This completely renovated 1950's ranch-style home sits on a secluded 1/2 acre bluff, with a wall of windows overlooking a small section of the Paluxy River, just a few blocks from historic downtown Glen Rose.

Whether you plan to visit Fossil Rim, enjoy the music at Oakdale Park, see the recreations at Dinosaur World, participate in a bike-challenge or picnic at Heritage Park, this home is centrally located in the historic district, just minutes away from your adventure.

The space
Situated on a half-acre elevated bluff, 15' above the meandering Paluxy River, this Glen Rose hideaway is just blocks from many of this charming little town's favorite attractions, yet secluded enough to just hunker down, relax and recharge!

Our home was built in the early 1950's on the site of the beloved Grisham Pool, the first "cement swimming hole" in Glen Rose. As a matter of fact, this property has been designated as a Historic Landmark by the City of Glen Rose, Texas! The sides of the original pool are still there and now form the sides of our driveway.

Two blocks west of our home is the historic downtown Glen Rose square anchored by our Courthouse and surrounded with two museums, two art galleries, shopping, dining (including the best pies in the state; really) and even foods sold farm fresh from local growers.

Two blocks east of our home is the popular Big Rocks Park where, during summer, the Paluxy River is ready for you to enjoy whether you're splashing, fishing or just relaxing.

Or, take the concrete footbridge and walk safely across the Paluxy River to historic Heritage Park where homes of the original Glen Rose are on display for all to see and enjoy.

On the opposite side of the street from Big Rocks Park is Glen Rose's own Oakdale Park, home of the free Bluegrass Jam music-fest! Come enjoy great Bluegrass music - search online for their schedule of events.

If your stay includes the kids, we're centrally located for major local attractions like Fossil Rim, Dinosaur World and Dinosaur State Park. Each are just a few miles away by car.

This recently-renovated hideaway features all of the charm of an original 1950's single-story ranch style home made over in comfortable, casual cottage-style.

I've also added all the new must-have technical conveniences including high-speed Internet (Wi-Fi), Smart TV's (HD of course) with satellite TV plus a Blu-Ray DVD player and finished it off with a nice on-site library of DVD's for all to enjoy.

There's even an 8' picnic table for your outdoor feasts and comfy chairs in the newly added, bug-free screened-in back porch which enjoys a view of the Paluxy River and tree tops from its lofty perch.

If it's family time, there's a special area for board-game challenges! You definitely won't run out of things to do. Or, you can choose to do nothing and return home relaxed, recharged and refreshed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, flatware and table setting for twelve. A full complement of pots, pans, cooking utensils and more is ready for your use.

The renovated bedrooms feature really comfy mattresses; a King size bed in the Master Bedroom and a Queen-size bed in the guest bedroom and outbuilding.

All bathrooms have also been recently remodeled, keeping key elements of the past (see the black and pink master-bath), while updating all the fixtures.

The views from the main home are wonderful and relaxing. A recently completed 20' wall of windows looks out on trees, plants and the Paluxy River across the street.

A full laundry (washer and dryer, ironing board and iron) is on-site if you want to return home with all clean clothes...

This home can be the perfect base-camp for your relaxing weekend away in the historic town of Glen Rose!
