Amazing get away! They have thought of everything!!

  • 5 of 5

To say we were impressed would not even cover it! The care and detail that have gone into this VRBO are incredible. From the snacks and the water, soda etc to all the condiments and spices in the cabinets. We have stayed in several different VRBO's and this was by far the best. The bed is comfortable, the shower has great water pressure and the back porch is a delight!

Great job Nelson! You have out done yourself!!!

great retreat

As usual, our stay in Glen Rose was great. First time at this property and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It was immaculate, well appointed, and centrally located. Nelson is a wonderful host and always available for questions about the area. We will return.

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family get away. The home is clean, well kept, and perfectly appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some meals and we loved sitting outside on the screened porch to visit. The bedding was comfortable as well as the living room. There is even a game table that made the evenings fun! It is located a short walk from downtown Glen Rose and is easily accessible to many outdoor activities. The owners were extremely easy to communicate with and went out of their way to handle a couple of special requests. We will definitely stay here again!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply beautiful. So nicely decorated and very inviting. Very cool accents and love the extra details and accommodations the home owners include. Back porch is lovely with a lot of trees and its also screened in. We really enjoyed our time here and will definitely stay here again. The owners are very personable and we felt at home from the minute we arrived.

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!
