I have to be honest here. This is going to come as a shock but I have NEVER been to Marfa. It’s a hole in my Texas Travel education and honestly my heart aches a little every time I think about it. I’m going. This year. I’m an artist and a Texan through and through (we’re quite proud). I envision Marfa as the perfect place to soak up true wonderful artful peace (almost like Santa Fe) in a beautiful Texas setting under the stars – I was made to go to Marfa. And I haven’t been. Shameful. That said, in the spirit of Marfa week I’m filling you in on my ideal Marfa vacay. Lucky for me almost every friend I have HAS been there so I feel like I’ve got a pretty good handle on the scoop but always open for suggestions!
See the info after the jump. Marfa 2012. You heard it here first.
- El Cosmico – Liz Lambert’s trailer, tepee, yurt oasis. I love ANYTHING Liz Lambert touches so I would have to stay here at least one night.
- The Thunderbird – Revamped motorcourt with a minimal aesthetic
- Cibolo Creek Ranch – I am a sucker for a little luxury and for years I’ve been hearing about Cibolo Creek. It sits about 30 minutes South of Marfa. We’ll definitely soak up a little peace and quiet there for a night or two.
