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.

As many others have already mentioned the home is very well laid out and furnished with all the comforts of home. There is a great deal of detail in the decorating which made it fun for my wife and I to walk around and look at the interesting pieces.
My wife loves history and old books so she was extremely pleased with the Library!
We cannot wait to return when the weather is a tad bit warmer and visit some of the nearby attractions.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family!
Felt like home, but better
Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is absolutely amazing. The kids loved Big Rocks Park and Dinosaur Valley State Park. We were treated very well by the home owner and everyone in the area. Great vacation memories!
