Nelson and his wife do such a great job with all of their properties to make you feel right at home. Their attention to detail is wonderful and they truly make every effort to make your stay enjoyable. Every time we are in Glen Rose, we stay with Nelson!

Adorable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful weekend getaway for Spring Break. The owners made our stay so comfortable with lovely little touches of home. It was helpful that there was already a pack-n-play with sheets and a booster chair there at the home for my toddler. The fact we could walk through the adorable historic neighborhood to get to the town square made us feel like a local. We spent so much time out on the screened in back porch rocking and enjoying the beautiful weather! We loved our stay in Glen Rose!!! We will be back!

Glen Rose treasure

  • 5 of 5

Of all of the cabins we've stayed in during our Texas road trips south of Dallas, this property is hands down the most welcoming and well-appointed. The owners truly keep this cabin to the standard of a family home away from home. We highly recommend it not only for the accolades mentioned above but for the exhaustive pre-arrival support they provide as well. Gracious hosts and a memorable stay.

Amazing get away! They have thought of everything!!

  • 5 of 5

To say we were impressed would not even cover it! The care and detail that have gone into this VRBO are incredible. From the snacks and the water, soda etc to all the condiments and spices in the cabinets. We have stayed in several different VRBO's and this was by far the best. The bed is comfortable, the shower has great water pressure and the back porch is a delight!

Great job Nelson! You have out done yourself!!!
