My husband and I came to Glen Rose, Texas and stayed here on a whim, maybe around 7 years ago when we were undergrads looking to get away for the weekend and check out the curiosities of Glen Rose, Texas. We were so enamoured by the city, we're looking to purchase a vacation/retirement home on the Paluxy. We caught the fossil hunting bug from Mr. Bussey when we first came and had so much fun staying in the Cowboy Bunk. I love it that we don't have breakfast with any of the other tenants, as I am not a morning person at all and can't be counted on to have a coherent conversation prior to 10 am. We've brought our girls back each time and my oldest came when she was 4 and still remembered the toys Mr. Bussey gave her. I enjoy reminiscing with Mrs. Bussey about the changes in Glen Rose, and love their recommendations.
The location can't be beat since it's within walking distance to downtown Glen Rose (which sparkles at night and has a nice little night life now) and picking pecans when they're in season was really fun. Also, going fossil hunting with Mr. Bussey was especially fun despite the warm weather.
I really enjoy our jaunts to Glen Rose and the customer service is exceptional and there's no comparison. Our daughters enjoy pampering Abby the dog and we enjoy the solitude of the BnB with just enough pampering from our very attentive hosts.
Also, the fossil hunts and Mr. Bussey's knowledge of the area and in paleontology are very interesting and educational.
