Would stay again. Clean, restored house. We slept 7. it was a bit tight, but all things considered, we were extremely happy. This house has character!

Bottle House was a fantastic place to land and settle into as we explored Marfa and Alpine. The house itself is wonderful, as Liz has created a very comfortable space with a mix of artistry intermingled with the practical. Little touches like the painted box filled with earplugs, ground coffee in the kitchen, and a range of color throughout the house in the form of wall art, pillows and bedspreads, made the place perfect for a good night's sleep and for lounging around after a long day of walking. All thumbs up! If I get to this part of Texas again, I'll be sure to look up Liz and plan a stay in Bottle House.
The Historic Bottle House is an extremely comfortable, spacious and artistically decorated 3 bedroom (4 bed) BnB right downtown within walking distance of everything. After a long trip, it was a relief (and a delight) to be able to safely park the car outside the front door and access all of Alpine on foot. The kitchen lent itself to full meal preparations - fully stocked, with thoughtful items such as teas and organic agave syrup. The hair dryer and curling iron were nice homey touches I enjoyed aswell as the "natural lit alcove" with makeup mirror, makeup remover and Q-tips provided.
The art is wonderful - each room worth really investigating. Much of it very whimsical.
The backyard is huge - fenced in - with a wonderful shaded porch with outdoor dining room table and 4 chairs. The hanging tumbleweed next to the painted golden deer rack on the porch - lit at night - is a lovely touch!
The train rumbles through several times a day but did not present any problems for me. I used the sanitary individually wrapped earplugs and slept like a baby.
Murphy Street is a wonderful historic area undergoing a lot of artistic and commercial renovation. There are 2 Mexican restaurants within a few hundred feet of the Bottle House with delicious food and art galleries, movie house, other hotels within a block or two.
We had a great time in Alpine, Texas on Valentine's weekend. We were lucky enough to be the first couple to stay in the Bottle House. It was comfortably furnished and nicely decorated with interesting art (check out the Butch Hancock art). Although earplugs were provided we enjoyed listening to the trains. Everything seemed to be within walking distance even the Saturday's Farmer's Market. Wished we could have stayed longer and are looking forward to coming back.
