From our past guests...

The Withers is a magical place that will restore soul and help you to return to your life recharged and ready for anything. - Margaret Bettinger

The Withers was a fantastic experience. Words do not descibe the beauty of the land, and the true majesty it encompasses. Healthy eating, hiking, and being unplugged are just what the doctor ordered! Go, and you will not be disappointed. - Evonne Gottsch

The West Texas adventure like none other meets you at the gate of the Withers. Where every sun rise starts a new adventure and every sunset rewards your accomplishments. -Maggie Carlson

A trip to the Withers has everything that a seasoned traveler expects from a five star destination escape: total seclusion, astounding natural beauty, delicious food and drink, and unwavering attention to detail. The hour long four wheel drive into the property made me immediately aware that this trip was going to defy preconceived notions of West Texas. The hiking is world class, the lodgings are comfortable and stylish, with spectacular views from every room. We had the most delicious and healthy food I have ever eaten, made all the more delicious by the mountain air, starry skies, and day long hikes. -Lisa Womack
