We called several weeks ahead of our trip to plan an overnight at the highly rated Prude Ranch. Granted it also serves as a camp for children of all ages the ranch also has rooms to rent out for travelers in the area. The Prude Ranch also advertises horse back riding...1 hour rides through the country side. The horseback ride was 27 minutes long, when we asked for an explanation we were told that while they were getting things ready for the riders counted as part of the hour but then another young man said that he always rode for an hour and did not know why it was cut short. The rooms were ok but were dirty. Soap from previous guests left in the shower as well as dead spiders on the floor. The advertisement for food in their cafe on site does not apply to Sunday so if you want breakfast you will have to drive all the way back to Ft. Davis. Not impressed considering there are so many better places to stay in Ft. Davis.
I complained about the charge for the 27 minute ride and expected to be either compensated with money or another ride for the kids. "Bruce" hem-hawed around with multiple excuses that were in conflict with each comment but did squeeze out $40.00. For a $300 + stay that was poor! Stay at Butterfield Inn or Wayside B & B or Mt. Trail Lodge B & B for a better stay!
