I had no idea that such a beautiful inn could be in a town like Glen Rose. They are located in a gorgeous spot on the river, accented with some ancient oak trees. There is a pool that we took advantage of on the hot day we were there. The innkeeper is very gracious. You will enjoy your stay there.

My husband and I just returned home from a one night stay here to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and I am already wanting to return! The entire experience was the best we have ever had at a B & B---and we've stayed in several. The innkeepers' (Mike and Lori---who are awesome!) attention to detail was what impressed me the...

This was our first stay at Inn on the River but it won't be our last. Even though the river was rising from several days of rain (chairs were swept away the night before in the rushing waters), the relaxing atmosphere never changed. From gracious hospitality to wonderful breakfast, we could not have asked for anything else...other than a few...

My husband and I enjoyed a one night stay at the end of April. The Inn is located on the river just down the street from the historic square. It was an easy, less than an hour, drive via the toll road from Fort Worth. The buildings, rooms and grounds are beautifully maintained. The hospitality so warm and inviting. We...

We had a lot of options as to where to celebrate our 40th anniversary the first weekend in April of 2016. The decision was easy because our favorite B&B was available. We've been staying at the Inn on the River in Glen Rose, TX. for many years and it has always been a most pleasant experience. This special occasion was...

This was our first trip in several years to Inn on the River. Under new owners who are delightful and knowledgeable hosts. Lovely property and building. We stopped for one night on our way to the Texas Hill Country to break up the drive. Just an hour and a half from Dallas. Perfect weekend getaway spot. Delicious home cooked breakfast....

The grounds of this property are among the most beautiful I've ever seen! Sitting in their Adirondack chairs watching the river flow, under the spreading arms of a 300 year old live oak was like a spring tonic. The staff was helpful, and provided us with some dining options as we were not there on a weekend night when dinner...

Gorgeous 100-yr old B&B on a lovely and serene part of the Brazos. Lovely hosts and servers at breakfast. The only issue (per my night-owl mother!) was no TV in rooms. Super close to Fossil Rim and Granbury.
