Fossil Rim is a very nice place to visit if you love animals. The work they do there is spectacular. There are quite a few places to stay in the small town of Glen Rose, but if you want to stay on site, The Lodge at Fossil Rim is your only choice. While the house and grounds are beautiful, the rooms are just average. There are two downstairs rooms which share a bath. There are two rooms on the second floor which have private baths and one huge suite on the third floor. The staff is friendly, but the place needs a bit of polishing. Since there were four of us, we took the two downstairs rooms. Our mattress was very hard and we did not have any extra pillows or blankets (which we really needed). The lamps in one of the rooms were so poor that we had to get another out of the living room to see. These may seem like small inconveniences, but the prices here are very high. OUr rooms were $150/night each. If you decide to stay, choose the rooms upstairs - they seemed better equipped although they are also more expensive. They provide breakfast, but you must go down to the safari camp to eat. The tour of the property is $45.00/pp but it was very interesting. It was led by volunteers and they were great! The Best Western in town is really a better choice.
