Withers

Jeff Davis county near Ft. Davis, TX

Withers Ranch is located deep in the Davis Mountains in far west Texas. Situated in northern Jeff Davis County and eleven miles from the highway on primitive roads, it is accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles. The ranch offers an escape for those interested in swimming, hiking, birding and enjoying beautiful mountain country. The ranch has been in our family since 1972 and is dedicated to the protection and preservation of nature. Through a conservation easement, it is part of a 100,000 acre bioreserve under the stewardship of the Nature Conservancy that stretches from the slopes of Mt. Livermore to the mouth of Madera Canyon, downstream from our ranch. Come enjoy the magic of Madera canyon, the music of the stream, western sunsets and storms, and create your own memories there.

Chalk Draw

Brewster county near Marathon, TX

As Bee Cave Canyon comes into view at the end of the 10 mile off road drive, you know you have arrived somewhere otherworldly. Chalk Draw is akin to a resort in the middle of the desert. The pool, manicured lawns, and garden are unlike anything you could have expected to find 60 miles from the nearest town. The Santiago Mountains surround you for adventurous exploration, and then as the sun sets and the stars begin to shine, head up to the rooftop deck for an unparalleled view.

Chandler Ranch

Terrell county near Sheffield, TX

“The new wild is where people and nature thrive together.” These eloquent words perfectly express the Chandler family’s philosophy of the ranch. The vision of making their home a place for guests to enjoy natural beauty and, at the same time, taking care of that beauty was always behind the creation of the guest ranch business. Independence Creek runs clear and steady through the West Texas desert, directly in front of Chandler Ranch headquarters and into the limestone cliffs that form the Pecos River. Escape to the clear cool waters that converge on Chandler Ranch and enjoy swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and exploring.

Hudspeth River Ranch

Val Verde county near Comstock, TX

For thousands of years, people have been drawn to the shade and cool waters of the Devils River. In just a few days at Hudspeth, guests can paddle and swim from pool to pool, stopping for a picnic on the shaded bank. If your stay is timed just right, catch a glimpse of bright orange fall colors from more than just the changing leaves, as thousands of Monarch butterflies stop along their migration route from Canada to central Mexico. Hike to one of several mountain peaks and search for bald and golden eagles above or White-tailed deer, quail, turkey, javelina and aoudad sheep in the canyons below. Mountain bike the 10-mile loop through Cedar Canyon, cool off at one of the shallow river crossings, site in your firearm at the shooting range and end the day with a home-cooked meal at the ranch headquarters.
