This was our first and not our last visit to Glen Rose. Our stay at Inn on the River was wonderful. We were welcomed by very friendly and accommodating staff. They go the extra mile to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. The pool was a much needed way to relax and cool off surrounded by the beautiful... 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...

We enjoyed our stay and would recommended the inn to friends. Clean and comfortable room, great breakfast, and excellent location for walking to the river, restaurants and to the town square. The group meeting building has the best deck and river view, so recommend visiting when there is no group there.

My 4 sisters and I celebrated a birthday at the Inn. The entire experience was awesome. The setting by the Paluxy River is serene. The rooms & public areas are beautiful. The staff is gracious and helpful. I look forward to returning to the Inn, and I've already recommended it to many friends.

Stayed in Room 1 with a wonderful sitting room and private entry to the backyard garden. Joy, the Inn Keeper was so nice and accommodating. We had the 4-course dinner, that was superb. And breakfast both days was great. What a relaxing atmosphere, with lovely grounds. We will definitely return!

We have stayed at the In on the River three times and have always found the inn to be spotless. The rooms are spotless though some of them are quite small.
