We have been watching the ever growing, ever evolving construction of this turquoise structure for years as we passed thru Marathon onto Big Bend. Last September we finally decided to check out this place, Eve's Garden. Made entirely from paperkrete and painted a riot of colors, this bed and breakfast is like no other~every part of it, every nook and...

Kate's B&B was an amazing gem in Marathon. It's close enough to Big Bend but far enough away to escape. It's colorful, quaint, welcoming, special and quirky. It's very clean and so many hidden nooks and crannies. Kate is an amazing and gracious host. The coffee was delicious and the breakfast was unlike anything we have ever had. So much...

If you've read any of my reviews, you know I tend to like quirky over chain accommodation-but only when the quirky option "works". Eve's Garden most definitely works. Permit me to take a step back: between Christmas and New Years my wife and I decided to stay in Marathon Texas as a stepping off point for hiking in Big Bend...

You are not going to miss this B&B as it approaches when you come to Marathon. And you should not miss the opportunity to stay there. What a great relaxing experience in this ever evolving project. We where guests and treated as family. Recommending to all. PLUS the finest breakfast ever, .

We stayed at this lovely, very unique b&b for 2 nights now. Right from the moment we pulled up we loved this place. The entire b&b is painted in fantastic colors which you can see from down the street. I understand that the blocks that were used to build the rooms are made from recycled paper (which is awesome!). In...

This bed and breakfast is about an hour from the north entrance of Big Bend National Park, but this quaint place has organic breakfasts, lovely courtyard with a self service drink area and a nice outdoor area by the fire. The organic breakfasts were the highlight for us! Spring Break 2013

Not your typical B&B. The hosts are wonderful. The rooms are unique, large and quiet. Morning breakfast is gourmet. Three day stay for us -- really enjoyed the short vacation...........................

Eve's Garden specializes in environmental sound building for itself and advises others on building process. If this were a large hotel, we would say the atrium is a green house about 100 feet long. The currently constructed 7 rooms open into the green house. The construction is done with special light weight high r factor bricks that they make on...
