My hubby and I stayed here after 5 days of camping and it was 100% splendid. As a plant person I was overwhelmed by the extraordinary gardens- Roses were almost as big as my head and Bougainvilla towered over us! The room was clean, comfortable, and had a personal bathroom with Amazing water pressure** The room was beautifully decorated, you...

We stayed at Eve's Garden for one night in mid November. We loved everything about it - the owners were super friendly, informative, and hospitable (after our long ride from Austin we were immediately greeted with an intro to the coffee/tea/keg room and greeted with a beer), the colors and decorations of the courtyard and our room were so charming...

The place is intriguing and the owner with her family help are amazing. Each room is unique in its own way. The greenhouse courtyard that is the entry to every room is just fabulous and gorgeous. Rooms are cozy and clean. The location for this town is great cause you are set off the main road enough the train gets...

Eve's is a mecca or sorts. Though its in the high West Texas desert, its an unlikely refuge on the literal edge of town. Once you're there you'll see its 'backyard' is basically the entire rest of the desert. The food is astounding...fresh, creative and healthy. The entire place is made of papercrete and looks like a colorful moroccan village...

This place is amazing!! There are a lot of different rooms and everything is uniquely decorated. There is a draft-beer system for every guest to enjoy and the a lot of really cool common areas. The rooms are equally perfect! Really clean and well put together. Breakfast was really good too. I would definitely recommend this unique place!

If you have a gypsy spirit this place is for you. Technicolor is the best way to describe the decor. The breakfast was outstanding, but wasn't served until 9, which is pretty late if you're driving in to Big Bend.

Stumbled upon this place when traveling to Big Bend with my dad. The place itself is unique and colorful and somewhat castle inspired with its rounded doorways. I really enjoyed all of the beautiful art and the greenhouse/garden in the common area. The Breakfast was incredible and healthy! Really wouldn't mind getting a cook book from this chef!

Unusual B&B. Much of it built by the owners. Pretty indoor gardens, a lap pool. Unusual and pretty rooms. The food was outstanding. Complimentary snacks, coffee, beer. Owners very nice. Not a lot to do in Marathon, but a relatively short drive to other attractions in the area.

I had the good fortune to stay at Eve's Garden for a month recuperating on crutches from an injury. In that time period I got to meet all of the guests who traveled through and got to share in their enjoyment of Kate, Alaine and Noble's unique and marvelous creation. Having lived on ranches in the Big Bend for 28...

So we ended up at Eve's Garden because we could not get to our room on Sproul Ranch. Everything was booked up until we found Eve's Garden. Kate, the owner and host, was fantastic. She is very warm and hospitable. This B&B is originally a house and greenhouse that has been converted to a B&B. You walk into your room...
