Clean and beautiful place to stay in Glen Rose! The innkeepers are very welcoming and the place is very clean and quiet. We stayed downstairs in a corner room and were not bothered by traffic, footsteps overhead or any of the other minor issues mentioned by other reviewers. We also enjoyed the breakfast - didn't have time for the dinner... More

This was our second visit to the Inn. We will not wait so long to return! There is something magical about in adirondack chairs under the 300 year old oak trees watching slowly flowing river and plethora of birds and lightning bugs for hours on end. There are no TVs or other distractions to take you away from a great... More

My husband and I decided on a quick trip to Glen Rose to visit Fossil Rim. Because it was Memorial Day weekend, several of the B & B's were sold out. We opted for Inn on the River, queen room overlooking the garden. We were so glad that we did. The room was comfortable and sweet, the view was beautiful,... More

My husband and I have been staying here for almost 20-years. As always, it was peaceful and relaxing, with excellent service. Not only do we enjoy the excellent breakfasts, we look forward to the special dinners overlooking beautiful grounds with 300-year-old trees. Our favorite moments are observing nature sitting on the river banks under the trees. Again, an excellent anniversary... More

We did a Girl's Weekend for 6 moms. We found the Inn to be a beautiful place with outdoor sitting areas and open grounds down by the river. The girl's weekend package included a Margarita night in the little building by the river. We hung on the porch, drank Margaritas and enjoyed fruit and crackers and enjoyed our beautiful views...
