Who knew something so bright and unexpected could be found in West Texas? Dense, saturated blues, reds, oranges and purples welcomed as we entered and continued as we explored the grounds filled with plants, fountains, flowers and smelling of fragrant earth and petals. We had never seen anything like it and the coolest thing, the owner's built the joint themselves out of recycled materials. It's amazing! Each room is different, but the our family stayed in was perfect. The owners are easy going and welcoming, with great local connections and a love for what they're doing. Marathon is the same -- a walkable town filled with its own characters, all with stories to tell. Eve's Garden's breakfast will make you want to wake up twice so you can eat again! We'll be back, I hope.
