This rental is located just a short distance away from Glen Rose and is the original ranch manager's house and overflow housing. It has been turned into an artfully furnished spacious guest house with five bedrooms. These five bedrooms can fit up to 10 guests—two rooms have king-size beds, two have queen-size beds, and one has two single beds. Additional futons and couches can sleep six to eight more. Three living areas flow together so groups can gather in one area, or small groups can spread out. This cozy, elegant ranch style house makes guests feel right at home for family gatherings, reunions, board meetings, and more.
Central heating and air conditioning, as well as free Wi-Fi, come included. The fireplace features local petrified wood. The well-equipped kitchen comes set with essentials. Guests will also enjoy having a washer and a dryer, a covered porch in the front, and a patio out back. Guests will also have dishes for up to 12 guests, a gas stove, an oven, a microwave, and a Vitamix. There are plenty of tables and chairs for both indoor and outdoor eating. This rental is close enough to the county road for quick trips to Fossil Rim’s Overlook Area with the cafe, gift shop and Animal Contact Area, and into Glen Rose, but far enough off the road for quiet and solitude.
Outside, guests will find an outdoor grill and stunning views, as well as a fire pit. A covered porch runs the entire length of the property, making it another gathering spot, whether to eat and meet together or just enjoy the majestic live oaks, pastures, country breezes, birds, deer, and surroundings. This rental is a great starting point to explore the ranch's trails and ravines.
Guests here will have all the amenities they would find at home and more. This property offers several different types of accommodations and all differ in size and facilities. Each house has a washer and dryer. We stock coffee, tea and cooking basics. Each house has a propane grill with a second tank. While we do have fire pits, we are often under burn bans due to our remote location, and having Fossil Rim Wildlife Center as our downwind neighbor! There is plenty of parking, even for boats and campers!

We rest our houses 3 to 24-hours before cleaning (our post inspection and garbage removal is done with masks and gloves), with at least 24 hours after guests (if something happens and we have to go in, we go in with masks and gloves). We have supplemented our natural, non-toxic cleaners with EPA approved disinfectants/sanitizers, and a spray we use on our way out. We also leave these and other supplies for guests to use, should they feel the need. We wash all linens and bedcovers between guests. When we can, we hang bedcovers and linens outside for that extra solar cleanse. We have removed things, and changed things (pillows, throws, toys, extra spices, condiments in fridge) we didn't feel we could disinfect thoroughly. We monitor ourselves for signs of Covid-19, and when off the ranch, we wear masks, spatial distance and avoid crowds, theaters, restaurants, etc.
