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!

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
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).

Fabulous weekend

  • 5 of 5
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.

Looking for some peace and quiet?

  • 5 of 5
A great country home, beautifully furnished and appointed. We enjoyed our stay here immensely.
We visit Glen Rose regularly for the history, recreational fun, shopping and dining. This excellent and comfortable home will now be on our list of places to stay.
The home owners make you feel very welcome and the quiet solitude of the area is just the ticket for a great getaway.

Beautiful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Best vacation house we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean. It was secluded on 12 acres, but very 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! We just need to go back soon to enjoy Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World (with our 3-yr-old grandson!) and the Big Rocks park. The Glen Rose town square needs to be explored more fully, too! Historic - with many quaint shops and places to eat.
This home is 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 - a comfortable one at that.......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 - a comfortable, stress-free stay......it invites you to stay in for a lazy breakfast, a leisurely lunch, and relaxing or romantic home-style dinner .
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.....we really loved that! Absolutely hypnotic.... A perfect, perfect weekend....can't wait to return someday!
