Gage Hotel Marathon TX

Gage Hotel Marathon TX - The Gage Hotel is a historic hotel located at the gateway to Big Bend National park. We were down here for a friends 20 year anniversary three day party. They have a great area for large parties and music was supplied by some great Country Western band all under night stars. This is a dark skies area even in this little town of 400 you can see the stars at night. Marathon is considered the gateway to Big Bend National Park and only about thirty minutes from Alpine and a little more to Marfa which are close by. This hotel was built for a pioneer rancher, Alfred S. Gage and designed by the well-known El Paso architect, Henry Trost. Henry Trost also design the Holland in Alpine and the Parisan in Marfa Texas. The hotel carries the western theme along with the touches of spanish, and new mexico style. The rooms all have different western themes and all are adored with cow hides on the floor ours room had a pair of western chaps on the wall, each room is unique. The outside are beautiful in the Los Portales and garden like atmospher with spanish fountains and benches in front of the rooms just lovely. Then there is the la kiva courtyard and a large area for dancing the night away under the stars. Through out the area the stucco walls have a mix of western themes animal skulls with horns from longhorns to buffalos skulls, and other exotic animals. The ground have some of the biggest yuccas I have ever seen they must have been growing for a hundred years. The yuccas were the same size as the palm trees at least 20 to 30 feet. It is a very unique place and it is pretty much every business in town caters to the hotel guest in some way. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
