Back in November 2022 we shared with you about a really cool place that opened up a mile away from Palo Duro Canyon.  It was Sad Monkey Mercantile.

This is a place for people to stop to grab a drink, coffee, beer, or items needed for their camping in the canyon.  It's also great for those living in the area, they can stop in and pick up milk or bread without having to drive into town.   It's the perfect stop for those traveling to Palo Duro Canyon.   Not only that, it has beautiful views and a great outside deck just to chill and enjoy the beauty.

As that beauty goes, it is such a great location with such pretty views, it would go without saying this would also be a perfect area for a venue for parties and even weddings.  Guess what?  That's what they did.

This Huge Cabin In Palo Duro Canyon Is Top-Notch Glamping

This cabin is (to us) the definition of "glamorous camping".

This three bedroom rental is tucked away in the Palo Duro Canyon. It's a cabin with serious room, meaning it can fit up to eight guests--a girls trip, family vacation, or any bigger group.

The cabin is available for booking through and the description along with the provided photos is enough to catch the eye of anyone ready to get out of town and away from it all.....without having to go very far.

It's a beautiful place with woodwork throughout, full amenities, and all the mandatory electornics (and WiFi!). If a group of people were to split the cost of their stay between each other, it is without a doubt one of the most budget-friendly options for vacations.

The four day minimum stay required to make a booking is the only drawback to this diamond in the rough of a rental property--but it's nothing a little planning ahead and vacation time can't remedy.
