We planned to take our children and grandchildren on a trip to celebrate our 40th anniversary - they of course were all hoping for a grand cruise somewhere. I think they were silently disappointed when we told them we had found our "dream" destination at a farm in Glen Rose, TX! We found the Inn over a year ago and knew then that everyone would have a great weekend. We booked the Main house and the Prairie house for 2 nights. Although the accomodations describe "sleeps 12" (Main house) or "sleeps 8" (Prairie house), we knew that wouldn't be the case for us, as all of us own King Size beds and the beds at the Inn are all doubles. That said, there was plenty of sleeping space for the 12 of us between the 2 houses, including one Aerobed we brought with us. The one disappointment was the Big Rocks watering hole of the Paluxy River. We assumed we would spend the entire afternoon in the river. The property had access to the River, but our family found it difficult with small children due to slimy rocks and mud entry...next time we go, we will bring water hose play equipment as there are hose connections all over the property and that would certainly have satisfied our grandchilren as well as cooled us all off. The kids were happy to be outside with the animals and the playyard. The adults were happy to be in the shade and play table games. As for meals, breakfast in the barn was more than we expected for a continental breakfast. We brought our own dinner for the first night and went to Ranch House Barbeque the second night...good bbq but they were already out of major items by 6 PM. We can't wait to plan the next trip there, maybe in the cooler seasons. I'd be happy to chat with you about our weekend if you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
