About the property

1 bedroom 1 bath cottage

Unique cabin/cottage with breathtaking panoramic views of Chalk Mountain, and close proximity to antique shops and eateries in Glen Rose, Texas. This beautiful 740 square foot luxury cottage overlooking the stunning views from Chalk Mountain, a short 10 miles from the historic town of Glen Rose. Relax and breathe deeply as you enter onto this 30 acre property. This unique luxury "cottage" was designed and decorated to reflect the look and feel of a fine Texas Ranch House combining Old-Texas charm with a uniquely open layout. This is an architectural gem, with gorgeous and plentiful, modern amenities.

Outside, the wide porch offers a cool spot of shade overlooking a magnificent view for relaxing and looking out over the surrounding hills. In the evenings, it's a perfect place to gather with friends or snuggle up with family. Far from the lights of the city, at night you'll see the stars.

A gorgeous swimming pool was just completed in 2015. Just a short walk down the hill from the cottage. The pool is right out the back door of our main home that we currently reside in. However, if we happen to be home during your rental we will give you complete privacy if you choose to use the pool. Most of the time we are gone the entire stay of someone rental. Feel free to come relax around the pool and enjoy the amazing views.

What makes this cottage unique

If you need to take your significant other somewhere to impress him or her then this is the place for you. If your not a camper and don't care for a rustic cabin that make you feel like you are still camping again this is the place for you. If you just want to escape by yourself and enjoy the beautiful view while sitting on the porch drinking your coffee and reading your favorite book again this is the place for you. If you just got married or perhaps celebrating your anniversary this is the place for you. Maybe you just need time to reconnect with one another. We all know jobs, kids and their busy schedules and just life in general sometimes makes us weary. A few days of R & R here will let you recharge. There isn't a better place to do that at! No kids allowed sorry no exceptions. This cottage was decorated with adults in mind.

Decent cabin getaway.

  • 3 of 5

If you are planning to stay here, you probably should have a 4x4. There are fairly deep ruts in the unpaved drive to the cabin. Also, the water temp in the shower is reversed, while the sinks are plumbed correctly...not a good thing to figure out after being outside in the cold and wind all day at a Spartan event.

Wonderful, private and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is near to the DFW area and yet is out in the middle of beautiful countryside where you can enjoy great views. We loved the kitchen that had everything we needed to cook all the food we brought with us. Tucked off away from the rest of the world, this cottage is super private, romantic, and has everything to enjoy time away with someone you love!

Stunning view and peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

This property can not be defined by photos. The depth of the view can only be experienced in person. My husband (fiancee at the time) and I were looking for a quiet location to escape to after our small wedding ceremony that we had planned to do at our home. After reviewing the photos I asked Laquita if she minded us just having the ceremony out there. She graciously agreed and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Myself, my fiancee , our kids, 2 witness and our pastor. No decorations even needed due to the beauty of the backyard and the view. We then spent the weekend in the stunning cabin, leaving only for dinner and hiking. The attention to detail throughout the cabin is noticeable from the moment you step through the door. The cabin was completely ready for us. Temperature was set, scented warmers were out and everything was stocked. The size is PERFECT for a couple. I could have stayed inside all weekend, however the restaurant that was recommended by the owner was WELL worth the jaunt outside of the cabin. Being outside by the fire and eating dinner under the stars was just what the doctor ordered for this overworked couple. My wedding was already going to be memorable, Laquita and her beautiful location made sure that it was also stress free and enjoyable. We plan on coming back every year for our anniversary, even if it is only for a night. I would seriously recommend this location to anyone!. The description on the website will not prepare you for the beauty of this cabin. I have stayed in numerous cabins throughout the last 20 years and this is the first time it has surprised me by overly exceeding my expectations. The ONLY thing even remotely disappointing was the hot tub not being directly attached to the cabin, but it was still my favorite cabin rental of the last 20 years.

Wonderful and Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a couple of days away from everything and this was the perfect place. The view from back porch was a great place to sit and have the morning coffee. The cabin was recently updated and done very well. Everything we could think of that we needed was there (we are even going to buy a set of the cookware after using what was provided). The bed was very comfortable and we both woke well rested. The bathroom was spacious and the large shower was very nice.

During the day, the pool area was a short walk away and it was more than we were hoping for. It was very nice to be able to lounge around all day while enjoying the sound of the waterfalls. The view was even better from this part of the property.

Be aware that cell phone coverage is hit and miss (which was a plus for us). Also, there isn't a TV signal which we anticipated and brought our favorite movies which we watched each evening.

LaQuita was very helpful throughout the entire process and was quick to respond to each question very quickly. The cabin is very well maintained and we had no issues with anything while we were there.

Overall, this was a fantastic find on VRBO and we've already suggested to a few of our friends to check it out for a couple's get away. We can't wait to go back.

Beautiful cabin, beautiful view, fantastic owner

  • 4 of 5

My older daughter and I stayed in this cabin for a girls weekend. It's a great place to just chill out or there are things to go do nearby. The cabin was beautifully decorated. It looked like it was ready for an interior decorating magazine photo shoot. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the cooking utensils, pots, pans, bowls, cookie sheet, colander, measuring cups and spoons, can opener, etc. that we needed. It all looked brand new as well. I noticed a few small appliances like a blender but I didn't take not of what the others were. The bedding and towels were really plush. My daughter fell in love with a very soft black blanket in the living room that was perfect for snuggling up in. ;) The view was beautiful. We saw a simply stunning sunset there and the stars were amazing. There was very little light pollution from the surrounding towns so you could see more stars than you probably knew existed. The owner had a fire built and ready for us to light in the very nice fire pit which also had stone benches built around it. We didn't end up using it because it is summer in Texas but it was a nice touch. There is a nice outdoor seating area separate from the house a bit and a small table for two on the back porch where you can eat while enjoying the sunset and view. The owner was lovely to work with, prompt with answers to our questions and very helpful. She even left us a nice, personal note for our arrival. The only downside that I'll mention in case it is a concern for you, is that we could hear road noise (cars and trucks going by) from the nearby road. All in all renting this cabin was a wonderful experience and made for a very enjoyable weekend.
