Properties don't get ANY better than this one!
We stayed for a long weekend over JUL 23-26, 2013. It was 2 adults and 4 kids. AMPLE sleeping and bathroom space for our entire group! This home is decorated in impeccable style and with all the modern comforts of home, if not BETTER! They do allow pets and provide a kennel. However, if you don;t like pets, there is no evidence of any ever being there since they clean the home so well.
The kitchen is great with a gas top range to cook on and plenty of refrigerator space so you can bring your own food for some meals. They provide snacks and sodas complimentary with your rental.There is a sleep numbers bed with excellent linens in the Master BR and two day beds with a double bed in a secondary bedroom up stairs. The A/C Works like a dream!
The owners, Nelson and CJ have a gorgeous secluded property here...it is a must see. Our kiddos take their air rifles, bb guns and air soft pistols to shoot tin cans. Don't let the secluded location fool you! The property is about a 4 minute drive from Fossil Rim and the view is spectacular as you drive up the hills.You can easily lunch at the Fossil Rim Cafe and enjoy the petting zoo and over look area to see the giraffes for free!
There are tons of wildlife just roaming on the property...deer and hummingbirds are a daily occurrence and the star gazing at night is out of this world.
It is a 7 minute drive into town to dine at Hollywood and Vine (Live music on the weekends...excellent time!) or a 15 minute drive to Loco Coyote our favorite BBQ joint in town with beer by the pitchers and the pig out platter for 2 that can feed 4+.
Dinosaur Valley is a 20 minutes drive tops and don't forget to check the Sommervill EXPO center website for weekend events such as the Riflemen's competition or the Rodeo. Many of those events are free and provide fun Western entertainment for families.
If you are diving in from FTW, it is only 1 hour 20 minutes to the property. The home is just exceptional and If you have not been to Glen Rose, GO! This is a fabulous, quaint town with rolling hills and gorgeous views! Staying at this property is a must!
Nelson provides you with a detailed, multipaged "personalized for you" booklet for the property with all the eating and shopping locations as well as many other details. They make staying with them easy and their attention to detail is exceptional.
