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!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 1985
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.
Was everything is was stated to be and more. Very well maintained and perfect location. Perfect for families. Will be visiting again!
Thank you Nelson for making our stay comfortable. The beverages; snacks and toiletries were VERY well stocked. The house was beautiful; great views; we enjoyed the wilderness. Definitely exceeds expectations.
We would definitely come back again and would highly recommend your house to our family and friends.
We truly enjoyed our stay. The kids enjoyed playing outside and running around and we loved relaxing in the spacious living room after sight seeing in Glen Rose.
We absolutely loved this property! Our grandkids want us to buy it! Nelson has provided everything a renter could possibly want or need. We have stayed at many vacation rentals this one exceeded our expectations. Loved, loved it!
Great house in a secluded area. The owner was very accommodating-let us check in early and willing to late us check out late. The house had everything that we needed. I definitely recommend and would stay here again.
