The Space

Glen Rose, about an hours drive from either Dallas or Fort Worth, has the reputation for being a sleepy little town at the edge of the Hill Country. In most cases, that's an apt description. It's definitely a great place to recuperate, recharge, renew, relax and reflect. It's also a great place to vacation, dine and kick up your heels if you know where to go!

Our very secluded country retreat is perfect for your base of operations. It boasts a quick ten minute drive to the entrance of Fossil Rim Wildlife Park, the 1700 acre drive-through zoo featuring giraffes, exotic animals and even some rhinos. Fossil Rim is perfect for the young and young at heart. We're also just a few miles from Dinosaur World and just minutes from dining and shopping in historic downtown Glen Rose.

We have a wonderful king size bed (Sleep Number bed) downstairs in the Master Bedroom and a very comfortable queen-sized bed upstairs in the guest suite. We also have two (brand new) very comfortable twin beds upstairs to accommodate two additional guests (adults or kids) if needed. The downstairs bath features an over-sized shower while the upstairs bath has a tub/shower combination.

The home sits on 12+ heavily wooded acres and has a HUGE patio and lots of seating (both rocking chairs plus a picnic table) for guests. The indoor dining table seats ten comfortably and the full-sized kitchen is nicely equipped.

Spectacular views from the family room and both porches make this a wonderful place for seclusion and tranquility.

Perfect for family get-togethers, scrapbooking weekends and the like, this secluded home comfortably seats over 35 people indoors and out, with eating facilities for over 20 at a time.

As a side note, if you love to drive (or, live to ride), Glen Rose is an amazing area to enjoy. Do a web search for car/motorcycle/bicycle tour suggestions in and around Glen Rose and you'll find many breakfast runs, afternoon rides and breath-taking evening tours that are Hill Country spectacular! As a side note to this, our home is located RIGHT ON the infamous "Paluxy Pedal" cycle circuit in October. If you are a participant, book early!

My name is Nelson Roberts and I would be pleased to have you enjoy any of my relaxing country homes.

I am a supplier of cool consumer electronic products to large retailers like Walmart, Costco, BestBuy, Sam's Club et al. It keeps my weeks (and most weekends) pretty busy, so when I get a chance to relax, I retreat to Glen Rose! It's small-town charm with lots to do.

I collect antique office equipment (typewriters, adding machines, check protectors and the like) and our homes reflect my love of books

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
