Kerith & Roy Hurley own and operate the H.E. Sproul Ranch and Harvard Hotel which are located in the heart of the Davis Mountains of West Texas. The Ranch was established in 1886 by R.S. Sproul, Kerith's great-great grandfather and was recognized by the state of Texas in 1986 as being the first ranch in Jeff Davis County to have been family owned and operated for 100 years. Today, more than 120 years later, Kerith continues to operate this historic property as a working cattle and hunting ranch. Beginning in 1998, the existing ranch buildings were extensively renovated and additional lodging was built to accommodate hunters. Soon, word of the unique guest accommodations and breathtaking scenery spread to area visitors and Ranch lodging was opened to the public. In 2005, the Harvard Hotel was built to provide guests who wish to stay "in-town" with the same high quality accommodations and amenities as those offered to Ranch guests.
We invite you to stay with us at either location and enjoy unmatched accommodations, scenery and hospitality.
