This rental provides a true escape from everyday life. Air conditioning, ceiling fans, heaters, full-size

reservations for the the Terlingau Chili Festival and for the Christmas/winter break.

Getaway - May 2009, a.m.
The various seasons provide a broad variety of desert beauty. Spring and summer often bring cactus and
other blossoms. Perhaps the most entertaining and unpredictable are the clouds and the beautiful sunsets.
The getaway, true to its northern Chihauhaun desert climate, has dozens of species of cacti. Ocotillo,
yucca, many varieties of prickley pear, strawberry pitaya, devil's claw, and rainbow cactus are in
abundance on the property.
