McIvor Ranch – Also known as the “U Up U Down Ranch”, is a working cattle ranch established in 1882 by G.S. Locke and is still owned and operated by the same family. Grams Ranch House, named in honor of Scott’s grandmother Violet Locke McIvor, is a great place to stay here in the Davis Mountains. It is a neat house with a lot of charm. It has a wonderful view of the McDonald Observatory from the front porch and a majestic view of Blue Mountain off the back porch. The house has three bedrooms and two full baths that can accommodate up to 7 people. It has a living and dining area and a fully equipped kitchen, including a washer and dryer. We have limited availability in the Spring and Fall. We would love for you to come join us here at the ranch for a couple of nights or a while. Please contact us for pricing and available dates. Julie & Scott McIvor.
