Eve's Garden B&B and Ecology Resource Center

An unusual bed & breakfast made of papercrete. 

Eve’s Garden is an unusual bed & breakfast located in the high desert of West Texas, near Big Bend National Park. Most of the guest rooms are constructed of papercrete, an adobe-like block made from Portland cement, recycled paper, and various other additives.

Built using classical vaults, arches, and domes, the architecture combines middle-eastern feel with bold colors to produce a a feeling that has been described as “Through the Looking Glass.”
