The Star Gazer's Inn is exactly what the name suggest. We provide a telescope but you are more than welcome to bring one of your own. The night sky is out of this world. We are located approximately 18 miles from Alpine. We are 5 miles off the highway on a rough dirt road. The house is a 137 year old Hacienda with beautiful adobe walls and 15 feet high ceilings.Although the ranch house is very unique and deserves to be viewed in its beauty itself, we do provide WiFi so just in case if you will be bringing over some of your younger children do not worry! We are surrounded by huge oak trees. There are two screened in porches. The house includes kitchen, dining room, living room, library, four bedrooms and two bathrooms . The house is full of antiques. That is why I have Security Cameras in the common areas only. These are set up for my protection as well as my guest. The main part of the house was built in 1880 , because of that, and also to preserve the uniqueness of the property everything is almost like it was in the 1880s. I do have electricity and running water but the living room and library are heated with fireplaces. The bedrooms have gas heaters for the winter and fans for the summer. The bathrooms do have showers and full baths. On occasion the electricity will go off because of the remoteness of the place. When the electricity goes off we have solar lanterns and gallon water jugs set up.
This home is an old beautiful historical place and needs to be preserved as such. I would really prefer guest that appreciate the singularity of my house. I welcome campers or people that don't mind a little ruggedness. Although to me, the house is like being in a little part of paradise.
