The cute cottage is just 15 minutes from either Fossil Rim or Dinosaur World, and even less to golfing and the Glen Rose Expo Center. It's also a short walk to downtown Glen Rose where you'll find dining, shopping and museums.
Our comfortable getaway is the perfect place to recharge, renew and relax!
Just off the meandering Paluxy River (a short walking distance) and a couple of blocks from the historic Glen Rose downtown square, you'll find shopping, dining, live music and fresh produce under the large shade trees in this traditional Texas downtown square. The perfect alternative to a hotel room - especially when you sit out in the large screened-in patio - with nothing but trees between you and the river!
Glen Rose is a sleepy little town a little over an hour's drive from Dallas and about an hour from most of Tarrant County. Glen Rose is known for it's great little restaurants, live music, Dinosaur tracks in the Dinosaur Valley State Park and well-known attractions like Fossil Rim (the 1500 acre drive through zoo where you hand-feed the animals) and Dinosaur World, where the massive creatures are recreated in ways you won't believe. A perfect blend of relaxation, renewal and, if you're so inclined, maybe even a bit of kicking up your heels.
Downtown Glen Rose, like so many other small Texas towns, is a "square" with our courthouse in the center and shopping/dining, museums and art galleries surrounding on all sides. Our home is just a couple of blocks east of downtown, really easy to find.
We're also less than a mile from Big Rock Park, an area of the Paluxy River where kids can enjoy a great time and parents can walk the river on special sidewalks established for an easy view of historic Glen Rose. Well worth the walk and the time - and it's free.
If you're coming to participate in an event at the Somervell County Expo Center, we're just a short 5 minute drive away. Whether it's roping, riding, wrestling (livestock) or racing, we're a great base of operations.
There's also a great spot nearby for you shotgun lovers. The Lone Star Sporting Clays, home of multiple NSCA events is about a 10 minute drive and is setup for the recreational shooter or hard core competitor.
And if you're a (pedal power) cyclist, our home is a great starting point for the Paluxy Pedal bike ride through Glen Rose.
However, if you're a cyclist (with something more than just pedals), Glen Rose is a great destination location for day-long or weekend long rides and we're minutes from anywhere you want to visit.
High-speed internet (Wi-Fi) is available on-site just in case it's a workcation (yeah, I made it up) and you have to stay connected!
Come visit historic Glen Rose Texas and make our home your base-camp for a weekend or longer!
