Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: David & Stephanie, owners, are honored to work beside each other ranching cattle and in their family owned and operated steel building business, DG Construction. Stephanie is a Christian author, speaker and swim coach/water safety instructor. Together they are blessed with four children and two grandchildren.

Why Athens, TX, USA:
SD Ranch was established by David & Stephanie in 1993. They have raised their children and shared a family owned and operated business near this cabin while also ranching cattle and enjoying the great outdoors. The Gurleys believe all blessings come from God, and that hard work, honest living, and appreciation for God's creation teach values of great importance in life. On this property you will see the evidence of their hard work and the beauty of the blessings which flow from it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Experienced ranchers and greenhorns alike will appreciate the rustic ranch atmosphere. A beautiful cabin surrounded by a full wrap around porch overlooking the peaceful waters of the SD Ranch. Enjoy fine luxurious leather along with the cowhide rug, ranchers décor and whiskey barrel table. Add to that the full amenities including washer/dryer, refrigerator, stove top, microwave, coffee pot and furnishings, and you will feel right at home. Outside we offer opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors including fishing, horseshoes, washers, relaxation on the back porch and bird watching including an occasional bald eagle sighting who frequents our property. End the day around a beautiful concrete fire pit enjoying your favorite meal. Each reservation will also receive an autographed copy of the book written by cabin owner, Stephanie Gurley. With all this to offer, a stay at our cabin should leave you ready to return home "Refreshed in His Spirit".
