This property could be a complete gem. Instead, the current owners are letting it deteriorate to the point of seediness. In May of 2013, the GM replied to a complaint of dirtiness that the new housekeeping staff was "working on it". HOW LONG CAN IT TAKE? It is now two years later and the rooms are still dirty! "Big Spurs"... More

The perfect Getaway to Getaway! You can do nothing or you can do everything. Stay at Ranch and sit on porch and just look at the magnificent mountains and watch the day go by. Or go into town and hit all the neat little shops, museums and art galleries in Ft. Davis, Alpine and Marfa, Very nice and feiendly staff.... More

We upgraded from a bunkhouse to a hillside cabin. The bunkhouses are for larger numbers of people and very economical but we felt like we'd be rattling around in there by ourselves, thus the upgrade. The hillside cabins are great. View from porch was very pretty. Rooms don't have TV or phone but internet works. We were here to participate... More

I stayed at Prude Ranch for several days for the Texas Star Party, which is held annually on-site. I was impressed by the staff's friendliness and by the property itself. The views of the nearby hills are fantastic, and it's very quiet and tranquil outside. Fort Davis and Davis Mountains State Park (a hidden gem) are only a few minutes... More

Just returned from an annual three-night trip to the Fort Davis area that eighth graders in my daughter's school have been taking for the last nine years. We've always stayed at Prude Ranch and used it as a base for our activities, which include going to Fort Davis, the McDonald Observatory and its nightly Star Party, Chihuahan Desert Research Institute,...

Staff and property are wonderful. Food was great and my view could not be beat. My cabin was disgusting. There is a difference between rustic and old plus dirty. I also looked at the bunkhouses which were even more disgusting. I hope the owners/investors put some money back into the cabins/bunkhouses as I would love to come back.

What a wonderful place! My son has been to camp here for 6 years and claims its the best place on earth. The accommodations are simple, consider yourself at camp too. The food is always good and I love no TV, no Cell Service, no make-up required.....

We enjoyed staying in one of the cabins that was farthest away from the central ranch house area. A couple bottles of wine, a big sky and bright stars along with javelina that came in close to the cabin made for an entertaining evening. A morninghorseback ride across Limpia Creek and through adjacent hills and dales proved to be a... More

I stayed at Prude Ranch four days and three nights as part of a large travelling junior high school group just a week ago. Great experience, and I'd highly recommend it for groups and families. The food, served off of a buffet, was excellent. Breakfast buffet fare, for example, included real scrambled eggs, thick-cut bacon, sausage, ham, biscuits and gravy,... More

Fran was the lady who assisted us with our reservation to ride horses one day on our vacation to Alpine, Tx. It was raining on and off and the scheduled ride was tentative. She never got ansy and was kind and professional. Genny was the rustler who took myself and two daughters out for a two hour ride. Just can't... More
