Overview

About the property

The Long Yellow Trailer is a vibrantly decorated and fully remodeled mid-century modern caravan located on the edge of the famous Terlingua Ghost Town. Close enough to enjoy all the excitement, entertainment, art, atmosphere, dining, and drinking opportunities of the Ghost Town. Just far enough away for privacy and solitude.

Decorated with bright colors, local art, and stylish furnishings, the Long Yellow Trailer is a happy home away from home for travelers from Texas, across the continent, or across the oceans. It’s a great home base when visiting the Ghost Town, the River, the Big Bend parks, or other local attractions. Unlike a cheap hotel, or run down rental, the Long Yellow Trailer will be a big hit on your favorite social media site or personal blog.

With a cozy full size bed nook plus a folding couch in the sitting area the Long Yellow Trailer can comfortably sleep two or three people. Brand new modern bathroom with large shower, basin sink, and unlimited hot water. Elegant kitchenette with ample counter space, toaster oven, microwave, coffeemaker, electric kettle, hot plate and more. Convenient and comfortable place to rest and relax after adventurous days or crazy nights. Fabulous views of the Chisos Mountains and Mule Ears Peaks.

Plenty of privacy while just an easy five-minute walk to heart of the Terlingua Ghost Town. A short drive to Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, the Rio Grande River, or Lajitas.

You’ll want to come back again and again. We’ll be delighted to have you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Janet was a great host. She was very quick to respond right at arrival. The place is nice and isolated. It is a trailer so there weren't any doors for the restroom, so plan your travel buddy accordingly. The shower was small but adequate providing a warm shower most of the time which was very doable. The bed was very comfy which was extremely important after exploring Big Bend. The AC unit by the bed was perfect during our stay. The best parts were the layers upon layers of stars you're able to see from the place, how close it was to the main sights of Terlingua and how easy it was to visit Big Bend. It was a great experience staying here and I would stay here again.

GREAT property for Big Bend

  • 4 of 5

Property was just the ticket for enjoying everything this area has to offer. Very close to paved road - short dirt entry road/drive to trailer, 0.1mile. Close to both the National and State Parks, and to all areas of Study Butte, Terlingua and Lajitas. Property was very clean and had everything I needed. Would definitely rent again.

Perfect location for enjoying BBNP!

  • 4 of 5

Close to dining, gas stations, excursions, etc and good wifi! It had everything we needed to enjoy a 3 day trip to Big Bend. We enjoyed sunrise and star gazing from the outdoor seating. The owner even stopped by to see if there was anything else we needed.

Clean, Convenient and Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Long Yellow Trailer—it was so close to Big Bend, and to the Terlingua Porch. It was really comfortable, cute and very clean. We will be back!

Wonderful Property in a Cool Place

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views, especially the stars at night! Comfortable and well equipped, great communications from the owners, with a great bar in easy (well for through the desert!) walking distance.

Exactly as advertised, quaint and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 day stay in Terlingua. We were hiking in Big Bend and this location is very close to the park and provides easy access. Area is quiet and we rarely heard anyone except bird songs. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes and we made meals using microwave and toaster oven. Bathroom is very nice with a roomy shower. If you are looking for affordable, clean and simple stay near Big Bend, this is your place. Janet was very easy to work with! We had a magical time in this rural part of Texas.
