About La Posada Milagro Guesthouse

La Posada Milagro Guesthouse is a historically rebuilt boutique hotel owned by Mimi Webb Miller.

Using regional lumber, Ocotillo stalks and stacked rock from its hillside, the structures were built on four existing foundations formed in the 1880s when the mining town, Terlingua was booming.  

A touch of rustic Mexico is found in the stone and tile work, tin roofs and handcrafted doors. The guestrooms are small, but lovingly outfitted with cane and sotol stalk ceilings, ceiling fans, air conditioning units and comfy beds.

Three separate bath rooms are available to guests staying in the Santa Elena Suite, Big Bend Bunkroom and The San Carlos Suite. Private bath rooms are found in The Chisos Suite, Mimi’s Bunkroom and Mimi’s Guestroom.

A Perfect Place for Our Wedding!
"We celebrated at La Posada Milagro for our wedding and we had a blast! The staff was so accommodating! We had a laid back fiesta complete with a taco bar at the outdoor kitchen. The food was incredible! We were able to bring our dogs, which is a huge plus! Loved the showers, and the private bath with the bathtub was a perfect place to relax before the ceremony. We even used the fire pit for a smores bar 🙂 My husband and I will be back to celebrate our anniversary for sure, as this place is low key and romantic. Cannot say enough great things about our stay!"
