Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was just as described and served our purpose very well. We were able to walk to the square to eat and browse and the drive to the state park was short and easy. The house was very well equipped with all the necessities and the beds were all comfortable.

We all enjoyed our experience and we are talking about making the gathering a regular thing.

Loved the house. So many bedrooms and 2 large living areas to enjoy games with the family. So glad we found this place to stay for when we visit my daughter at college.

All the convenience and room of "Home"!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit! Susan was very responsive and provided wonderful information leading to an enjoyable stay. This house is roomy, clean, and comfortable. We loved being in town for the evenings, but only 15 minutes away from Palo Duro State Park where we hiked and explored God's beautiful scenery. It is also minutes from Amarillo where we visited the Cadillac Ranch, The Big Texas Steak Ranch, and Jack Sisemore Traveland's RV Museum. The house included a full size washer and dryer which lessened the need to pack for the whole week. For the 4th of July, Canyon celebrates well, and we took front row seat to the festivities by walking only a block from the house! Thank you, Canyon TX, for honoring your military and first responder heroes! Quickly, we fell in love with this little town, the beautiful canyon, and it all became possible because of our "home away from home", The 300 House!

Close to town

  • 4 of 5

Great location. You can walk to town for dinner and to check out the shops. Easy drive to Palo Duro Canyon and to Buffalo National Wildlife Refuge. Good central location to explore the area.

The home was very comfortable for 4 adults. Lots of room to spread out.

Perfect for a big family

  • 5 of 5

The 300 house is a very unique old house! My sister & I rented the house for our little families to stay in during our youngest sister’s wedding. There was more than enough space for all 6 of us. It has everything you need and is very close to the town square in Canyon which was my favorite part. If ever in need, we would love to book it again.
