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.

Jennifer Sproul Whitesell purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Jennifer Sproul Whitesell chose Fort Davis

We love Limpia Canyon and want to share a piece of our paradise with you! We built the cabin in 1998 so that people could come experience the serenity and majesty of the Davis Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

The quiet, peaceful solitude of La Cabaña Escondida will make you love this place as much as we do!

Great to be back!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Quiet pretty place

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. We spent two nights here and loved the peaceful atmosphere. You have everything you need in this clean and cozy cabin. We really enjoyed both the front covered and back covered and screened porch. A perfect jumping off point for visiting the Observatory, Balmorhea, Alpine, and Marfa. Fort Davis is also a nice town, and this cabin is perfectly located near downtown and near the national historic site. Easy reservations and good communication with the owner. Thank you!

Peace On Earth

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding accommodations. I cried when I left. That is how beautiful the Davis Mountains and the site of this cabin are. If you have not been to this part of Tejas, you need to get here. Part of my heart always stays in Fort D.

Enjoyable stay

Wife and I spent three nights at this small and comfy cabin. Enjoyed the solitude and the conveniences it offered. Found the cabin to be clean, well taken care of, and nicely appointed with items that you will need during your stay.
