Terlingua chic, the Candililla House is great for either couples or families. Perched on a hillside, it offers an everchanging view of sunsets, starlight, and thunderstorms. There is a patio outside the walls and another within.
The Candelilla House gets its name from the local cactus that was gathered by the locals and used in the manufacture of women's makeup products. The owners' family operated both a trading post and a processing facillity that kept this Mexican tradition alive.
You'll be the envy of all the local ghosts when you check-in to the Candellilla House. There are two charming bedrooms, plus a cozy alcove with a futon, and a variety of liviing spaces. The private road leads you to desert life with a view of the desert, mountains, and everchanging sky.
Rollaway Beds are available for an additional $20/day.
The Candelilla House is right in the middle of the Ghost Town, so the neighbors are long gone and you won't be disturbing anyone with a little partying. Or take a stroll down to one of the neighborhood hangouts for dinner or drinks. You'll meet someone surprising every day.
The kitchen is simple and functional, but you're in easy walking distance to the best restaurant in the Big Bend.
We do have indoor plumbing, but it's a few steps away in a secluded, relaxing private retreat..
A few steps up the hillside, you'll find an extremely private shower.
