Texas Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

Glen Rose, Texas

Spend your next family vacation or get together with friends at this beautiful 2 bedroom home in Glen Rose. The home was completely remodeled in 2012 with a relaxing screened-in porch that you'll find perfect for that morning cup of coffee or even relaxing with friends and family in the evenings. You are just a short distance away from both adult and kid-friendly attractions!

Just 2 blocks east of historic downtown Glen Rose, this home is comfortable with a fully-equipped kitchen for your favorite home-cooked meals and even a laundry room. Dining for 8 at the main table with additional room for more both inside and out make this a perfect place for reconnecting with friends and family. You can select a Blu-Ray film from the collection to watch on the large flat-screen TV or choose from one of the board games for a little family fun. The home is well appointed and serves as the owners second-home on weekends when not rented.

You will be close to everything in Glen Rose, a sleepy town just outside the DFW area in North Texas. Glen Rose is where the Hill Country begins. Just blocks away is fine dining, shopping, live music, history, galleries and even fresh food direct from the growers. 

This country retreat is within 10 miles 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 5 miles from the home. Big Rocks Park is great for wading in the water or walking along the river bed on those warm sunny days.

You won't run out of things to do here!

Great rental in a great town

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 4 with kids ages 5 and 8) spent 4 days at this property. The house is wonderfully located within a short drive of several activities perfect for our age of kids. Favourites included, Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World, Big Rocks Park and Fossil Rim Safari park.

The house itself is spotless and extremely well equipped with everything you could need for your stay, down to toiletries, dog bowls, snacks and games.

The guide left by the owner was very useful and took the guess work out of what to do and where to eat. This lead to a stress free fun long weekend.

Highly recommended.

Glen Rose cabin

The cabin at Glen Rose was well maintained with plenty of linens and a wonderful screened in back porch. The cabin is a must stay if you are traveling to Glen Rose!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Glen Rose with our dog and our young kids for two nights over Spring Break. The location was great - halfway between Big Rocks Park (which we went to 3 days in a row!) and downtown. The cottage itself was perfect for our needs. We spent most of our time on the screened-in deck. The kitchen was extremely well-stocked (better than any other VRBO place we have stayed.) My kids loved trying a different cereal each morning. We also played a lot of checkers, cards, and shut-the-box.The house was clean, cozy, and had a great big backyard. I wish the backyard was fenced as the road gets a lot of traffic, but that's just a minor quibble.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our grandchildren for Spring Break and enjoyed the cottage in Glen Rose so very much. I have had many other vacation rentals, but this one was just as described. I have already recommended it to friends and look forward to staying there again. My only recommendation is for a drive entrance that is a little more off the main road. It had rained and was a bit muddy... would have felt safer in getting kids in and out of the van if we'd have a driveway. Still, it was a wonderful 5-star experience.

Excellent Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We took our 4.5 year old and 15 month old sons to Glen Rose for a short family getaway. Upon booking, we quickly received an email from the owner giving us a complete "Guide" to the house and the locale. The house is WONDERFUL! The owner has thought of everything: snacks on the counter to take on outings, easy lunch meals in the cupboard, coffee/creamer, spices and butter for cooking dinner. With the ages of our kids, we intended to eat most meals at the house and the amenities made that goal easy. As for other aspects of the house, the owner has taken no shortcuts/cheap routes: everything is high end (super comfortable bed, I'm guessing a tempurpedic), quality furniture, Smart TV/blu ray player/DVDs for kids and adults alike, toiletry essentials a traveler may forget, laundry essentials, and a pack N play for babies. The water pressure in the house is also fantastic. Best of all, the house is within 4-5 miles of all the major attractions. Easy, relaxing trip - We had a great time! Thank you!!
