This very secluded country retreat is located just outside Glen Rose, a sleepy little town south and west of Fort Worth. It is about an hour and a half from nearly anywhere in the DFW Metroplex. Sitting on 12 heavily wooded acres, this location is perfect for weekend recharges or week-long romantic getaways. There is a variety of things to do including great restaurants and kid-friendly activities. This is a great close to-home vacation spot.
Glen Rose has the reputation for being a sleepy little town at the edge of the Hill Country. In most cases, that's an apt description. It's a great place to recuperate and relax.
This country retreat boasts a quick ten minute drive to the entrance 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 a few miles from the home. There is a variety of shopping and dining minutes away in downtown Glen Rose.
You will sleep comfortably on the king-size Sleep Number bed in the master bedroom downstairs. The downstairs bath features an over-sized shower while the upstairs bath has a tub/shower combination. 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. Do a web search for car/motorcycle/bicycle tour suggestions in and around Glen Rose and you'll find many breakfast runs, afternoon rides and breath-taking evening tours that are Hill Country spectacular! As a side note to this, the home is located directly on the infamous "Paluxy Pedal" cycle circuit in October. If you are a participant, book early!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 1985
We chose this home for a trip with our adult children. We spent some quality time conversing, star gazing, playing games, eating wonderful home cooked meals, playing golf, hiking, visiting Fossil Rim, and relaxing at the Loco Coyote. There was not enough time to do everything we wanted and still be able to enjoy the peaceful surroundings this home has to offer. Our only problem was deciding if leaving for an activity was important enough to draw us away from the home. The view from the living room is stunning! The home has everything you could possibly need. Did I mention you cannot see or hear a neighbor at all? Only the sounds of nature are there to sooth you. We have often thought of purchasing a home with land for a weekend retreat. No need now, Donna and Nelson have done it for us. We enjoyed every minute of our time in Glen Rose and look forward to returning.
The house and property were beautiful. Donna and Nelson went above and beyond. Since we had a late arrival it was nice having snacks and drinks waiting for us because my kids were starving! The house was very comfortable and we enjoyed taking walks every day listening to the wild turkeys.
Our family of 5 stayed at this house for a weekend escape from the hassles of life. We hit Fossil Rim, but most of the weekend was spent at the house playing cards, watching movies, and enjoying the patio as the rain pitter pattered on the roof. Already looking forward to coming back.
This property is beautiful - very quiet and secluded. Everything we could possibly need and more were included. One of the best properties we have every stayed at. Loved it and are ready to visit again.
This was our fourth trip to the Glen Rose house. We love it. It is like our home away from home. Looking forward to our next visit.
The home is spacious, relaxing, and well appointed. It was exactly what we needed. My only reservation of giving an "excellent" review is that it won't be available next time we want to stay. Thank you so much!!
