The Great Room

Almost "Historically Correct" - except that the Gatling Gun is gone

Center view of the Great Room.


The Great Room is where our guests have The Great Parties.

This special room is available to all guests of the Perry Mansion.

There's bluetooth to broadcast your music through built-in speakers indoors and out, and things usually start up around The Great Bar -- day or night.


Just outside The Great Room is "The Star Balcony."

This is where we provide a stunning 24-hour panorama of nature, including mountain and desert views, sunrises and sunsets, as well as the occasional magnificent thunderstorm. Feel free to sing.

Our night sky is particularly dark, among the darkest in the U.S., and therefore we can provide a few extra gazillions of stars for you to watch (but don't touch).

UFO sightings are optional.

There are many, many electrical outlets for your laptop (even though any type of actual "work" is discouraged).

And there is WiFi service, although there are rumors that our IT guy is actually a ghost. This is not true. There are absolutely no ghosts in the Perry Mansion because all ghosts are relegated to the nearby Terlingua Cemetery.

There may be some evidence, however, that he could be a poltergeist.

By the way, the wooden crown molding in The Great Room was hand carved by assorted members of the Bill Ivey family.

We provide a complimentary view of the Chisos Mountains that is unparalleled and always changing, both day and night.

The Paisley-ish toilet.

And, in the best Terlingua style, we offer our guests "The Great Bathroom."

It features a vaulted ceiling and an intriguing paisley-ish toilet that is so fascinating it makes it hard to watch what you're doing.

Be careful.

The kitchen.

Just below, you'll find The Great Kitchen, which is available for all guests..

It is a complete and modern indoor kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, gas range, microwave, coffee maker, sink, and dishwasher.

Bring your own vittles.

Door of the Utility Elevator.

A small utility elevator is available to whisk your meals up from the kitchen at glacial speeds.

The elevator shaft was conveniently built over a secret escape tunnel (now filled) that Howard Perry had created.

Please note: this elevator is in no way safe for humans to ride. That includes you and all your progeny.

There is also a magnificent outdoor kitchen, complete with mountains, sky, and fresh air.
