Terrific cabin, sensational view!

Well worth the drive and the expense to stay here! We usually vacation in the Texas hill country or the coast, but this was well worth the visit! Cabin is cozy and comfortable with all the amenities. The view was just amazing and even better than the pictures! We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this place, not to mention the view and the wildlife. Hope to return and bring the whole family!

We loved this cabin! Felt like home

This property is stunning! The email sent with all the information prior to our arrival set up our expectations. We shopped before arriving and had EVERYTHING we needed to cook our meals. we were there for my ultra race in Palo Duro Canyon and so after almost 11 hours of running it was so nice to come back to a cozy cabin with my husband and 2 year old.

Grand Prairie, TX


A piece of paradise!

If you are looking for a few days away from the grind of life, a few days to refresh your heart and mind, a few days to be recreated in the silence and solitude of a beautiful home with a breath taking view, this is the place for you. Everything was wonderful. The owners attention to detail is amazing, and the view is beyond words. We stayed in Fortress... and we don't have enough nice things to say about it; it was truly wonderful.
