This unique boutique motel has gone through as many changes as the Ghostt own itself. It used to hail to Bikers, Bar Brawlers, and Gypsies passing thru looking for fun and leaving a wake of trouble in their stead. NOW those guys have moved on to other more remote areas and the Ghost town is full of Nature-seeking groups, family vacations, hikers, adventurers, geographers, scientists, retired veterans, and people trying to find the antithesis of city.
Located at the Entrance to the Terlingua Ghost town and ON-THE-GRID (which is only available within a certain radius of the Ghost town). That means we pay top dollar to offer you and your family or group running water that is purified through the Ghost town Reverse Osmosis System & Electricity that comes from 300 miles away. We also have a back-up generator, if the power goes out (which can last for a few hours or a few weeks!). Furthermore, we have the absolute best views of the iconic Chisos Mountain Range from the Restaurant on site. The High Sierra Bar and Grill serves food from Noon-10pm, vegan and vegetarian options available as well as the widest variety of micro beers, Mexican beers and domestic flavors from all over Texas. We are the only bar intown that serves Agave Wine and we make the best ranch waters and margaritas with it...while maintaining safe family fun atmosphere. Live music on and off throughout the week, esp. on the weekends or during events. Streaming Satellite TV upstairs at High Sierra has every sports channel! First come first serve...or arm wrestle over it.
Important Area Wide Disclaimer NOTE****Wifi and Satellite TV connections do not always function (as we would like for them to) and we do not guarantee those services nor give refunds if they don't work! Our internet is about 10 years in the modern past so when there are many new high-tech devices attempting to stream on a 10 year old internet system, it simply doesn't work. That said, the Satellite TV system solely dedicated to the Bar upstairs receives every channel! First come first serve.
***Also, prepare for you cell phones to not function properly, this area really is far away from modern amenities and it is extremely expensive to get anything out here, electricity, water, cell service, fuel, foods... there are a few shops that pop up and recede back into the desert just as quickly as they came... We will send you updated lists of current shops to procure needed products from but we also have a Shop on site at the High Sierra that sells much needed and oft forgotten items, link to said shop is on the website tabs at top-- Big Bend Camping Supply Co. There are no pharmacies or fast-food restaurants here. Also, employees are on short supply as there is no housing available with the rise of Airbnb's, so here in the Ghost town, we operate with a real skeleton crew, please allow for slightly delayed but dedicated service! We want your business!
The Hotel itself is built with adobe brick by brick, 18 years ago, by owner and one of the West's last authentic bounty hunters, Herman Everett (featured on a few Italian produced movies as well as the TV series Badlands and Gas Monkey Garage. The Hotel and Bar are reminiscent of a Clint Eastwood movie and the local clientele & unending vistas are unforgettable.
Conveniently located inbetween both the Big Bend National Park & the Big Bend State Park, our Dark Skies hotel will sweep you into the charm and excitements of the old West in the Terlingua Ghostown!
Dine at one of our neighborhood’s renowned restaurants, enjoy fresh-squeezed beers from one of the colorful bar stools
along the Saltillo tiled floors, and don’t miss live Singer-Songwriter flare-ups in one of the local bars
...Great Family Fun until 10pm... then a party can break out at any time!
