Peaceful Retreat

5 on May 12, 2014

My husband and I have been escaping to this establishment for almost 20-years. The facility and staff provide a peaceful, comfortable, and leisurely experience. Besides a wonderful breakfast, one is welcome to have an excellent meal in a quiet dining room overlooking stunning 300-year-old trees. Sitting on the shaded river bank watching nature is one of our favorite things to do while at the Inn. Thank you again for another exceptional visit.

Perfect setting for rest and relaxation!

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn on the River and can't wait to return! The grounds were beautiful, with plenty of places to sit and enjoy! The pool was beautiful, and I can't wait to try it out! The restaurant was totally fabulous...and the homemade cookies every afternoon were a lovely bonus to go with my iced tea. The rooms were like stepping back in time, but the feather down mattress toppers were most comfortable. Again, we can't wait to go back! Get a message while you're was the best we've ever had!

What a beautiful B&B! Comfortable rooms, fabulous property along a clear river where you could easily lose yourself in the rhythm and sounds of Mother Nature - all in a delightful town. We'll be back.

great B&B

I have stayed at this B&B several times. It is so nice to see everything is still functioning exceptionally well. This visit was a last minute reservation and I was pleased to hear that space was available. I also had dinner reservations for that evening, with a follow up call on our choices for our meal. I even made a special diet request since my husband cannot have dessert. Dinner was prepared beautifully, and was perfectly savory in flavor. We brought our own wine which the Inn chilled for us. Service for dinner and breakfast was paced nicely and had a high attention to detail. After dinner we strolled downtown Glen Rose and ended up sitting along the Paluxy River, behind the Inn, gazing at the stars enjoying the night air. We rested quite well in our room, which was comfortable and Quiet. Everyone there was concerned if we needed anything at anytime... I HIGHLY recommend the Inn on the River for a quick respite getaway.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Although an Inn rather than a B&B (a few more rooms), the amenities and atmosphere are far more than we expected. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner and service were outstanding. The surrounding garden and grounds offer plenty of quiet time to relax outdoors. We will be returning!

Inn on the river was a beautiful setting for my brothers wedding weekend! The staff was magnificent and the scenery is breathtaking. Plus, you can walk straight downtown and enjoy a selection of shops!

The Inn on the River Refreshed our Souls

5 on August 08, 2013

I took the virtual tour of The Inn on the River, I knew we had to stay there. I knew we had to sit in those white chairs facing the river, shaded by the beautiful ancient oak trees. I called the Inn and spoke with Ms. Amy. She asked if this trip was for a special occassion such as an anniversary or honeymoon. I explained that this would probably be the last vacation I would take with my sweet husband. She was so wonderful and said that they'd make sure that we had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. I cannot thank the Ms. Amy, Ms. Catherine, Ms. Katie, and Mr. Ernie enough. Our room was so soothing. The feather bed and pillows were a piece of heaven! The grounds were so beautiful and the trees did not disappoint. Each morning, we sat in the white chairs and watched the birds search for food in the river. The squirrels danced in the trees, and we were charmed by the flight of numerous hummingbirds. The food is beyond description. Breakfast each morning was served with a smile and kindness. We thought the food could not get any better after eating breakfast, but oh my goodness, you must make a reservation for dinner! Each course was better than the preceding one! As we dined by candlelight, we watched the squirrels and hummingbirds dance around the water feature. The Inn is very quiet and relaxed. The care you receive from the wonderful staff cannot be duplicated. You must stay at The Inn on the River!

Took a chance, armed only with info found on the internet...we were not disappointed. Easy to relax and take a break from everything in this beautiful setting. The breakfasts are sensational! We'll go back!
