Terlingua Ranch Lodge offers unique Big Bend activities and entertainment.

“The rooms are rustic and very clean with air conditioning and a hot shower which was a blessing. The quiet evening on the deck with wine and my honey was perfect.”–Sodaw K.

Terlingua Ranch Lodge resort is a remote West Texas Big Bend retreat offering recreational as well as relaxing activities such as swimming, horseshoes, stargazing and live music entertainment.

Swimming

Spend your morning hiking or biking through Terlingua Ranch trails, then take a cool dip and lounge by our pool. It’s open from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily and free for all paying lodge guests. Otherwise there’s a $25.00 annual pass for POATRI members in good standing or a $5.00 charge per day per vehicle for all others.

Stargazing

Our Chihuahuan Desert offers some of the most unobstructed views ▶️ in the Texas sky. You can set up a telescope outside your room and be assured that city lights will not interfere with your viewing. As one of our guests commented at TripAdvisor.com, “The view of the sky at night is unencumbered and unbelievable with occasional meteor showers and the Milky Way spread from horizon to horizon.”

Music

There is usually music scheduled at our Bad Rabbit Cafe on weekend nights all year round and nightly during Spring Break. For information or booking please call 432-371-2244. Tips are appreciated!
