Come to Marfa in the summer. Since Marfa is at 5,000 ft elevation it has average highs in the upper 80's and lows in the upper 50's...in July and AUGUST with NO humidity.
Corte del Norte is a lush retreat in heart of Marfa within walking distance of all of Marfa's restaurants, galleries and shops. The Corte del Norte compound includes two houses: this house (Rock City) and the Love House. If you don't want to be indoors in the big sky country - CDN has the fabulous outdoor spaces for you.
Corte del Norte has been designed by Jamey Garza and Constance Holt Garza of Garza Marfa.
The outdoor spaces are so beautiful at Corte del Norte and if you're like me, when in Marfa I want to be outside all the time!
We have a private outdoor dining table right outside the kitchen of the Rock City House; an adobe and glass dining shed with a 9 ft. dining table and tulip chairs, fireplace and bar; AND you'll love cooling off in our stock tank pool.
It's a great place for parties and events however, we'll need to discuss our event policies in advance. Event fees and an additional deposit apply for parties of 10 or more. Please contact us and we'll help you plan a special birthday party, anniversary or wedding.
THREE night minimum for holidays and special event weekends.
The Rock City House has one bedroom and one bath along with living room, and kitchen. This home sleeps 4 with one queen bed in the bedroom and a custom Garza Marfa sectional sofa made of two twin mattresses in living room. If you need more beds....please see The Love House at Corte del Norte. You can also check out our Corte del Norte site.

Located on HWY 90 at the corner of Dean and San Antonio, Corte del Norte was home to the 'mother of West Texas Tex-Mex' according to Robb Walsh in his book, The Tex-Mex Cookbook. From 1887 until 1987, the Old Borunda Cafe served both locals and movie stars alike, including James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor during the filming of Giant. Now home to the corner stores including Cobra Rock Boot Company, Smilebooth and 3C.
Corte del Norte is a great location!
