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.

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.

Great Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away at this quaint little cabin. It was the perfect size for the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) and equipped with everything we needed. The kids loved exploring and climbing around the property and we took in fantastic views of the Davis Mountains from the ridge behind the cabin. It's also a great location for exploring other sites in the area as well. We visited Davis Mountains State Park, the McDonald Observatory and spent a little time in Fort Davis. We were also treated to an amazing lightening show while we ate dinner on the front porch. We're already planning our next visit!

Perfect getaway and great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. So secluded. Just what we were looking for. Great front and back porches and plenty of space inside. Loved the location. So close to the Davis Mountains state Park and so many towns to visit. Saw so much wildlife hiking the property. Turkeys, deer, javelinas bunnies and birds. The mountain views are stunning.

Scenic setting with comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular stay. We were there for my husband's birthday and was looking for a place in the mountains. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. We found Fort Davis to be a delightful town with lots of colorful locals. While staying there we encountered several native animals and it was great fun to be able to observe them in their own settings. We toured Marfa one day and the Fort the other day.

Only downside and it was not related to the cabin at all, was lunch/dinner options. We found the local area to be on their own time. Lunch is very limited to one or two places and dinner is great if there isn't a local event. Otherwise the small restaurants are not able to handle the volume. Recommend you bring groceries to the cabin and make lunch. You might be frustrated otherwise. Great stay would recommend this to couples and individuals wanting to connect with nature or to get away from the hustle of city life.

So peaceful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Jennifer's place for several days and absolutely loved it. The cabin was perfect for us and our boys loved taking hikes and looking for 'crystals'. So many sweet family memories were made during our vacation here. We plan to return.

Exactly what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely place. We were able to get tons of hiking in and saw all kind of animals. We even saw a Jaguarondi (had no idea what it was until we googled). The property could not be more secluded and quiet yet it is close enough to the state park and the McDonald Observatory (strongly urge to go) to enjoy. The only thing that could have made it better would be able to stay longer.

Charming, private cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was lovely. My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights and had a fantastic time in the area. The cabin was clean, the bed was comfortable and all the kitchen amenities were provided as advertised. The cabin is located on a piece of property behind a gate, far from any other houses and has great views of the surrounding landscape. Private as it is though, the location is pretty convenient. We went to the McDonald Observatory one night, Marfa for a day and even trekked down to Big Bend for another day. All were doable from this location and this was a great place to come back to after a long day of exploring. Would recommend this place without hesitation!
