If you’re not sure a vintage trailer at El Cosmico is your cup o’ hipster, perhaps the Thunderbird is just what you’re looking for. Polished concrete floors, minimalist modern design with just the right notes of low-key luxury, the Thunderbird is the hip spot to lasso up to in Marfa.



Comfy queen-sized beds, writing desks that actually inspire you to write, large bathrooms and a pool, you’ll feel comfortable and inspired in the locally run, revamped 1950’s hotel.



Perhaps you’ll even be inspired to coordinate your outfit to match your blanket and then take a twirl by the pool. You wouldn’t be the first.



After a twirl by the pool or brunch at Cochineal, you can rent a bike for your adventures exploring Marfa.



After a full day of eating and exploring, maybe you’ll even feel inspired enough  to rent the vintage typewriter and get to work on that novel you’ve been meaning to finish (or start) for the past, oh, three years.



Or maybe poems are more your bag?



Writer’s block?



A love letter will do…



It’s also fun to type postcards (grab some from the front desk) and then mail them from the neighboring town of Valentine (hurry, with a population so large, there might be a line!).



A sweet touch.




Either way, you’ll insist on finding a vintage typewriter of your own immediately upon your arrival home and will insist on streaming Marfa Public Radio on your computer to stay in a Marfa state of mind.



Or maybe that’s just me?
