*please note, the 2 miles or so of gravel road leading up to the Ten Bits Ranch can be a little bumpy, but doable for the experienced rider on a conventional motorcycle, and most certainly on an adventure style bike.

As you approach Ten Bits Ranch Bed and Breakfast on a dusty road that bumps and swerves through slanted hills and cliffs, the beaten path tapers away and it becomes apparent that you’re venturing into the remote badlands of the Chihuahuan Desert. There really isn’t a better way to experience the Big Bend Area. And if you’re seeking wonderful Terlingua lodging, Ten Bits Ranch is your most authentic option!

Themed around the old west town of “Chimney Rock,” Ten Bits Ranch provides lodging for up to 18 guests. Each guest room is designed to be a part of the old west town so your Terlingua lodging may include a stay in the Bank (two queen beds), Gun Shop (one queen bed), Schoolhouse (one queen bed), or General Store (two queen beds, handicapped accessible). All guest rooms have plenty of space, a private bath, spacious covered porch, air conditioning, flat screen TV with Dish Network service and gas log fireplace. Wifi is available in each guest room and in the Cantina. Guests have access to United States phone calling in the Cantina and Verizon cell coverage on the Ranch.

New additions are Delmonico’s Steakhouse, Texas Hattery, Ten Bits Gazette and Courthouse. Each of these new rooms has 2 king beds, a private bath, mini-fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, A/C, Wireless and satellite TV. Each room also offers a private porch with comfy rocking chairs for our guests. The views are breathtaking! Guests can also enjoy new fire rings under the stars at the new rooms.

Ten Bits Ranch is located 20 minutes North of The Big Bend National Park west entrance. Also within easy driving distance are Big Bend Ranch State Park and the annual Terlingua Chili Cook-Off, (held in November). Nearby are also the Historic Terlingua Ghost Town and conveniences such as fuel, groceries, banking and postal facilities in Study Butte, located 15-20 minutes from Ten Bits Ranch. Other regional attractions include the town of Alpine, Sul Ross University, McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis historic site, and the Marfa Mystery Lights.

All these wonderful sites are within 1.5 hours from the Ranch. The nearest official U.S./Mexico border crossing – at the town of Presidio – is only an hour’s drive away along State Highway 170, considered to be the most scenic route in Texas. The smallest and most interesting border crossing is Boquillas, just inside the Big Bend National Park.
