About Kathy Bork

We came to the Big Bend from Austin in 2002, never expecting any visitors from our past. But we had so many visitors that we built a guest house for family, old friends, and new friends.

Kathy Bork purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathy Bork chose Alpine

From The Little Tin Guest House it's an easy walk to the golf course, the city park and pool, the grocery store, and restaurants. And it's walking weather in Alpine almost any time of year.

What makes this house unique

Comfortable, open floor plan. Priced right. Perfect for 2 days or 2 weeks.

Perfect home and location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home when we went to register our daughter at Sul Ross. The location was perfect, just a quick drive up the street. The home was well supplied although we weren’t there enough to take advantage of all it offers. We plan to book this same home each time we visit our daughter at college.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Do yourself a favor...STAY HERE! The place itself is secluded and off the beaten path, but in a neighborhood. Very clean, well maintained, and beds slept great! Kathy was quick to answer any/all questions we had, and made for a great experience! Almost centrally located to pretty much anything you want to do in west Texas. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank Kathy!!!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect place for a family getaway. The home had everything one could need to stay comfortably for a few days or longer. I've stayed at many properties via VRBO and the owners seemed to have thought through of all the small things one would need or want while being on vacation. Thanks again and we hope to return!
