the mileage to each park. The last time I checked, the park entrances or the mountain has not moved! Being unsure of the roles of others in the little colorful Mexican Pueblito..... well they are renters, just like you. Btw, thats porcelain tile, not concrete floor. Corkscrew was in frig. Coffee mugs in cabinet.

Dell City is a small agricultural community with few amenities. Fill up on gas and don't expect restaurants to be open.

Our stay here was quiet and lovely. Laura is a generous and kind host. The room was charming and just right for a romantic getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our few day stay while exploring the local parks. :)

I grew up on a ranch in the vicinity of my properties and went away for many years. When I came home I decided to refurbish the oldest buildings I could buy and do something for the tidy up of the community at the same time. It has been rewarding to create a calm, livable space out of almost ruin. I plan to continue to refurbish and remodel in the community for years to come.
