A graciously cozy vacation home

  • 5 of 5

From the state of Washington to London and many stays in between this gem in Glen Rose provided the best stay ever in our rental experience. It was everything they said only better once you arrive and unwind. We really appreciated the organized guide to the property and Glen Rose, the great open layout, and complete kitchen. Every comfort was provided. Great beds, plenty of pillows, extra towels, games, and great reliable technology to feel connected when you need to check in. The deck was perfect for morning coffee or evening drinks and screened in for outdoor dining.

The location was great for exploring Glen Rose and dinosaur attractions. The town was fun and friendly. Walking to town on Grace Street we enjoyed the Historic District. So convenient to walk the river in the Heritage Park and stop at Big Rocks Park. Also loved our trip down the road to Hico and a visit to Wiseman Chocolates. Of course dinosaurs rule and we waded in the river to get the best look at those ancient footprints. We can’t thank you enough for sharing this great property. It is suited to all ages.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on our long weekend trip to Glen Rose. The house was just perfect for our family of four and two dogs. Even though we booked last minute, everything was clean and ready for our visit! And the snacks and sodas that were provided were such a treat, our kids loved them!!!! We loved playing all of the games on the table, and when we were there that's what we spent most of our time doing.

But there was so much to do, we spent a lot of time out and about. We went down to Big Rocks and climbed on the rocks and waded in the water. And we went horseback riding with Eagle Eye Ranch at Dinosaur Valley State Park.

We had our fair share of yummy food! We ate at Hammonds BBQ, Loco Coyote and La Vita in the square. All of them were great! We also got ice cream and shakes at Shoo-Fly, and pie at Pie Peddlers, both on the square.

We spent one afternoon in Granbury on the town square and had so much fun! Cute shops and you can carry a beverage around while you shop! We also went out to Revolver Brewery and enjoyed the tour and live music!

It was really a perfect trip and we can't wait to come back, and would stay here again! Thanks for everything!
