What a beautiful cabin! We so enjoyed our stay at Glen Rose Getaway. The owners are VERY good communicators. The document that they sent us before our stay was invaluable while we were there. The owners also responded very quickly to any additional questions that I had. The cabin was very well-stocked (our son particularly loved the sugary cereals and seemingly endless sodas!). The location is very centralized to all of the Glen Rose attractions. The beds were comfy, the cabin was spotless, and we loved the Smart TV for relaxing when it was too hot outside! We can't wait to visit again!

We traveled to Glen Rose over the July 4th weekend. This house is conveniently located near all the local attractions. Home is nicely updated and extremely comfortable. Owners made us feel welcomed with a helpful information packet and supplying all the comforts of home. We enjoyed spending time at the house playing games and sitting on the back porch. The house is located on a main street in Glen Rose. But, with the bedrooms in the back, we had no noise issues. If visiting Glen Rose, we recommend staying at this home.
“Absolutely Blown away...can't wait to come back!”

Nelson, you and CJ are definitely in the right business because there was nothing we needed that you didn't already think of. You have paid so much attention to detail, it was almost like I never left home. Scott and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary and get out of dodge and this was just perfect for us! We will definitely be back and I intend to tell everyone about our experience here. Again, thank you for making our anniversary weekend a wonderful experience. You two are the best and the King and Queen of hospitality and Southern comfort.
Thank you for the great feedback, Drew! We're so happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience, and we'd love to have you back again anytime! Cheers!
“Very clean and updated with all the comforts of home.”

It was just perfect for us. We have 2 dogs and a 2 1/2 yr old, there were
Dog bowls and sippy cups. Screened in porch was safe too.
It was centrally located to the attractions so getting around was easy.
Only complaint is that Barnard is a pretty busy street, and at times
We felt a little close to the road.
Thank you for the wonderful review Jennifer! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the home. We are sorry to hear that you felt that the street was a little busy for your liking -- that is certainly understandable. However, we're glad to hear that the vacation was otherwise perfect for you! We hope to have you back again sometime soon!
