Description of the Canyon vacation cabin rental
("Welcome" in the Uto-Aztecan language spoken by the people) to Doves Rest Cabins - Comanche!

The Comanche's were fierce warriors who reached present-day New Mexico, the Texas Panhandle and Palo Duro Canyon by 1700. During that time, their population increased dramatically because of the abundance of buffalo. Though the tribe was large, they never formed a single tribal unit, but rather, were divided into some eight to twelve independent groups. Sharing the same language and culture, they sometimes fought, and other times at peace, cooperating one with the other, similar to the modern family today!

Comanche in their native language is "Numinu", meaning the People. And, Comanche Cabin is just that...for the People. We are proud to bring you this newly constructed home with a universal and accessible design to accommodate a wide variety of guests. This single floor house has been specially designed to accommodate people of all ages, genders, sizes and physical abilities. 36" wide doorways and hallways, generously sized bathrooms with roll in shower, staggered height kitchen counter tops, front entrance and back patio low thresholds for wheelchair ease of access are some of the notable features that make Doves Rest Cabins - Comanche accessible to the PEOPLE.

Comanche is a two-bedroom, two- full bath, in a very accessible, functional and cozy 1,440 sq. ft. design. The cabin features a wood burning fireplace, covered patio and BBQ grill. The fully equipped kitchen offers everything you need to make you feel at home. Clean linens and towels are provided for your comfort along with extra blankets for cozy nights.

Unwind and enjoy magical moments while the golden light mixed with clouds plays over the expanse of Palo Duro Canyon State Park in the spacious Hot Tub! One of the best features of the lovely view from this cabin is the vistas one can see in an 180 degree angle.

Only 16-miles from the city of Canyon, home to West Texas A & M University and just 30-miles south from Amarillo and historic Route 66. There is plenty of shopping, restaurants, museum's and all local amenities to enjoy in the "city."
Area Information
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!
