About Comanche "Marúaweeka,"
("Welcome" in the Uto-Aztecan language spoken by the people) to Doves Rest Cabins – Comanche! The Comanche’s were fierce warriors who reached present-day New Mexico, the Texas Panhandle and Palo Duro Canyon by 1700. During that time, their population increased dramatically because of the abundance of buffalo. Though the tribe was large, they never formed a single tribal unit, but rather, were divided into some eight to twelve independent groups. Sharing the same language and culture, they sometimes fought, and other times at peace, cooperating one with the other, similar to the modern family today! Comanche in their native language is “Numinu”, meaning the People. And, Comanche Cabin is just that…for the People. We are proud to bring you this newly constructed home with a universal and accessible design to accommodate a wide variety of guests. This single floor house has been specially designed to accommodate people of all ages, genders, sizes and physical abilities. 36” wide doorways and hallways, generously sized bathrooms with roll in shower, staggered height kitchen countertops, front entrance and back patio low thresholds for wheelchair ease of access are some of the notable features that make Doves Rest Cabins – Comanche accessible to the PEOPLE.
