About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Best view of the desert sunsets in all of Marfa! See where the parties are gathering and the city wind down from the comfort of the private porch at the Hill House. We have beautifully art-scaped landscape that blooms all summer and into fall!

There are seating areas throughout the property to eat and entertain.

The Marfa House on the Hill is an exquisitely updated, turn-of-the-century adobe home offering the best sunset vistas of Marfa and the surrounding arid landscape. The home's amenities include a full kitchen, large bathroom, outdoor shower, lovely indoor kiva fireplace, and a seating area in the lush garden grounds with a fire pit.

Damage to the property, including but not limited to guest rooms, fixtures, furnishings, artwork, décor or linens, will result in the guest being charged.

About Robert Bellamy

I own a landscape design company in Dallas, TX where I have lived my entire life. As an artist, I was drawn to Marfa because there is always something interesting and educational or musical going on in town. Being in the high desert it's warm and dry during the day...crisp and cool at night. I try to get to Marfa at least once a month.

Robert Bellamy purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

The Hill House is the only property of this kind with a panoramic view of the city of Marfa and the surrounding mountains. You can see storms coming in from 80 miles away!

One of a kind comfortable, clean, comfortable home. Perfect for 4-6 adults. Eclectic art

  • 5 of 5

While there are 2 very nice downtown hotels Hill House is perfect location, unique and fun with great patios and vistas. So many beautiful and quirky art works and furniture and other touches. Everything one needs in the kitchen for cooking, entertaining and the bathroom. Great towels. There is only 1 shower ( indoor) for all guests. A shower is outside too if weather permits. The house is located right off the highway and across street from busy rail traffic- and neighbors have Roosters! However once Windows are closed no noise and after night or 2 dont hear a thing. No television which we loved and great local radio station with no commercials and every song different era, type, beat. Perfect. Hope to visit again

Great location, perfect for long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend at the House on the Hill for an annual girls trip, and everything was great! The location is perfect for walking everywhere in Marfa. The amenities were as described, and the house and its contents were very clean. Everyone had a comfortable sleeping space, and a few brave souls enjoyed the outdoor shower. We made a day trip to Big Bend National Park, and dinner in Terlingua. I would not recommend the house for families with children - there are lots of steps outside that line the beautiful landscape. It was a perfect setting for our group - would definitely recommend to friends looking for a west Texas get-away.

Beautiful, luxurious, cozy with great outdoor space and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all.

We could not have wished for better in Marfa.

The owner and house keeper were incredibly helpful.

It was freezing when we were there, so we couldn't enjoy the beautiful garden, which would be amazing in warmer weather.

My only suggestion would be: get some professional photos taken - these ones just don't do that house justice!

Magical mornings in the desert

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! The photos do not do this place justice, it's so much more beautiful in person! We loved our stay here and hope to return in the near future or maybe even yearly! Everyone we met was warm and welcoming! Any time we mentioned we were staying at the Hill House, we always got an enthusiastic response. It seems like the place to be, and for staying during such a busy weekend, we sure lucked out! We spent a lot of time in the lush garden downstairs which was always full of butterflies. We love everything about this place, it all felt so magical. The sunsets from the patio are amazing, the furniture and art is tastefully chosen, and all the living areas are comfortable and welcoming. We even met with some of the artists in person during the Chinati Weekend! It was a pleasure to come back to the home and view the work in a different light.

Thank you so much for having us!
