Palo Duro Canyon Escape @ Doves Rest Cabins - Fortress

The stronghold of Fortress Cabin takes its name for the centerpiece of its view gazing at the Fortress Cliffs along the east rim of Palo Duro Canyon State Park, a protected six miles of cliffs overlooking the Grand Canyon of Texas. The bluff look’s the same way the first Texans saw it — Unspoiled. The steep margins of the Fortress Cliffs consist of bright, banded layers of orange, red, brown, yellow, and white rocks that represent four geologic periods. Adding to the cliffs scenic grandeur are numerous pinnacles, buttes, and mesas. A place of exceptional security, privacy and refuge – Welcome to Doves Rest Fortress Cabin!

Palo Duro Canyon Escape @ Doves Rest

Welcome to Doves Rest. The #1 and only private vacation home overlooking Palo Duro Canyon State Park.

Doves Rest is located 3,500 feet above sea level situated in the heart of the Texas Panhandle, also known as the Great Southern Plains near the cities of Canyon and Amarillo. Palo Duro Canyon, “The Grand Canyon of Texas,” is just below you from Doves Rest stretching 20-miles across. Your view is only limited by your eyesight! Enjoy staggering sunrises and sunsets - stars appear in numbers beyond belief in the crisp clear night air as this area has some of the darkest skies and cleanest air in the United States.

Here is where the Buffalo roamed. It’s Southern & Quahada Comanche (the most powerful & ruthless Indian tribes in American history), Kiowa, and Cheyenne and Arapaho territory. During their time, around 150-years ago, millions of Buffalo made this land their home and Palo Duro Canyon was a retreat for these nomad Indians - hunters of Buffalo. Chief Quanah Parker, the last of the Quahada Comanche warriors, fought the battle of Palo Duro Canyon not more than 20-miles east from Doves Rest in September 1874. It brought an official end to the U.S./Indian wars and the eventual peace that finally allowed settlers to occupy this last remaining freedom-outpost of “uncivilized” land in North America. Now, fun memories and RELAXATION happen here!

If private and quiet surrounded by nature with friendly wildlife nestled in your own little world only a few minutes away to the second largest canyon in America interests you, then you’re in the right place!
