The Merritt Lodge was originally built in 2001 on a 8000-acre working ranch located among the agriculture area and the traditional sand hills of the Texas Panhandle. At that time, "A.P." Merritt had a vision of constructing a functional but comfortable lodge that would accommodate his family or his personal guests and clients. With the demand for the Merritt Lodge increasing yearly, the lodge was expanded in 2006 to include a second floor containing two bedrooms and an additional bunkhouse style sleeping area. Since its inception, those staying at the lodge have always enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere in a casual, rustic setting. The lodge is heated and air conditioned with individual units for the private bedrooms and common heating/cooling systems for the balance of the lodge.

The Merritt Lodge can accommodate a total of twenty-five individuals. The lodge contains six individual bedrooms (each having a private bathroom) and two bunkhouse style sleeping quarters (each quarter having a communal bathroom). The bedroom furnishings are handmade from natural cedar and the walls of the lodge are covered with a combination of rough-cut cedar and pine timber. Trophies and photos in the lodge attest to the incredible hunting and outdoor adventures available to those staying at the Merritt Lodge.

The state-of-the-art kitchen allows our staff to prepare meals. Meals prepared with a variety of county-style foods. The kitchen is combined with a large informal dining area in which guests and clients can plan their day’s outdoor activities. You’ll never leave hungry!

The large screen TV is located in the lounge/ bunkhouse quarter.

Telephone service is available at the lodge
(806-888-1070). In addition, cellular service is available by AT&T and Alltel to the Sandhill Ranch and surrounding area.

Dog kennels are located on the ranch properties should our guests choose to bring their dogs. Additionally, horse pens are located in the same area if guests need to stable horses for recreational riding. Because animals grow accustomed to a specific diet, guests are asked to provide food for their animals.

Staff resides on site to assist our guests with their hunting and outdoor activities, transportation, and questions relating to this rugged part of our great state.

The price for using the Merritt Lodge is:

   • $100 per day per person (guests bring food and prepare own meals) or

   • $150 per day per person (includes three meals).

Our policy has always been – “The customer comes first.” We think you will find the Merritt Lodge meets or exceeds your expectations. We generally book up early for seasonal hunting and other outdoor activities so give us a call today to reserve the Merritt Lodge for your next outdoor adventure.
