The Hideout at Palo Duro Canyon. Texas character at its finest!
Located on six private acres, the inside of this rustic pioneer-style cabin is filled with turn-of-the-century charm and modern comfort. A retreat for family or friends, or a romantic getaway. Here you can relax, recharge and unwind in the true spirit of the old west!
Enter through the large screened porch. On the ground floor, enjoy a full kitchen, large dining table, comfortable seating area, wood burning stove for winter use (we supply mesquite firewood), luxury bath, and king size bed. Up the spiral stairs, the loft has a TV/DVD, a full size double bed and a single twin bed. Additional roll-away beds are available. The cabin is also stocked with interesting books about the area and adult/children’s’ board games, and puzzles. There is a telephone and WiFi service.
The bath is large, with an elegant claw foot tub and a crystal chandelier. Or, if you prefer a shower, it's a short stroll to the horse stable that has a nice bathroom with large walk-in shower.
We provide basic toiletry/bath items, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Full kitchen includes cookware, dishes, and basic pantry items. For your first night, we welcome you with a bottle of bubbly and all the fixin's for a hearty breakfast.
From the front door you can see the stable and paddock where our horses live. Even though they are friendly, don't feed or pet them. The Equine Inherent Risk Law prevails. If you're traveling with your horses, contact us about accommodations and fees. Always remember to close the front gate to keep the horses in when entering and leaving the property.
We love watching birds and local wildlife here at the Hideout. You may see songbirds, quail, deer, aoudads, feral hogs, bobcats, and be serenaded by coyotes. Stunning sunrises and sunsets are included.
From June through August there's a tipi on-site where the kids can play and might find a souvenir arrowhead or horseshoe.
If you're in the mood to explore, Palo Duro Canyon State Park is right there, and the entrance to this “Grand Canyon of Texas" is just up the road. Visitors explore by car, hiking, horseback, and bike (best mountain biking around). See palodurocanyon.com for a full description of this wonderful park. Right by the Park are Zipline Adventures, Jeeping tours, and Palo Duro Riding Stables. The musical drama TEXAS shows in the park’s outdoor amphitheater June through August and is a must see!
It’s about a fifteen minute jaunt to the city of Canyon where you’ll find the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum (the largest historical museum in the state of Texas). For restaurants, shopping, nightlife and live music, it’s about a half hour to Amarillo. Find cultural and sporting events, the famous Old Route 66, and the Cadillac Ranch. If you prefer to dine in Canyon, there are several great restaurants on the town square, such as Barrel and Pie, Imperial Tap Room, Sayakamaryns and Palace Coffee.
Additional services include child care, concierge, and equestrian visitors. Fees for additional services vary, so contact us about your needs.
If you are staying for 3 nights or more, you can prearrange use of the washer/dryer.
For your comfort and safety:
Quiet Zone. This is a quiet zone and HOA restrictions apply. No parties or events.
Smoking. The inside of the cabin is a smoke-free zone. Smoking is OK on the screened porch, and a disposal container is provided. Because of the dry land climate and abundant dry vegetation, outdoor fires and smoking are strictly prohibited for fire safety.
We only provide a BBQ grill when fire danger is low.
Very strict pet policy. Contact owner with pet request. We welcome well behaved pets that are either crated or taken with you while you are away from the cabin. We do require pets be on a leash at all times while on the grounds. We provide extra blankets to cover the furniture if your pet gets on furniture. Otherwise pets are not allowed on bedding or furniture as some guests may have pet allergies. We will charge a non-refundable $75 per pet fee. Maximum 2 pets allowed. We can provide a (1), crate if arranged prior to your arrival. Owner must pick up and dispose of pet waste from the grounds ( we provide baggies and a scoop). Pets are not allowed in loft bedroom.
