Perfect. Honestly, this place was absolutely perfect! We visited in the first cold front of November, so Emma had swapped out the AC for the heater when we arrived. Everything had printed instructions so we could settle in ourselves. The beds are incredibly comfortable, there is ample seating inside and out, plenty of places to stash your belongings for a longer stay. The en suite bathroom is a game changer in cold weather, and the tiny space heater in there made showering a truly pleasant experience after a long day at Big Bend. The toiletries were provided so we didn't have to pack as much nonsense. There are thoughtful snacks and drinks laid out, a decent sized mini fridge, a phenomenal propane grill and an easy but effective hot plate for cooking outside! Plenty of plates, utensils, cookware & seasoning. Stop by the Porters in town to stock up on any food you need. Emma even cooked us a full, delicious meal! The property is right off the road in Alpine so it's easy to get to and convenient for travel, but looking outside the front door you wouldn't know how close to town you really are. The birds and roosters sing you awake, and the coyotes sing you to sleep. The light from Alpine only dampens the dark sky a bit, you can still see the Milky Way and so much of our beautiful galaxy! Sunsets are unmatched. They dip below the mountains straight outside your front door, where there's a comfy couch and 100sqfr blanket for warm stargazing. 15/10, will be returning soon!

The perfect base for Aussies exploring Far West Texas! Emma has thought of everything you might need to stay in the region - whether relaxing with a record playing watching the sun go down, or providing tips for where to eat in town! Not only was the tent cute and cosy- Emma’s service goes above and beyond. We actually could not have done it without her- she provided us with assistance when our train was delayed into the early hours. Thank you Emma- and for anyone looking to book, you won’t be disappointed!!!

Our stay was delightful. The campsite was a nice reprieve from the heat and a good place to wash up and relax after doing so more primitive camping before. We were only there for a night, and we were extremely exhausted so we didn’t take advantage of all of the opportunities provided by the host, but I’m sure if we had it would have been lovely. The environment was cozy, and it allowed for a great hand and some wonderful stargazing.

Wonderful Glamping Experience
I loved staying in Emma’s glamping tent. Nights were chilly when we were there but there is a heater AND bed heaters (amazing)! They have thought of everything from all the bathroom necessities, to cooking/eating necessities, even house personal shoes to wear in the tent. The place is decorated so thoughtfully with very cool personal “West Texas” touches. My favorite part was having coffee on the front porch, looking out over the landscape & mountains in the distance. (Emma or her husband would deliver coffee each morning - but there is also a hot water kettle to make your own, if you prefer that!) I can’t say enough about this place. Loved it and can’t wait to stay there again in the future!

Emma is a national treasure
The glamping experience you want is right here on this property. The bathroom and utilities are everything you need and the tent itself was such a beautiful and unique experience. Everything is thought out and Emma is one of the nicest and most helpful hosts I’ve ever experienced. Her customer service was extraordinary and a highlight of our stay. I do recommending getting there during the day to check in but overall we loved the tent and Emma even more amazing

Our first glamping experience on the Historic Ranch was absolutely a wonderful experience. Even better was the host, Emma, who greeted us upon entering. Emma was available for any questions and had many suggestions from eating locations to local and regional entertainment. We look forward to recommending Emma’s place to all our family and friends. We will be back to Glamp on the Historic Ramch hopefully soon. - Elizabeth & Greg
