“Relaxed family Thanksgiving”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We loved the house and the outdoors. Our host Nelson, is great. The house was full of snacks, drinks and other practical stuff. It felt like being in a good friends home.
The house is very comfortable, spacious and fully equipped. We stayed in for diner all evenings.
The outdoors is fabulous. We all enjoyed it very much. Long walks, played hide and seek, played ball games and relaxed on the patio.
The only downside for my teenagers....no internet.

“Great views, great home and pet friendly.”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Home is beautiful and in secluded location, but still close to area attractions. I would not hesitate to stay at the home again. The home is pet friendly which makes it great for your "furry" family. All the restaurants in "the Guide" were great. Just make sure to check business hours, especially if you stay on a Sunday; places close earlier.

“Better than we could have hoped for”

My wife and I took our twin boys (4) to Glen Rose and stayed on the property.

The house was absolutely gorgeous located away from the city of Glen Rose, but close enough to get into town quickly.

We did have a few issues including the AC not cooling on the first night, but we contacted Nelson (homeowner) who called out the AC repair service. Nelson was preparing to put us up in a hotel for the night when the AC people showed up to save the day.

When we left we looked everywhere for a stuffed woolly mammoth named "Banana." I let Nelson know that we weren't able to find him. A few hours later we start receiving texts that he had been found, but was "hungry and ready to see his family." We received texts announcing his journey. Nelson promised to mail Banana home to the delight of an upset 4 year old.

I enjoyed everything about the property and hope to take a trip back in the not too distant future.

“Family Weekend to remember”

What a pleasure to spend a wonderful weekend with our family at such a beautiful home. I call it a home not a house because the owner is so thoughtful that he makes you feel as if you are a guest in his home. This lovely place has a view you will remember and a beautifully appointed interior with every thing you might need. Thank you for making this a family weekend we will remember for a long time.

“It Has It All!”

From the first contact to make our reservations right up to the day of check out, communications with the owner were prompt and complete in every detail. Nothing was forgotten when our needs were thought of, even coffee was there for us to start off our first day which was so appreciated.
This beautiful style of this residence only compliments it's location. Nestled in a surrounding of beautiful acres of trees and brush, it provided privacy, peacefulness and serenity of complete rest in its surroundings while it offered convenience to the areas of Glen Rose and Granbury, As I am not one that likes 'early morning talk', the upstairs Master Ensuite was perfect to allow for my first morning cup of coffee alone & in 'quietness' , while the downstairs spacious living area gave us ample room to be very comfortable. Thank you for providing your lovely residence for our stay.

This may be the best vacation house we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean. It was secluded on 12 acres, but easy to find - with the directions provided in the wonderful Guide that Nelson and CJ sent to us.
Just down the road from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve....which we enjoyed fully with our kids and grandbabies!
This home is soooo relaxing......we have stayed in very few "better than my home" rentals or hotels these last few years....but this one....was just that -we just wished we could just stay on & on!
Loved the obvious care and love that Nelson and CJ take to make you feel welcome. The pantry had coffee, snacks, and everything you need for everyday life - a comfortable one at that.......plus - good quality linens, plenty of towels, this is a home that will feel like your own home when you walk in - with lovely furnishings and a thoughtful decor. But it is very family friendly and kid–friendly, too.
The kitchen was lovely – with all you would need for a great weekend comfortable, stress-free stay......it invites you to stay in for the for a lazy breakfast, a leisurely lunch, and relaxing home-style dinner .
The beds were the best we have ever slept on in a vacation rental!
But the best thing of all for me was that wall of windows.....we really loved that! Absolutely hypnotic.... A perfect, perfect weekend....a good time was had by all!
