Y’All Get Ready For A Good Ol’ Time
Home of football as a religion and barbecue as a food group, Texas has reason to boast everything being bigger in the largest American state. From live music and indie cafes in Austin to the Dallas Cowboys and the famous Fort Worth stockyards in North Texas, the mega-state has something to offer to everyone. Try floating the river, gallivanting on Galveston beaches, or hiking through the impeccable Texas Hill Country.
Comfort, Texas / North of San Antonio
Roughly equidistant from Austin and San Antonio, in the Hill Country of central Texas, the town* of Comfort does its level best to live up to its name. In fact it just might be the coziest little Census Designated Place we’ve ever driven through. With the advent of Camp Comfort, however, there’s an excellent reason to stop for a while.
This former bowling alley was established in 1901, which we’d have thought was before bowling was really a thing; thus it’s spared the utilitarian strip-mall style of the typical mid-century bowling alley, opting for something a bit more rustic and hand-made. Today they call it a “boutique bed and breakfast,” and they do not misspeak. Finely weathered wood is everywhere, brought to life by some colorful modern furniture, and while you wouldn’t mistake it for the Four Seasons, the accommodations are perfectly comfortable, and quite large, to boot.

Terlingua, Texas / Big Bend National Park
Just a little bit of the Amangiri in West Texas.
Willow House is a desert retreat located 6 miles from Big Bend National Park and just outside the center of Terlingua, Texas. A place to stay and unwind while taking in unobstructed views of the Chisos Mountain Range. Our communal style of hospitality allows you to cook, mix a cocktail, and meet new people in the Main House while also enjoying your own private accommodations.
Willow House is a twelve casita desert retreat on over 250 acres of private land. With unobstructed views of the Chisos Mountain Range, it is the perfect location to relax and unwind in Far West Texas. Its close proximity to Big Bend National Park allows guests easy access to the Rio Grande River, Chisos Basin hikes, and everything else the area has to offer. If you are not much of a chef, there are several restaurants within a 3 mile radius that are open for dinner 7 days a week. If you enjoy cooking, the communal Main House has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Whatever your style while traveling, we built the space to be versatile. We encourage our guests to take a sunset cruise around the property, stargaze around the fire at night, mix a cocktail, and hopefully meet a few new friends along the way. The space is well suited for entire group events as well- serving as a serene setting for a wedding, milestone birthday or company retreat.
