5/5 Excellent

Fabulous Setting!
A beautiful place on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon. Incredible sunrise each day over the canyon. Very clean, roomy for 2 couples, with every convenience we could’ve imagined. Hope to return to this place again someday.

5/5 Excellent

Bucket List trip to Palo Duro
Wow!!!! The property is absolutely amazing! Everything you could expect and more. The kitchen is stocked with very nice cookware and dishes, not cheap leftover garage sale stuff. The beds are super comfortable. The house was spotless. The hot tub was also very clean Sometimes I am leery about using the hot tub at rental properties, but this one was so sparkling clean so we were able to enjoy using it.. The location is out of this world beautiful!!!! It is worth every minute of the 10.5 hour drive and every penny spent. I highly recommend Doves' Rest Fortress cabin. Go if you can, you won't regret it.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Experience
Lovely cabin with superb views close to state park. Great amenities and very homey. Water drains slow in master bathroom shower and trundle unusable for 5th adult but ok for child. Nice touches everywhere and well stocked. Would stay there again!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful relaxing spring break stay
Our second time staying at the Fortress and it once again did not disappoint. Love all the details but the view is the best part. You just want to live on the back porch. Great view of stars from the hot tub, and we saw so many shooting stars! Thank you!

5/5 Excellent

This 'cabin' is actually a fully stocked 2 bedroom home. It is perfect. The view is spectacular. I could not have imagined the pictures being as true to life as they were. Definitely coming back. Thanks to the great hosts for wonderful communication.
