“Memories are made here!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

This is our 3rd time to stay here- at the request of our children! The farm animals and even the resident puppy have become part of our spring break tradition! There are TV's in the units, but my kids choose to brush and feed the donkeys and horses - play tether ball or swing on the tire swing! Thank you Country Woods Inn for being a true family getaway!

Just spent our weekend enjoying the hospitality at Country Woods Inn. It was our second visit. We love the location and the country experience. We found it convenient for visiting Fossil Rim and Dinosaur World with the grand children, then enjoyed the animals and open spaces while at the Inn. River setting is peaceful and relaxing. We will be back;-)

We come to this wonderful setting anytime we need a getaway. You can't help but instantly relax and be happy. It isn't far from Dallas / Fort Worth but still feels like you are away from it all. The area is a nice place with good shops, restaurants and local attractions.

We stayed for three nights right after Christmas and I don't even know what to say. My family just loved this place so much. It was magical. We have two children, 2 and 5, and we stayed in the Saddle House. It was a good size for our family and had room for a pack and play for our daughter. I loved the meadow view from the Saddle House and it was also within sight of a little play area and a few tree swings that completely captivated my children. It was a quiet time to be there and at moments I felt like we were just alone at our family farm (without all the work!). When we planned our trip to Glen Rose, we thought Fossil Rim would be the big draw, but in fact it was Country Woods Inn. We hardly wanted to leave and ended up extending our stay an extra night.

As others have mentioned, the owner has thought of so many charming little details, such as bird-watching supplies, firefly jars, firepits, picnic baskets, lists of activities, red wagons to haul firewood...I mean the list goes on and on. We took basically no toys and our kids were content as clams. It's a beautiful thing to watch your kids enjoy nature. It really fed all of our souls.

Beyond the meadow there are hiking trails that my son and husband enjoyed so much, hiking up to a beautiful view of the river. The river is two seconds away, as is Big Rocks park (which is basically some awesome big rocks to climb and our kids LOVED it). Short walk on a lighted river walk to downtown. The location is totally private and yet minutes from town.

And don't get me started on the animals! Goats, a horse, donkey, rabbits, geese, chickens, pigs! The goats in particular (Thomas the billy goat and a short black fellow we nicknamed Shorty!) were the sweetest things. We spent a lot of time in their pen just enjoying their company. We also loved Tomcat the horse. Apart from the occasional caretaker or other guest, it really did feel like we were alone there, visiting our family farm pets! What a treat.

I cannot recommend this place more highly for families. As another reviewer said, I could live here! A true treasure.

My team and I stayed at the Country Woods Inn this past weekend during the Spartan Race out in Glen Rose. We could not have asked for better accommodations for our team! The cabins are nice and quaint and offer everything you need to truly feel like you're at your home away from home. The kids absolutely loved the place because they have everything from a petting farm to trails to easy access to the river. The secluded location was another huge plus. It gave us the privacy we needed for the weekend. I highly recommend Country Woods Inn if you have a large party that needs a single location to meet or if you and your family just want to get away for a few days in your own little private retreat.

This is a wonderful relaxing property. The grounds are amazing with places to sit and reflect everywhere. This is the perfect place to bring children. I was on the property for a meeting, but would love to return with my grandchildren. They will love seeing the animals and playing in all of the areas designed just for them.

Room Tip: Prairie Cottage - very charming and I really liked the Sunflower Room.

Great atmosphere for families/ kids. Wouldn't recommend for a romantic get away. We stayed in the farmhouse and would look into other options if we go back. Since the house is divided into two " cottages" you can hear everything going on next door. If they get up at 7 so do you :(
My daughter loved feeding the bunnies in the morning and making necklaces in the barn.

We have 4 cabins for romantic getaways, but the Farmhouse and Prairiehouse are large houses divided into wings for reunions, weddings or groups that generally need more space. Our apologies for not clarifying that during your reservation process. We 're very glad your daughter liked the Barnyard!
