“As always, Awesome, so are the owners!”
Reviewed 17 September 2010

I'm writing partly as a response to a previous review. My husband and I have stayed at the Paluxy cabins multiple times over several years. We have always had a great experience and the owners, John and Karen, have always been tremendous! Very welcoming, very warm and very accommodating. I can assume there must be more to the story of the bad review because that just doesn't sound like them. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway from the hubbub of normal life. Very private, scenic, quiet... and, oh yeah, the hot tub!!

Thank you for standing up for us on a bad review.
As we all know there are two sides to the story...we are just not going to open this one up for discussion. But we were within our right to collect the money in good faith on our end.
We apppreciate your honesty and faith in us and hope to see you again soon.

We stayed at these cabins in May and it was great. Our only complaint was about the way they removed the money from my account, but it all worked out OK even though it's a business account. But, we tried to stay again and apparently they don't appreciate return customers. By email we asked if we could send a check in to hold the cabin for us and was told by email "no problem" . Then less than a week from our reservation they removed money from my business account with no authorization (they used our CC info from the last visit) from me at all. When my wife called them, the man was very rude to her and said it was our fault, when she said just to cancel our reservation he said it was less than 7 days to the reservations so he had to charge us anyway.

The cabins are great, but the owners are very rude and ruthless. BE VERY VERY WARY OF THESE PEOPLE!!!

This was the most relaxing, cleanest cabin ever! We stayed in the Cliff Cabin built in 2002 and it was beautiful! The first thing that comes to mind when describing this cabin was, clean clean clean! The owners obviously care about the property and made every effort to keep each cabin secluded from the other. Each cabin has a hot tub, and a nice wooden porce to relax on. The bed was king size and very comfortable. It was a nice suprise to find out the kitchen was supplied with cups, silverware, plates, salt and pepper, knifes, and more. We also got the privilage to meet Barnie the raccoon that lives on the property.
This was the best stay ever and we will go back again!

  • Liked — The whole thing!!!!
  • Disliked — Shower was small, but what do you expect...

John and Karen Wells have put alot of effort into this set of lovely cabins southwest of Fort Worth in Glen Rose Texas. The setting is natural, secluded and welcoming. Doing business with Karen and John is a breeze. The Cedars Cabin, one or the four on property, was just what we needed for a relaxing, romantic 15th anniversay get-away. The interior appointments were very nicely done, comfortable, tasteful and functional. The break fast service of muffins and juice was underwhelming, but other breakfast cafe's nearby offer great options, as well as the well appointed kitchenet in the cabin to make your own yummy food. The private hot-tub on the porch was in top notch condition and just what we needed for a relaxing and romantic mood. The upstairs king size bedroom offered ample space to spread out and the sunset view off the upper balcony with a glass of champagne killer in June.
Hats off to John and Karen, I'm tellin' my friends ( or maybe keep it secret!) that Paluxy Riverbed cabins is the place to enjoy in Glen Rose!

  • Liked — top notch private hot tub, great balcony, secluded, quiet

I had't seen a recent review so I was a bit nervous. Not to fear it is still wonderful. It is so peaceful and beautiful. We saw no one for 3 days. Well except for a family of tubers on the river. They didnt see us though. The cabins are almost hidden. No TV so my husband and I actually talked! You can get a TV and movies if you want. Hot tub on porch was awesome. Muffins and juice tasted wonderful. Highly recommend for couples. I wont tell you our favorite cabin so you wont book it up!

  • Liked — The privacy and hot tub.
  • Disliked — Had to leave to eat unless you brought food.

We stayed at the Paluxy River Bed Cabins on July 10-12 and were engaged on the 11th! We stayed in the Cedar house and had a really lovely time. The place was very clean and private and the hot tub was awesome! John was instrumental in helping my fiance plan the engagement. He set the scene with vases of roses and rose petals on the porch. It was perfect!

We spent our 18th anniversary at Paluxy River Bed Cabins, and I can honestly say it was the most relaxing and wonderful weekend of my life. Trees surround the cabin so you feel isolated from the rest of the world. We loved the big rocking chairs and hot tub on the covered porch. There's no TV or phone but we certainly didn't miss them. It's private, clean, beautifully decorated, air conditioned, and even has a small kitchen area. We are going back on our 19th anniversary and probably every one from now on.
