This gay-owned, upgraded, private homestay isn’t our typical luxury hotel experience, but it certainly added a fabulous, unique dimension to our visit to Marfa. Beyond being centrally-located and offering us easy access to all that is wonderful about this quaint, artsy town; we loved that we felt right at home here from the moment we walked into our suite (a quirky, 1950s bomb shelter). The product of Texas native Clark Childers and his partner Adam Walton’s leap of faith and labour of love, 105 Lincoln consists of a mix of long-term apartments and guest rooms, in buildings that were once stables for the historic, 19th-century courthouse right across the street.
In the 1920s, they were converted into several casitas and remained that way pretty much until 2015, when they were acquired by Clark and Adam and painstaking renovated into their current form over two years. Much of the work was done by the boys themselves, with no stone left unturned. Today, 105 Lincoln features 11 fabulous units, and is in our humble opinion, the most perfect OutThere base to explore Marfa. We very much enjoyed spending time sticking our heads into the fridge of the fully-equipped kitchen and exchanging stories over several glasses of wine, around the fire pit at night.
