We stayed for two nights around New Year's Eve and had a blast. We had a few families with kids ranging from 5 years to 18 months. It is a lodge rental, not a hotel stay. Staying two nights was great because it allowed us to settle in and really enjoy the lodge. The kids loved waking up to see deer all around and hearing the wolves howling at night.
You can purchase beer, wine and hard alcohol at the bar that is on the honor system. It was not well stocked if you have some heavy drinkers. But it was good for a couple of drinks at the end of the day.
It has two large great rooms with fireplaces that are stocked with wood and games and is a great place to relax.
It has a full kitchen along with a nice sized grill on the deck. I would recommend to bring some food to cook/grill because it is about a 10 - 15 minute ride to get to a restaurant (you can also have pizza delivered). Breakfest was 4 or 5 minute car ride away at a dining facility where they also have the permanent tents.
Glen Rose has a couple of fun places to eat. Holleywood and Vine was great (go outside to eat) and the kids loved the atmosphere. Ranch House BBQ had some good bbq.
