Perfect weekend getaway spot!

Everything you could need was provided for us. We especially enjoyed the screened in back porch...we found it especially inviting and restful. The house was beautifully decorated and immaculate. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

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!

Nice, open floor plan with plenty of room. Great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend getaway in Glen Rose at a great home. Truly a home away from home. Great place to kick off your shoes and just relax or take a stroll to downtown or Big Rocks. Owners take pride in providing a great atmosphere. We fell in love with Glen Rose and this home will be our 1st choice in many return trips!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location, walking distance from downtown eateries. We leveraged "the book" provided by owners to pick all our meals and activities for our trip and they were all great choices. Our kid ate more of her fair share of snacks in the stocked pantry, but they were appreciated. Coffee in the morning in the screened in back patio was relaxing. High speed internet was great for us to stream the Formula 1 race Sunday evening and not have to wait to see who won. Plenty of games on the table to play that we had never seen before. Nicely renovated house with every amenity you could want. We'll be back!
