It had incredible views, was very quiet as it is 2.5 miles off main road. We hiked to the top of a local mountain and views were incredible. The pool area is beautiful. The room was decorated in good taste for a ranch. The resident dogs, horses, mule, donkey were so sweet and friendly, we very much enjoyed playing with...

We just spent 2 nights at the Harvard Lodge, and we were very happy there. It is accessed by a 2 1/2 mile dirt road, so you are well off the beaten path. It was peaceful, the views were stunning, and the pool had a shady area where I could sit in comfort while my child swam. The staff at...

The Sproul Ranch is a great place to relax. We stayed for the Memorial Day Weekend traveling with two other couples. Even though all 6 suites were occupied the owners made us feel at home. The pool and jacuzzi area is breathtaking with the waterfall overlooking the expansive view of the ranch property. We used the great BBQ and bar...

This hotel was great! We were in Fort Davis for 4 nights. We had booked all 4 nights at The Lympia Hotel a few weeks before our arrival. Upon check in and seeing our room we were very unhappy with The Lympia. We checked out and asked for a referral. One of the hotels they referred us to was The...

We spent several days at Sproul Ranch because we wanted a relaxing getaway. Our stay was perfect! One morning,we booked a jeep tour and it was incredible. Mason was an excellent tour guide. I've lived in Texas my whole life, and I've never seen views as beautiful as the ones we saw that morning. We saw mule deer, antelope,and javelina....

Looking for an off-the-beaten track start to a trip to the Davis Mountains and beyond, we started here. We chose this ranch, located ~7mi from downtown Ft. Davis - 5mi of paved road, 2 of good gravel/dirt (n.b. navigable in standard sedan, even in middle of the dark night). Stayed in one of the 5 or 6 lodge rooms, which...

As a last minute change in plans for a class trip to Big Bend, we quickly and successfully booked the entire ranch to house 24 people for 2 nights. Bo was very friendly and helpful in arranging the reservations on short notice. The Ranch was gorgeous and comfortable. Wesley came by to check on us and see if we needed...

We travel through Ft. Davis on occasion and this time we wanted to try something different so we booked a room at the Harvard Ranch Suites. It is part of the Harvard Lodge (downtown) but the Ranch Suites on on their working ranch a few miles outside of town, near the State Park and near Prude Ranch. We enjoyed our...

I would like to begin by saying this is a great property and a lovely place to stay. My husband and I went with our two teenage boys for a long weekend get away and to visit attractions in the area. The problem is with the person booking the lodge. We were told that the lodge is great for all...

My husband and I recently stayed at Sproul ranch and loved it. The pictures on the hotel's website simply don't do it justice. Get here early and enjoy the pool area as much as you can. It is also a convenient place to stay if you're going to the McDonald Observatory; which is about a 25 minute drive away.
