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.

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
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.
The best home we have stayed in so far. Our family loved the views day and night. The kitchen was so easy to work in and well equipped with a gas stove that cooked like a dream. Every detail was perfect. Pictures really do not do this property justice. There are so many activities for outdoor lovers and Glen Rose is just a pristine little place.
Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is absolutely amazing. The kids loved Big Rocks Park and Dinosaur Valley State Park. We were treated very well by the home owner and everyone in the area. Great vacation memories!
The photos give an accurate picture of the house and surroundings, but the inside was even more beautiful than we expected. Very roomy downstairs area and lovely accessories. Very clean and well-stocked. Was close to all the attractions. Upstairs bedroom was roomy and nicely decorated, as well. We only had two couples and a small child in our group, so the arrangements were fine. The loft area could have accommodated even more people, but would have had to share the upstairs bathroom in the bedroom. The owner furnishes terrific directions and instructions, which made locating the property very easy. They also gave tips on other sights and restaurants, which was helpful. Great property. Only drawback was no outside grill (due to the recent droughts).
Our stay could not have been more lovely. The house is beautiful and the thoughtful owners made planning easy and stress-free. The kids had a great time exploring the property, while the rest of us relaxed and enjoyed the views. This is a wonderful place for a quiet weekend or a gathering with friends. We look forward to many returns.
