For large groups, the Cafe has two rooms with an archway separation.  It comes equipped with 17 square tables seating four, one octagon table seating eight, one six-foot table and one eight-foot table.  There are a total of 66 matching chairs.  A hot and cold buffet table is available and sack lunches can also be arranged.

The Cafe and Bunkhouse building are the original Ranch structure, made of stone and masonry, and dubbed the Whitehouse (Whitehouse Mountain sits just behind it).  The house was upstairs and the basement was for animals and stock.  Later the house became the real estate office and the downstairs was made into a bunkhouse for hunters.

 

Cafe Patio


Terlingua Ranch Lodge Cafe Patio

The Cafe Patio is a beautiful stone patio. It's a great spot to check your email, drink a cold one, have a picnic and enjoy the view.  It adjoins the Cafe and the horseshoe pit.

There is a stage, picnic tables and a large BBQ grill for any sized event: weddings, family reunions, anniversary and birthday parties.  Electric outlets are available for bands and stage lights are already installed.  There is ample parking and also handicapped parking spaces.  The pool and cabana with firepit are just a few steps away.  The Bunkhouse event room is downstairs from the Cafe.  Our cold storage locker is also adjoining for an old-fashioned pig roast or fiesta.  For patio reservations contact the office.
