About Jennifer Sproul Whitesell
Welcome to the Sproul Family Ranch, located in the heart of the beautiful Davis Mountains! The original Sproul Ranch was founded in 1886 by Robert Stuart Sproul. Over 125 year later, the ranch is still a working cattle ranch, owned and operated by the fourth, fifth and sixth generations of Sproul descendants.

Cozy Fort Davis cabin
Loved the seclusion! Lots of wildlife opportunities right from the front porch!
Breathtaking and Peaceful!
My husband & I spent two nights in this beautiful cabin & we did not want to leave. It is nestled among the most gorgeous portion of the Davis Mountains & is truly a hidden treasure! While at the Davis Mountain State Park we kept looking for “our“ cabin. We were pretty sure we saw aoudad (sheep) climbing on the mountain right by the cabin so we rushed back but we didn’t seem them. Many previous guests mentioned seeing up to 40 of these sheep! We decided to hike there instead of at the park & had a great time. It was more beautiful the higher we went, & we made it all the way to the top!
Coffee every morning on the screened in back porch, soaking in the breathtakingly beautiful mountain about 30 yards away, & stargazing every night marveling at how visible the Milky Way was! During our stay, we saw mule deer, hog, bunnies, a family of turkeys, a roadrunner, & hummingbirds every hour.
The living room & bedroom each have a small window AC unit & in August we had to keep them running. We also kept most of the lights off. There is wi-fi, but I couldn’t get anything on my cell phone to work even with the password provided. My husband said it worked outside in the front yard, but I didn’t bother trying it. I did wonder once or twice if I could have called for help if it had been necessary.
The satellite television always worked perfectly. Just so you know, the green chair in the pictures is not a recliner but both it & the couch are very comfortable.
The kitchen was well stocked. It was great having a refrigerator/freezer, stove & EXCELLENT coffee pot. I could see “my mountain” from the kitchen window too. The bathroom was great. It had a stocked linen closet & I appreciated the little bench under the window. I did have to do my hair in the bedroom because I only saw one outlet in the bathroom & it was too close to the wall for my 3-outlet adapter. Oh, between the bathroom & bedroom there is a closet with a vacuum cleaner, ironing board & iron! We used them too. (Thank you!)
Because of fees, this was quite expensive, but I don’t regret one penny! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely, lovely cabin. We want to make it a part of our future traditions & are already telling our family & friends about it.
Nice isolated place ... lots of wild game and dark skies at night
If i go to the Texas Star Party in 2019, I will stay here again.
Great three-day getaway!
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at this cozy quiet cabin. A highlight was the sight of a pack of 42+ aoudads (aka Barbary sheep) from the back porch. We watched them climb to the top of the rocks in the background. Also saw deer, turkeys, coyote and numerous birds on the property. In town we visited the Fort and the botanical gardens. All in all, a good time!
This was a lovely cabin very private and beautiful scenery. Lots of wildlife and close enough to town for all conveniences. I would highly recommend a stay at this location
Great to be back!
We have been coming here since our son was six years old. He is now 24. It is even more fun and relaxing with just the two of us. Thanks Jennifer for such a great place. The turkey gobbler was not happy with us under his tree at sunset. The cabin has everything you need for a great stay.
Located just minutes from Fort Davis' shopping and restaurants, Fort Davis National Historic Site, and Davis Mountains State Park. A quick 30 minute drive will take you to McDonald Observatory for a star party or to neighboring cities, Marfa and Alpine.
