This bed and breakfast is located out in the middle of the smallest town i have ever been to. There is not much at all to do here. I went for a weekend retreat and while the food was good and the service was good, the rooms was very old and outdated. They were furnished in antiques and old times... More

You must experience the laid back, extra relaxed, soooooo enjoyable kinda stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. No televisions ............just a beautiful property, where you can sit, relax, take a walk, share conversations with other guests, and totally enjoy the Inn Keeper's personalities and innate abilities to make their guests feel like they're at home. Breakfast is sooooo delicious.... More

If you want a less expensive, impersonal hotel just to sleep and leave, well, this might not fit your needs. However, if you want a beautiful,well manicured setting, 300 year old trees along a peaceful river, this is the place. The staff was welcoming, personal and professional. The rooms are small (good lighting, great water pressure, air conditioning, WIFI, armoire,... More

I had no idea that such a beautiful inn could be in a town like Glen Rose. They are located in a gorgeous spot on the river, accented with some ancient oak trees. There is a pool that we took advantage of on the hot day we were there. The innkeeper is very gracious. You will enjoy your stay there.

This was our first stay at Inn on the River but it won't be our last. Even though the river was rising from several days of rain (chairs were swept away the night before in the rushing waters), the relaxing atmosphere never changed. From gracious hospitality to wonderful breakfast, we could not have asked for anything else...other than a few... More

My husband and I enjoyed a one night stay at the end of April. The Inn is located on the river just down the street from the historic square. It was an easy, less than an hour, drive via the toll road from Fort Worth. The buildings, rooms and grounds are beautifully maintained. The hospitality so warm and inviting. We... More
