This place in not luxury BUT you will not find a more unique place or a more interesting place anywhere. It's somewhat run down but it's a cross between "earth-ship" houses, a hippie commune from the 60's and an art museum. There are African sculptures, Asian rugs, a mid-eastern dagger, antique toys, a 1920's/30's gas pump.....and so on. If you're and art lover, you HAVE to see the "Museum Room".
There is little light pollution if you want to star gaze.
I stayed at the Loma so I could visit Big Bend which is very close to there.
