Prude Ranch is in a lovely spot in the Davis Mountains, however, that is the best thing I can say about my recent abbreviated one-night stay. The staff is nice and helpful. However, it is my understanding that the ranch is no longer owned by the Prude family due to various circumstances. That said, whoever currently owns it needs to come spend some time in the rooms and decide if they would let their own family members stay there. There is a difference between rustic and just plain old. The furnishings are at least 40+ years old, the pull out couch was terrible even before it was pulled out. There was an ant problem in our room, a leak under the sink, drippy bathroom faucets, uncomfortably hard beds, and burnt-out light bulbs that needed to be replaced. I expected better and was looking forward to sitting on the porch enjoying the view, but instead we opted to move to other other accommodations in the area. This place has so much potential and I do hope that proper care, maintenance and upgrades are made soon to keep this historic ranch from fading off into the sunset.
