Perfect getaway in a gorgeous part of Texas
What a gem. Already planning our return trip. First, the basics - The cabin was clean, cozy and very comfortable. The AC was great. The shower was hot immediately and had strong pressure. In addition to that, Stan and Kay's property is beautiful. There is so much to explore but the beautiful, clear river is the highlight. It was pretty shallow, which meant the water was very warm. Perfect for everyone to lounge and enjoy, including dogs and little ones. There's a huge long "beach" of river rocks to sit on and enjoy with a few shady spots. The river bed is sand and river rocks so it's easy to walk along and see where you're stepping. It's very quiet, peaceful and secluded, we didn't see anyone else out there all weekend. Stan and Kay also have a really cool fire pit at the top of the property with 6 swinging benches, great spot to have a cold beverage and enjoy the sunset and stars. Best of all, Stan and Kay are absolutely wonderful hosts. We spent quite a bit of time with Stan as he showed us around the property, which he's deeply passionate about and proud of (as he should be). We weren't there half a day before we were already planning when we could return. Enjoy!
Perfect little cabin for a family of 4!!
This little cabin was perfect for our family of 4 to get away and relax! We enjoyed roaming the property visiting the animals and hanging out on the Brazos. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed. Will definitely be back!
Perfect for a relaxing, fun weekend
The cabin was adorable, and perfect for a small family or couples weekend. There was a Beautiful access to the river and the site wasvery close to fun activities and right outside of an adorable historic Texas town with antique stores. Also, Dinosaur hunters of all ages would be in heaven. The owners hospitality is so genuine and refreshing, and we will recommend this to all of our family and friends.
Everything they said and more!
The little cabin was absolutely perfect. Exactly what we had in mind for our 38th anniversary. A place in the country but close enough to check out the sites and activities in Glen Rose and Granbury. We even talked about how perfect one like it would be for us when we decide to downsize from our 4 bedroom house! The Meyers were very friendly and checked on us from time to time. The cabin is just a short walk from the Brazos River and the Meyers own some miniature donkeys that are closer to their home just up the hill. I can't remember the last time I roasted weenies and marshmallows over a fire pit until this stay. All in all I give this cabin and area 5 stars! I home to return someday to the little cabin in Rainbow TX.
My husband and I stayed here with our 8 year old and our shitzu. The cabin is very clean! There is probably just about everything you will need in the cabin. We mainly stayed out but it was great only having to drive a short distance to come back to the cabin! 10-15 minutes tops to most attractions! The owner is very nice, he brought us fresh eggs on Saturday from his chickens and we ate them Sunday they were so good! The land is big with lots of room, be careful exploring we did find a snake in back of the cabin, so stay away from the leaves which it does say in the manual. The cabin itself is modern but is quite small. Perfect for us and for a couple it would be ideal. The only small thing is the bed. the headboard is a door very cute idea but I'm not sure if it's the bed that makes no much noise or the headboard, either way it makes lots of creaks and groans when you move BUT comfortable non the less! We will for sure be back! thank you for having us!
The cabin was great. It had everything we needed. The owners are very kind. My 9yr son is still begging to go back in the summer. We loved feeding the animals, fishing and hanging out by the campfire.
We are located 65 miles southwest of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and just 10 minutes from historic Glen Rose, Texas at the rim of the Texas Hill Country. Somervell County is the home of Dinosaur Valley State Park and Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve. The Brazos River provides canoeing and tubing, bank fishing, or just lazy nature walks.
