From the moment you walk in the door, until you walk out the door to leave you are taken care of. The staff is unbelievably kind and attentive. The grounds are so nice you feel no reason to even go anywhere. But you should, the little town of Glen Rose is a nice getaway to do just what the sign says, "dine, shop and relax" my wife is a vegetarian and I only told them once when arrived and the entire weekend throughout shift changes they took extra care to insure she was taken care of. We will be going back on our next Harley ride through Glen Rose.

We go here often and it is a quiet place with excellent food. It is a perfect retreat. Sit on the bank of the river and watch nature.

I have stayed here several times and had the same inviting warm welcome I had before. This time was a last minute booking with dinner reservations. We stayed in Room #1 and it was comfortable overlooking backyard area. Dinner was superb with great choices and service was great. They even made a fruit plate for my husband in place of dessert. .because he is diabetic. We left full and walked downtown Glen Rose to settle our dinner. We sat along the river after that and gazed at the stars. Overall a great respite treat for me and my hubby. The Inn on the River helped with that.

We are expected that is for sure and they make work out off it
nice pool with a lot of squirrels
An impressive tree under witch indians camps 300 years ago , and i believe it
The breakfast , never seen so much care about it

Those people know what it is to feel at home

For diner check the restaurant in opposite
The liquer policy is from the year 1930 but they know how to deal with that
For us coming from the netherlans it is a big laugh how they avoid this ploicy
Check the restaurant Riverhouse Grill it is great

We are happy to have River House Grill across the street from the Inn. Our guest enjoy dining with them when our dining room is not open.

We have been going to this lovely old country Inn for over 20 years..It is still and always will be one of the finest in every way.. Dinner is served Friday and Saturday with reservations. You can bring you own wine and no corking fee is charged...It is not required that you stay at the Inn to have dinner, but a night or two on a cozy comfy feather bed ..leaves a warm and toasty feeling..
Plan a corporate retreat..Perfect Place...
..You will soon be going over and over again...It has a way of calling you to return!!
and Yes we are returning in January

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!...Your positive comments are so appreciated and we are so pleased that Inn On The River has met your needs. Repeat and loyal guest is one of the best compliments that one can receive. And you are so right, the Inn and it's conference center is a wonderful place for a productive group meeting.
