2BR HOME RESTING ON 12 ACRES NEAR FOSSIL RIM WILDLIFE PARK

Glen Rose House Rental Photos and Description

Glen Rose, Texas 76043 - Very Near Fossil Rim Wildlife Park

This very secluded country retreat is located just outside Glen Rose, a sleepy little town south and west of Fort Worth. It is about an hour and a half from nearly anywhere in the DFW Metroplex. 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!

Our New FAVORITE!!

Hands down - this may be the best vacation house we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean. It was secluded (which we loved!), but easy to find - with the directions provided in the wonderful Guide that Nelson and CJ sent to us. Just down the road from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve....which we enjoyed fully with our kids and grandbabies! Soooo relaxing......we have stayed in very few "better than my home" rentals or hotels these last few years....but this one....was just that -we just wished we could just stay on & on!
Loved the obvious care and love that Nelson and CJ take to make you feel welcome. The pantry had coffee, snacks, and everything you need for everyday life....plus - good quality linens, plenty of towels, this is a home that will feel like your own home when you walk in - with lovely furnishings and a thoughtful decor. But it is very family friendly and kid – friendly, too.
The kitchen was lovely – with all you would need for a great weekend......inviting you to stay in for the evening. The beds were the best we have ever slept on in a vacation rental!
But the best thing of all for me was that wall of windows.....I loved that! Absolutely hypnotic.... A perfect, perfect weekend....a good time was had by all! Thank you, Nelson & CJ!

An excellent long weekend with a friend

Two friends happened upon this house while looking for a spot for a long catch up weekend. The house was all it promised to be on the website and more. When you stand in the great room, it is even better than the photos. The house was super clean, the furniture was comfortable, the beds great, kitchen had everything we needed for cooking or just consuming. We went to 2 area wineries, Granbury (20 minutes), Glen Rose (5 minutes) and Dinosaur Valley State Park. The sunset view from the back porch is outstanding. The owners are helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a spot where you can be surrounded by trees, sky and quiet on site and enjoying 2 quaint towns or hiking in the park when you are off site.

Perfect Place!

This home was the perfect get away place for my daughter and I. The owners obviously believe in doing everything top-notch, and will most definitely get a return visit from us.

The home is located on twelve beautiful acres. It has gorgeous views, walking trails, and rocking chairs on the patio to enjoy the cool breeze. On one of our walks we saw many types of different birds in the trees. It was a lovely site.

The owner was very helpful in accommodating us as our previously planned travels up north were canceled due to severe winter weather. He rented us his home the same day we called. The woman that helped with the reservation was very polite, knowledgeable and helpful as well.

When we arrived we were very surprised at how lovely the home was decorated. We loved the library! The house is open, but has a very comfortable feel to it. I was very pleased that on such short notice, on my part. The home was stocked with cold drinks, snacks, spices and fresh linens. The beds and living area furniture are very comfortable! I loved the huge window in the living area, as you can sit on the comfortable couch at night and look at the stars. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking!

One of the things I loved most about this house is the absolute quiet! I live outside a very large city. It was so nice to sit outside and not hear sirens and road noise! It is very relaxing!

The photos do not do the house justice. If you have a chance stay at this home. You will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed!

Thank you again for your hospitality and making our get away a wonderful experience! We will see you again soon!

Romantic weekend away from it all.

We were looking for a quiet getaway for ourselves and our two dogs (German pointers), and we found it. The house is wonderful (the pictures are accurate) with plenty of room, very comfortable furniture in the living room, and a very comfortable bed in the master bedroom. We cooked two meals in the well stocked kitchen (all of the pots, pans, and utensils that you would need are there). In regards to the outdoors, it was perfect for us. The views are wonderful and the size of the property was more than enough for our dogs to run and burn off their energy. In dealing with the owners, Nelson is wonderful to deal with, and he provides you with a guide that gives you any information that you would need (restaurant recommendations, site seeing advice, even how to operate the T.V.). We would definitely rent this house again, and if you are going to visit the Fossil Rim Park, this rental is just down the street.

Beautiful property -- perfect location!

Our family of four had a lovely stay at this property. The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable, plus many extras (sodas in the fridge, coffee supplies, snacks, toiletries, etc.) are provided.
The house is secluded yet easy to find. Upon booking, the owners Nelson and C. J. provide a very helpful and thorough packet explaining everything you need to know.
Fossil Rim is literally just down the road, and other destinations including the town of Glen Rose with groceries and restaurants are very close by.
A perfect spot -- we highly recommend it!!
