This property has been designated as a Historic Landmark by the City of Glen Rose, Texas. Situated on a half-acre elevated bluff, 15' above the meandering Paluxy River, this Glen Rose hideaway is just blocks from many of this charming little town's favorite attractions, yet secluded enough to just hunker down, relax and recharge! The house was built in the early 1950's on the site of the Grisham Pool, the first "cement swimming hole" in Glen Rose. The sides of the original pool are still there and now form the sides of the driveway.
This recently-renovated (2013) hideaway features all of the charm of an original 1950's single-story ranch style home, made over in comfortable, casual cottage-style. The home includes all the new must-have technical conveniences including Wifi, HD Smart TV's with satellite TV, Hulu Plus account access plus a Blu-Ray DVD player and finished it off with a nice on-site library of DVD's for all to enjoy.
There's even an 8' picnic-table for your outdoor feasts and comfy chairs in the newly added, bug-free screened-in back porch which enjoys a view of the Paluxy River and tree tops from its lofty perch. If it's family time, there's a special area for board-game challenges! You definitely won't run out of things to do. Or, you can choose to do nothing and return home relaxed, recharged and refreshed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with brand new appliances (2013), flatware and table setting for twelve. A full complement of pots, pans, cooking utensils and more is ready for your use. The two renovated bedrooms feature new mattresses (purchased in November 2013); a King-sized bed in the Master Bedroom and a Queen-sized bed in the guest bedroom. Both bathrooms have also been recently remodeled, keeping a few key elements of the past (see the black and pink master-bath!) while updating all the fixtures. The views from the home are wonderful and relaxing. A recently completed 20' wall of windows looks out on trees, plants and the Paluxy River across the street. A full laundry (washer and dryer, ironing board and iron) is on-site if you want to return home with all clean clothes!
Two blocks west of the home is the historic downtown Glen Rose square anchored by the Courthouse and surrounded with two museums, two art galleries, shopping, dining (including the best pies in the state - really!) and even foods sold farm fresh from local growers.Two blocks east home is the popular Big Rocks Park where, during summer, the Paluxy River is ready for you to enjoy whether you're splashing, fishing or just relaxing. Or, take the concrete footbridge and walk safely across the Paluxy River to historic Heritage Park where homes of the original Glen Rose are on display for all to see and enjoy. On the opposite side of the street from Big Rocks Park is Glen Rose's own Oakdale Park, home of the free Bluegrass Jam music-fest! Come enjoy great Bluegrass music - search online for their schedule of events. If your stay includes the kids, we're centrally located for major local attractions like Fossil Rim, Dinosaur World and Dinosaur State Park. Each are just a few miles away by car. This home can be the perfect base-camp for your relaxing weekend away in the historic town of Glen Rose!

Great weekend get away!
Great family trip in in Glen Rose
While sitting on the screened in back porch, the view was lush, quiet and relaxing. As we did not use the fire pit, it was a nice touch to the natural landscaping of the backyard. The bathrooms although beautifully nostalgic offered modern facilities and everything you may need in case you forgot something.
You couldn't ask for a more comfortable bed to sleep in with pillow topped mattresses and fresh, clean sheets that smelled fantastic!
The WiFi and Hulu Plus on the Smart TV was just enough technology that we needed.
The Guide was VERY detailed and offered us good information from the in's and out's of the house to dining and recreational activities that helped us plan our day.
All in all, we truly felt comfortable and "at home" here and will definitely make a visit back to the Hideaway in Glen Rose!
Wow! Amazing weekend in this beautiful home!
We used this home for a girls weekend getaway. The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable - I was very impressed. Here are the highlights of the home: most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, high thread count sheets, thick plush towels, free snacks including soda, chips, cookies, etc., Hulu plus, screened-in porch, nice toiletries in case you forgot something, a discount card available for groceries. The house was immaculate and everything smelled fresh and clean.
I enjoyed this home more than my own home! The guide that the owners provided was very helpful. It included everything you needed to know and good information about restaurants, things to do and features of the house.
In every home that I have stayed in before they expected us to start the laundry, strip all the beds and do the dishes. Not here! All of that is taken care of for you!
We had so much fun during our stay. We enjoyed exploring Glen Rose and Granbury. Enjoyed some yummy food, shopped at the town square in both towns, enjoyed some Texas wine at one of the local wineries too! We intended to go out Saturday night but the screened-in porch was calling our names! We went back to the house and played a game and enjoyed wine and drinks on the porch for 4 hours! We spent most of our time at the house in the backyard or on the porch. So relaxing and quiet. Nice to get away from the city and enjoy this small town with lots of charm!
There are tons of things to-do as a family too. I will definitely be back!
