Mel's place was way beyond what we expected. The location was beautiful, the cabin was thoughtfully designed to be comfortable with everything we needed. Mel was helpful and accommodating. We loved sitting on the swing and looking at the stars at night and drinking our morning coffee with a view of the mountains. At the end of a long day hiking in the hot sun in Big Bend, the shower was heaven. If you're looking to explore the park and enjoy the nature of the area, Mel's place is the perfect combination of the peacefulness of camping and the comfort of a hotel.
