Madera Canyon Ranch rests in the romantic Davis Mountains of Far West Texas. This is a special slice of Texas Heaven many have never discoveredyet. The ranchs location is dramatic, taking in two major geographical markers, Timber Mountain at 6,100 feet and Mt. Annie at 6,200 feet. The 1902 historic headquarters rests at the base of this pair after taking in two miles of Madera Canyon.
The lodging at Madera Canyon Ranch includes the old pioneer ranching, Kingston familys wood and limestone plantation style home with near 6,000 sq/ft. and complete with a wraparound porch to enjoy the mountain breezes. Included are an 1868 Cowboy Bunkhouse, large barbeque pit courtyard, garage, game rack, cattle pens, and walk-in game cooler. All of your family and friends can choose from 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeper porches, or cozy up to a fire in the original fireplaces.
Madera Canyon Ranch waters from seasonal rains into Madera Creek, three wells, two spring fed surface tanks, and most unique: live spring water on tap at the headquarters from Kingston Spring. It has a stronger flow from Dark Canyon Spring, and other smaller springs throughout the ranch. Wells and springs provide year round consistent water for wildlife and livestock. A balanced ranch, Madera extends from lush mountain canyons to brushy low country, to typical rockier Trans-Pecos plains. Madrone trees, oaks, cottonwood, pinon pines, with acacia, cenizo, sumac, cedar, agave, stool, white brush with heavy grasses of grama and bristle grasses round out a healthy habitat. The habitat acreage to purchased acreage ratio for Madera Canyon Ranch is high at 1.6 giving more acreage for use by wildlife in return for the invested dollar.
The Ranch has much to offer to the avid outdoorsman. Texas mule deer, Aoudad sheep, blue/scaled quail, free-roaming elk, wild turkey, hogs, grey fox, bobcats, antelope, javelina, and mountain lions live here. A Mecca for bird watchers is Madera Canyon Ranch.
