We have been to the Inn on the River 6 times over the past 20 years. We loved it as much this time as all the other times. We love to sit on the lawn behind the Inn and drink their Apricot Mango Iced tea. We bring our own wine for the evening, and the breakfast is always great. Excellent... More

My husband and I had a lovely week day night at the Inn. There was a business conference there and as the inn is small -- not a problem and not noisy. We went for R & R to recharge -- so perfect! The dinner was delicious and the staff very friendly. The only drawback was the A/C was older... More

I love that they have iced tea, water, and coffee available at all times. The room was clean and cute. Staff was very friendly, and had cookies available in the lobby. You did sometimes have to wander to the back room to get a hold of someone, but it wasn't an issue. The grounds are very nice, but not exactly... More

Thank so much for your review. Unfortunately, you were here on a Thursday and we normally do not serve dinner unless we have a corporate group on property. We do serve dinner to the public every Friday and Saturday night. Since the dinner was scheduled for the group and they requested to change their dinner time, we felt we needed... More

I cannot say enough good things about this small B&B. The food is absolutely delicious, the atmosphere serene, the service impeccable. Perfect for a date night. The rooms have no televisions, so come prepared with computers or with books. But, the rooms are absolutely quaint and charming. Feather beds on the mattresses ensure you will sleep like a baby.

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
