Sitting on 12 heavily wooded acres, this location is perfect for weekend recharges or week-long romantic getaways. There is a variety of things to do including great restaurants and kid-friendly activities. This is a great close to-home vacation spot.
Glen Rose has the reputation for being a sleepy little town at the edge of the Hill Country. In most cases, that's an apt description. It's a great place to recuperate and relax.
This country retreat boasts a quick ten minute drive to the entrance of Fossil Rim Wildlife Park, the 1700 acre drive-through zoo, perfect for the young and young at heart. Children can also enjoy a day at Dinosaur World, just a few miles from the home. There is a variety of shopping and dining minutes away in downtown Glen Rose.
You will sleep comfortably on the king-size Sleep Number bed in the master bedroom downstairs. The downstairs bath features an over-sized shower while the upstairs bath has a tub/shower combination. Upstairs in the newly renovated loft, you'll find a nice queen-size bed in the oversized guest suite as well as 2 brand new twin beds (Beautyrest mattresses) for additional sleeping of adults or children in the sitting area outside of the guest suite.
The indoor dining table seats ten comfortably and the full-sized kitchen will make you feel right at home. Entertain outdoors as you enjoy spectacular views from the huge patio equipped with rocking chairs and an outdoor dining table. The home is perfect for family get-togethers, scrap-booking weekends and holidays. The home can comfortably seat over 35 people indoors and out, with eating facilities for over 20 at a time.
If you love to drive (or live to ride), Glen Rose is an amazing area to enjoy. Do a web search for car/motorcycle/bicycle tour suggestions in and around Glen Rose and you'll find many breakfast runs, afternoon rides and breath-taking evening tours that are Hill Country spectacular! As a side note to this, the home is located directly on the infamous "Paluxy Pedal" cycle circuit in October. If you are a participant, book early!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 1985
This house was perfect! It fit our family just the way I had hoped. Roomy, beautiful setting, space for all!!!
Loved every part of it.!!!
What a wonderful escape from the city! We stayed here for 3 nights over spring break and absolutely loved the property and house! The location is excellent being so close to Fossil Rim, and the owner has thought of pretty much everything in the house. It was well-stocked, and had everything we needed for our stay and then some. We took long walks each evening up and down the long driveway and let the kids and our dog run to their heart's content. If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, you've found it!
A great property! The house was perfect for our family! We loved the outside fire pit, the beautiful house, and the land. We explored and had so much fun! The house is conveniently located close to fossil rim! The beds were comfortable and the living space was awesome! It was nice, they even had a pack and play and booster seat. We also loved the checker table. Everything was great! I'd recommend this property! We hope to return again.
Christmas is MAGICAL at this beautiful ranch in Glen Rose---even the second time around! (See our previous review from December, 2012) Hosts Nelson and CJ had decorated evergreen trees at the gate, hung festive jingle bells along the gravel driveway, plus decorated a huge Christmas tree and EVERY room in the house in Christmas splendor. They hit the mark in providing items we appreciated: ample snacks and soft drinks, coffee, luxury towels and linens, extra toiletries---even a Pack-n-Play for our granddaughter. The Guide they sent us ahead of our stay was spot-on with entertainment ideas and restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed the Glen Rose square, and especially Pie Peddlers. Both young grandchildren loved nearby Fossil Rim Wildlife Park. Warm weather enabled us to spend hours traipsing around the ranch and picnicking one afternoon outside. And the fact that these gracious hosts allow us to bring our family dogs? Wow, just wow!
Our stay was everything we had hoped for and more. There was plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beautiful home and serene countryside. Although it was a bit chilly, we took several walks around the property with our dogs... even startled a small buck in the wee hours of the morning.
As many others have already mentioned the home is very well laid out and furnished with all the comforts of home. There is a great deal of detail in the decorating which made it fun for my wife and I to walk around and look at the interesting pieces.
My wife loves history and old books so she was extremely pleased with the Library!
We cannot wait to return when the weather is a tad bit warmer and visit some of the nearby attractions.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family!
Our family stayed at the Glen Rose house for a few days just before Christmas, to spend time together and escape the pre-holiday frenzy. We felt at home immediately, and although I can’t say I have ever had a bad experience with VRBO, this was the most welcoming and accommodating place we have ever stayed. From great literature for reading to an overcoat for borrowing when the weather turned colder than expected, it was clear the owners had put thought into making us feel like guests rather than renters passing through. Thinking back on our visit makes me smile.
