Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed · Private Jacuzzi/Hot Tub · Barbecue

Located near the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Texas, this 1,200-square-foot cabin rental is a multi-level retreat with two bedrooms and one bathroom and can sleep up to five guests. Guests here can indulge in the indoor hot tub, enjoy the sunshine deck and relax in the infra-red sauna. Guests will also find outdoor showers, a labyrinth and 900 plus acres to explore.

The main floor is an open area with the kitchen, conversation area, dining table, and built-in hot tub. The nicely equipped kitchen comes set with equipment for cooking and preparing meals, as well as a dishwasher, a gas stove and an oven. The hall leading to the upstairs brings guests to a half-bathroom and the laundry-workout room area with the infra-red sauna, and other equipment. Upstairs, guests will have the main bedroom with a door onto the sunshine deck and another living area with a wood-burning stove. There are two upstairs bedrooms with queen-size beds and an extra single futon. Inside, guests will have central heating and air-conditioning.

There is covered parking, and a covered patio with a huge Fossil Stone table and a propane grill. Jill Sablosky limestone art benches grace the labyrinth area in the front yard. This rental is just under a mile off the county road which takes you to Fossil Rim’s Overlook and into Glen Rose, but far enough off the road for quiet and solitude. Located on hill country-like terrain with miles of trails, this rental offers perfect privacy for couples, small families, artists, and anyone wanting a get-away personal wellness and cleansing retreat.

This rental is a great starting point to explore the 26 miles of fossil-laden trails on our organically and sustainably managed 900-acre ranch and sanctuary. Outside, guests will have a gas grill, with propane and a patio with seating for six.

This house was designed by a tinkerer, yacht builder, and hot tub lover! There is also a studio next door for musicians, yoga enthusiasts, dancers, and others to use. Read More
