Terlingua – official website
Want to take in the night sky from the comfort of your own luxury space? Then Basecamp Terlingua is the West Texas spot for you. While many of the other properties listed on this blog have unique luxury appeal, Basecamp Terlingua is unique in offering 1 and 2-bed “bubbles” that bring luxury and convenience face-to-face with the majesty of the open sky near Big Bend.
Feel like the bubble concept might not be for you? Don’t worry! They also have casitas, tipis, lotus tents, and campsites. Travel blogger Karaboutlife gave these notes on her experience staying in one of the tipis at Basecamp Terlingua:
“Located just 8-miles outside of the northwestern entrance to Big Bend, the site of six teepees, a bath bathhouse, two adobe-style, and two bubble houses blended seamlessly with the desert landscape. Having not viewed the photos posted on Airbnb, I was blown away upon entering the teepee. It was bright, spacious, and luxurious and had a southwestern/boho style that looked straight from Pinterest! The room featured a king-size bed, nightstands with lamps, a sofa bed, chairs, a kitchenette, an evaporative cooler and heater, and wifi. …Overall, I would rate Basecamp Terlingua 9.5/10 stars and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay near Big Bend.”
If you’re looking for the raw beauty of the desert landscape around Big Bend but aren’t interested in the “roughin’ it” style of camping that many in the area opt for, Basecamp Terlingua seems like it’s right up your alley.
