Location Details

You will be close to everything in Glen Rose, a sleepy town just outside the DFW area in North Texas. Glen Rose is where the Hill Country begins.

Just blocks away is fine dining, shopping, live music, history, galleries and even fresh food direct from the growers.

This country retreat is within 10 miles of Fossil Rim Wildlife Park, the 1700 acre drive-through zoo, perfect for the young and young at heart. Children can also enjoy a day at Dinosaur World, just 5 miles from the home. Big Rocks Park is great for wading in the water or walking along the river bed on those warm sunny days.

For some adult fun, check out Squaw Valley Golf Course. The Promise is a popular local attraction each year and is a must see if you are traveling in August-October. You won't run out of things to do here!

  • The heat!


    The owner is supposed to be calling you about a refund for us. The A/C would not work properly so we had no choice but to cancel.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Debbie, we’re sorry your stay fell short of expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -Texas is suffering from a prolonged heat wave with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for weeks. As a result, power providers request that users set their thermostats to 78 degrees between the hours of 2 pm and 7 pm to avoid electric grid overload.
    -You booked your stay last minute, and when we were notified of your reservation, we immediately turned on our A/C for your arrival.
    -When you arrived, it was at 77 degrees, which you were not comfortable with.
    -We offered many measures to make you comfortable, but you asked to leave.
    -We respected your choice, and you did receive a refund.
    -We'd like to note, that a few hours after you left, the house did get to 71 degrees.
    We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!

  • Great location!


    My husband and I just spent the weekend here and really enjoyed it. The house was clean, had everything we needed, and was located only minutes from most restaurants and activities in Glen Rose. We spent two days hiking in Dinosaur Valley State Park and this was a perfect location for us. We really appreciated all the additional drinks and snacks the host made available to us. I highly recommend!

  • Making memories


    My sister and I recently took our mom away for the weekend and rented Nelson’s cottage. You can’t go wrong with this one!! He emailed detailed “welcome” instructions and things to do which was so helpful. The house is clean, accommodating and a great location to everything. They have it well stocked with snacks and necessities. We enjoyed the town but spent as much time just hanging at the house playing games and talking. Perfect rental for a girls weekend, a couple’s weekend or a quick getaway with a family of 3-4. Thanks for letting us stay there. We will be back!!!

  • Wonderful experience from beginning to end


    Our small four-person family spent a weekend here and it was absolutely a top-notch experience. From the initial communication with the property owner (who sent a great packet of info about the area when we booked) to the AC being turned on prior to our arrival, to the better-than-most selection of kitchen items and snacks, every part of our stay was comfortable and uncomplicated. We found the Glen Rose area absolutely magical--kinda like a little slice of Hill Country up in North Texas. The house is conveniently located to anything you might need as well. We highly recommend this property if you're looking for a great getaway in Glen Rose.
