105 Lincoln Boutique Hotel

105 West Lincoln
Marfa, Texas 79843

105Lincoln.com

105 Lincoln is a historic boutique hotel booked exclusively through AirBnB. Centrally located with one-of-a-kind views of the Presidio County Courthouse just across the street, 105 LINCOLN gives you all the comforts of a private home with easy walking access to everything Marfa has to offer.

105 Lincoln started out as stables for the iconic Marfa courthouse in the 1890s, before it was converted into a home and various casitas in the 1920s. It stayed that way for over a century, taking on numerous remodels until it was fully updated and restored in 2017.

The building now consists of nearly a dozen overnight guest suites, including a bomb shelter added in the 1950s. Each functions like a private residence, with a fully-equipped kitchen and all the comforts of home, no matter the length of your stay.

Please check out our website for booking links, local activities, restaurant options, and bios of the local artists whose work is featured in our suites.
