**Book NOW! Buy 2 Nights and get the 3rd night FREE for any travel dates between 2/6 - 2/28/17!** 

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!

This property is beautiful - very quiet and secluded. Everything we could possibly need and more were included. One of the best properties we have every stayed at. Loved it and are ready to visit again.

Beautiful!

The home is spacious, relaxing, and well appointed. It was exactly what we needed. My only reservation of giving an "excellent" review is that it won't be available next time we want to stay. Thank you so much!!

Secluded and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we were expecting and looking forward to. It was quiet and beautiful. My husband and I along with our 2 year old son came to stay the weekend to get away from everything and celebrate my birthday. There was plenty of room for us and the directions were easy to follow to find the property. We were able to go into Stephenville one night and experience the Lone Star Family Pumpkin Farm and then stayed closer to the property the rest of the weekend. The house had everything we needed. We loved watching the sunset and seeing all of the stars! Hope to come back again!

Quiet, gorgeous, spacious

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed in this house for a long weekend and loved every minute of it. The house is open and spacious. The large picture window looks over trees. The sunset view is spectacular and the stars at night are magical. We drove to Fossil Rim and Dinosaur Valley State Park, which added to the fun of the weekend.
