You’re going to want to take a trip to Texas immediately.
Raise your hand if your idea of a successful vacation always includes an incredible view and wine. Us too — and it turns out we’re not alone. The most popular vacation home rental on HomeAway.com is a Canyon, Texas cabin that has unparalleled views and giant patio that just screams “happy hour.”
The property is known as the Doves Rest SkyHouse, because it’s located hundreds of feet above the west rim of Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Inside, the home features a relaxing, breezy style that blends in seamlessly with its natural surroundings. High ceilings, rustic elements like a stone fireplace, and an abundance of windows will make you feel like you’re always able to embrace the nature you traveled so far to enjoy. The master bedroom has its own private bathroom suite, while the living room can be converted into a makeshift bedroom to allow the home to sleep a total of five people.
And since the house is located only a few minutes from the main entrance of the park, guests have noted how convenient it is for daytime activities like hikes, bike rides, and even mountain climbing. Then you can take to the 500-square-foot covered porch — which will soon feature a hottub (!) — to relax post-excursions with a glass of wine (or two). Interested? You can rent the home for $320 per night. Just don’t be surprised when you find yourself describing the view as “priceless.”
