Lovely property! Comfortable and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This place is great - we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Spacious, comfortable - and they thought of everything. The baskets of snacks and toiletries are a really nice touch. We wished it wasn't quite so hot so we could really enjoy the screened porch, although my husband quite enjoyed having his coffee out there in the morning. Highly recommend!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two children (ages 4 and 7) spent the Memorial Day weekend in Glen Rose. We had the most wonderful little family vacation. This home is so cute, and the owner Nelson has included everything and more for your stay! The house is very clean, with comfortable beds, and tons of extras that really made our trip exceptional. When we arrived we were welcomed by plenty of snacks, sodas in the fridge, and lots of information about the Glen Rose area including activities, where to eat, and all the attractions. Don't worry about planning your trip because Nelson has already done it for you! After booking your trip Nelson will send you his "guide" which literally includes all information you need to know about Glen Rose so you won't miss out on anything while your there! I can't say enough great things about the property. You will notice lots of details throughout the house including wall décor and other items in the home that depict the history of Glen Rose. I really appreciated how much effort Nelson has taken to make this home one of a kind! The back porch is also fantastic, every evening we would sit with our kids and watch the fireflies light up the backyard. We also saw a little bunny hop across the yard one afternoon. It's such a special place, the home and the owner completely exceeded my expectations. You're going to have a great time 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.

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.
